Some Thoughts on Server State in Remix
Run Next and Remix on the same server
An interesting setup, which shows that we can mix Remix and Next.js inside the same Node.js server. This help design an incremental migration strategy to adopt or assess Remix.
Remix, SQLite, and Prisma, Oh my!
Another nice demonstration of the features of Remix. Being able to call Prisma from loader functions is quite powerful. It reminds other solutions like Next.js (but in a more co-located way) and server components.
Latest release for this React video production lib. The Remotion player is now stable. A new Error Overlay and an Audiogram template. The next release will surely be 3.0 with AWS lambda serverless rendering support and the ability to encode videos very quickly!
Avoid waterfalls of queries in Remix loaders: even if Remix manages to parallelize the requests, you still have to use
Promise.all ()inside a loader function

A New Container Query Polyfill That Just Works
Chris Coyier's analysis on a new polyfill for container queries: a new, eagerly awaited CSS feature extremely useful for the encapsulation of responsive design (media queries) in component-based frameworks like React. This polyfill looks usable today for client-rendered apps, if you need SSR support it will unfortunately lead to FOUC until browsers support this.
