Javascript ES6 Cheatsheet

A cheatsheet containing ES6 tips, tricks, best practices and code snippet examples for your day to day workflow. Contributions are welcome!

A nice resource to get you up to speed with ES6.

Facebook Stadium

With 650 million sports fans, Facebook is the world’s largest stadium. People already turn to Facebook to celebrate, commiserate, and talk trash with their friends and other fans. Now we’ve built a place devoted to sports so you can get the feeling you’re watching the game with your friends even when you aren’t together.

It’s going to be interesting to see if this is a success. Are you going to use it? What do you think about this product?

Visualization of data flow inside Tor Network

The Tor network is a group of volunteer-operated servers (relays) that allows people to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Tor’s users employ this network by connecting through a series of virtual tunnels rather than making a direct connection, thus allowing both organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy.

The software behind this visualization is hosted on Github.

Feature Toggles

Feature toggles are a powerful technique, allowing teams to modify system behavior without changing code. They fall into various usage categories, and it’s important to take that categorization into account when implementing and managing toggles. Toggles introduce complexity. We can keep that complexity in check by using smart toggle implementation practices and appropriate tools to manage our toggle configuration, but we should also aim to constrain the number of toggles in our system.

A good read about feature toggles.

Beautify javascript

This little beautifier will reformat and reindent bookmarklets, ugly JavaScript, unpack scripts packed by Dean Edward’s popular packer, as well as deobfuscate scripts processed by javascriptobfuscator.com.

This is good help if you want to be consistent and write beautiful code.
