In our previous post, we talked about how to improve an app’s performance and user experience by incrementally updating our app’s UI as we received a stream of data from our API. Our example app was built on the Fetch API and can-ndjson-stream to get a ReadableStream of NDJSON and render the stream in our app.
Ever wish you could send your data as a stream so that the client can start manipulating it and rendering it as it arrives? Tired of waiting for your entire JSON object to resolve before your users see anything interesting? As you may have seen in my previous article on David Walsh Blog, this is now possible with the Fetch API! Stream responses are supported in Chrome 52 and in development in Firefox and Edge. This quick tutorial will show you how to set up a simple Express API to emit a ReadableStream of NDJSON.
Lots of notable releases, community projects, and technical content were released in the DoneJS community last month! This post outlines some of the highlights from June 2017.
The slim loader is a new minimal production loader for StealJS apps. You can think of slim as taking all of the useful features that StealJS provides and stripping them away to only what you actually use in your application. This means that your users don't download any code that you're not using, which improves the speed of your application.
User testing is a great way to validate assumptions and gain new insights about how people interact with our websites and apps. When it comes to eCommerce (and in particular mobile commerce or “mCommerce”) it’s critical to understand how people find and purchase products online. This was evident on one project where we were tasked with testing the mobile website design for retail membership giant, Sam’s. As it turns out, there are many common navigation patterns that aren’t nearly as effective as people might think.

In many ways, hiring software services is similar to buying a used car. In this article, I’ll show how you can use research on used car market economics to improve your ability to hire high quality developers.
Web application startup time has a big impact on user engagement. When writing client-side applications, we deal with this problem in a variety of ways such as:
The new Recipes section on CanJS.com now has three new guides: Playlist Editor, TodoMVC with StealJS, and Weather Report Guide (Advanced)!
