Choosing how to add localization to your application can be a complicated decision, because there are so many options out there. From code-based frameworks to third-party services that automatically rewrite your HTML, there is no silver bullet for localization. At Plasmic, we have been exploring the many options to better inform how we can support localization for our own application. Many tutorials assume you want to already want to use a code framework, like react-i18next, but that has implications for your team’s workflow. In this blog post we will survey different localization techniques you may be considering for your React application and discuss some of the trade-offs.
In this blog post, we will show you how to implement personalization using Next.js middleware. Traditionally, personalization was implemented on the server, which may incur many hundreds of milliseconds of latency before the user receives the content. With Next.js middleware and static site generation (SSG), we can serve rich personalized experiences entirely from the edge (i.e. CDN), resulting in significant performance improvements for your website and improved experiences for your users.
In this blog post we will show you how to implement A/B testing using Next.js middleware, first introduced in Next.js 12. When compared to other A/B testing frameworks, this method more easily fits into your existing developer workflows and inherits all of the performance benefits of Next.js, including static site generation (SSG). You’ll see that A/B tests don’t have to be onerous for either your users or your developers — every Next.js site can easily make measurable progress this way!
In this guide, we will show you how to build a video player web application with Plasmic, a visual builder for React. While many Plasmic users use it to build landing and content pages, Plasmic is actually a powerful UI builder for apps of any complexity, allowing you or your design team to rapidly iterate on rich web applications.
In this guide, we will show you how to build a crowd-sourced Pokemon Pokedex, by connecting Supabase, an open source Firebase backend alternative, with Plasmic, a visual builder for the web. While many users leverage Plasmic to quickly launch and iterate on landing pages, in this tutorial we’ll show just how powerful Plasmic can be as a general-purpose visual builder for React, which can be used to design and implement fully featured read-write applications.
After a long 2.5 years of training to get to our H3 rating, we thought it would help to share our journey and what we wished we knew when we first started; advice that could have helped us finish in <1 year. Of course this is our limited opinion, so take it all with a grain of salt and get advice from other pilots you trust.
In this blog post, I'll show you how to setup a Yubikey with both signing and authentication keys. As a driving example, I'll describe how to use a Yubikey to sign your git commits and authenticate via SSH with GitHub. Of course you can reuse this guide to authenticate with any other SSH server as well.
"Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend." Theophrastus
With only so much time on this world, it's in our best interest to use it wisely. Even with best intentions, I often find myself feeling like I could have spent my time better. These thoughts typically fall into one of three categories:
- Missed goals: You wanted to get something done this week/month/year, but it didn't happen. Now you find the task repeatedly slipping to the next week.
- Lost time: It's a long day, and hour 5 fades into hour 6. Next thing you know it's the end of the day and you wonder where the time went.
- Poor Use: People need you, emails need responses, events run over. By the end of the day, you've spent your time on a bunch of things you never intended to spend time on.
For years, my website was a single gigantic HTML file. Adding content and making edits felt a lot like stacking Jenga blocks a mile high. While that was fun in many ways, it is 2015 and it is time to move to some form of automated system like Jekyll.
