Generators in JavaScript

Working with infinite data streams

Hi! It’s Tania.

If you’ve never used generators in JavaScript but are curious about what they’re capable of, check out my latest article:

Understanding Generators in JavaScript

Generators are great for working with infinite data streams. Generators can do everything async/await does, and more. They’re a pretty powerful feature of JavaScript, so I encourage you to check it out!

I’ve also been working on writing an article about React/Redux, so if you know React but haven’t delved into Redux because it looked too confusing, that will be coming up soon.

A newsletter post by Joel Hooks (of Egghead.io) recently got me thinking about how a blog is laid out. Right now, for example, my site is simply a list of posts from newest to oldest. But this isn’t very useful for anyone. As he states:

Seriously, who cares when anything on my site got posted. For the vast majority of things I'm writing it makes absolutely no difference what-so-ever.

Using this newest-first approach makes the site impenetrable and less useful for me and especially for anybody that might be visiting to learn or research.

I wholeheartedly agree with this digital garden vs. blog approach, but I’m not personally sure the best way to go about organizing it. Aside from having some tags and categories, which I do, it’s still just a list of links by date. I’d like to curate the content to make it easier to find what you’re looking for, and also potentially add more varied content (right now, I don’t feel like anything but tutorials fits in to my blog, but I might add snippets, or more personal writing otherwise).

Anyway, if anyone has any ideas along those lines, I’d love to hear it! Otherwise, I’ll be writing again soon with more content. Have a great rest of the weekend!
