What the web looks like without JavaScript

A Berlin-based web developer — who codes JavaScript for a living — decided to go an entire day without JavaScript.
Let’s face it — in an insane world where the average webpage is 2.4 megabytes — the same size as the 1993 game Doom — turning off JavaScript completely can seem like a sane thing to do.
Well, here are her main observations after disabling JavaScript in the browser for a day:
  1. The web is really fast without JavaScript
  2. There aren’t any ads. No auto-playing videos or “tell us your email address” pop-ups.
  3. But a lot of websites don’t work at all. Images don’t load, and forms can’t be submitted.
    Here’s what several popular websites she visited looked like with JavaScript disabled:
  1. YouTube’s videos and thumbnails don’t load.
  2. Netflix doesn’t load anything except for its logo in the upper left hand corner.
  3. Amazon looks a bit odd, but it still works.
  4. Wikipedia still works great.
  5. Twitter shows the normal website (with full content) for a brief moment, then redirects to mobile.twitter.com (the old one, not the spanky new React one, of course)
  6. The Google Chrome download page just fails completely, with no notice, only a blank white page.
  7. Without JS, Google search still does what it’s best at: searching.

CoolorsCoolorsis a super fast color scheme generator. You can explore thousands of pre-existing color schemes (each one features five colors). Or, you can generate your own in a matter of minutes. Once you go to the “generate” page, hit the space bar to start with a different color scheme, and then you can adjust each color’s hue, saturation, and brightness accordingly.

Web GradientsWeb Gradientsis a collection of almost 200 background gradients, created by the itmeo team. You can use each of these content backdrops for any part of your website.

Color Hunt On Color Hunt

Woot, 2.4.0 is out! : vue.js

FeaturesFull SSR + async component support in core: SSR now supports rendering async components used anywhere and the client also supports async components during the hydration phase. This means async components / code-splitting now just works during SSR and is no longer limited at the route level. (9cf6646 & 7404091) Easier creation of wrapper components: (6118759) New component option: inheritAttrs. Turns off the default behavior where
parent scope non-prop bindings are automatically inherited on component root
as attributes. New instance properties: $attrs & $listeners. $attrs contains the parent-scope attribute bindings that were not recognized as props, and $listeners contains the v-on listeners registered in the parent scope (without the .native modifier). These are essentially aliases of $vnode.data.attrs and $vnode.data.on, but are reactive. Combining these allows us to simplify a component like this down into this: <div> <inputv-bind="$attrs"v-on=&qu…
