Hi everyone!
Thanks a lot for the great feedback on my 2021 retrospective: as you can see, I am quite serious about this newsletter and will try to keep building it in public.
Lots of links this week: I’m covering 3 weeks due to my Christmas break 😝 hard to comment everything.
You know I love everything about cross-platform. My favorite pick this week is React-Native-Skia
Beautiful end of year for Remix: lots of blog posts, many positive feedback, a newsletter, and a whole ecosystem is setting up.
Vercel continues to hire massively. Positive community feedback on Turborepo, and we start to understand better how it is different from Nx.

Great overview of all the popular JavaScript projects in 2021 (based on GitHub stars), including many useful comments. A good way to catch-up with what you may have missed in 2021.
I had the opportunity to comment the Build Tools section.
Swyx wrote a good intro to Turborepo, particularly useful if you don’t have time to watch the video.
Note: Nx is a similar project, older and more featured (growing fast this year). They created a page to compare Nx and Turborepo. Jared Palmer comments: “Turbo aims to underdo the competition”: do less (on purpose) and be a simpler tool. In my opinion there’s room for both, and we should see them grow in 2022.
