Why I create my first NPM package
A useful practice when you work with a specific stack, is to create generic stuff for this stack. This is the fundamental principle of a framework, library, package, etc.
With generic and reusable code, your project will start faster. All that's left is to write the business rules part of your project.
As CSS framework, my preference goes to Bulma.
All I expect from a CSS framework.
I dislike make the same thing again and again. It's useless and repetitive tasks create bugs.
Some of basic components stays the same on all projects
That's why I create a NPM package called react-components.
It's a library of basic components made with Bulma and React Typescript.
The objectives :
- Learn how to create and publish a package.
- Learn more about open source not by participating but by being at the origin of a (very small) project.
- Learn how to manage advice and criticism about my project to progress as a developer.
- Have basics components available immediately.
Nowadays, This project is under development and contains lots of beginner mistakes.
I work on it as a side project, between all my side projects, so it's progressing very slowly.
I think to make more posts about this work and all the challenges I meet.
If you want know more about this project or how to contribute, don't be shy. Comments and DM on Twitter are open.
