Instant Loading Web Apps With An Application Shell Architecture — Google Developers Instant Loading Web Apps With An Application Shell Architecture By Addy Osmani & Matt Gaunt Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) describe how a web app can progressively change with use and user consent to give the user a more native-app-like experience with offline support, push notifications and being installable to the home-screen. They can also gain substantial performance benefits thanks to intelligent service worker caching of your UI shell for repeat visits. This allows you to focus on speed, giving your web apps the same instant loading and regular updates you’re used to seeing in native applications. It’s all possible using an Application Shell architecture — a companion to this new way of thinking.
Transducers.js Round 2 with Benchmarks A few weeks ago I released my transducers library and explained the algorithm behind it. It's a wonderfully simple technique for high-performant transformations like map and filter and was created by Clojure (mostly Rich Hickey I think). Over the past week I've been hard at work polishing and benchmarking it. Today I published version 0.2.0 with a new API and completely refactored internals that make it easy to use and get performance that beats other popular utility libraries. (This is a different library than the recently released one from Cognitect) A Few Benchmarks#
