In software development, utilities are software tools that add functionality to your code or improve the performance of your application.
In this article, we'll go through a fantastic selection of tools to help you be more productive as a software developer.
Cypress is a modern web-based next-generation front-end testing tool.
Although Cypress is frequently compared to Selenium, the two are fundamentally and structurally distinct. Cypress isn't limited in the same way that Selenium is.
RxJS is a reactive programming library that uses Observables to make composing asynchronous or callback-based applications easier. This project rebuilds Reactive-Extensions/RxJS, improving efficiency, modularity, and debugability while remaining mainly backward compatible, with some breaking changes that minimize the API surface.
It works with Babel, TypeScript, Node, React, Angular, Vue, and more frameworks.
Nest uses Express behind the hood but has interoperability with various other libraries, such as Fastify, allowing for easy usage of the numerous third-party plugins available.
Mock components, services, and more out of annoying dependencies for simplification of Angular testing
It enables you to create apps that operate consistently across environments (client, server, and native) and are simple to test. It also offers a fantastic developer experience, with live code editing and a time-traveling debugger.
Husky improves your commits and more.
When you commit or push, you can use it to lint your commit messages, run tests, lint code, etc.
Promise-based HTTP client for the browser and node.js
faker.js - generate massive amounts of fake data in the browser and node.js
Puppeteer is a Node module that allows you to manipulate Chrome or Chromium using the DevTools Protocol. Puppeteer is configured to run full (non-headless) Chrome or Chromium by default, although this can be changed.
16. Light House
Lighthouse analyzes web apps and pages, collecting current performance metrics and insights on developer best practices.
17. React Query
Hooks for fetching, caching, and updating asynchronous data in React
Nodemon is a program that aids in developing node.js apps by automatically restarting them when file changes in the directory are detected.
No additional changes to your code or development technique are required with nodemon. nodemon is a wrapper for node.js that can be used instead of node.js.
19. React Error Overlay
react-error-overlay is an overlay that displays when there is a runtime error.
20. HTTP Proxy Middleware
Node.js proxying is made simple. Configure proxy middleware easily for connecting, express, browser-sync, and many more.
The parcel is a zero-configuration build tool for the web. It combines a tremendous out-of-the-box development experience with a scalable architecture that can take your project from just getting started to a massive production application.
PM2 is a load balancer-assisted production process manager for Node.js applications. It lets you keep programs alive indefinitely, reload them without causing downtime, and simplify typical system administration duties.
I hope you find these resources helpful 😊
