Making the Node.js REPL more productive

Project-specific REPLs for Node.js I’m a bit surprised this functionality isn’t in the box, nonetheless: local-repl saves you from typing out imports every time you open a new Node.js REPL. You specify the modules and objects that you want to automatically import in either package.json or .replrc.js. It also lets you use await in the REPL without wrapping your code in async functions. That sounds quite nice.

Slack's desktop app bogging you down? Here's a speed-focused alternative.

A cross-platform, open source Slack app that’s built for speed?! Shut up and take my money admiration!

Depending on how much you like your job, you might consider that more of a feature than a bug. 😉

Automatic visual diffing with Puppeteer

Monica Dinculescu: I did a little song-and-dance that sets up Puppeteer , takes screenshots of your app (like, all the routes you care about), and then compares them to the “golden” ones. If they match, your test passes! It only works with Chrome (because Puppeteer), but that’s not a big deal since this is the kind of thing you only put in your devDependencies. The results are super cool in your test suite output:

next-update answers the question: "Is it safe to upgrade my npm module's dependencies?"

Upgrading your library's dependencies can be a scary proposition. Not upgrading your library's dependencies can be even scarier. Thankfully, next-update is here to help. Let's imagine: You would like to update lodash and async to latest versions, but not sure if this would break anything. With next-update it is easy. You run the next-update command and it tells you whether or not updating any of your dependencies breaks you tests. If you don't have tests, I guess you should go write some...
