New Template Changes

Why??

Hypertext On Whatever you'd Like

HTMX and ajax

Simple HTML api

Swiss-Army knife for ajax

  • Now any element, not just anchors and forms, can issue an HTTP request
  • Now any event, not just clicks or form submissions, can trigger requests
  • Now any HTTP verb, not just GET and POST, can be used
  • Now any element, not just the entire window, can be the target for update by the request

Boosting

Automatic Spa-ifys normal links

Like Swup/pjax/turbolinks but works

Preserves animations across swaps

Does a lot:

Javascript Build

Hot Reload

Django template reload powered by vite plugin

Run as a separate process, similar to next.js

Fast!

Typescript

New @ alias

Eslint + prettier checking

Use with Care!

CSS and Styling

Editor plugins

Standard spacing + typography in tailwind.js config

SCSS

That said, Vite does provide built-in support for .scss, .sass, .less, .styl and .stylus

Autoprefix

?????

FontAwesome 5.0

Not married to this one

If we pull this out, lets do it soon as it's extra on the wire

Normal Static files

System Management

Works like pipenv but faster

More collaborators

GoodBye Virtualenv Wrapper

Welcome .venv folder 

.envrc file controls behavior - allow shipping activation behavior

Still using .env to control variables

Closer env local to prod

Easier Install

Apt install direnv &&
echo 'eval "$(direnv hook zsh)"' >> .zshrc

 

Linux

OSX

brew install direnv &&
echo 'eval "$(direnv hook zsh)"' >> .zshrc

 

Debugging and linting

Configure with environment variable "PYTHONBREAKPOINT"

 

d = {'key': {1: 'one'}}
ic(d['key'][1])

class klass():
    attr = 'yep'
ic(klass.attr)

Prints

ic| d['key'][1]: 'one'
ic| klass.attr: 'yep'
from icecream import ic

def foo():
    ic()
    first()

    if expression:
        ic()
        second()
    else:
        ic()
        third()

Prints

ic| example.py:4 in foo()
ic| example.py:11 in foo()

Remember that you configure with breakpoint
