Nuxt is the hybrid Vue framework for both server-side and client-side rendering using Node.js server features to provide the data. The new major version, Nuxt 3, is about to be released – so it's a good time to compare it with its older brother, Next.js.

React Native AMA – accessible apps

Building accessible apps is not easy. Which is why the team at Formidable created this handy accessibility toolkit for React Native, called Accessible Mobile Applications (AMA). It integrates multiple tools to simplify the dev process, such as runtime checks, pre-created accessible components, guidelines, and checklists on steps to follow during app development.

State of E2E testing in Angular

The Angular team has officially deprecated support for the Protractor end-to-end (E2E) testing tool, and has decided to support alternatives. This time they don't focus on a single framework, but rather on a variety of tools suggested by the community – such as Cypress, Nightwatch, WebdriverIO, and Playwright. However, Protractor will continue for some time. Find out more in the article.
