Introducing Insomnia Designer
Insomnia is my favourite REST API client. I am very excited about just announced Insomnia Designer — a tool to help us edit and share OpenAPI specifications. It is looking polished, well-though piece of software, just like the Insomnia Core.
GitHub Codespaces — Your instant dev environment
Another month and another big announcement from GitHub team. The full Visual Studio Code experience without leaving GitHub website. Really full experience — code, build, debug, manage plugins, install dependencies etc. Always accessible in your browser. List of an early-access testers is open and I cannot wait to try it out. There is a bunch more cool stuff announced on GitHub Satellite 2020. Have a look at this short video by Bytesized that summarized all new features in 15 minutes.
Exciting Things on the Horizon For CSS Layout
Quick summary of cool layout features that are coming to CSS specification soon. Thanks for sharing Michelle Barker.
Introducing MongoDB for VS Code
I have never been a big fun of MongoDB Compass, the official GUI client for MongoDB. It is a very heavy, slow Electron based app with less than average user experience. Announcement of MongoDB for VSCode is the best thing that ever happened to people who need to browse, manipulate or test databases. It is fast, user experience is second to none, it has just right amount of features needed to accomplish majority of tasks. Thanks MongoDB team!
