I'm loving all of these ECMAScript 2015 features making their way into Chrome! Chrome is getting pretty close to 100% on kangax's ES6 table.

I use Sinopia for this.. Its almost identical solution. https://github.com/rlidwka/sinopia

Plus point is that these no DB requirement. Everything is managed via file system.

JavaScript Fatigue by +Eric Clemmons summarises some of the frustration felt at the tooling ecosystem this year.

While React seems to have the biggest churn, making things simpler is a goal we should apply to tooling projects across the board in 2016.

This is spot on for me. Angular2 is not much better.

I'm finding myself using giant frameworks less and less. I also appreciate Polymer a lot more as well-- you still get that composition style without needing 3 different build tools and transpilers.

+David Frahm Good question. Apple haven't confirmed they'll implement Service Workers or Web App manifest just yet, but yay progressive enhancement :)

We can also still try using apple-touch-startup-image for Splashscreens and AppCache as a fallback for SW, but thar be dragons! Hopefully the more we see PWApps implemented in 2016 it'll put sufficient pressure on them to just implement away.

Staff Developer Platform Engineer at Google
Introduction
Whoa. What are you doing on my profile page? Stalker! ; )

I'm an engineering working with the Chrome and Polymer teams at Google focusing on creating tools to help empower developers to build compelling web apps more easily. My current focus is Polymer - a sugaring library for composable web-apps based on Web Components.

In my spare time, I enjoy contributing free talks, articles and open source projects to the development community.

I'm the author of two books - "Learning JavaScript Design Patterns" and "Developing Backbone.js Applications", have contributed chapters to several Smashing books and have also created/contributed to projects such as TodoMVC, Yeoman and Web Starter Kit.

For the latest on my takes on whats going on in the world of web development, feel free to check out my blog at addyosmani.com.

After having spent so much on other barristers, with little results, I was amazed at how Paul Richmond (of Richmond Canter Immigration Barristers) handled our immigration case with such care, making the process as painless as possible. As other reviewers have mentioned, his reputation simply excels. Trying to immigrate means a mountain of paperwork and several personal details. Mr. Richmond gave us step by step instructions through the immigration procedure, and whenever we had questions, he was always quick to respond with great detail. Thoroughly going through all of our documents, Mr. Richmond made sure that everything was in order, so that the process went as smoothly as possible. If anyone I knew was looking for an Immigration Barrister, I would definitely recommend Paul Richmond. Mr. Richmond is fair, efficient, and very professional. We will certainly be recommended this firm to our colleagues and friends.
