Halfway through each month, our newsletter for developers: The Dev Times, brings three reads that our own developers found interesting on the web, and two Transloadit updates that may interest you.

Grid.js - Advanced Table Plugin

Grid.js is a lightweight, free, and open-source interactive table plugin written in TypeScript that could be a nice addition to your tool box. It has been designed to be used with all popular JavaScript frameworks, including React, Angular, Vue and VanillaJS (no frameworks at all). Learn more. ›

Denoify - For NPM module authors that would like to support Deno

This tool inputs a TypeScript codebase intended to target Node and/or web browsers and outputs a modified version of the source files that are ready to be deployed as a Deno module. This means that both JavaScript runtimes can be supported at the same time, using the same code! Check it out. ›


Audiomass is an open source, web-based audio and waveform editing tool. It is designed to allow you to record or use your existing audio tracks, and modify them by trimming, cutting, pasting, or by applying multiple effects, from compression and paragraph equalisers to reverb, delay, and distortion fx. It is written solely in plain, old-school JavaScript, weighs approximately 65kb, and has no backend or framework dependencies. Read more. ›

The Community Plan

Having gained some experience in delivering a free service through the GitHub Student Developer Pack and the Github Teacher Toolbox, we are now opening our doors further and inviting even more people to use Transloadit in their projects, free of charge. This makes Transloadit a viable choice to power any required media processing for your web/app, CLI tool, backend service, Zapier Zaps, or small #nocode products like this two-hour YouTube clone. For other examples of all the nifty things you could be doing with our service, check out the full list of demos, services, integrations, and walkthroughs. Apply now! ›

Encode a fade effect between concatenated video files.

Aside from the higher-level abstractions Transloadit provides, customers have been asking how they can handle more advanced encoding cases. Transloadit enables users to interface directly with FFmpeg to ensure that their video encoding jobs can be tailored to perfection. In this demo, we show how you can mix the capabilities of our native Robots' functionality with custom FFmpeg intructions to automatically add fading effects to concatenated videos. Check it out! ›
