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.

Helix - A post-modern text editor for advanced Linux users

Helix is a post-modern text editor written in Rust for the next generation of Vim users. With multiple cursors as a core component of the text editor, taking inspiration from Kakoune, Helix promises to deliver powerful code manipulation thanks to their robust Tree-sitter syntax tree. Save yourself the hassle of Electron, VimScript or JavaScript, as Helix runs directly in a terminal, while providing the same modern features and beautiful themes. Dive in ›

Since the beta, they’ve merged 1000+ pull requests, closed 900+ issues, made 2000+ commits and they have seen 3600+ open source repositories adopt Nuxt. Read more ›

Let’s Build - Geolocation image watermarker

While we are proud how versatile our API is, there are also things that it cannot do just yet. Fortunately, it is easy to integrate our API with third-party libraries and APIs to extend Transloadit's capabilities even further. In this post, we're demonstrating this through a Node program using the external library Node Geocoder to extract geo metadata from images, before watermarking this data onto our input image using Transloadit. We hope this post will help you learn how to integrate Transloadit into your projects with external tools to achieve impressive results. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for how to improve this project. If so, please feel free to reach out! Learn more ›

Med Help Dnipro

​The war in Ukraine sadly still rages on, claiming the lives of countless people in a brutal campaign. We at Transloadit remain committed to helping where we can, and our colleague Alex has recently shared this initiative to help hospitals in his home city of Dnipro. With sponsors from all over the world, Med Help Dnipro has been able to purchase much-needed medication, and provide new medical hardware to help wounded soldiers returning from the front. If you're looking for a good cause to donate to, this is an excellent choice. In our blog on Ukraine, Alex also continues to update a list of appropriate charities to donate to. Find out more ›
