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.

Bun – A fast, all-in-one JavaScript runtime

Speed is paramount, and Bun delivers massively. Its combination of the JavaScriptCore engine and Zig's low-level control of memory makes it much simpler to write fast software. Designed as a drop-in replacement for your current JavaScript or TypeScripts apps – you can easily switch from Node or Deno today. The goal of Bun is to run most of the world's JavaScript outside of browsers, bringing performance and complexity enhancements to your future infrastructure, as well as improving developer productivity through better, simpler tooling.

Deno – Fresh 1.0

Fresh is a next-generation web framework for Deno, built for speed, reliability and simplicity. By default, web pages built with Fresh send zero JavaScript to the client, dramatically improving deployment times. At its core, Fresh is a routing framework and templating engine that renders pages as they are requested by a server. Fresh does not have a build step. The code you write is the same code that is run on the server and client-side. Any necessary transpilation of TypeScript or JSX to plain JavaScript is done just-in-time, when it is needed. This allows for very fast iteration loops with instant deployments. Dive in ›

tRPC – End-to-end typeface APIs made easy

Move fast and break nothing. tRPC allows you to easily build and consume fully typesafe APIs, without schemas or code generation. As TypeScript and static typing are increasingly becoming best practices in web programming, the API becomes a major pain point. tRPC represents a better way to statically type API endpoints and share those types between the client and server (or server-to-server). By leveraging the full power of modern TypeScript, this simple library will help streamline your API development. Check it out ›

Test the Transloadit API with Postman

Postman is a service all about APIs, whether you're looking to create one or use one. In this post, we're looking at the latter use case, to see how Postman can be leveraged with the Transloadit API to return a list of all your recent Assemblies, or to create new Assemblies. If you're directly interfacing with the Transloadit API, rather than using an SDK, Postman allows you to debug your requests much more quickly and easily. Learn more ›

Our Smart CDN now supports Face Detection!

Our Smart CDN is one of the most exciting features we have released in the past few years. It helps our users receive the fastest request times we can offer, and despite it being in beta, it's making great strides every day. Today, we are excited to announce that we have updated the list of compatible Robots to now include our /image/facedetect Robot! Take a look ›
