2. Use runjs.dev
An alternative to Quokka is a standalone app called Runjs.
3. Always ask yourself: How do I get better?
There’s no point in doing the same thing over and over again.
These books are full of code snippets that you can run and test. When combined with Quokka or RunJS, it makes for a very nice learning setup.
4. Use Github’s Copilot
Touted as “Your AI pair programmer”, Github’s Copilot is a pretty cool piece of software. Once you install it in your text editor - I use it in VS Code - it will offer suggestions as you’re coding, and you can use those suggestions by pressing the TAB key to use the offered suggestion.
The Copilot is not always offering the best or the most up-to-date code there is, but it offers a great way to get a glimpse of the code that some other people wrote at a point in time, when they were faced with a similar issue. It’s a pretty cool tech, although it’s not perfect.
