@brad_frost Brain wave: a cheat sheet for web developers that explains, in simple terms, what npm/composer/babel/etc are/do/require/etc— Nate Bailey (@ntdb) December 1, 2015
Involving the community
The reason why I introduce it in a proper blog post is because I would need your help. Indeed, I would like this to become a community-driven project, as:
- it is likely to get outdated and die pretty soon if I maintain it by myself;
- I believe that this is precisely on such a project that the community can kick in.
As of today, not even a week since the creation of the repository, there are already 66 terms listed, 40 of them being properly documented. And each day brings new kids on the block! Generous contributors are generous, I’m telling you.
How to contribute
Then, maybe it might be interesting to add categories to these entries, such as libraries, frameworks, concepts, APIs, etc. We could have an alphabetical glossary, and a category-based one. I am not sure it is necessary, but if we hit 100+ entries, it might eventually become needed.
I would also love to see links to related reads inside each entry so that people can actually go further with a concept by browsing these links. On topic, someone suggested to add a link to a StackOverflow tag when possible. I like that idea, so there is that.
In any case, I am open to any suggestion to make this project, so feel free to ping me here or on Twitter to discuss this!
Thank you my friends, and happy coding!
