Backpack transpiledAt Skyscanner, we publish Backpack web libraries untranspiled, as several different packages.
backpack-transpiled is a single package, containing all the web components available in Backpack. Thanks to modern code-splitting and tree-shaking techniques, it's possible to import a single component from this package without negatively affecting bundle size.
Because backpack-transpiled is completely transpiled, there's no need to use backpack-react-scripts, or modify webpack config. It will work out of the box with a fresh create react app.
VPN Video CheckerWhile we're in lockdown, many of us are relying on video calls and VPNs to do our work. But video calls can place a lot of strain on VPNs and streaming via a VPN often results in a flaky video call experience.
To remind members of my team to disconnect from the VPN when joining a video call, I created a small utility that checks and notifies you whenever you're simultaneously on a call whilst connected to a VPN. It's available to download for free from the macOS App Store.
