What did I learn from Theos T3 Stack Tutorial Video.5th February 2023
For developing an MVP (Minimal Viable Product), I'm all with the T3 Stack. The T3 Stack consist of the following components: NextJS, TailwindCSS, trpc and prisma. That gives you an amazing developer experience when developing. I really think it can beat no-code and low-code experiences when developing your MVP. Theo was so kind to record a video for how to develop a Twitter clone with the T3 Stack. I surely learned a ton out of that video and not only about the T3 Stack, moreover of how to become a better frontend developer at all. I will share my learnings with you in this post.
I consider myself as a full-stack developer. I started out like 2016 with Java in backend worlds. With 2017 I got fascinated to the AWS Cloud and shifted my focus to AWS DevOps. In 2021 I started to learn React which was super tough for me and I didn't felt like making fast progress as I was used to from backend. But I fell in love with TypeScript and starting from them it was my preferred choice of programming language. So until now I never felt super confident as a React frontend developer. I was super pumped when I saw the T3 Stack and it has an been an amazing journey so far.
What I learned
In the following sections, I want to share the highlights, I learned through watching and understanding Theo's Video.
- Don't split into separated files to early. Throughout the whole course.
When do components
- Organizing in components early on when it contains state or even just props
- Detangle workflows. Where he loads users from clerk and gets the posts from database around Minute 50.
Do auth with Clerk
- Using Clerk for authentication and creating a signin/signout flows and components.
Becoming a div master
- Using a border to see the layout like from a div. Around Minute 10
- Creating a loading spinner component with using flowbite
- Wrapping component in Page
Writing an authenticated procedure with TRPC around 1:10.
How to invalidate the useQuery cache and fetch new data
Implementing a rate limiter
At the end Theo mentioned he would to the input of the Post Wizard with react-hook-form instead state managing. That is What I did.
Ich habe hier unterschiedliche Methoden vorgestellt wie Permissions mit der Amplify AppSync directive @auth realisiert werden können. Wenn ihr noch andere coole Ideen habt, dann lasst es mich gerne wissen.
