For the April 2023 edition we look at the Vercel Image Gallery starter, a debugging story, some new tool and feature releases, and plenty of design inspiration.

Around the Web 🕷

Image Gallery Starter – Vercel

This starter is perfect if you're looking to build a lightning fast image gallery with Next.js. The gallery (Live demo here) renders large galleries quickly and provides full size previews on gallery item click.

Making Tanstack Table 1000x faster with a 1 line change

This is a highly detailed play by play that shows how JP Camara was able to solve performance issues with Tanstack Table's grouping feature. It's a wonderful insight into their debugging approach. Spoiler: the culprit was a harmless looking array spread operation.

Animated Tabs

I'm a sucker for subtle yet effective UI animations. These animated tabs, built using Tailwind and Framer Motion, make using tabs beautiful and satisfying.

Stripe has long been a leader in design. Their new Sessions page is no exception. This thread breaks down some of the key elements that make this page so nice.

The @stripe sessions website goes hard. It demonstrates the lengths Stripe is willing to go to when it comes to web design. Here are the details that catch my eye.

I'll get the small details out of the way first, before I spend far too long on colour, which is the star here.
