  • Tips: When running git checkout, using '-' as the argument (git checkout -) takes you back to the branch you were last on, hub makes it easier to work with github on the command line. Tab completion is especially helpful, and fetch all PRs if you do a lot of PR reviews, this can be really helpful. It downloads all new PRs as branches whenever you fetch

  • Tips: Sometimes it's just easier to disable registering SW in development. Just helps when you're trying to build/fix other parts of the site., It's very important to test your update process when deploying new versions of apps with SW. It's possible to “brick” a web app since if you successfully register a SW, then push an update that has a JS error that prevents your SW registration code from running. Pushing a new version won't fix it because it won't register the new SW and keeps serving the broken code from the previous SW. , and It's early to say this, but I think GraphQL will eventually replace REST as dominant http API approach for applications.

  • Tips: Make sure you use waitUntil() for any async operations outside of respondWith(). Many examples will try to do things like cache resources after resolving the respondWith() promise without calling waitUntil(). The browser can kill the worker before these async operations complete. You may not see this in development, though, because the browser sometimes keeps the worker alive with devtools open.
