Custom Specialized Frameworks: An Interactive SVG/TypeScript Exp by Momin Khan
When would you ever write a framework from scratch? The big web framework are all about general solutions, but many designs are unusual and don’t fit into a typical workflow. If you’ve ever run into one of those, you’ll know that React/Angular/etc are not time savers, and neither is stumbling along with unstructured JS. There is a better way: Custom Specialized Frameworks! This technique is pretty similar to what we do every day as programmers, but on a broader scale, and it will empower you to implement any design that comes your way.
We’ll see this in action using a recent project I had for an interactive, responsive, full-screen SVG homepage with over 5000 objects, strict requirements, and many unknowns. I’ll describe a straightforward process for designing and implementing a specialized framework for your specific project, that does nothing less and nothing more than what you need. We’ll look at the Typescript SVG animation framework I wrote in a very short time, and how it continually paid off to help me produce a highly tuned and optimized website for the client.
