Publishing a Qwik component
After hearing creator Miško Hevery on every front-end podcast that I listen to,
I decided to give his new Qwik library a look. My canonical approach to learning
a new library is creating a
*-emoji component that wraps emojis with the
appropriate HTML attributes for accessibility.
npm create qwik@latest, I was able to scaffold a Qwik component library
quickly. Then it was a matter of writing the component using Qwik’s
function and exporting things in the right places.
To speak nothing of Qwik’s other features, it was a breeze writing my first component. It looks and feels just like React (thanks JSX!), and I only needed to reference the documentation one time to confirm how props worked. The project setup was great, and helped me identify some Qwik-specific TypeScript issues before I published the library.
Overall, publishing a Qwik component was a smooth and painless process. Kudos to the Qwik team for making it a great developer experience.
You can checkout my Qwik emoji library on npm, or install it yourself with:
npm i qwik-emoji
