Hi, I'm Jack Lyons. I'm a Front End Developer from Gold Coast, Australia.

I enjoy building modern web sites and applications with Vue, React, ES2020+, TypeScript, GraphQL, TailwindCSS and Sass. Contact me today for help on your next project!

Here's the tech I love to work with:

I'm a Front End Developer who loves working with JavaScript & TypeScript

Vue.js

My front end framework of choice is Vue.js. I love working with Vue as it allows me to write clean, powerful code and prototype fast! I'm also a big fan of Nuxt.js for building Server Side Redered applications.

React.js

I also enjoy working with React.js coupled with TypeScript. React is just as powerful as Vue, but it does involve more technical decision making and code co-ordination with other third party libraries. React is a great tool for building powerful, modern web apps and I especially love using React Hooks and Functional Components.

GraphQL with Apollo

Apollo is the industry-standard GraphQL implementation, providing the data graph layer that connects modern apps to the cloud. REST APIs are not a good fit for modern apps because they require large amounts of hard-to-manage data fetching code. With Apollo, components simply declare their data requirements using GraphQL and Apollo gets the right data to the right place!

WordPress & Headless CMS solutions

WordPress is by far the most popular platform for custom client websites. I also use it to build eCommerce websites too. However, it's bulky and slow, and easily hackable. A headless CMS is a back-end only content management system built as a content repository that makes content accessible via an API for display on any device.

Moving from WordPress to Next.js with StackBit

I was horrified when I recently tried to lookup my WordPress site on my mobile. It took close to ten seconds to load! That was enough for me to say goodbye to WordPress once and for all. Hello Next.js!

Internet Explorer 11 logo

Is your Vue app not working in IE 11? Here's how to fix it.

While IE 11 is officially going die in 2021, that doesn't meant it won't still need supporting. Lots of government and legacy systems still require it's support. I'll show you how to fix your white-screen-of-death in IE 11.
