Learned about npm dist tag

1 min read

Just yesterday we solved an issue with a library dependency by installing the "next" version of the module.

I didn't know allows you to install "tagged" versions of modules.

Found all documentation about npm-dist-tag here.

An example:

$ npm install thirdPartyLibrary@next

Improving my Known site and template using Google's Lighthouse Audit

1 min read

As of today this is the Audit test result for "Desktop" (no throttling), with an authenticated session:

  • Performance: 100
  • Accessibility: 70
  • Best Practices: 79
  • SEO: 100

Next priority is to improve the score for "Accessibility".

  1. Image elements do not have alt attribute
  2. Form elements do not have associated labels
  3. Links do not have a discernible name

The "Best Practices" fixes will then be next:

  1. Does not use passive listeners to improve scrolling performance
  2. Links to cross-origin destinations are unsafe
  3. Includes front-end JavaScript libraries with known security vulnerabilities


The "known security vulnerabilities" is a tricky one as it requires updating the outdated Bootstrap version.
