How not to miss updates in React Documentation

React is the “instrument” that I am using on a daily base, and for this reasons, I am trying not to miss any updates that are happening in this framework. And is really hard to miss something, as I am active twitter user, and am following a lot of other React funs. But somehow it happened that I have missed when the PureComponent appear. So I decided to find some more reliable method to track what changes are happening in the React.

Fortunately, @Rreverser have suggested me that mostly every page in the GitHub has the RSS friendly format.

So I just:

  1. Take the RSS for the documentation:  https://github.com/facebook/react/commits/master/docs.atom
  2. Create the applet on the https://ifttt.com/ in format, when the new post in this RSS, send me an email.
  3. 🍰

And now I have been sent a new email every time when the new changes are accepted to the documentation. Some of these emails are really useless, as they are generated even in the case when some typo fix is accepted, but in half of time even when the changes are small ones bring benefits in knowing some nuances of the framework changes/edge cases uses.
