It contains a healthy mix of tutorials, news, tools, and job listings.

Bytes may be the oddball on this list, but there's a good reason to include it: it's probably the most fun and lighthearted newsletter for JS developers.

It covers the main releases in the JS ecosystem, often including high-quality memes you may just want to share in your next company showcase.

7. React Status

What would this list be if we didn't include some stuff dedicated to JS frameworks?

There are more than a few React newsletters out there, but React Status is definitely a crowd favorite. From the same team behind JS Weekly and Node Weekly, this newsletter brings the same familiar structure and a strong focus on React tips and tools.

8. React Native Newsletter

React Native doesn't stop growing in popularity, so there's no shortage of useful tutorials out there about the framework.

From the same folks behind Chain React (a U.S. React Native conference), this bimonthly newsletter brings a healthy mix of tutorials, stories, libs, and videos.

9. Vue.js News

There's no stopping the Vue bandwagon, and the team behind the framework has truly built an awesome community.
