Last month React users petitioned Facebook to relicense the project (and its other open source projects) after the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) added Facebook’s BSD+Patents license to its Category X list of disallowed licenses for Apache PMC members. Participants and subscribers to the GitHub thread waited weeks for a decision on re-licensing while Facebook’s engineering directors discussed the matter internally. The request has now formally been denied.

- We also want to let users slice and dice their data — functionality that is readily achieved using a brush.A sketch of a dashboard, showing a map, bar chart, and stacked area chart that display our data.From the sketch, you can easily imagine interaction possibilities and changes that you may want to see based on user activity; for instance, highlighting which elements in each chart correspond to elements in other charts, or giving more detail on a particular element based on a click.
- There are great books on React, such as React Quickly, so this will only scratch the surface, but just this chapter will get you to the point of a fully self-contained React data visualization application.Why React, why not X?React is obviously the best library ever made and if you like Angular, you’re dumb, bro (and don’t even get me started on Ember).
- And even if you hate application frameworks, you can use most of the code in this chapter in your own custom, hand-rolled, beautifully opaque bespoke dashboard.Fundamentally, React consists of a component creation framework that lets you build self-contained elements (like div or svg:rect) that have custom rendering methods, properties, state, and lifecycle methods.RenderOne of the major features of React is that it keeps track of a copy of the DOM, known as the Virtual DOM, which it can use to only render elements that need to change based on receiving new data saving cycles and speeding up your web applications.
- The render() function in each React component returns the elements that will be created by React (typically described using JSX, which is introduced in this chapter).
Bringing together D3.js and React is one of those things that isn’t new but is still not well-established enough to point to one sure way to do it. In this excerpt from my book D3.js in Action…

- Here’s a short list of what we’ve added recently, upcoming course highlights, and our weekly video update of What’s New at Treehouse.
- React Native is a great option for creating performant iOS and Android applications that feel at home on their respective platforms, all while building on any previous web development experience.
- In this course we will be building the ultimate superhero app.
- By the end of this course you should have the confidence to build upon the app that we started and take it to the next level.
- Saving data on your device is a fundamental part of building apps and in this course we’re going to learn how to use the Core Data framework to persist data between launches by building a simple to-do list app.
Every week, new courses and workshops are published to the growing Treehouse Library! Here’s a short list of what we’ve added recently, upcoming course highlights, and our weekly video update of What’s New at Treehouse.

- Text Input Mask for React NativeWhen I first time got a task in the project I was working on to make a masked text input in React Native, I absolutely didn’t expect that it would be so difficult to implement.
- I just thought “ok, will install some RN module or make it by myself using onChangeText”, yep…After many attempts with methods of TextInput like onChangeText, onKeyPress, selection I finally did it with not good performance for iOS, but not for Android, because onKeyPress method of TextInput is not implemented for Android yet.
- More over there was no selection property yet in the version of React Native I was working on to change a position of carriage, so I had to write it by myself in Objective-C and Java, imagine how I was wondering when saw it in the next version of RN :)I didn’t find any solution and module that fits my needs to close the task so decided to write my own one, here it is:I’ve just integrated these great native RedMadRobot’s libraries to React Native:Installationnpm install –save link Android it just works.For iOS you have to drag and drop InputMask framework to Embedded Binaries in General tab of Target and check ‘Yes’ in ‘Always Embed Swift Standart Libraries’ of Build Settings.

- How everything worksFacebook’s create-react-app is a multi-package repository, powered by Lerna.Lerna is a tool that optimizes the workflow around managing multi-package repositories with git and npm.
- © Docs.So create-react-app is just a shell storing all its packages in a /packages folder.
- After you install it, it runs a postinstall command from the main package.json, which in turn runs Lerna’s bootstrap script, which does some magic: basically moves or symlinks nested packages into your main node_modules folder allowing to require or import them as usual.The only package you need to bother about is located in /packages/react-scripts.
- It exposes all the configuration and scripts your own project (if it was generated by create-react-app), uses to start, build, etc.
- Have a look at scripts section of your project’s package.json.Moreover, react-scripts is the only dependency left in your package.json after create-react-app have initialised.
I started using create-react-app instead of configuring build tools (webpack, babel, etc.) by myself a while ago and it saved me a lot of time and frustration. Thanks, Facebook! But.. Sometimes you…

- Migrate your project from React to Preact with a single command.
- More specifically, this tool switches the project over to preact-compat, the “compatibility layer that makes React-based modules work with Preact, without any code changes”.
- When you first run backups are made of all config files modified by this tool.
- Running these undo commands restores these files to their original state.
- It also uninstalls preact and reinstalls react and react-dom.
