React Lifecycle Events for Sencha Devs

  • A big plus is that, like ExtJS, React’s components have some simple lifecycle events.
  • Lucky for us, we can use our knowledge of ExtJS lifecycle events to help us understand React’s and that gives us a nice place to start learning.
  • If you set the component state here you will still only get the initial render and not an extra one.
  • As you’d expect, this method is called just before our component is removed from the DOM.
  • I hope you found this quick ExtJS React event comparison helpful.

Welcome Sencha developer! So, you want to learn React. Maybe you’re wondering where to start? Well, getting a basic understanding of React’s components is a great place to start.

  • In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to create a simple Sticky Notes app using React, Redux, Selectors, Redux Sagas, a little bit of Node, and Cosmic JS.
  • For the sake of understanding how to consume Restful API’s, this tutorial will show how to make AJAX (XHR) requests to the Cosmic JS API in order to retrieve, add, update, and delete data/media in our Cosmic JS Buckets.
  • The bundle.js file located in our dist directory is what our webpack.config file will spit out after bundling all of our react components.
  • Request uses whatwg-fetch to hit AJAX requests to the Cosmic JS API.
  • This util is used to call those endpoints which are not present in the Cosmic JS package e.g deleteMedia and searchObjects based on filters – – Cosmic JS uses cosmicjs package to hit AJAX request to Cosmic API.

Cosmic JS is a cloud-hosted content platform that offers a flexible and intuitive CMS API. Build websites and applications with more freedom and manage content easier. Get started for Free.
