Step by step guide for writing awesome React components

  • Now imagine the most verbose way to write it.class SlothImage extends React.Component { render() { return img src=’sloth.gif’ alt=’Pretty face’ }}export default SlothImageThis code is completely correct and performant but can it be shorter?
  • This component has no use of lifecycle methods.const SlothImage = props = { return img src=’sloth.gif’ alt=’Pretty face’}export default SlothImageTwo lines have been spared by converting the class component to the functional component.
  • /*The props should now be built like this:{ src: ‘sloth.gif’, alt: ‘Pretty face’,}*/export default props = img {…props}The dots are called a spread operator (❧).
  • My personal taste for writing more complex components is as follows:export default ({ separateNext: underline, rightComponent, onRightComponentClick, …rest: imgProps}) = { return ( Row underline SlothImage {…imgProps} / /Row )}If I could pick one rule in writing React components it would be exceeding the 80 characters mark (❧) in a…
  • The sign of overcomplication is the usage of “enum” like props or having too many props.TextInput required width=’col-6′ height=’xlarge’ bgColor=’#a4a4a4′ type=’primary’ suffix=’dollar’ 1337/TextInputEvery component should have a single responsibility (❧) and a reasonable amount of flexibility.

Step by step guide for writing awesome React componentsDescriptive and versatile checklist with must do’s and should do’s when conceptualizing sleek and professional React codeGoing through the process of learning and using React and Redux I came to a following conclusion – they are not hard to grasp but are fairly difficult to master. Both are pretty minimal when it comes to their API and that helps new users to churn out new components and even apps at an incredible pace. Nevertheless, that convenience degrades the average quality of React code.Being the minimally opinionated library as it is, React allows a fair amount of maneuverability regarding the different approaches one can take. The consequence of that is the broad spectrum of available best practices for someone to apply. Some of those alleged best practices are not even good practices at all, and some of them are not compatible with one another. Best practices can depend on the tools and libraries you use, and they can be different relative to the type and purpose of the app.The greatest difficulty I had and still have when searching for some additional valid knowledge is the lack of high quality and up-to-date materials. My goal here is to compile and organise in one place as many methods, concepts, and practices as my laziness allows.Show me what is ReactPillars of creationHigh-quality React code rests on 5 pillars. It is not by chance a pillar and not a column, pole or a shaft. Pillar is defined as a slender,…
