ASP.NET Core Basics: React with an API 鈥 Eric L. Anderson

#aspNETCore basics: build a #ReactJs app with an #API

  • This post is going to cover adding a React project to the existing using the React template that is now built into Visual Studio.
  • The goal for the React project in this initial post will be to connect to the contacts API and download a list of contacts and render that to the screen.
  • The following is the resulting React project in the context of the full solution.
  • Next, make sure and run npm install聽from a command prompt in the React project鈥檚 directory to ensure all the npm聽packages get restored.
  • Since this is my first time working with React I took the聽 FetchData.tsx聽file and copied the contents and used that as the starting point for my contact list.

In the past, I have done some exploration on Aurelia and Angular via the聽ASP.NET Core Basics series. This post is going to take a similar聽approach as I start doing some exploration with React. The code for the project will be in the same repo as the previous basics examples and will be utilizing the same API to pull data. The code before adding the React project can be found here.

5 Reasons Why You Should Use React Native For Your Next App Idea

5 reasons why you should use React Native for your next app idea  #ReactNative

  • But then I saw that the React team was working on framework called React Native that would work on both iOS & Android (despite the Android version coming out much later)…GAMECHANGER.
  • Neither the React Native code for iOS or Android was available yet but just the fact that a large team like the Facebook Dev group was working on a solution like this got me excited enough to start all my new web projects in React.
  • In the past when other javascript frameworks (Meteor, Ionic etc.) tried to build tools to compete with native development they simply used聽Cordova to make javascript look like native Swift or Java code when in reality they were super wonky.
  • I just mention Live Reload first because when switching between React Native and Swift and/or Java…or Objective-C, it is the first thing you notice in speed of development.
  • While you certainly won’t just be copying the same code you wrote from the web application and pasting it into the iOS and Android version expecting it to work, there are a lot of reusable聽modules between platforms.

tldr; I’m a React “fanboy”. A few years ago, I came across two brand new javascript frameworks in Meteor and React. At first glance after comparing the two I di

Rendering a function with React 鈥 kentcdodds

  • But there are reasons for the API as it is and that芒聙聶s not what we芒聙聶re going over in this newsletter芒聙艢With ReactSo thinking about this in the context of React:const getHomeContent = getContent(‘pages.home’)const ui = ( a href=”/about” {getHomeContent(‘nav.about’)} /a)// that’ll get you:a href=”/about”About/aSo far so good.
  • Anyway, this will break the app:const getHomeContent = getContent(‘pages.typo’)const ui = ( a href=”/about” {getHomeContent(‘nav.about’)} /a)// 膽聼聮慕 error 膽聼聮慕Again, this is happening because getContent(‘pages.typo’) will return the string {pages.typo} (to indicate that there’s no content at that path and the developer needs to fix that problem to get the content)….
  • The issue is that you can’t invoke a string but that’s what’s happening because getHomeContent is a string, not a function.A solution and a new脗聽problemSo the change I made this week makes it so when there芒聙聶s no content at a given path, instead of a string, it returns a 芒聙聹sorta-curried芒聙聺…
  • No problem.So now this wont throw an error, but we lose rendering the path if there芒聙聶s no content!const getHomeContent = getContent(‘pages.typo’)const ui = ( a href=”/about” {getHomeContent(‘nav.about’)} /a)// that’ll get you:a href=”/about”/aAnd we want to make sure that we show the missing content so it芒聙聶s more obvious for developers (yes…
  • Let芒聙聶s rewrite the above to make this more clear:const getHomeContent = getContent(‘pages.typo’)const aboutContent = ui = a in this example is a function because the call to getContent had a typo, so we’ll never actually find content that matches the full path.

Why Do Developers Now Compare Vue.js to JavaScript Giants Angular and React?

Why Do Developers Now Compare #VueJS To #JavaScript Giants #AngularJS And #ReactJS?

  • It was 2016 when Vue.js rose to fame and gained so much traction that it鈥檚 now seen as an alternative for even well established JavaScript libraries, such as Angular and React.
  • Since Angular belongs to search engine giant Google and React comes from social media behemoth Facebook, developers still trust and use those libraries more than Vue.js.
  • This blog attempts to shed light on why there is a growing belief among developers that Vue.js is set to become the top JavaScript library, leaving behind Angular and React.
  • The reason many developers are turning to Vue is that it addresses the issues of React and Angular.
  • But, one must not forget that Angular and React are still very big names in the JavaScript world, whereas Vue has just begun to rise.

Vue.js, an MIT-licensed open source project, is a JavaScript library for building web interfaces. The library was first released in 2013, but not many developers took cognizance of it in web framework technology for the next two years. It was 2016 wh
