Rendering FrintJS Apps with React.js in the Browser and Server

  • Rendering FrintJS Apps with React.js in the Browser and ServerI spent more time on this image than writing this post =DPreviously, I wrote about dependency injection and how providers are set up in FrintJS Apps.
  • Today, we will be using the same APIs and render a FrintJS App with React in the browser and server.Rendering with react-domIn the most basic and simple example, we can render a React component like this using ReactDOM:import React from ‘react’;import { render } from ‘react-dom’;function MyComponent() { return pHello…
  • /p;}const App = createApp({ name: ‘MyApp’, providers: [ { name: ‘component’, useValue: MyComponent, }, ],});It is by convention that we set the React component as a provider by giving it the name component.The same convention applies for our Vue.js, React Native, and Preact integrations too, as they can be found…
  • Only difference is that instead of receiving a Component as its first argument, it receives our App’s instance.What about server-side rendering?We have it covered already with our frint-react-server package:import { renderToString } from ‘frint-react-server’const App = createApp({ … });const app = new App();const html = renderToString(app);This also follows similar API…
  • Think of it similar to how Redux does it with their Provider / component and connect higher-order component.This gives developers a lot of flexibility when they need to access certain providers for example, without having to keep passing them as props everywhere.I will follow up by writing another post soon…

Our Journey Building a React Native App

  • Magento specialists, The App Store and The Play Store – three things rarely spoken about in the same sentence – – Then an existing client of ours, one that’s been having month on month growth from an existing Mobile-friendly website we built for them, approached us with a new request:…
  • React Native is a platform that allows Javascript developers to create Apps for both iOS and Android, all from the same Codebase.
  • There are other solutions out there than achieve similar results, but some of the reasons for choosing React Native were as follows: – – So we had the answer now, yes – JavaScript developers can produce an application that will run run on both iOS and android (thanks to react…
  • I don’t think it’s a good idea to become an Angular developer – or a React developer, you should instead strive to become an expert in JavaScript – doing so will allow you adopt new tools, libraries and frameworks as they come in and out of fashion without much work….
  • Jest – – There’s a huge amount of regular JavaScript that goes into a React Native application – especially when you’re handling side-effects away from components like we are with redux-observable.

Then an existing client of ours, one that’s been having month on month growth from an existing Mobile-friendly website we built for them, approached us with a new request: An App on both iOS and Android, capable of covering some of the offline features not currently possible on the Web.

Ivan Linko’s answer to How good is ReactJS for building e-commerce websites?

  • A common E-commerce website usually comprises a plethora of forms to fill, complex filters, elements, which interact with different APIs, maps, etc.
  • With the help of React you can easily implement all of those features, making it a good option to build highly interactive E-commerce websites.
  • One of the great things about React is that it allows for a rather convenient way of storing and manipulating the state of your app (e.g. filtering through items is a change in the state of the app).
  • What’s more, React comes with a whole bunch of ready-made modules for all occasion, not mentioning that it’s easy to test and scale.
  • We’ve used React in some of our E-commerce projects and it recommended itself as a very mature and versatile technology.

How to mobilise your idea – Cogent Blog

How to mobilise your idea  #javascript #reactnative #javascriptdevelopment #reactjs #reactjs

  • But for a feature rich app experience, it’s just not going to give good enough results.Even Facebook initially built their app as a mobile web app to be able to roll out features faster, but eventually switched back to native.Write once, build nativeIf each native platform needs code written in it’s…
  • Microsoft has invested heavily in cross platform mobile tooling, because as less than 1% of the global market for mobile devices, no one is going to build apps for just their platform alone.A slightly different approach is used by React Native (and Native Script).
  • While the word hybrid is certainly apt, React Native works so differently from the HTML based hybrid app options, I’d like to think of it as different class instead, with it’s main characteristic being the way it plays puppeteer to the native interface.The way that this works in practice is…
  • If your JavaScript decides to make the header bar change colour, it sends a message to the main native app thread, saying “the header bar should be red now”, and the native header bar widget changes it’s colour to red.This is only different from truly native mobile in a few…
  • So far, I haven’t needed this escape hatch, but it’s good to know that it’s there.SummaryHere’s my opinionated breakdown.Separate native mobile apps give a good result but having multiple code-bases is both too expensive and too slow for fast-moving companies.Mobile friendly web design is very important for all websites, but…

You’re an entrepreneur or project manager trying to see if a technical decision is right for your business, but what’s the most cost effective way for your engineers to build a mobile product? As a…

GraphQL Authentication with React Native & Apollo [Part 2/2]

GraphQL authentication with React Native & Apollo  #GraphQL #ReactNative #Apollo

  • We’ll use gql to write our graphql query and the graphql higher order component to tap into the Apollo client.We know that our mutation looks something like this (from working with it directly in Launchpad in part 1).
  • Now we need to to be able to pass variables from our user to the mutation.Finally, we want to make this mutation available to the Register component via this.props so that the component agnostic from the Apollo bindings.Now to use it we’ll go to the end of our handleSubmit function…
  • Click “Log Out”, refresh the app, and you’ll see it no longer brings you to profile.Login with Email and PasswordLogging in with email and password is just like sign up, we’re just calling a different mutation.
  • I’ll let the code do the talking.Now to call the login function available on this.props, save the JWT and change screens (on success) or show an error.Showing User InformationThe final thing we’ll do, to demonstrate that things are actually working and it’s not just a big facade, is show the…
  • The server is expecting the JWT to be coming in the authorization header and uses that to find the current user.To pass this token along with the request we’ll use setContext from the apollo-link-context which is another apollo link we’ll use.

This is the second and final part of a series where I cover how to setup authentication with React Native, GraphQL, and MongoDB. Below is part 1 where we setup the server. In this part we’ll be…

How HBO’s Silicon Valley built “Not Hotdog” with mobile TensorFlow, Keras & React Native

How HBO’s Silicon Valley built “Not Hotdog”, a real AI App:  via @timanglade #DataScience

  • The depth openness of the deep learning community, and the presence of talented minds like R.C. is what makes deep learning viable for applications today — but they also make working in this field more thrilling than any tech trend we’ve been involved with.Our final architecture ended up making significant departures from…
  • While this is a subject of some debate these days, our experiments placing BN after activation on small networks failed to converge as well.To optimize the network we used Cyclical Learning Rates and (fellow student) Brad Kenstler’s excellent Keras implementation.
  • This was hard to defend against as a) there just aren’t that many photographs of hotdogs in soft focus (we get hungry just thinking about it) and b) it could be damaging to spend too much of our network’s capacity training for soft focus, when realistically most images taken with…
  • Of the remaining 147k images, most were of food, with just 3k photos of non-food items, to help the network generalize a bit more and not get tricked into seeing a hotdog if presented with an image of a human in a red outfit.Our data augmentation rules were as follows:We…
  • Phase 2 ran for 64 more epochs (4 CLR cycles with a step size of 8 epochs), with a learning rate between 0.0004 and 0.0045, on a triangular 2 policy.Phase 3 ran for 64 more epochs (4 CLR cycles with a step size of 8 epochs), with a learning rate…
