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. 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. So, let’s take a quick look at them and see if we can understand when to use each one.

Why we moved from Angular 2 to Vue.js (and why we didn’t choose React)

  • My conclusion about Angular 2 was simple, the only thing Angular 1 and 2 share in common is the name, they are completely different frameworks.So consider that we had 17 versions to upgrade on a non-tested system, a lot of pressure from the business to write new features, lots of bugs and poorly written code, the original developers weren’t on the team anymore, only one developer (me) at the time with many other responsibilities, Typescript, problems with finding the right documentation since I was using a beta, and Angular 2 moving to version 4.
  • I got a good understanding of the basic concepts of Vue.js, defined a good and extendable architecture but most importantly I really enjoyed the experience of writing code with it and I felt I was doing it faster that with React.React was a lot harder than I thought, choosing between Redux and MobX is more problematic than having one option that is well integrated with the framework like Vue.js and Vuex do.
  • React took the most mentions and Angular 2 came in a distant second place.I started to look for local talent with Vue.js experience and I did find some who were really good so I started to think that I was not alone, my social techy circle was probably too small and I shouldn’t play enough attention to the fact that I didn’t know anyone in person working with Vue.js on production.MobileAt the time we were thinking about Vue.js vs React, we were also considering rewriting our mobile app and React Native looked like a really good choice.
  • Twitter is another good example, they released Bootstrap under the very permissive MIT License and no one is talking about License problems with Bootstrap.Final wordsOut of the many web pages I researched before making a decision, one graph caught my attention, the developer satisfaction on The state of Javascript survey that Sacha Greif @sachagreif does every year.
  • You can read The State of Javascript on the following link.Overall, Vue.js was the the winner in our evaluation, it had many questions answered on Stack Overflow, the clearest official documentation of the three options, the smallest code base, integrates well with Bootstrap and learning that it was backed by strong projects like Laravel and a big company like Alibaba was a big plus.

At Rever (www.reverscore.com) we just released a new version of our web client using Vue.js. 641 commits and 16 weeks of intense development after with two resources, here we are, very proud of a…
