The Pros and Cons of ReactJS for your Online Business

The Pros and Cons of ReactJS for your Online Business  via @janlgordon

  • With React, it is possible for webmasters and online business owners to develop large web-based applications that change data while reloading pages.
  • Webmasters can also use React together with other forms of frameworks or JavaScript libraries like Angular in MVC.
  • It makes it possible to reuse components that didn’t produce changes, and this makes programming more comfortable and precise for online business owners.
  • The great news for webmasters is that Google might still find the React component when just the client-side is rendered.

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…

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’s 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

react-konva now supports @reactjs v16. Now it uses new react-reconciler.

  • React Konva is a JavaScript library for drawing complex canvas graphics using React.
  • Currently you can use all components as React components and all events are supported on them in same way as normal browser events are supported.
  • It is NOT about drawing graphics, but react-konva is exactly for drawing complex graphics on element from React.
  • Konva helps here a lot (especially when you need events for objects on canvas, like “click” on shape, it is really hard to do with vanilla canvas).
  • Somethings like: – – But for simple cases you can use methods: – – For images you need manually create native window.Image instance or element and use it as attribute of component.

I18n with React and i18next ← Alligator.io

I18n with React and i18next  #ReactJS

  • A 30,000 foot view of i18next would be that it provides a function that takes a key, some options, and returns the value for the current language.
  • Because the function will likely be called several times in an app, the creators of i18next have chosen a shortname: – which is short for translate.
  • Although i18next is designed to work with many frameworks, this post will focus on how to internationalize a React app using i18next.
  • In order to use i18next with React, the function needs to be made available to the components that need to be internationalized.
  • The React binding for i18next provides the component.

A brief introduction to internationalizing a React app using i18next.
