Vue.js vs. React.js: Comparing Two JavaScript UI Component Libraries

  • At a time where large MVC (model-view-controller) frameworks were cutting edge, two-way data binding was considered a feature, and SSR was mostly used for static webpages, React reversed the trend, focusing on building applications from encapsulated view components, one-way data binding, and using SSR on dynamic web pages via the…
  • Dependency tracking gives Vue’s virtual DOM a slight edge over React out of the box, because it can selectively re-render the child components that are actually affected by a change in state by default — no additional coding required.
  • In React, JSX breaks with the convention of keeping JavaScript and HTML separate, by providing a declarative XML-like syntax that allows you to create self-contained UI components that encapsulate all the instructions required to render them within the view: – – The React code above will render into a simple…
  • Under the React umbrella, we have Flux, the application architecture pattern Facebook developed as a state management solution to avoid issues like the infamous phantom unseen message bug, and Redux, a framework agnostic library for providing a simplified implementation of the Flux pattern, which replaces MVC (model-view-controller).
  • Both Vue and React are cutting edge UI component libraries that make use of a virtual DOM, embrace the components based future of web development, support SSR, and Universal JavaScript.

In this article, we’ll explore some of the key differences between the React.js and Vue.js JavaScript libraries, and learn which might be the best fit for your next web project.

A tiny ~700b centralized state container with component bindings for Preact. #reactjs #preact

  • { , , } store ({ count }) If actions is a function, it gets passed the store: ({ ( ) { { count . } }
  • , The above example as an Arrow Function: ({ count }) ({ count count }), ( ) { res ( ) { stuff .
  • , ) } }) ( , actions)( ({ count, increment }) ( div p Count {count} p button onClick {increment} Increment button div ) ) () ( Provider store {store} App Provider ) – – Creates a new store, which is a tiny evented state container.
  • Register a listener function to be called whenever state is changed.
  • If don’t, just open a new clear and descriptive issue.

Container Components and Stateless Functional Components in React – Zsolt Nagy

  • Let’s introduce functional components: – – has become a function with a argument, returning the return value of the method of the original implementation.
  • Implications of the structure of stateless functional components: – – In the introduction, I mentioned that stateless functional components come with performance benefits.
  • Typically, container components have the following properties: – – The rule of thumb for choosing the appropriate syntax for React components is the following: – – then it is advised to use stateless functional components.
  • Let’s put theory into practice, and transform all the stateless component in our chat application into functional components.
  • Reviewing the conditions for modeling a component with a function, we can see that there is absolutely nothing preventing us from creating a functional equivalent of the class.

We will now introduce another way to define simple components. You will not only write less code, but you will also benefit from performance optimizations done by React. Let’s introduce functional components:

Interview of @matheusml about #redux zero, a light state management solution for #reactjs

  • Redux Zero is a library which offers a simple way to handle state in modern applications.
  • With Redux Zero your component can focus 100% on the UI and just call the actions to update the state: – – Last but not least, plug the whole thing in your index file: – – Redux is great, but in some cases, it’s way too much.
  • With Redux Zero you just have a store and some actions.
  • One of our developers here at Concrete, Miguel Albernaz, was using this gist as a state management solution instead of Redux.
  • Redux Zero is one of the lightest state management solutions I’ve seen so far.

Although using Redux is straight-forward once you understand the approach and its nuances, after a while it gets repetitive. It’s easy to end up with a lot of “boilerplate” code that wires all the logic together. For this reason, multiple solutions addressing the issue have appeared.

The Pros and Cons of ReactJS for your Online Business

The Pros and Cons of ReactJS for your #OnlineBusiness 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.
  • ReactJS is a great framework for online business.

This isn’t quite a ReactJS guide for the layman. But it is a useful for business owners, if only to glean enough to know how to talk with your techie

Learning React.js: Getting Started and Concepts ― Scotch

  • — React Code Goes Here — – – /script – /body – /html – In React, components mount to an element, so in this example we can use the div myDiv as it’s parent container.
  • These attributes are available in our component as this.props and can be used in our render method to render dynamic data: – var MyComponent = React.createClass({ – render: function(){ – return ( – h1Hello, {}!
  • Below, see how we can set our component’s state: – var MyComponent = React.createClass({ – getInitialState: function(){ – return { – count: 5 – } – }, – render: function(){ – return ( – h1{this.state.count}/h1 – ) – } – }); – – Events – React also has a built…
  • Lets make our count increment below using events: – /** @jsx React.DOM */ – – var Counter = React.createClass({ – incrementCount: function(){ – this.setState({ – count: this.state.count + 1 – }); – }, – getInitialState: function(){ – return { – count: 0 – } – }, – render: function(){ -…
  • == -1; – }); – this.setState({items: updatedList}); – }, – getInitialState: function(){ – return { – initialItems: [ – “Apples”, – “Broccoli”, – “Chicken”, – “Duck”, – “Eggs”, – “Fish”, – “Granola”, – “Hash Browns” – ], – items: [] – } – }, – componentWillMount: function(){ – this.setState({items: this.state.initialItems})…

Today we are going to kick off the first installment in a new series of tutorials, Learning React, that will focus on becoming proficient and effective with Facebook’s React library.

Passing Functions to Components

  • Pass event handlers and other functions as props to child components: – – If you need to have access to the parent component in the handler, you also need to bind the function to the component instance (see below).
  • There are several ways to make sure functions have access to component attributes like and , depending on which syntax and build steps you are using.
  • In JavaScript, these two code snippets are not equivalent: – – Binding methods helps ensure that the second snippet works the same way as the first one.
  • Make sure you aren’t calling the function when you pass it to the component: – – Instead, pass the function itself (without parens): – – You can use an arrow function to wrap around an event handler and pass parameters: – – This is equivalent to calling : – -…
  • is a way of queuing a function to be executed in the browser at the optimal time for rendering performance.

If you need to have access to the parent component in the handler, you also need to bind the function to the component instance (see below).
