Modernizing JS Bundles for React Native with Babili (Late 2016) – The Exponent Log

  • You can tell Babel which features of modern JavaScript you want and also whether Babel should transpile your code or leave it as-is.
  • Sometimes the transpiled code doesn’t line up that well with the source code and the debugger behaves unintuitively.
  • You can partially address this with source maps , which are files that reversibly explain how the source code changed into the transpiled code.
  • When debugging your program and looking at your code, the debugger uses your source maps to show you your source code, or something resembling it, rather than the transpiled code.
  • Since Babili is a Babel plugin, we can parse your code just once with Babel, which will transpile and minify it in one step.

Learn how the JavaScript you write for an app that uses React Native is converted into code that runs on your phone, and how we can make…

Which is More Popular: AngularJS or ReactJS

Which is More Popular: #angularjs or #reactjs ?:  - by @AliyahChoudhry via:@allaboutwebbiz

  • AngularJS tracks and delivers updated relational content to users, without requiring developers to write additional code.
  • The two frameworks differ from each other in the categories of feature, functionality, usage and performance.
  • The developers must avoid using the two frameworks together to prevent the web application from becoming complex.
  • Bidirectional Data Binding: AngularJS further beats React in the category of data binding.
  • It becomes easier for web developers to boost the website’s user experience by allowing visitors to access new and dynamic content without leaving the web page.

Angular.JS And React.JS- Incomparable, But Still The Rage Is On!

#AngularJS And #ReactJS - Incomparable, But Still The Rage Is On!

  • The code looks obsolete.
  • To determine the loophole, we need to open the code and find out what’s there in it that’s not letting your code execute.
  • If technology supports code packaging, then the app built using the technology would load faster.
  • Leveraging React.JS library Require.JS, the code can be efficiently loaded.
  • React.JS, not as old as Angular.JS, but it’s flexible and enable developers to use the existing code, the way they like.

Web Development and the Spaghetti Syndrome

  • There really is no easy way to eat spaghetti and there is no easy way to build great web applications.
  • Meteor automates the process of setting up our web applications making it as easy, clean, and seamless as possible.
  • Two months ago, coming into my apprenticeship at Differential, I knew nothing about web development.
  • Reason 1: Meteor Magic Meteor is a fantastic web development framework that does many things to ease the pain of building great web applications.
  • Whereas Meteor is the magic that just makes things work, React is the structure and mental framework for building a great web application.

Higher Order Components: A React Application Design Pattern

Higher order components: A #ReactJS app design pattern

  • Because higher order components often wrap an existing component you’ll often find you can define them as a functional component.
  • You need some of your React components to be able to access this information, but rather than blindly making it accessible for every component you want to be more strict about which components receive the information.
  • We’ll discuss how pure functions keep code clean and how these same principles can be applied to React components.
  • In the React ecosystem these components are known as higher order components because they take an existing component and manipulate it slightly without changing the existing component .
  • A higher order function is a function that when called, returns another function.
