React UI Frameworks, Compared  #reactjs #semanticui #antdesign #react #javascript #reactjs

  • Created by Alibaba, Ant Design React includes a great many polished and usable components — probably more than any other React UI library.Ant Design (Date Range Picker)Component Breadth: A+Every component we needed is included.Quality of implementation: AGood-looking components, plenty of options and interoperability.Ease of re-styling: B+Themeable, but not built for overhaul.Typescript support: A+Written…
  • Typescript support: FDoes not appear to have any TypeScript typings.Quality of documentation: BInteractive examples of each component, but nothing else about the framework itself.Project health: B~1.5K Github stars, maintained by open-source contributors.Cost: FreeAn implementation of the popular Semantic UI framework, this library is polished has a lot to offer, but…
  • Type bindings are still in development, but are included for most components.Quality of documentation: A+Interactive examples of each component, clear navigation information on theming, component options, and sample layouts.Project health: B~1.5K Github stars, maintained by open-source contributors.Cost: FreeSencha’s React UI framework is costly each year, but its breadth of components,…
  • Ease of re-styling: A+Clear documentation on theming, four built-in themes (including Material Design and Bootstrap), and support for Sencha Themer.Typescript support: A+Written in TypeScript, with full bindings.Quality of documentation: AExamples of each component, with tons of options explained, but a bit confusing to navigate, and interactive examples are often limited…
  • It appears to simply be a set of wrappers for jQuery version.Kendo UI React (Dropdown)Component Breadth: A-Not as many components as the Angular/jQuery versions, but could be enough for many applications.Quality of implementation: ASeem robust, though the default style isn’t wonderful.Ease of re-styling: A+Clear documentation on theming, four built-in themes…

The open-source community around React is enormous, and we’re constantly seeing new solutions and approaches to solve the problems we have as developers. Looking into React UI libraries, we’ve come a…

Mike Grabowski: Compared to its alternatives, React is what makes React Native shine

.@grabbou: Compared to its alternatives, #ReactJS is what makes React Native shine

  • We have special weekly meetings of every open source project team which makes it easy to join any time.
  • We plan to make it public at some point, so that it’s not only transparent for folks what we are up to, but also easy to join and help us deliver for better tomorrow.Does the focus on modern technology stack help Callstack acquire more clients?It is just one of the…
  • What they are looking for is to solve specific problems that they have, and right now, the best answer to this problem is: Use React Native.What’s the best use case for choosing React Native over fully native applications?If you have an app that’s already written in React and looking into…
  • There are hundreds of other, perfectly legitimate use cases, to go with React Native.Have you experienced React license issues bothering your clients?No.What do you think is the future web and mobile development?That really depends on vendors.
  • I am paying attention to the way Kotlin evolves on other platforms as well as Flutter, that unlike React Native, uses its own rendering engine and compiles ahead of time.Are you excited about speaking at React Day Berlin?Yeah, totally!

Because Mike is going to speak about animation in React Native at React Day Berlin on December 2, we asked him a couple of questions about his experience with the technology and his current position…

Walmart Labs open sources its tool for bringing React Native to existing mobile apps – TechCrunch

  • With Electrode, the company’s Walmart Labs division open sourced the React-based framework that powers Walmart.com’s frontend and today the same group is also launching Electrode Native, its tool for bringing React Native to existing native apps on iOS and Android.
  • The basics idea here is that Electrode Native allows large companies like Walmart to take their existing apps and slowly migrate parts of their code to React Native, Facebook’s open source framework for building native apps in JavaScript.
  • React Native simply becomes a third-party library that’s used in the native app and the React Native code then lives in what Walmart Labs calls an “Electrode Native MiniApp.”
  • This approach also means developers can write their code for iOS and Android once (Walmart currently develops an iOS and Android app for all of its main brands) and maybe most importantly, that React Native code inside the app can be updated over the air without forcing users to download…
  • Walmart’s developers first used Electrode Native to update the shopping cart section of the Walmart mobile app.

Walmart is placing a big bet on React Native.

The New Kid on the Block

Meet @mxstrbng - a new member of our #NeosCMS team working on the #reactjs UI:

  • After that I attended the Neos Barcamp, the other two sprints since then and the Neos Conference.
  • All this was much fun especially to see the development of the project not only from a remote point of view but also to contribute to the React UI development.
  • My focus in the Neos project is clearly on the React UI rewrite which we plan to release at the end of the year, but I’m also fixing some little things in Neos or Flow if they catch my eye.
  • I’m not only interested in React, Javascript and PHP but in computer science in general and different kind of programming languages.
  • So, this is me 🙂

    if you are not sure if you want to join the development of Neos and Flow, also as a non programmer, you should join a sprint and see what’s going on there!

Hi I’m Max, 27 and I  became a Neos team member on the 5th July.
