A React Navbar Component by Dan on CodePen

A simple, responsive #Navbar using #ReactJS:  @CodePen #coding

  • I’m going to give it a name of NavComponent because that just makes way too much sense, and inside the render function, toss in an empty (for now) set of tags to wrap around everything else that will go in there: – – And underneath all that I’m going to…
  • This will give my a “hamburger” icon (courtesy of Font Awesome) for smaller screens that need a drop down menu.
  • Since our drop-down menu is contained in the “narrowLinks” className, we’re going to target that in our function: – – And then tell our function to toggle the drop-down based on its current CSS display value: – – And to make the new function work, we need to give our…
  • I obviously don’t want to see both sets of links all the time, and since we’re using mobile-first design, we’re going to set our “navWide” links to hidden: – – And we’re also going to stick our hamburger icon and drop-down links on the left side of the screen, just…
  • And finally a media query to switch between our mobile drop-down menu and our larger screen mode with just a row of our links: – – For a working example, click here.

Design Spin Builds a React Website with Cosmic JS – Hacker Noon

  • If this was a WordPress website the language we would be using on the server side would be PHP, but we would still be using JavaScript on the client side for any browser trickery such as the image sliders mentioned.
  • When you visit this website, the first page is delivered from the server then further page changes are handled client side.
  • Lighthouse is available within the Google Chrome browsers development tools, allowing you to quickly audit any of your web pages for Progressive Web Apps, Performance, Best Practices and Accessibility.
  • “I hope in the future that this new website will convince clients to avoid WordPress and use the fantastic Cosmic JS API to build apps and manage content.”
  • Carson Gibbons is the Co-Founder CMO of Cosmic JS, an API-first Cloud-based Content Management Platform that decouples content from code, allowing devs to build slick apps and websites in any programming language they want.

Design Spin is a boutique independent design and development shop in Norwich, England. Principal Jason Foster focuses on creating premium interactive experiences for clients through web and mobile…

React’s ⚛️ new Context API

  • The provider component puts the data into context, and the Higher Order Component pulls the data out of context.
  • The first pull request to that repository is from Andrew Clark (react core team member) and it’s called “New version of context”.
  • , but if that’s not your jam, you could easily implement a Higher Order Component or something else using the context API (which is why it’s the best).
  • The React team will remove the warning about context being an experimental feature because it’s now a “first-class feature” of the framework.
  • One question that I’ve seen a lot about the new context API (or the render prop pattern in general) is how to compose providers and consumers together.

React’s new context API way more ergonomic, it’s no longer “experimental,” and it’s now a first-class API! OH, AND IT USES A RENDER PROP!

React: Re-render a Component On Route Change

  • In other words: reloading/refreshing the same React component when visiting a link.
  • It makes sense to have a single React component for calling the API endpoints depending on the location pathname.
  • As you can see TableContainer is the only React component for fetching data.
  • More about presentational and container components: writing React components – – It should call the appropriate endpoint whenever I click /subscribers or /leads.
  • A single React component can fetch the data from different endpoints depending on the location pathname.

A common scenario with React Router: re-render a component on route change

Why is It Better to Use ReactJS over Others? – Aglowid It Solutions

Why is It Better to Use ReactJS over Others? 

#reactjs #ReactNative #React

  • If you hire ReactJS developer, they will not only create ultra-fast user interfaces but also with a simple Chrome extension, they can debug the codes.
  • Another advantage of using ReactJS development services is JSX.
  • Simply, JSX lets developers mix JavaScript and  HTML; with JSXTransformers, ReactJS turns all HTML tags into functions.
  • React-Native, also developed by Facebook in 2015 follows the footsteps of ReactJS to develop mobile applications for iOS, Android, and other platforms.
  • ReactJS with its Virtual DOM renders web pages on the server itself; and then sends it to the browser thereby making it easier for search engines.

React or ReactJS developed by Facebook back in 2013 is a JavaScript library that creates web interfaces which can change without a user reloading the page. If you hire ReactJS developer, they will not only create ultra-fast user interfaces but also with a simple Chrome extension, they can debug the codes. One of the prime…

React Vs React Native. What’s the Difference? [The Best Part of both??]

React Vs React Native. What’s The Difference? #ReactNative #reactjs #React

  • ReactJS or simply reacts a JavaScript library that supports both front end and back end efficacies for developing web applications and user interfaces.
  • So, how does it relate to ReactJS and React-Native – – Well, in ReactJS development services, Virtual DOM is used to refresh parts of a webpage rather than the whole page and thus makes it faster than usual DOM.
  • React-Native equips everything needed for the development of mobile applications, so it is comparatively easier to set up but offers lot less option than ReactJS.
  • ReactJS development services use JSX, a special syntax that allows programmers to blend both JavaScript and HTML.
  • React-Native only caters to mobile app development and has no relation with ReactJS.

Check what’s the difference in react vs react native. And which developer should you hire for your next web or mobile application. We have given detailed comparison between both and what skills react or react native developer should have in order to get hired.
