ReactJS Authentication Tutorial, Part 2

ReactJS Authentication Tutorial, Part 2  #web_dev #front_end #cli #reactjs #Programming

  • The component is pulling data from an API, so it needs a way of holding that data.
  • In the constructor, we define the initial state as seen in the code below:

    In the method, we call the method we exported from the helper file and set state as seen below:

    Now, we took advantage of one of the ReactJS lifecycle hooks, .

  • So, we invoked the method in the hook as seen below:

    All we are trying to do is tell ReactJS to load the data from the API immediately when the component gets rendered.

  • Finally, we rendered the component with the ReactJS method.
  • This renders the root component in the div, which is the starting point of our ReactJS application.

We continue our series on creating an authenticated ReactJS application by looking at how to setup our front-end with the help of Facebook’s CLI tool.

Topcoder Getting Started with ReactJS

Getting Started with ReactJS - A blog that is supplemented by a Fun Challenge!

  • ReactJS uses JSX to transpire the HTML element on the web page.
  • React first converts JSX into a JavaScript file that is rendered by the browser, resulting in HTML code.
  • BABEL converts JSX code in JavaScript and takes care of cross-browser compatibility.
  • ReactJS functions are called components.
  • ReactJS gives us power to pass data between components and we do it using props and states.

Have you ever thought of passing your HTML code into JavaScript code? How about displaying HTML elements via JavaScript?

Structuring React Components – Kacper Goliński – Medium

Structuring React Components  #javascript #reactnative #react #webdevelopment #reactjs

  • React ComponentsIn this short post, I would like to describe how to structure react components.The main idea is to have a structure that helps to build highly maintainable and scalable software and makes it easy for developers to navigate and find files.Each component has its own directory and inside it, we put all related files.
  • It will be also relatively easy to move components around or to create a separate package since all important code will be already packed up.Example componentsWe have to start with components directory which contains “global” components, used in different parts of an application.Above we can see Search / component, which is used in TopNavbar / and somewhere else in the app, that’s why both components are at the same main level.TopNavbar/ directory contains following files and directories:index.js – it contains only single line which exports TopNavbar default.
  • /TopNavbar’;TopNavbar.jsx – main component structure (layout).
  • Private components contain own tests, other private components, and styled-components.
  • Stories for react-storybook are only created for the main component not for private ones.ConclusionAt first, this structure may look complex and overcomplicated.

@matzatorski Reason bindings for react-native!

  • There are many missing APIs and the existing ones are not guaranteed to work.
  • Contributions of Components and APIs are very welcome!
  • Since we have a proper type system we can make styles typesafe!
  • Therefore styles are a little bit different declared than in JavaScript:

    You can generate an interface file ( ) with

    This generates the OCaml variant of the interface file.

  • To obtain a reason interface you can copy it into Reason Tools.
