React-based UI frameworks – Prototyping: From UX to Front End

  • Most of these are meant more as a window into process (and as a recruiting tool) than as an open standard that other developers can use, but the principles are the same: a reusable library of components with standardized markup.Having a strong design system and a frontend architecture that’s designed to support it is incredibly powerful.Today, even more of the frontend stack has evolved toward a modular, component-based architecture.
  • Here’s the markup for the Feedback component in MailChimp’s library:div class=”feedback-block warning section” role=”status” div class=”lastUnit size1of1″ div class=”c-media” div class=”c-mediaImage v-isFreddicon” span class=”freddicon warn-circle”/span /div div class=”c-mediaBody–centered” h4Account status /h4 p You closed your account on Nov 29, 2013 07:00 pm /p /div /div /div/divDepending on the component, you may also need to include a JS file to handle any interactivity or other logic the component needs.In React, the markup and logic for this component would be defined in only one place, so rendering it would look something like this:Feedback type=”warning” title=”Account status” You closed your account on Nov 29, 2013 07:00 pm/FeedbackReact’s templating system is JSX — this concise version will get translated into the same markup as the top example in the browser.
  • The great thing about this system is that if the keepers of the MailChimp design system wanted to change this component, they’d just change it in one place — the JSX for rendering it would stay the same.
  • In the old world, updating the uses of this component would be a messy and error-prone find-and-replace operation.Having a strong design system and a frontend architecture built around it is incredibly powerful.
  • More importantly, users benefit from a predictable system that works the same everywhere across an app — every time I see a Feedback block in MailChimp it looks and works exactly the same, so my brain spends less effort understanding what’s happening and more on whatever I’m actually trying to accomplish.The list of React-based UI frameworks is steadily growing.

There’s a new crop of web UI frameworks in town, in the grand tradition of Bootstrap, a framework developed at Twitter. Five years ago, Bootstrap was not only an easy way to put together a UI that…
