Monday & #ReactNative 💙 


#iOS #Android #mobile #apps #DevOps #software

  • That’s why, today I’d like to share a number of things that boost my productivity while creating mobile app in React Native.
  • Storybook allows you to create stories in which you prepare pre filled UI elements with data that could possibly show up there during normal app lifetime.
  • Later within a few seconds you can easily go through all stories that you’ve described and see how they look on your device / emulator without the need of going through all of these states in normal app flow which takes much longer time.
  • This is a tiny example of a single story, however if you develop a normal app, you will surely have much more of them which may cover all of possible UI states for your components.
  • If your app grows, it’s easy to guess that tests will not run in a matter of milliseconds, but it’s still normal to have a result of them within 1-3 seconds from the time that you saved your file.

A developer needs tools that support her/his workflow to be fully productive. Well, I guess that this statement fits to any profession that you can think of. It is really important for me to feel that the environment that I’m working in really supports my flow and works well with my approach to software development.

What’s the deal with Synthetic Events? – Elizabeth Nicholson – Medium

What’s the deal with Synthetic Events?  #javascript #react #syntheticevent #reactjs

  • What’s the deal with Synthetic Events?Who am I?Synthetic Events are special event handlers that are built into React’s event handling system.
  • There isn’t really anything new about these events, in fact they act similarly to what you were used to with the DOM events handlers.
  • If you decide to use Synthetic Events, your work will be compatible with all modern browsers, as well as older browser versions (but why are you still using IE 1.0??)
  • Synthetic Events makes it easier for the developer to implement interesting features without having to deal with different types of event handling based on different browsers :)Another interesting perk of using Synthetic Events is that it saves memory within your app by attaching one event handler to the root rather than attaching multiple handlers directly to the DOM.
  • By attaching it to the root of the document, that event handler can listen to all other events and call each one when it is necessary.

Organizing Tests in Jest – Jeff Lombard – Medium

Organizing Tests in Jest  #jest #javascript #react #softwaretesting #reactjs

  • This includes organization.I’ve seen two popular ways suggested for organizing tests in Jest:Putting all of your test code into a neatly organized /tests directory.Putting your test code next to the files they are testing.Both of these suggestions are valid, but to have the elegance of a master craftsman, we should consider the level of the test that is being written.Testing LevelsThere are many testing levels, but for simplicity we’re just going to talk about two here.
  • “Unit testing refers to tests that verify the functionality of a specific section of code, usually at the function level.
  • |- /main| |- index.js| |- index.test.jsIntegration tests run against many lines of code in many files.
  • So include the type of test right in the name of the and api.int.test.jsConclusionAn ideal set up would look something like this:|- /main| |- index.js| |- index.unit.test.js|- /supporting| |- fetch.js|- /tests| |- /int| | |- api.int.test.jsThat way you can easily find your tests.
  • For unit testing run jest unit and for integration testing run jest int.As with anything, there is no single way of doing this.

If you haven’t already tried out Jest, you should. Even if you’re not using React. It’s dead simple and loaded with some cool features like snapshot testing. Jest does a great job of keeping reports…
