Why Do Developers Now Compare Vue.js to JavaScript Giants Angular and React?

  • It was 2016 when Vue.js rose to fame and gained so much traction that it’s now seen as an alternative for even well established JavaScript libraries, such as Angular and React.
  • Since Angular belongs to search engine giant Google and React comes from social media behemoth Facebook, developers still trust and use those libraries more than Vue.js.
  • This blog attempts to shed light on why there is a growing belief among developers that Vue.js is set to become the top JavaScript library, leaving behind Angular and React.
  • The reason many developers are turning to Vue is that it addresses the issues of React and Angular.
  • But, one must not forget that Angular and React are still very big names in the JavaScript world, whereas Vue has just begun to rise.

Vue.js, an MIT-licensed open source project, is a JavaScript library for building web interfaces. The library was first released in 2013, but not many developers took cognizance of it in web framework technology for the next two years. It was 2016 wh

React.js Structures JavaScript for Easy Componentization  

  • JavaScript is in the midst of transforming development teams’ expectations for desktop, server and mobile apps.
  • Enhancements to JavaScript are enabling it to break free of the browser, while technologies such as Node.js and its package manager npm facilitate creation of portable front-end and back-end apps that rival those traditionally created for environments such as Windows, Linux and mobile devices.
  • Components encapsulate the necessary HTML, JavaScript and CSS for a particular component, and apps are built by composing components into larger components that encapsulate their own data and logic.
  • React and Facebook provide a number of recommendations and best practices to help developers build their apps, but developers ultimately shoulder the burden of building the app — creating or procuring the various components, designing the data architecture and testing plan, establishing the look and feel of the app, adapting to necessary display environments, and so forth.
  • Many of the ExtReact components leverage the data package to provide consistent buffering, sorting, filtering and pagination capabilities with minimal developer effort.

Building Small Apps with React

Building Small Apps with React  #reactjs #javascript #AppDev #programming #coding

  • Enter Cerebro: a cross platform extensible electron app that provides the perfect tools to build something small but useful with React.
  • Now we can do a bit of setup:

    Our plugin, cerebro-weather, will allow users to search for a city and then show a concise preview of the weather conditions of that city if it exists.

  • Create an file with the following:

    This function makes an initial request to the API to search for a given city.

  • We convert this response to JSON and retrieve the weather details for the first location with the location’s , which is its unique identifier and the only actual way to retrieve weather data from the API.
  • This gets the weather data with our API function, and displays the first consolidated weather report.

C’est la “Vue” – eMAG TechLabs – Medium

Neat article comparing the journey going from #reactjs to #vuejs

  • As you will see, it’s more about knowing what you want and not the number of articles that endorse a framework, the community or even the company behind it.HX TeamHX (Team) stands for Human Experience and was our team name of choice as it suggests the vision that we believe in: “Making intuitive and easy to use applications for all eMAG’s employees.”
  • The framework should have been used for internal applications in eMAG that adopts this architectural design style.Making the choice was not easy, so we’ve started with the following needs and expectations:Large community of developersFast DOM ChangesGreat architectureEasy debuggingTherefore we’ve chose React over Angular 2 (it was in Beta back then).
  • React was created to make DOM changes fast, really fast, so you will have to use React functions to make use of this, some of which you will not be familiar with (because React has a different architectural style)React plugins were not so much customizable as changing some of them required making a forkDon’t get me wrong, React is great, but only if you want to develop a simple application where the UI should not be consistent across different technologies or where DOM changes should be made really, really fast.Vue JSFinding meaning againAs we were put into the position of acknowledging that React doesn’t fit eMAG’s internal needs, we’ve come to discover Vue.js.Vue (pronounced /vjuː/, like view) is a progressive framework for building user interfaces.
  • Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable.Vue was not only great, it was perfect for what we’ve wanted to do:It had an amazing boilerplate with dev and prod tasksIt had linters, libraries for unit and functional tests, all out of the boxIt could be used with jQuery (by making wrappers for plugins)It’s smallIt accepts FLUX architecture if you need itIt has an amazing template engineThe development is easyIt separates the template engine from components javascriptBy making the decision of using Vue we’ve managed to reduce the roadmap time by half (even starting from zero) compared to React.So after a month of hard work, we’ve made wrappers for our JQuery components from eMAG Apps UI Kit, created examples for them, simple unit tests, services all by having a clean code and RESTful APIs to test our frontend.React JS componentexport class Autocomplete extends React.Component {constructor(props) { super(props); this.state = { value: this.props.value || ”, } }componentWillMount() { this.options = this.
  • find(‘#date_time_’ + } catch (ex) {} } }/scriptConclusionNow we can say that when making a choice we have different criteria that we are looking for:Easy to useFamiliarCommunity (not so much plugins, but responses for issues)Reuse of our code

As technology is evolving at a fast pace and microservices are a thing now, the number of frontend libraries/frameworks that endorse this architectural design style has gone up to the roof. Making a…

Stack Overflow: ReactJS and Docker in great demand, Go not so much

#ReactJS And #Docker In Great Demand, Go Not So Much  #javascript #containers

  • Yes, knowing how to use ReactJS, Docker, Ansible and Apache Spark will help you find a job faster but if WordPress is on your list of skills, you shouldn’t get your hopes up too high.
  • Developers who know their way around the cloud (back end) or have iOS, Android or DBA (MySQL) skills are in luck; these areas are all hungry for qualified candidates.
  • There are a lot of developers with WordPress skills and not enough companies that need them.
  • Although specialization is important, as John Z. Sonmez, author of Soft Skills: The software developer’s life manual wrote in an article for JAXenter, developers should have a wide variety of skills.
  • However, you also need to understand that your coding skills are just the beginning of what most companies are looking for in a programming recruit.

Stack Overflow looked at targeting options for employers on Stack Overflow Jobs used by 200+ companies since early 2015.
