Hacker News readers as Progressive Web Apps

  • A spiritual successor to TodoMVC

    TodoMVC has helped thousands of developers select
    an MV* framework for their JavaScript applications.

  • However, the web ecosystem
    has evolved in the past few years allowing us to build powerful applications using
    modern browser capabilities.
  • To provide developers with examples, we collected a list of unofficial Hacker News clients built with a number of popular JavaScript frameworks and libraries.
  • Each implementation is a complete Progressive Web App that utilizes
    different progressive technologies to provide a fast, reliable and engaging experience.
  • Our implementations aim to follow a loose specification.

SVG icon sets in React with Rollup – Helpful Human – Medium

SVG icon sets in React with Rollup  #icons #svg #design #react #reactjs #reactjs

  • Build a better mousetrapAfter thinking about the problem a while and testing some less than ideal solutions, the Rollup compatible version of Icon.js file looked like this:// The new wayimport Icons from ‘.
  • /Icons’;const IconComponent = Icons[this.props.icon];return {IconComponent IconComponent()};Instead of each SVG being housed in individual React components, every SVG is held within a single file, wrapped in a function, and exported.
  • Each of these functions simply returns an SVG.Exported SVG functionsWe then make all of these functions available by default by adding them to the default export at the end of the file.
  • This pattern allows Rollup to fetch the correct icon with a function call when bundled, and completely bypass the dynamic require from the Webpack configuration.export default { Reply, Search}Icon icon=’Outcome’ color=’black’ size=’small’ /What we end up with, is an icon component that behaves very much like its predecessor but does not rely on Webpack black magic for it to work correctly.While the Webpack implementation still works great, this pattern is a little clearer and only requires you to manipulate a single function to edit, add or remove an SVG.

When I wrote “Embedded SVG icon sets and Reactjs” almost 3 years ago, the way that developers implemented an icon set was considerably different. SVGs were not the most widely used icon types being…

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.

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

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

  • 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.
