Story of rewriting react-native-opentok and challenges that we have encountered down the road…

  • Finally, we solved all of them :)This article contains useful steps that you can perform in order to debug and fix real-life issues on native sideWhat is OpenTok?The OpenTok platform, developed by TokBox, makes it easy to embed high-quality interactive video, voice, messaging, and screen sharing into web and mobile apps.It…
  • Here are the most annoying issues that we have encountered on each platform respectively while writing clients:Android: Updating native view doesn’t work.We had a native view which we wanted to update after we connect to a session and receive a stream.
  • Our Subscriber view implements SessionDelegate class what means we can set this view as a delegate in session and listen on events i.e. when session receive a stream, session instance invokes method onStreamReceived on pointer to delegate.
  • Enabling zombies in Xcode is very easy.Click the active scheme in the top left and choose Edit Scheme.Select Run on the left.Open the Diagnostics tab at the top.Tick the checkbox labeled Enable Zombie Objects.Tick the checkbox labeled Enable Zombie Objects.Now Xcode’s Console will give you more complex message i.e.[RNOpenTokSubscriberView respondsToSelector:] message…
  • So remember when you reload JS part of application new instance of your native module will be created but if you are using singleton it will be the same instance as before reload.As I wrote at the beginning we solved all of our issues but some of them took a…

At Callstack we have open source meetings each month. At one of the past meetings we came up with idea to re-maintain our old project called react-native-opentok, because it was a bit dusty and…

Using JSX and React  #React #reactjs #javascript #Framework #programming

  • You use JSX within React code to easily create components for your apps.
  • Here is an example of JSX being used to render HTML:

    To create a component, just use a local variable that starts with an upper-case letter, e.g.:

    Note: There are reserved words in JSX, as it is essentially JavaScript after all—so keywords such as and are discouraged as attribute names.

  • Form creation is easy with JSX and sub-components, for example:

    To make this work, you must create the sub-components as attributes of the main component:

    To use some JavaScript to create a result for use in an attribute value, React just needs you to wrap it in curly braces like so:

    You can also just pass a boolean value for form attributes such as , and so on.

  • First we use to establish signalling of a new user connected via the as so:

    Then, to connect to the PeerServer, we use the following:

    We then listen for events via the method:

    We also have our JSX inside components in the directory.

    Once the push is finished, you will be able to start your web service with the following:

Buid simple React Apps Using Event Emitters – Mokanarangan Thayaparan – Medium

Build simple #ReactJS apps using event emitters

  • Buid simple React Apps Using Event EmittersBuild simple React Apps using Event EmittersI admit the debate for Redux Vs Flux has been settled and there is no point a system so trivial as Eventemitter.
  • I have decided to take a Todo application as example.The usual way of implementing a ToDoThen I added my only clientclass BaseClient {/** * Initiate the event emitter */ constructor() { this.eventEmitter = new EventEmitter(); }/** * Adds the @listener function to the end of the listeners array * for the event named @eventName * Will ensure that only one time the listener added for the event * * @param {string} eventName * @param {function} listener */ on(eventName, listener) { listener); }/** * Will temove the specified @listener from @eventname list * * @param {string} eventName * @param {function} listener */ removeEventListener(eventName, listener) { listener); }/** * Will emit the event on the evetn name with the @payload * and if its an error set the @error value * * @param {string} event * @param {object} payload * @param {boolean} error */ emit(event, payload, error = false) { this.eventEmitter.emit(event, payload, error); }/** * Returns the event emitter * Used for testing purpose and avoid using this during development */ getEventEmitter() { return this.eventEmitter; }}The comments hopefully.
  • Now we can separate the two components and connect it with only events.Add listener at component mount and remove them at unmout// Listen for event componentWillMount() { client.on(‘TODO_ADDED’, this.addEvent); } //Remove listener componentWillUnmount(){ this.addEvent); }Now you don’t need to pass the addEvent function as a prop.Voila.
  • But simple modular ones, easy to maintain.This way we can have multiple modular components that doesn’t need to know about other components.
  • This is not rocket science but this might help you build simple apps without much hassle.

I admit the debate for Redux Vs Flux has been settled and there is no point a system so trivial as Eventemitter. But having worked with React and Redux for more than a year I found out two things. In…

React Native — first impressions – Real Life Programming – Medium

React Native — first impressions  #react #softwaredevelopment #reactnative #reactjs

  • Right now QuotesKeeper is already in AppStore and we’ll be posting updated thoughts about React Native soon.Some time ago at DayOne.pl we started a project to build 3 apps with 3 devs in 30 days — the one month project.
  • Most of the knowledge you have about components, lifecycle, state, props, mixins, etc. can be used in your React Native project.
  • Just like you would do in regular React app.There are plenty of libraries ready to be used by your project if any native component is missing.
  • Also built-in React Native list component start scrolling very slow when you have so many elements.
  • You really need to test things out if you plan to work on large datasets.SummaryTo sum things up — would I use React Native in my next project?

First thoughts about React Native after more than a month of iOS app development. Good and bad sides of building your app with React Native.
