7 Strengths of #ReactJS Every Programmer Should Know About

7 Strengths of #ReactJS Every Programmer Should Know About

  • React is blazingly fastIt is actually much faster than manually manipulating the DOM, which is the reason why Flipboard has built their own React-Canvas library to achieve 60fps performance on the mobile web.Modifying the DOM after every change can be slow, therefore React creates a simplified JavaScript version of DOM called VirtualDOM and uses a diffing algorithm to apply only necessary changes to the real DOM.JavaScript is a reasonably fast language, and typical web apps consist of only several hundreds of DOM elements.
  • They have invested years into creating the Facebook site, so a complete rewrite just to use React would not be justifiable.It is really easy to use React with jQuery, Angular, Backbone, or any other JavaScript framework.4.
  • You can create truly native apps with JavaScript and other tools you know from the web.
  • Some of the biggest innovations in React were actually inspired by ClojureScript, some were taken from Ember, and some come from Elm.Whether it is ClojureScript, Elm, Angular, or Ember, these great people are part of our Reactive Community, and they remind us why we should work together every day.The React ecosystem is extremely focused on developer experience and productivity.
  • But Facebook is not the only big supporter of the React community: Yahoo, Mozilla, Airbnb, Netflix, and other big companies use React in production and have supported the community with useful open-source libraries and tools.6.

In the past six years, we have seen a huge rise of JavaScript on the web. It has become a prominent server-side language and a popular compile target for other languages. Offline-first SPAs have…

The evolution of React

  • XSS does not attack the web application directly; instead, it attacks the users of that web application by attaching an embedded JavaScript code to the user’s request, which in turn steals information and compromises the integrity of the user trying to access a resource on that application.
  • Pete Hunt did not give up: he did most of the work required to decouple React from Facebook’s stack so that Instagram could use it as well, making Instagram the first external product to use React.
  • With this, Facebook was a step away to blessing developers around the world with the awesomeness of React.
  • This library allows developers build real native Android and iOS applications using Javascript and React.
  • The Library proposes a set of ideal primitives that can be used on all React applications irrespective of the platform.

Udacity’s latest Nanodegree will teach React

  • In its quest to reduce persistent skills gaps, Udacity has been designing condensed courses to get students up to speed on trendy topics to improve employment outcomes.
  • As with its other Nanodegree programs, Udacity’s approach to teaching React involves external partners.
  • Following the framework of traditional React Training courses, students will be exposed to React fundamentals early on before learning Redux and React Native — tools offering additional control and new use cases.
  • “Udacity has the resources to do code reviews and offer mentors, we’re just the three of us,” Tyler McGinnis, partner at React Training, told me in an interview when asked about why he felt the partnership with Udacity was beneficial to students.
  • To this avail, Udacity’s CEO Vish Makhijani has been talking to state and local politicians to build out a physical presence — Udacity has been running a program in Reno, Nevada to reach new students in person.
