6 Pro Tips from React Developers — SitePoint

We've got 1 #reactjs tip from a pro devs for you. Watch  for all 6 tips.

  • Tip 1: Use functional components – Cam Jackson – If you don’t need internal state or lifecycle methods on your component, use a functional component instead.
  • A functional component is a pure JavaScript function that accept props as its argument and returns a React element.
  • Benefits of functional components: – – Less code – Easier to understand – The component is stateless, so you avoid accidentally storing state on a component you shouldn’t – The component is simpler to test – There’s no this binding – It’s easier to see where and when to extract…
  • Keep Tip 1 in mind and extract blocks of code into functional components whenever possible.
  • Tip 6: Use React Developer tools – Brian Gates – With React Developer Tools, available as a Google Chrome and Firefox extension, as well as a standalone app for other environments, you can quickly view your component hierarchy, inspect and edit a component’s props and state, and invoke methods on…

If you’re new to React, you could benefit from learning from React developers who’ve learned valuable lessons about the framework.

Experimenting with React Native & Expo’s Audio API

  • This year, we’re working on a complete refresh (Winds 2.0) that will introduce podcast support, enhanced social functionality, native iOS and Android applications, and much more.
  • With that, we have decided to use React Native to support our iOS and Android builds – a framework that will allow our development team to write applications that target multiple operating systems, with pure JavaScript.
  • We decided to build an audio player for iOS and Android with Expo’s powerful audio API and, of course, React Native.
  • Without React Native and the help of Expo, we would not have been able to target multiple operating systems in the timeframe that we have allotted and we would have to work with two separate codebases.
  • By experimenting and building a fully functional proof of concept, we’re now one step closer to Winds 2.0, and couldn’t be happier to announce that the code is 100% open-source on GitHub.

Stream is hiring Go, Python, and Machine Learning Engineers. Join our team and help powers the feeds for more than 200 million end users!

#ReactNative – Pros and Cons #100DaysOfCode #coding #react #reactjs @reactnewsletter @ReactJSNews

  • When we first heard about React Native, a framework that enables building an app for multiple platforms, we were thrilled.
  • One team, one codebase and the potential to scale an app for iOS and Android using a fracture of resources required in native development is a great promise.
  • A few years ago, Facebook officially announced React Native, a powerful framework with the promise of cross-platform compatibility.
  • The major selling point of React Native is shorter development time.
  • Facebook puts a lot of resources to ensure React Native’s reliability and also to guarantee a constant development of the platform.

React Native: One team, one codebase and potential to scale an app for iOS and Android using a fracture of resources required in native development is a great promise.

Choosing a frontend framework in 2017 – This Dot Labs – Medium

Choosing a #frontend framework in 2017:  #EmberJS #Meteor #ReactJS #AngularJS

  • Many developers were attracted to Angular.js because it was built by Google which gave Angular.js automatic credibility.At about the same time, Web Components specification promised to make it possible for developers to create reusable widgets that were isolated from their context and were easy to compose with other widgets.The Web Components specification was four separate specifications that worked together.HTML Template — provides HTML markup for the componentCustom Element — provides a mechanism to create a custom HTML elementShadow DOM — isolates the internals of the component from the context that rendered itHTML Import — makes it possible to load the Web Component into a pageA team at Google created a polyfill library that provided Web Components for all browsers at the time.
  • The Ember.js team looked at large Backbone applications to find similarities.They identified the need to render nested views where some parts of the application where consistent while other parts changed from one part of the app to another.They also saw the URL as a key player in the architecture of web applications.
  • Some brave Backbone developers were adding React as views to their applications to fix performance problems that they were encountering.In response to the threat posed by React, the Ember core team created a plan to adopt ideas introduced by React into the Ember framework.
  • They recognized the need for backward compatibility and created an upgrade path that allowed existing applications to upgrade to a version of Ember that included a new React-inspired rendering engine.Over the course of 4 minor releases Ember.js deprecated Views, moved the community to a CLI-based build process and made component-based architecture the foundation of Ember application development.
  • The Angular team calls the new framework a platform because they plan to provide everything that a professional developer needs to build web applications.

There’s been a lot of development in the frontend frameworks ecosystem over the last seven years. We’ve learned a lot about what it takes to build and maintain large applications. We’ve seen many new…

How to Be A JavaScript Developer – Ken Rogers – Medium

How to Be A JavaScript Developer  #meteor #javascript #webdevelopment #react #reactjs

  • But I’ve always found that the best way to learn web development is to just build things.Meteor is a great way to get started just building things.It’s become a little more complex since its early days, but with the right setup and direction, it can still be a great way to bootstrap reactive applications.I think it’s a fantastic way to get started learning JavaScript development, or branch out into a new framework if you’ve already been using JavaScript for a while.So I wanted to put together this little guide that will serve as a potential path to learning web development with Meteor and React.All of these are resources that I have personally used and have served me well in learning.
  • Learn ES2015This free walkthrough of ES2015 does a great job of introducing you to the basics and walking you through how to use all of the new shiny things.Step 2 — Learn MeteorAlright, now that you’re familiar with JavaScript and its new syntax and capabilities, it’s time to dive in to Meteor.The Meteor TutorialThe official tutorial from Meteor.
  • The Meteor GuideAfter you’ve been introduced to Meteor with the tutorial, dive in to the guide to learn how to structure your project, and to get some more in depth knowledge on the finer points of MeteorStep 3 — Learn ReactSo you’ve got a decent handle on Meteor, not let’s dive into React.The React DocsThe official React docs do a good job of introducing you to the concepts and how to think in a React-ish way.2.
  • It also comes with GitHub source code so you can use it as an example.Phase 2 — BuildStep 1 — Experiment with BaseNow that you’ve got a good grasp on how to develop using Meteor and React, it’s time to start building things.Base is a Meteor boilerplate project to help you bootstrap your Meteor projects.It’s built with React and also uses React Router.In my opinion, downloading Base and digging into it, hacking on it, and using to as the starting point for your own project is one of the best ways to learn development with Meteor.By digging into Base, you’ll get an idea of best practices when building things with Meteor and React, and you’ll be able to use it as a template for building projects.Using the books and courses from the Learn phase as your foundation, you’ll be able to understand how Base is put together and how it all works.Really take the time to dig into every different component and figure out how everything is working.
  • Resist the urge to bounce around from framework to framework, constantly switching to whatever seems coolest.Instead, find problems that need to be solved, figure out a way to solve them with web applications, and then find the proper tool for the job.One of the most important skills for a professional developer is being able to build usable applications that solve real problems for real people.If you can find examples of those out in the wild, and build up a portfolio of yourself solving those with web apps, you’ll be indispensable.So now that you know the basics of JavaScript development with Meteor and React, I want you to get out there and start using that knowledge to solve real problems.Share that knowledge and those solutions with others.

A few years ago, I stumbled on a video of somebody making a responsive, real-time web app using something called Meteor. If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend giving it a watch. It was pretty…

Why I prefer Ember.js over Angular & React.js

Reasons to prefer #EmberJS over #AngularJS & #ReactJS:

  • Fortunately one month ago I got a chance to work with a client who wanted me to develop his project in Ember.
  • I was not much excited as ember was a known guy to me, but started developing the project as it’s a day to day life for me.
  • But after delivering the project I started thinking of my experiences with these three front-end frameworks and probably today publishing this article out of my emotions.
  • If all the teams of your organization (or even someone outside your organization) are developing ember applications using ember-cli; they will be very familiar to the projects architecture and in no time can start contributing at any project.
  • The developers of Ember’s core team are also developers in their own projects and this is the biggest plus of Ember.

JavaScript, Node.js, mongo, react, angular and many more
