Essential React Libraries in 2018

  • But in the end, when implementing a larger application, you need a couple of more libraries to have a sophisticated web application with React as its core.
  • The following article will give you an opinionated approach to select from these libraries to build a sophisticated React application.
  • In plain JavaScript, it would be possible to create a React class attribute with conditionals: – – But it is so much easier with the classnames library: – – It works perfectly with CSS modules too.
  • The library is for many people almost mandatory in applications when it comes to conditional stylings in React.
  • Basically a fetch looks like the following, for instance in a React lifecycle method when a component mounts: – – Basically you wouldn’t have to add any other library to do the job.

Often it is difficult to find all the relevant libraries to complement your React application, because React’s ecosystem is a flexible yet large framework. The article gives you an opinionated React setup by choosing essential libraries: Redux, MobX, React Router, Flow, Styled Components, Lodash, Ramda, Prettier, Axios, …

Top JavaScript Libraries & Tech to Learn in 2018 – JavaScript Scene – Medium

  • There are still lots of developers working on Angular code bases, which shows up in Google trends:But as React continues to win customer satisfaction surveys, React growth has left Angular (and everything else) in the dust.What About Vue.js?
  • Vue.js is going to have a much harder time stealing users from React than they are having stealing users from jQuery and Angular.There’s plenty of room for Vue.js to pick up a lot of Angular and jQuery users at a fast clip, but they will likely hit a brick wall…
  • Why so Much Interest in React?Browsing through the React job listings, I noticed an interesting trend — a lot of them were for things that we don’t think of as front-end web work:React Native (for perspective, there are more of these openings than the total number of Vue.js openings)React for IoTReact for AR/VR…
  • In fact, I found quite a few React job listings that didn’t even mention JavaScript.React also offers a rich, vibrant ecosystem piggybacking on React’s de-facto standards — something the JavaScript world hasn’t seen since jQuery plugins ruled the web.The question is no longer “which framework?”
  • We have a great framework to build apps on now, and there’s a great ecosystem settling in around React.Which Topics Should You Study?Like last year, you can’t go wrong focusing on the essentials, but you should place more emphasis on functional programming for React apps.React is great for two primary reasons:Deterministic…

Last year, I wrote an article rounding up the top tech to learn in 2017. This year there are some surprises. First, software ate the world, the web ate software, and JavaScript ate the web. In 2018…

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…
