Why ReactJS is becoming popular as a Javascript library!

Our new blog throws light on the hot new #javascript  library, #reactjs !

  • While the React’s brothers (Angular, Ember, Backbone) are dubbed as client-side MVC frameworks, this guy is different.
  • Angular is an entire framework while React is just a library.
  • But with React Router (for routing), Relay, GraphQL (for declaring dependencies) and React Native, it clearly outweighs Angular.
  • With React we attain the freedom to choose, which is lacking in Angular.
  • With the release of Angular 2.0, and the news that it is not backward compatible,  React swooped in and stole the hearts and minds of legions of developers with a ‘simple view library’.

Learn about the exciting world of React JS, a simple view library developed for UI designing that ushers in clean code and better modularization in web projects.

Why Rails developers should learn React – Statuscode – Medium

Why #Rails developers should learn #ReactJS:  #JavaScript

  • Since Facebook released it in 2013, React has rapidly grown in popularity among developers — from solo hackers to small startups to large teams, a lot of people are choosing React to build their web and mobile apps.In many ways, React is to the modern frontend, as Rails is to the backend — there are many alternatives, but React has the best combination of simplicity, power and community momentum to make it a great choice.Web UIs have matured a lot over the last decade.
  • Many companies are moving their frontend away from plain Rails templates and jQuery over to React, so learning React would give you a unique advantage over others vying for the same jobs.Every other job post on Hacker News mentions it.Even if React itself is replaced by something else, the concept of reactive UI — UI as functional components is here to stay.
  • Coming from an imperative background, React’s declarative approach will make you see software in a different light and make you a better developer.It’s also your chance to get into mobile developmentOnce you learn to use React with Rails, you can also use React Native to build mobile apps for the same API.
  • Since many people are finding React superior at least for medium to large projects, you might want to consider using it right from the start of a project if you expect it to grow into more than a small side project.As the tooling around React improves (see Create React App), the initial hurdles to getting productive with React will also disappear (as they did with Rails).
  • There are many pros and cons and different configurations for using these gems.There are also other ways to use React with Rails, as outlined in this accompanying blog post.Here’s a few other tutorials, tools and resources worth checking out:For a quick and easy start, check out my Free React on Rails course on Learnetto.

Is Model-View-Controller dead on the front end? – Free Code Camp

Is Model-View-Controller dead on the front end?  by @alexnmoldovan #JavaScript #ReactJS

  • Similar to the Controller, the Model is breaking the Single Responsibility Principle, because you don’t have a separate way of managing UI State and Application State .
  • Developers didn’t seem to care much about the architecture itself.
  • With the popularity of React and component-based architecture , we saw the rise of unidirectional architectures for managing application state.
  • Our current discussion of front-end vs back-end architecture only came about in late 2010.
  • Through the five-year process, front-end architecture evolved into what it is today.

More and more front-end developers are adopting unidirectional architectures. So what’s the future for the classic Model-View-Controller (MVC) approach? In order to understand how we got to this…

Vue.js Is Good, but Is It Better Than Angular or React?

#VueJS Is Good, but is it better than #AngularJS or #ReactJS? - DZone Web Dev

  • We would like to compare these two frameworks from a developer’s perspective with a few simple how-tos for each framework.
  • Neither Vue.js is new nor less popular compared to other frameworks as per it’s lifetime.
  • Overall, Vue provides an answer to the issue of React & Angular and gives you much simpler and easier way to code.
  • Combining with some other tools It also becomes a “framework”.
  • From our last blog on ValueCoders , you already know that Vue.js is one of the top JavaScript frameworks and it is replacing Angular and React in many cases.

The greatest benefit of Vue is it’s absence of pedigree. It is fresh and has little baggage.

Teaching React Without Using React. – Eric Clemmons – Medium

A novel way to teach React w/out using React...or even JavaScript!



#reactjs #javascript

  • The React (JSX) version is merely a syntax change to the components & using react-dom to render.
  • (For the demo, the component also renders the state object as a string into the DOM.
  • With each component, we can clearly see how data is passed around and what each component’s expectations are.
  • Components can be very dynamic, as long as the state is, too!
  • Being able to fetch data when a specific component needs it or integrate with 3rd party scripts is an essential escape hatch.

The one thing that no one properly explains about React — Why Virtual DOM

The one thing that no one properly explains about #ReactJS — Why Virtual DOM?

  • By relinquishing DOM manipulation for itself, it allows for different components or pieces of your code to request DOM modifications without having to interact among themselves, without having to go around sharing the fact that they’ve modified or want to modify the DOM.
  • The particular behaviour can be achieved without a virtual DOM. You can manually group all the DOM modifications in a DOM fragment yourself and then dump it into the DOM.
  • virtual-dom will then figure out how to make the DOM look like this efficiently without recreating all of the DOM nodes.
  • The style information along with the nodes in the DOM tree are used to create another tree, called the render tree
  • All nodes in the DOM tree have an “attach” method, which takes in the calculated style information, and returns a render object (a.k.a. renderer)

The other day a friend had this React question for me: “Composition through components, one way data binding; I understand all that, but why Virtual DOM?”..
