React Vs Polymer – Rayn Studios – Medium

React Vs Polymer  #frontenddevelopment #polymer #react #javascript #reactjs

  • In React, I wrote every single component from scratch.
  • I know that there are components, designed by the community, for React as well but I did not really feel the need to use a third party component.React: +1 for SimplicityReact is easy to pick up and being productive from the get-go.
  • the idea that you can mutate the bindings from both the parent and the child, actually gives you nightmares, while debugging, if you are not careful enough.Often times, I was confused about the data flows and abrupt states, my components were in, due to the fact that I was mutating the binding from the parents and the children, based on my own logic.
  • not total, but that’s how I felt, many a times.Enter React, along with its ideologies of props and states.
  • Projects made with Polymer look quite good and are very accessible, due to Polymer elements following Material Design Ideology very strictly.On the other hand, React provides you with nothing, more than vanilla CSS, if you know how to use that properly.

I’ve been building apps for five years now but I’ve dabbled in Single Page Applications (SPAs), only in 2016, when I had to build a dashboard for my app startup Pollen Chat. Recently I released a new…

Congratulations on 🌟50,000🌟 stars, @reactnative! Here’s to the next 50,000 🥂

  • Another great way to learn more about the components and APIs included with React Native is to read their source.
  • The React Native documentation only discusses the components, APIs and topics specific to React Native (React on iOS and Android).
  • For further documentation on the React API that is shared between React Native and React DOM, refer to the React documentation.
  • If you encounter a bug with React Native we would like to hear about it.
  • For help and questions with using React Native please make use of the resources listed in the Getting Help section.

Why React Native is the Best Choice for Making Native Apps

  • The React Native CLI lets you start a new native app project that will work on both iOS and Android.
  • One of my favorite features of React Native app development is live reload.
  • React Native builds upon React’s philosophy of “Learn once, write anywhere,” making it easy for React web developers to build native apps.
  • Composable unified UI codebases, instant app updates, and better development tooling make React Native the better way to make native apps.
  • And if you want to check out a great example of a React Native app for data visualization, Victory UI Explorer by Angela Nicholas is one of my favorite Formidable projects.

Composable unified UI codebases, instant app updates, and better development tooling make React Native the better way to make native apps.

JavaScript Frameworks: Learn React JS – Brandon Morelli – Medium

  • Stephen Grider has created two courses for learning React — A beginners course and an advanced course.
  • This is great because you can try the first course and see if you like React.
  • If you’re unaware, Redux is a state manager that helps you manage ‘state’ within your React applications.
  • That’s why you take Stephen’s course.
  • Redux: reducers, actions, and the state tree.Another ‘learn by building’ course, you’ll walk away with production ready web applications.

According to the 2016 Stack Overflow Survey, React is in the top ten for developer salaries and it’s the #1 fastest growing technology. That means more jobs and more opportunities for you — There’s…

Leveraging code-splitting in React Apps

  • Code-splitting allows you to split your code into separate bundles which you can load them on demand.
  • Code-splitting actually it allows you to split your code into separate bundles which you can load them on demand.
  • In Asynchronous way, you could do that by import, then calling a function, passing the path to your module, and then it returns a promise, and with the promise, you could actually do whatever you want to do.
  • Create a state that has the AsyncComponent, which is default, which is not a default, and in the componentDidMount, lifecycle method, you could call your component, because you’re passing a function, and then resolve the import actually, to get the module, and set the state to the AsyncComponent, and this basically loads, or this gives you the possibility to load, or to render the module as it’s there.
  • So there’s some useful patterns about code-splitting, which is when you start to improve your performance or pitch speed, you should definitely consider vendors, like longterm caching, it’s like split your bundle, or, put your common modules together into one, and like it renders, and your other modules into your separate views.

Code-splitting allows you to split your code into separate bundles which you can load them on demand. How do you do it? Why is it useful? How would you do it in React? Answers to these questions and more in the talk.

Why Code Reviews are Important – David Leger – Medium

Why Code Reviews are Important  #softwaredevelopment #react #learningtocode #reactjs

  • Why Code Reviews are ImportantAh code reviews… That dreadful, tedious task that interrupts your focus and takes time away from meaningful work.
  • I can’t count how many times my code has sat in PR (pull request, if you’re unfamiliar with git lingo), lonely and waiting for approval by my fellow developers.
  • It’s understandable that people put off code review for the reasons I mentioned above and many more.As a junior developer (which I still am), I felt similarly towards code reviews.
  • However what I didn’t understand at the time was that the code review was more for me than it was for them.This became clear to me while I was reviewing a PR from a senior developer one day.
  • It’s hard to pick up on best practices on your own (at least I thought so), so being able to see how more experienced developers write components is a great way to learn how to write better code.Once I was able to see code reviews as a learning opportunity rather than a check on my coworkers’ code, I was able to gain a lot of value from them.

Ah code reviews… That dreadful, tedious task that interrupts your focus and takes time away from meaningful work. I can’t count how many times my code has sat in PR (pull request, if you’re…
