Are you looking to make ajax calls in React?  #react #reactjs #javascript

  • One of the questions many React beginners ask: “What’s the React way to fetch data from the server” or “How should I make AJAX calls in React”?
  • So, in this article I will try to answer this basic question and list down 5 simple libraries for making AJAX calls in React.
  • In the former, official React tutorial, they use jQuery to fetch data from the server.
  • Here is how a simple API call is made, with jQuery: – – P.S. Snippet is from React’s former official tutorial.
  • However, jQuery is a big library with many functionalities – So, it doesn’t make sense to use it just for making API calls (Unless you are already using it for a bunch of other tasks).

I have been working with React for the last two years. One of the questions many React beginners ask: "What’s the React way to fetch data from the ser.

Why shouldn’t I use jQuery in React?

  • what you could do in theory is move the state outside of react in something like redux.
  • so JQuery does something -> statecontainer gets the update -> react will do something accordingly.
  • in theory react is just a view library, so you could use jquery to build your framework and render everything with react still react can only “see and hear” what’s happening in react.
  • it’s functional so it does not care about the global state unless you patch it in.
  • I would not use jQuery in react unless it’s really necessary, which it’s probably not.

Almost everyone is saying: »Don’t use jQuery in React!«
But they don’t really explain why. They just say don’t use it. I haven’t found any good reasons yet. No problem to use it! Example: VS Don’t use it! Why:.

Framework Event Listeners

View and Remove JS Event Listeners in @ChromiumDev Tools:  by @umaar #JavaScript #ReactJS

  • You can view JavaScript event listeners in the Events Listeners pane within the Elements Panel.
  • You see all registered event listeners on the inspected element, for example , , etc.
  • This is useful for quickly figuring out whether a JS event listener is the cause of an unexpected bug.
  • As a solution, if you check the ‘Framework Event Listeners’ checkbox, DevTools can resolve the original code (e.g. your source code).
  • Note: I have only tested the ‘Framework Event Listeners’ feature with jQuery.

What web development tools should I learn in 2017? – Craig Childs – Medium

What web development tools should I learn in 2017?  #vuejs #php #go #react #laravel #reactjs

  • Javascript FrameworksMy knowledge with frontend development tools is somewhat limited, at least, that’s how I feel when I see VueJS React articles packages being thrown left-right and center.
  • I need to consider the skills and knowledge of my colleagues; they need to be able to jump into a project I’m working on and confidently pick up where I left off.
  • Am I safe sticking with vanilla JS and/or jQuery?I’ve been fortunate to spend a bit of time having a play around with VueJS and to me, this is the simplest library for someone to jump into with minimal knowledge.
  • I managed to get a small yet complex dynamic frontend (It was even an SPA) in a matter of a few hours.
  • I would feel comfortable using VueJS on a project where a competent developer is likely to come aboard, with little pre-existing knowledge of the framework.However I’ve not had a chance to try out React and the various tooling surrounding it.

2017 has been an interesting year for me, I feel like I’ve learned so much about myself, my skills and the industry which is “Web Applications”. I’ve stumbled upon so many great, new ideas …
