Norbert de Langen: Storybook has reached outside the React ecosystem & will continue to do so

Read our interview with @NorbertdeLangen about his recent work on Storybook:  #ReactJS

  • We strongly believe the problems Storybook solves are not unique to any single platform.Of course, we’re also going to be improving the features and performance of Storybook, and create new ways for you to extend Storybook and customise it for your use-case.
  • Finally: we’re really seeing the community getting involved with Storybook, we get pull requests making Storybook better in all sorts of ways we didn’t expect.
  • So who knows what will be included in the next release?Has rebranding from React Storybook changed its culture or direction?The culture certainly changed — now the community itself is driving Storybook forward.
  • If anything, I’d say our focus on helping the community co-maintain Storybook has had a major impact.Do your company clients adapt React style guides to their workflow?Yes in fact, most of them do.What do you think is the future of web and mobile development?Who knows?
  • I’m super excited about native support for ES modules in the modern browsers and Node.js!What are your favorite components, libraries, or community projects?Babel, Webpack, React, Glamorous, Yarn, Express, ESlint, Prettier, Jest, GraphQL.I’m also a huge fan of community-driven meetups.Pick one and tell us why: Redux or MobX?It depends.

Today, we’re opening our new series of interviews for React Day Berlin. Since Norbert de Langen is going to speak about building Storybook in Berlin in December, we decided to ask him a couple of…

My experience with React 16

  • If you have a React 15.5 app which doesn’t use deprecated features and doesn’t throw errors, then React 16 just works!
  • One of my favorite things about React is that it gives me access to a great library of open-source components.
  • And thanks to the stability of React’s API, I haven’t needed to upgrade many of these components… until now.
  • In previous versions of React, throwing exceptions within event handlers would have unpredictable results.
  • While React’s API hasn’t changed much, it has an entirely new engine under the hood called React Fiber.

Now I don’t want to waste your time with another “What is React 16?”; the official blog is already very informative. But what I can give you is the story of my experience this week, when I upgraded a large project to React 16.

Stack Overflow: ReactJS and Docker in great demand, Go not so much

#ReactJS And #Docker In Great Demand, Go Not So Much  #javascript #containers #DevOps

  • Yes, knowing how to use ReactJS, Docker, Ansible and Apache Spark will help you find a job faster but if WordPress is on your list of skills, you shouldn’t get your hopes up too high.
  • Developers who know their way around the cloud (back end) or have iOS, Android or DBA (MySQL) skills are in luck; these areas are all hungry for qualified candidates.
  • There are a lot of developers with WordPress skills and not enough companies that need them.
  • Although specialization is important, as John Z. Sonmez, author of Soft Skills: The software developer’s life manual wrote in an article for JAXenter, developers should have a wide variety of skills.
  • However, you also need to understand that your coding skills are just the beginning of what most companies are looking for in a programming recruit.

Stack Overflow looked at targeting options for employers on Stack Overflow Jobs used by 200+ companies since early 2015.

Firekit concepts to sync Firebase and redux – Tarik Huber – Medium

Firekit concepts to sync Firebase and redux  #react #firebase #javascript #redux #reactjs

  • That is one of the main concepts firekit uses to manage the sync of the firebase realtime database and the redux store.
  • Firekit allows you to make your firebase reference with all the native firebase query and filtering functions and just send the resulting reference to firekit and it will listen to all changes and sync them to the redux store.Saving only simple jsonIf using instances of classes in your library you get into the situation to save to the redux store complicated objects and functions.
  • By saving only simple json in your redux store persistence can be done however you want and with every tool and concept you wish.Persistent listenersThe main reason I choose to create firekit is that all other libraries link the whole listening cycle to a single component.
  • You can leave the listening cycle in a component, page, application or any other level you want.This approach is the same no matter if you are listening to lists or simple paths in the firebase realtime database.ConclusionFirebase is made to make our developer lives easier.
  • The main goals are to give the user maximal flexibility for using firebase and just providing easy and simple tools to sync data to the redux store.I you are interested on how the library works or want to try a real world project visit the github repo with the source code or the demo page.If you like how this library works you could put a star on the github repo đ

Firekit is a library that helps you sync your Firebase realtime database with the redux store of your react application. It uses some new approaches witch we will try to present in this article. If…
