Container Components and Stateless Functional Components in React – Zsolt Nagy

  • Let’s introduce functional components: – – has become a function with a argument, returning the return value of the method of the original implementation.
  • Implications of the structure of stateless functional components: – – In the introduction, I mentioned that stateless functional components come with performance benefits.
  • Typically, container components have the following properties: – – The rule of thumb for choosing the appropriate syntax for React components is the following: – – then it is advised to use stateless functional components.
  • Let’s put theory into practice, and transform all the stateless component in our chat application into functional components.
  • Reviewing the conditions for modeling a component with a function, we can see that there is absolutely nothing preventing us from creating a functional equivalent of the class.

We will now introduce another way to define simple components. You will not only write less code, but you will also benefit from performance optimizations done by React. Let’s introduce functional components:

Why We Use Styled Components – Hacker Noon

Why We Use Styled Components:  by @_alanbsmith #JavaScript #ReactJS

  • That’s not what CSS-in-JS is about regardless of the hype.Styled Components Isn’t the Right Choice for Every TeamI’m not saying Styled Components is better than Radium, Aphrodite, Glamor, Glamorous, Emotion, or any of the other CSS-in-JS libraries.
  • BEM, SMACSS, and other CSS patterns provide a lot of great guidelines for managing styles.
  • 🎉)From my experience, building a component library is the best way to keep UI consistent and predictable across applications, and CSS-in-JS has been the best tooling available to build these libs.Why We Chose Styled ComponentsWe ❤️ Styled ComponentsWe were drawn to CSS-in-JS for the reasons mentioned above, but Styled Components…
  • Along with the basic Sass support, there’s also Polished, a small toolset created by Styled Components to provide additional Sass functionality and other helpful tooling.Native Mobile SupportOur team is also in the process of developing a native mobile app with React Native.
  • Those conversations will help establish patterns for best-practices leading us to more consistent and predictable UI.Final ThoughtsStyled Components has been great for our team, and I think it could be really useful for a lot of other teams as well.

Unfortunately Twitter is not ideal for providing context and longer explanation, and I thought this might be a good way to follow up. Given that, a lot of this article describes what led to our…

now it’s easier than ever to contribute to react-native docs!

  • As mentioned above, the ‘docs/’ folder contains the source files for all of the docs in the React Native website.
  • If you’re adding a new doc or you need to alter the order the docs appear in the sidebar, take a look at the ‘sidebars.json’ file in the ‘website/’ directory.
  • The React Native website is versioned as to allow users to go back and see the API reference docs for any given release.
  • json’ files will be copied over to the corresponding location within ‘website/versioned_docs/’ and keeps track of the list of versions for the site in the ‘website/versions.
  • The ‘showcase.json’ file contains the list of users that are highlighted in the React Native showcase.

A CLI #Reactjs performance optimization tool that identifies potential unnecessary re-rendering

  • Reactopt identifies specific events that may be causing unnecessary re-rendering of components in your application, and which components may benefit from utilizing shouldComponentUpdate.
  • Prior to React 16, the module react-addons-perf helped identify locations that developers may want to implement shouldComponentUpdate to limit over-rendering.
  • However, since the module is no longer supported we created Reactopt to fill the gap, and also provide increased functionality for any version of React.
  • After you’re finished and type ‘done’, you will see an audit on your application’s component performance.
  • Include this code at the top of your main React component file (our module is meant to be used in development mode): – – Include this script in your package.json: – – This module was created by Candace Rogers, Pam Lam, Vu Phung, Selina Zawacki – – Let us know!…
