The Beginner’s Guide to ReactJS – kentcdodds

  • You can find it here: weeks ago, my newsletter was an overview of the Advanced React Component Patterns course (that’s been published today!)
  • This week I’d like to talk a little bit about the other course that was published: The Beginner’s Guide to ReactJS.In the beginner’s course every lesson is an individual index.html file.
  • If you ever teach a total beginner React, make sure that you help them get a solid understanding that creating React elements is not magic and that JSX is a really simple abstraction on top of React.createElement.
  • Learn React Fundamentals and Advanced Patterns — I’m just pretty excited about the course release!

Rendering a function with React – kentcdodds

  • But there are reasons for the API as it is and that’s not what we’re going over in this newsletter…With ReactSo thinking about this in the context of React:const getHomeContent = getContent(‘pages.home’)const ui = ( a href=”/about” {getHomeContent(‘nav.about’)} /a)// that’ll get you:a href=”/about”About/aSo far so good.
  • Anyway, this will break the app:const getHomeContent = getContent(‘pages.typo’)const ui = ( a href=”/about” {getHomeContent(‘nav.about’)} /a)// 💥 error 💥Again, this is happening because getContent(‘pages.typo’) will return the string {pages.typo} (to indicate that there’s no content at that path and the developer needs to fix that problem to get the content)….
  • The issue is that you can’t invoke a string but that’s what’s happening because getHomeContent is a string, not a function.A solution and a new problemSo the change I made this week makes it so when there’s no content at a given path, instead of a string, it returns a “sorta-curried”…
  • No problem.So now this wont throw an error, but we lose rendering the path if there’s no content!const getHomeContent = getContent(‘pages.typo’)const ui = ( a href=”/about” {getHomeContent(‘nav.about’)} /a)// that’ll get you:a href=”/about”/aAnd we want to make sure that we show the missing content so it’s more obvious for developers (yes…
  • Let’s rewrite the above to make this more clear:const getHomeContent = getContent(‘pages.typo’)const aboutContent = ui = a in this example is a function because the call to getContent had a typo, so we’ll never actually find content that matches the full path.

JavaScript programmers need to learn Clojure – Reactive Conf

#JavaScript programmers NEED to learn #Clojure:  #ReactJS

  • And later he gave one of the most exciting talks of the last year’s ReactiveConf:Eventually, since we are huge fans of Clojure, we joined our efforts with EuroClojure and persuaded them to organize their 2016 conference in Bratislava:Clojure has forever changed the JavaScript communityMaybe you’ve never heard about Clojure, but it’s had a huge impact on you how program front-ends regardless.
  • Redux, immutable data, time travel debugging, hot reloading — all of this has been inspired by the Clojure community.Its creator, Rich Hickey, has taught us over the time thatDaniel Higginbotham summarized the key takeaways in The Unofficial Guide to Rich Hickey’s Brain, and I strongly recommend this read for everyone coming to functional programming from the OOP world.Closer look at ClojureNow you’re wondering what makes Clojure so special.Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and we all know the jokes about Lisp parentheses, don’t we?
  • Even the code is just a huge nested list of lists, which is where the parentheses come from.Extremely simple Clojure exampleThis simplicity makes it easy to write functions that transform and generate the Clojure code.
  • For instance, generators, CSP, destructuring, or pattern matching, are implemented in Clojure as macros.You don’t use classes and objects in Clojure, you work with pure data instead.
  • The ticket will grant you access to all three days of the event.3 days packed with React, Reason, Vue, Angular, Clojure, and moreDon’t forget to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Medium for exciting news and announcements.By Samuel Hapák, co-organizer of ReactiveConf

It’s half past noon, and I’m sitting in a nice hummus place in Manhattan. I look anxiously at the big clock on the wall every few seconds because I should be having lunch with David Nolen, my…
