React Tutorial Pt 1: A Comprehensive Guide to Building Apps with React.js

  • By now you’ve probably heard about facebook’s React.
  • There has never been a better time to take the leap and start learning React.
  • The difficulty starting out with React isn’t React itself.
  • It’s important to remember React is “just the V in MVC” or “just the view layer”.

Ruby on Rails Is Dead — 2018 Edition – JetRuby

  • The rumors of Ruby’s nascent (inevitable, immutable, irreversible) demise have been whispered about for years inside developer locker rooms, and yet the language and Rails, the framework, are still around, powering hundreds of thousands of websites.
  • The TIOBE index (the index that uses search engine results) places Ruby in the top 20 technologies.
  • It just so happens that due to the unique nature of Ruby, we’re able to write clean code — faster, which is a great thing for startups and businesses that run on lean innovation.
  • Let’s not forget what makes Ruby greatRuby teaches you some great coding habits: such as TDD approach, MVC pattern, separate databases, DRY code, and restful routes, which in the end translates to clean code that needs less testing.
  • It’s up to you, but the truth is: if you’re making a web or enterprise app, with Ruby you’ll write better quality code, spend less time testing and launch your product before your competitors do, so you can start getting revenue and think about where to take your product next….

It’s 2018, and it’s high time for us at JetRuby to once again scrutinise everything we believe in, and answer the million (ish)-dollar question: The rumors of Ruby’s nascent (inevitable, immutable…

Ruby on Rails Is Dead — 2018 Edition – JetRuby

  • To me, that’s a sign of doing pretty darn good, arguably, better than most programming languages, since not all languages/tools are lucky enough to reach these peaks of prominence/awesomeness and credibility.So perhaps it’s time to move away from the morbid, sensationalist language of technological death and discuss Ruby on Rails…

React.js Overview via Alex Azarov  #webdev

React.js Overview via Alex Azarov  #webdev

  • Comparing React.js with Angular or other MVC frameworks makes no sense since React is just a representation.
  • Thus, a = b + c, and A will always depend on the values of B an C. – – React constantly works with the DOM, re-rendering it when conditions change (the part of the DOM that is changed by React.js is called a component).
  • Prior to React, such a practice would have seriously affected the application’s performance, but the developers of React.js approached this problem quite radically: they completely rewrote the DOM in JavaScript.
  • An important feature of React.js is the use of JSX.
  • There exist other extensions for React.js, however, considering the “weight” of the framework, their use should be minimized.

A discussion of the React.js web development framework, the pros and cons of this development tool, and who would be best suited using React in their projects.

Why React JS is Most Likely to Overcast Webpage Designing

Why React JS is Most Likely to Overcast Webpage Designing

  • A brainchild of Facebook, React JS is a front-end JavaScript framework.
  • This helps the developers drastically but React elevates this to another level – – React doesn’t make use of Shadow DOM but it gives the developers the facility to build their own components that can be reused, combined and nested later as well.
  • This gives a productivity boost to the developers and the biggest feature of React JS is the ease of defining and manipulation of the components.
  • # React provides out of the box tools – – React offers the developers numerous tools, one of which is their all helpful official React Chrome extension.
  • We encourage developers to check React JS out for your next project or even for a side project.

A brainchild of Facebook, React JS is a front-end JavaScript framework. It is also known as the V in MVC (Model View Controller), but it has proven to be much larger than that. Once used for internal developments in Facebook org, React JS was extended to Instagram once it was integrated with Facebook. The Facebook team started experimenting with React JS to construct the Website Application of Instagram. After much thought and discussion the Facebook team decided to gift the React Framework as an open source project to the world and nothing has been same ever since.

Vue.js vs. React.js: Comparing Two JavaScript UI Component Libraries

  • At a time where large MVC (model-view-controller) frameworks were cutting edge, two-way data binding was considered a feature, and SSR was mostly used for static webpages, React reversed the trend, focusing on building applications from encapsulated view components, one-way data binding, and using SSR on dynamic web pages via the…
  • Dependency tracking gives Vue’s virtual DOM a slight edge over React out of the box, because it can selectively re-render the child components that are actually affected by a change in state by default — no additional coding required.
  • In React, JSX breaks with the convention of keeping JavaScript and HTML separate, by providing a declarative XML-like syntax that allows you to create self-contained UI components that encapsulate all the instructions required to render them within the view: – – The React code above will render into a simple…
  • Under the React umbrella, we have Flux, the application architecture pattern Facebook developed as a state management solution to avoid issues like the infamous phantom unseen message bug, and Redux, a framework agnostic library for providing a simplified implementation of the Flux pattern, which replaces MVC (model-view-controller).
  • Both Vue and React are cutting edge UI component libraries that make use of a virtual DOM, embrace the components based future of web development, support SSR, and Universal JavaScript.

In this article, we’ll explore some of the key differences between the React.js and Vue.js JavaScript libraries, and learn which might be the best fit for your next web project.

So you want to learn React.js? – EdgeCoders

So you want to learn React.js?

☞ 

#javascript #ReactJS

  • This is a good thing, React is a library that does one thing really well, but it’s not the answer to everything.However, identify whether what you’re currently learning is React or not, mainly so that you don’t get confused about your effort to learn React itself.
  • This is not counting the tools and other libraries that complete React like for example, Redux or Relay.There is an important question about the order with which you need to learn things.
  • I like to be specific about this here, so if you don’t know how to map or reduce an array, or if you don’t understand the concept of closures and callbacks, or if seeing “this” in JavaScript code confuses you, you’re not ready for React and you still have a…
  • Imports and exports of modules (most important of all)You don’t have to start with ES2015, but you do need to eventually learn it (and not because you’re learning React).
  • Don’t start here until you’re very comfortable with React itself.

First, make peace with the fact that you need to learn more than just React to work with React. This is a good thing, React is a library that does one thing really well, but it’s not the answer to…
