React Digest #122 for November 20, 2017

  • How Redux Can Make You a Better Developer When React came out I was really amazed with its easiness of use and learning curve.
  • When I first started learning React I wasn’t aware of the fact that React is just a library and not a fully fledged framework.
  • Other frameworks would give you solutions and architecture out of the box which is not the case with React lib.
  • Getting from Redux to a state machine This article is about Stent – a Redux-liked library that creates and manages state machines.
  • In this post we’ll break down the “Redirects (Auth)” example on the React Router documentation to learn how to create authenticated routes (routes that only certain users can access based on their authentication status) using React Router.

When React came out I was really amazed with its easiness of use and learning curve. When I first started learning React I wasn’t aware of the fact that React is just a library and not a fully fledged framework. I wasn’t aware that I would need to make all decisions about architecture and what exactly I would need to use in order to solve some common tasks. Other frameworks would give you solutions and architecture out of the box which is not the case with React lib. Yes, someone might say that I was naive and dumb but that naivety and my will to learn new things pushed me forward and made me a better developer and decision maker.

From native to React Native

  • After developing mobile applications for more than eight months, I had the opportunity of joining a project that was being developed using React Native, an open source JavaScript library that, according to its documentation, lets you build mobile apps using only JavaScript.
  • React Native it’s a very new technology announced on the beginning of 2015 – just a couple years ago – where the main objective is to allow the development of mobile apps using the same design as React, letting you compose a rich mobile UI from declarative components.
  • There were a lot of things that I enjoyed about developing a React Native app, like the flexibility that you can get out of JavaScript after get used on how it works and the core concepts of React.
  • I had a really great time working with React Native and after developing the base components I felt that creating new screens was even faster than coding on native languages.
  • Another great factor that makes it easy to develop apps using React Native is the fact that the JavaScript community is huge, this means lots and lots of knowledge shared on Stack Overflow.

React Native main objective is to allow the development of mobile apps using the same design as React.
