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…

  • We strongly recommend to use Node >= 6 and npm >= 5 for faster installation speed and better disk usage.
  • Your project needs to use React 15.5 or later.
  • If you use older version of React, please refer to the table below to find suitable React-PDF version.
  • Add React-PDF to your project by executing .
  • This project wouldn’t be possible without awesome work of Niklas Närhinen niklas@narhinen.net who created its initial version and without Mozilla, author of pdf.js.

React and React Native [Book]

Adam Boduch's

  • Use React and React Native to build applications for desktop browsers, mobile browsers, and even as native mobile apps

    Who This Book Is For

    This book is written for any JavaScript developer—beginner or expert—who wants to start learning how to put both of Facebook’s UI libraries to work.

  • What You Will Learn

    React and React Native allow you to build cross-platform desktop and mobile applications using Facebook’s innovative UI libraries.

  • The first part shows you how to start crafting composable UIs using React, from rendering with JSX and creating reusable components through to routing and creating isomorphic applications that run on Node.
  • We then move on to showing you how to take the concepts of React and apply them to building Native UIs using React Native.
  • Split into three major sections to help organize your learning, this hands-on, code-first book will help you get up to speed with React and React Native—the UI framework that powers Netflix, Yahoo, and Facebook.

Use React and React Native to build applications for desktop browsers, mobile browsers, and even as native mobile apps About This Book Build React and React Native applications using familiar … – Selection from React and React Native [Book]

Building a new backend — Part 1 – lookapanda – Medium

Building a new backend — Part 1  #discord #webdevelopment #react #javascript #node #reactjs

  • Building a new backend — Part 1In this story I’d like to document my experiences in building a new backend.It represents my personal experiences and is not related to my profession as a Software Engineer.What is the backend for?This is a legitimate question, of course.
  • There is no real goal yet, I see it more like a personal challenge and practice.Some of my first pieces of code using LaravelI already built a backend quite some time ago already written in PHP using Laravel.
  • Times change quickly in a developers world and today I’m mostly programming in JavaScript (ES6, Node, etc.) and not that much in PHP anymore.Today (2017) I want to create something new again using the most modern technologies I can find.
  • REST APIs access information after all and said information needs to be stored somewhere.With my PHP API I was using MySQL (or actually MariaDB) and with my Node API it was MongoDB.
  • It should be easy to use but also powerful.In my next blog post I will share my first experiences in using Cassandra for building the database and probably also my decission for the framework I’ll be using.If you’ve come so far to read this very line, I want to say thank you.

  • 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.
  • I find building simple games to demonstrate the ideas of React much better than starting with data-driven serious web applications.
  • React ecosystem libraries: Since React is just the UI language, you’ll need tools to complete the picture and go beyond even MVC. Don’t start until you’re very comfortable with React itself.
  • Right after getting comfortable with the raw concepts of React itself, build a React Native app.
  • I’ll give you two things to focus on, just forget everything else you encounter and learn these two first once you’re done with React itself: react-router and redux.

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…
