A simple React.js on MacOS Setup

  • The node package manager is used to install libraries/frameworks (node packages), such as React, on the command line to your project.
  • That’s why my recommendation would be Visual Studio Code to start developing React applications on MacOS.
  • The installation on a MacOS machine is simple: Navigate to the official Visual Studio Code website and download the recent version of VS Code.
  • That’s your integrated command line in Visual Studio Code to install node packages with NPM or to start/test your project.
  • On the command line (in Visual Studio Code), type the following command to install create-react-app: – – This package allows you to bootstrap React applications with zero-configuration.

A concise step by step guide on how to setup React.js on MacOS. In a few steps, you will install Visual Studio Code, Node.js, NPM, Git, Prettier and create-react-app for building React applications with Mac OS …

How To Open Source Parts Of Your Private Project With Bit

  • Using Bit, you can isolate these sets of files (we call code components) from your project and share them with the open source community, while keeping their source project private and intact.
  • js – │ └── index.js – └── utils – └── noop.jsBefore Bit, we would have to create a new GitHub project for this component, remove hello-world from your private project and make all its dependancies (packages as well as other files from the project) available for the new project.
  • With Bit, you can keep this component as part of your private project and still make it available to the community to discover, use and collaborate on.
  • Open source parts of your project to the communityTo make sure your components are truly executable outside of the project’s context, Bit will build an isolated component environment and apply all configured extensions to test, compile or perform any other defined task.
  • You can also use bit import to bring the component’s source code into other projects, develop them and merge changes between different projects.

How to make parts of your private projects open source and make their components available to the community without having to split your repositories or create new projects on GitHub. Learn more.

Styling in React – codeburst

  • A style rule will have been inlined ğŸ‘� – Before digging into third party CSS in JS, let’s roll back to creating it ourself to understand the core benefits.
  • ğŸ‘� – A major benefit of defining CSS in JS is to be able to conditionally generate styles.
  • You’re also inlining everything 😭 – Third party packages exampleLuckily, there are some great third party packages to aid with handling CSS in JS 😌 – I don’t have experience with them all so I will be using styled-components for these examples.
  • If you’d rather take a quick look at styled-components before going any further, check it out here ğŸ‘� Don’t worry though, I will keep any examples intuitive and simple.
  • But consider that our CSS will have to contain styling for when the nav is open and closed ğŸ‘� – Using styled-components we could create something more along the lines of – That is so much clearer ğŸ˜� Any styling declaration via classNames are extracted and we are left with…

Styling is a huge part of the user experience for your apps. You’ve got a new design and you’re going to build your new awesome app in React. But how do you go about implementing that design? It…

React.js Efficient Server Rendering – Hacker Noon

  • So the flow is almost similar to this one – Client sending request to get some JSX template pageNode.js server getting main file containing JSX codeRendering it to plain HTML codeSending HTML response to clientUsing HTML markup, then client loading also React.js client side code for adding dynamic logic to…
  • I decided to do React.js as a frontend, but they hat a lot of Python stuff on a backend, I couldn’t rewrite all code just for server side rendering.
  • And I got an idea to build standalone Node.js Server only for React.js JSX template rendering and nothing else, so I can make a proxy request to that server and it will render JSX content for me and will response pure HTML back to Python Django Template.
  • What is that?So using basic principle of proxy requests I just made very simple code for Python – import requests – import json – – – PROXY_RENDER_ADDRESS = ‘http://localhost:3000/’ – – – def get_html(filename, props): – try: – props_str = json.dumps(props) – r = + filename – , data=props_str – ,…
  • So the main advantages that I got – No need to integrate Node.js in backend side, or use crappy JS engines in Python, which are eating a lot of memoryAbility to keep JSX template cache, which give huge load time improvementsScale backend services without scaling base rendering service, so you…

For about a year now I’m developing Web Applications based on React.js, and it was amazing for me to write code that actually scales with JSX components, rather than functions, it’s giving more…

nohoist in Workspaces

  • First, let’s take a quick tour on how hoist work in standalone projects: – – To reduce redundancy, most package managers employ some kind of hoisting scheme to extract and flatten all dependent modules, as much as possible, into a centralized location.
  • In such project, modules could be scattered in multiple locations: – – yarn workspaces can share modules across child projects/packages by hoisting them up to their parent project’s node_modules: .
  • Consequently, workspaces developers often witness “module not found” related errors when building from the child project: – – For this monorepo project to reliably find any module from anywhere, it needs to traverse each nodemodules tree: *“monorepo/nodemodules”* and .
  • There are indeed many ways library owners can address these issues, such as multi-root, custom module map, clever traversing scheme, among others… However, – – It is frustrating when a solution worked for a standalone project only fell short in the monorepo environment.
  • Module path is a virtual path of the dependency tree, not an actual file path, so no need to specify “node_modules” or “packages” in the nohoist pattern.

As wonderful as yarn workspaces are, the rest of the community hasn’t yet fully caught up with the monorepo hoisting scheme. The introducing of the nohoist i…

Introducing Rekit Studio: a real IDE for React and Redux development

#reactjs , with #Redux to #code there is now this:

  • As an IDE, besides code editing, Rekit Studio provides the capability for code generation, dependency diagraming, refactoring, building, unit tests, and a meaningful way to navigate code.You will no longer care about how to setup the project, config webpack, or organize your folder structure.
  • That’s what makes Rekit Studio different from other code editors like Sublime Text and VS Code.See the quick demoBefore the introduction, you may want to see a quick demo video about how to use Rekit Studio to manage Redux actions.From the video, we can see that all we care about is…
  • Then the project explorer can show the project structure in a meaningful way, like this:Project ExplorerRekit Studio knows the features of those project elements, like which actions are asynchronous (with blue mark “A”), which components connect to the Redux store (with green mark “C”), and which components are managed by…
  • This caused our project to become hard to maintain in a short time.Now with Rekit Studio, you can right click a component or action to move, and rename or delete it just like you do with other IDEs like Eclipse for Java or Visual Studio for .Net.
  • If you want to create some new elements like selectors, or you want to alter the default code boilerplate (like using `redux-saga` instead of `redux-thunk` for async actions), you can create plugins to do it.See more about the plugin system here.Command line interfaceBesides Rekit Studio, there is another command line…

We’re very excited to announce the stable release of Rekit Studio, a complete IDE for React, Redux and React Router development! Though it’s maybe new to some of you, it has helped us build…
