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.

  • To be honest, I was also less experienced in Scala than I am today, and wrote code in a way that sometimes defied readability and easy comprehension when in a team: implicits everywhere, symbols and abbreviations all over the place (Haskell influence), etc.
  • This allows any kind of component (JS, Clojure, ES6 classes, some custom super-simple Scala wizard) to be used and integrate with the library.
  • Many library features now work with and provide functionality to all kinds of components.
  • Included in the library are four types: – It’s now a one-liner to use community components written in pure JS.
  • Using another language or Scala-based library from : either grab the pure JS values and call a few methods to add any required transformations, or create your own representations by extending the generic traits in the library.

  • 2. Created a dispatcher method This is the only way to change the state of the application.
  • State is read-only The only way to mutate the state is to emit an action , an object describing what happened.
  • Dispatcher is called along with the action type which indicates how the state has to be changed.
  • We can now use any rendering logic to create a UI based on the state of the application and if any user actions needs to change the state, it has to go through dispatcher.
  • 4. Created a method to subscribe for the state change This method is used when an app needs to listen to the changes happening to the state.
