- The latest release of ReactJS which is React 16 ships with a lot of features such as , , , and many others.
- A sneak peek into new features coming to React was demoed by the creator of Redux and React core team member, Dan Abramov at JSConf Iceland, 2018.
- Making it easier for developers to build great user experiences using ReactJS has always been the goal of the ReactJS team.
- Time-slicing allows ReactJS, which now runs on React Fiber, to split computations of updates on children components into chunks during idle callbacks and rendering work is spread out over multiple frames.
Time Slicing, Suspense and the Fetcher API are new features and concepts that will land soonest in stable releases of ReactJS. Learn how they work.

- But in the end, when implementing a larger application, you need a couple of more libraries to have a sophisticated web application with React as its core.
- The following article will give you an opinionated approach to select from these libraries to build a sophisticated React application.
- The library is for many people almost mandatory in applications when it comes to conditional stylings in React.
- Basically a fetch looks like the following, for instance in a React lifecycle method when a component mounts: – – Basically you wouldn’t have to add any other library to do the job.
Often it is difficult to find all the relevant libraries to complement your React application, because React’s ecosystem is a flexible yet large framework. The article gives you an opinionated React setup by choosing essential libraries: Redux, MobX, React Router, Flow, Styled Components, Lodash, Ramda, Prettier, Axios, …

- This is a good thing, React is a library that does one thing really well, but itâs not the answer to everything.However, identify whether what youâre currently learning is React or not, mainly so that you donât 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.
- Imports and exports of modules (most important of all)You donât have to start with ES2015, but you do need to eventually learn it (and not because youâre learning React).
- Donât start here until youâre 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…

- There are times when the initial blank html page being download for a React application is not perfect.
- So, if you want to maximize traffic to your React application using SEO Server-side rendering is a must have.
- With a Server-side rendering style application, the initial HTML page already contains all, or most, of the markup so it can be displayed much faster.
- There are several approaches to doing Server-side rendering with a React application generated using Create React App (CRA).
There are times when the initial blank html page being download for a React application is not perfect. One reason might be Search Engine Optimization, another might be a slower initial render, especially on mobile devices.

- Today we are going to learn how to create a simple augmented reality experience using a library called A-Frame and React.
- We are going to take what I learned from that and create a relatively simple application that takes an equirectangle image and use it as our back drop for the beginnings of a virtual experience.
- A-Frame is a web framework used to build virtual reality experiences built on top of technologies like three.js and the WebVR API The Mozilla VR Team developed it as a fully open project.
- We now need to import A-Frame into our React component and then add our first tag, the scene.
- Update the render function of your component by adding some entities: – – A-Frame gives you access to a lot of primitive entities out of the box so we can add a sphere by just using the tag.
Editor’s Note: We are excited to have a guest blogger on our blog for this article! Jordan Papeleo is a technologist, programmer, and code mentor who has deep passions about growing developers, his community, his faith, and his mustache.

- It was okay to use objects to update state in earlier versions of React, and we could do the same with Fiber, but by using functions instead we would be complementing the efficiency of fiber for our state updates: – – This is due to the new asynchronous rendering.
- The following will be invalid in React 15 – – to get it to work we have to wrap it in a div and that div will get rendered to the DOM, as well as: – – Each of the components will resolve into their full DOM breakdown, and perhaps…
- We could overlook the performance cost of redundant element wrappers in the DOM but as we have learned from Grace Hopper, every little optimization matters – – This is why it is great that we can gain back some performance with this in React 16.
- You could have an element with attributes like this: – – This opens room for one of the things that Vue has had as an edge over React — the ability to break SVG into components as briefly mentioned in the vue data visualization article and also better compatibility with…
- You see something similar with the layout of templating engines but let us look at how React handles this within a component’s render method declaratively: – – given that we have our app HTML as – – For an applicable example, check here – – The stack was the predecessor…

- With an attendance of over 250 and a wide range of the latest and greatest from the React world, React Alicante delivered some interesting topics ranging from React Native all the way to GraphQL.
- While I really do see the value in documenting your React components for large scale projects I can also see its value being diminished somewhat for smaller scale projects as the time spent building a system of UI documentation with Storybook while also having to write tests specifically for that…
- Possibly one the most interesting talks at the conference was by Nikolas Burk, His talk (Building a realtime chat app with GraphQL) was extremely engaging.
- A talk by Erik Rasmussen labelled A practical guide to Redux Form was very interesting and made me rethink my current system of form validation using React and Redux.
- Erik is the creator of Redux Form and he outlined how this library provides an easier way to manage the various state changes of a dynamic form.
Last weekend I attended React Alicante. Its the first of its type set in Spain’s southeastern Costa Blanca. It delivered some interesting topics ranging from
