  • Among the changes are some long-standing feature requests, including fragments, error boundaries, portals, support for custom DOM attributes, improved server-side rendering, and reduced file size.
  • Think of error boundaries like try-catch statements, but for React components.
  • According to Sasha’s synthetic benchmarks, server rendering in React 16 is roughly three times faster than React 15.
  • “When comparing against React 15 with compiled out, there’s about a 2.4x improvement in Node 4, about a 3x performance improvement in Node 6, and a full 3.8x improvement in the new Node 8.4 release.
  • Fiber is responsible for most of the new features in React 16, like error boundaries and fragments.

We’re excited to announce the release of React v16.0! Among the changes are some long-standing feature requests, including fragments, error boundaries, portals, support for custom DOM attributes, improved server-side rendering, and reduced file size.

React Alicante 2017 #ReactAlicante #React.js #JavaScript

React Alicante 2017 #ReactAlicante #React.js #JavaScript

  • 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

8 things to learn in React before using Redux

8 things to learn in #ReactJS before using #Redux:

  • A component can manage a whole lot of state, pass it down as props to its child components and pass a couple of functions along the way to enable child components to alter the state in the parent component again.
  • Component A is the only component that manages local state but passes it down to its child components as props.
  • In addition, it passes down the necessary functions to enable B and C to alter its own state in A.

    Now, half of the local state of component A is consumed as props by component C but not by component B.

  • When you lift the local state management down to component C, all the necessary props don’t need to traverse down the whole component tree.
  • When a library such as Redux “connects” its state managements layer with React’s view layer, you will often run into a higher order component that takes care of it (connect HOC in react-redux).

Facts about React that should be known before using Redux (or MobX). Most important: Learn React first, then opt-in Redux…
