Codecademy Launches Free ReactJS Courses #wordpress #wp #themes

  • Codecademy Launches Free ReactJS Courses
  • Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.

  • The courses already have more than 100,000 students enrolled and are likely to become popular additions to Codecademy’s catalog, as React’s popularity is currently soaring past all other front-end frameworks.

Codecademy, the free interactive coding education site, has launched a new ReactJS course. For the past five years, the site’s free, self-guided courses have attracted more than 25 million students. Codecademy recently partnered with the White House as part of the TechHire initiative to promote more diverse entrepreneurship in the tech industry through coding education.

React D3 Library

A #JavaScript library that allows developers the ability to use D3 in #ReactJS.

  • We need to create a div element for D3 to build upon before converting it to a React component, var div = document.createElement(‘div’); and this div is what we will have D3 select.
  • A library that will allow developers the ability to reroute D3’s output to React’s virtual DOM. React-D3-Library will compile your code into React components, and it also comes with a series of D3 template charts converted to React components for developers who are unfamiliar with D3.
  • Not only do we build fully functional React components, but they utilize the power of D3 to automate scaling ranges, normalizing data, and constructing legends.
  • Use the componentDidMount() React lifecycle method to make the state aware of your new D3 div .
  • import React from ‘react’ ; import rd3 from ‘react-d3-library’ ;

All of your D3 will now be compiled into React Elements which allows the ability to use React’s diffing algorithm for full optimization

React Higher Order Components in depth — Medium

  • Props Proxy: The HOC manipulates the props being passed to the WrappedComponent W ,
  • We also pass through the props that the HOC receives the name Props Proxy .
  • Parent Components are just React Components that have some children.
  • A Higher Order Component is just a React Component that wraps another one.
  • Parent Components can be used freely in an Elements tree, they are not restricted to once per Component class as HOCs are.
