Why’s React Native so promising?

Why is #ReactNative so promising? Read Valentin's blog post to find out!

  • React Native looks a lot like React: roughly the same syntax, classes, JSX, state, props… but React Native is a framework, which means you have more features than just rendering in React Native.
  • To do that, the Facebook team created a bunch of APIs to interact with the camera, the keyboard, the vibrations… – – One of the big advantages of using React Native is that, while the core app runs in a JavaScript Engine, it uses JSX to render native code.
  • You use classes, ES6, states and the like, with a few notable differences: – – Not much to say here except that Redux, the React developers’ favourite state management library, also works with React Native with absolutely no difference in the way you’ll dev.
  • Here’s an example of a small Menu component: – – This article is not about HOCs; just know they allow a greater flexibility around the way you compose your components and you can use them in React Native.
  • With React Native you can compose your styles and properties, combine them and then have them applied onto your component.

Learning React.js: Getting Started and Concepts ― Scotch

  • — React Code Goes Here — – – /script – /body – /html – In React, components mount to an element, so in this example we can use the div myDiv as it’s parent container.
  • These attributes are available in our component as this.props and can be used in our render method to render dynamic data: – var MyComponent = React.createClass({ – render: function(){ – return ( – h1Hello, {this.props.name}!
  • Below, see how we can set our component’s state: – var MyComponent = React.createClass({ – getInitialState: function(){ – return { – count: 5 – } – }, – render: function(){ – return ( – h1{this.state.count}/h1 – ) – } – }); – – Events – React also has a built…
  • Lets make our count increment below using events: – /** @jsx React.DOM */ – – var Counter = React.createClass({ – incrementCount: function(){ – this.setState({ – count: this.state.count + 1 – }); – }, – getInitialState: function(){ – return { – count: 0 – } – }, – render: function(){ -…
  • == -1; – }); – this.setState({items: updatedList}); – }, – getInitialState: function(){ – return { – initialItems: [ – “Apples”, – “Broccoli”, – “Chicken”, – “Duck”, – “Eggs”, – “Fish”, – “Granola”, – “Hash Browns” – ], – items: [] – } – }, – componentWillMount: function(){ – this.setState({items: this.state.initialItems})…

Today we are going to kick off the first installment in a new series of tutorials, Learning React, that will focus on becoming proficient and effective with Facebook’s React library. Before we start building anything meaningful, its important that we cover some base concepts first, so lets get this party started.

A brief overview about React Native – Cristiano de Araujo – Medium

A brief overview about React Native  #reactnative #react #reactjs #reactjs

  • We can build cross platform apps such as Android and IOS.React Native comes with the idea to code once and deploy everywhere so you don’t need to work twice to have your app running in different platforms.With React Native we can have almost all React library concepts including components, state, life-cycles methods and so on.
  • All of them is classified as hybrid frameworks and runs inside a WebView but a React Native app are not a hybrid app because it do not run in a WebView.
  • For this reason React Native apps are faster than hybrid apps and offer a better user experience.What is the advantages?The first and maybe one of the best advantages is the cross platform development capability.
  • That’s great specially when you’re working in a startup that have a small team of developers that constantly deal with the aggressive market competition.With React Native you just need to have a good JavaScript knowledge to go ahead with the basics concepts and understand well how to build a real mobile app.
  • In addition to reducing the number of people responsible for one application, it is really very easy to code and get fast results because we don’t need to recompile the code every time we make a change!The other great advantage is that React Native is open source, so we don’t need to pay to use the framework and we also can submit pull requests to the core repository.How can I be more productive using it?You may heard somewhere that a good practice for a programmer is to reuse code.

This article is for you who have heard about this technology, but do not feel totally safe or/and do not have much time to get to know it.
So let’s get start with some questions. It is a framework…

  • To create a nested route (like /home/homey ), simply nest the component inside of the component within and your route will be created .
  • Container gives you the container component with all the application state.
  • The function call returns the current state object.
  • Desklamp allows you to keep your state in a single state object.
  • // Child components become your routable urls

Building React App With Flux Architecture And Baobab

Building #ReactJS app with Flux architecture & Baobab:

  • React makes re-rendering absolutely painless, because you don’t have to mutate DOM manually.
  • If you look into components/App you can see that its render() function is just a ‘RouteHandler’ component which is substituted by the current match route handler.
  • 3) Unnecessary component re-renders even when the state of component didn’t change.
  • List component renders a couple of ListElement components, let’s go deeper a look at the ListElement component.
  • The mixin listens to the changes on StateTree and re-renders the App component on each tree update.
