React Components Explained – codeburst

  • Something like thisimport React from ‘react’;class MyComponent extends React.Component { render () { return div This is a component /div }}class MyOtherComponent extends React.Component { render () { return ( div MyComponent / /div ) }}This way you are able to compose more complex and useful user interface for your…
  • Component’s render method return JSX which then use to create real HTML output which will be rendered in the browser.The interesting Thing about render method is that it runs every time when your component State or Props updates.
  • Let me show you a exampleimport React from ‘react’;class MyComponent extends React.Component { constructor(props) { super(props); this.state = { name: “Manoj” }; } render () { return div My name is {this.state.name} /div }}// if we render this component the output will beMy name is ManojIgnore the super(props) (out of…

  • One of the questions many React beginners ask: “What’s the React way to fetch data from the server” or “How should I make AJAX calls in React”?
  • So, in this article I will try to answer this basic question and list down 5 simple libraries for making AJAX calls in React.
  • In the former, official React tutorial, they use jQuery to fetch data from the server.
  • Here is how a simple API call is made, with jQuery: – – P.S. Snippet is from React’s former official tutorial.
  • However, jQuery is a big library with many functionalities – So, it doesn’t make sense to use it just for making API calls (Unless you are already using it for a bunch of other tasks).

I have been working with React for the last two years. One of the questions many React beginners ask: "What’s the React way to fetch data from the ser.

A large part of a software developer’s time is spent searching the internet for answers to a never-ending stream of questions. Often, the answers we find are on blogs written by people who’ve been there, and found a solution. Isn’t it time you paid it forward?
Gatsby.js is a static site generator for React with a plugin ecosystem that makes it super easy to publish.
In this course, you’ll build a Gatsby site that transforms Markdown documents from your local filesystem into HTML. From there, you’ll use GraphQL to query posts for displaying on an index page, link between posts, and group posts by tags. After your site has been compiled, you’ll see how to deploy it via Github Pages.

Why We Use Styled Components – Hacker Noon

Why We Use Styled Components:  by @_alanbsmith #JavaScript #ReactJS

  • That’s not what CSS-in-JS is about regardless of the hype.Styled Components Isn’t the Right Choice for Every TeamI’m not saying Styled Components is better than Radium, Aphrodite, Glamor, Glamorous, Emotion, or any of the other CSS-in-JS libraries.
  • BEM, SMACSS, and other CSS patterns provide a lot of great guidelines for managing styles.
  • 🎉)From my experience, building a component library is the best way to keep UI consistent and predictable across applications, and CSS-in-JS has been the best tooling available to build these libs.Why We Chose Styled ComponentsWe ❤️ Styled ComponentsWe were drawn to CSS-in-JS for the reasons mentioned above, but Styled Components…
  • Along with the basic Sass support, there’s also Polished, a small toolset created by Styled Components to provide additional Sass functionality and other helpful tooling.Native Mobile SupportOur team is also in the process of developing a native mobile app with React Native.
  • Those conversations will help establish patterns for best-practices leading us to more consistent and predictable UI.Final ThoughtsStyled Components has been great for our team, and I think it could be really useful for a lot of other teams as well.

Unfortunately Twitter is not ideal for providing context and longer explanation, and I thought this might be a good way to follow up. Given that, a lot of this article describes what led to our…

The Pros and Cons of ReactJS for your Online Business

The Pros and Cons of ReactJS for your #OnlineBusiness via @janlgordon

  • With React, it is possible for webmasters and online business owners to develop large web-based applications that change data while reloading pages.
  • Webmasters can also use React together with other forms of frameworks or JavaScript libraries like Angular in MVC.
  • It makes it possible to reuse components that didn’t produce changes, and this makes programming more comfortable and precise for online business owners.
  • The great news for webmasters is that Google might still find the React component when just the client-side is rendered.
  • ReactJS is a great framework for online business.

This isn’t quite a ReactJS guide for the layman. But it is a useful for business owners, if only to glean enough to know how to talk with your techie

Vue vs React: Battle of the Javascript Frameworks

  • I’ve created two nearly identical sample applications, one in Vue and one in React, if you’d like to give either framework a shot in the context of the samples in this article.
  • The biggest difference is that React popularized a Virtual DOM (we’ll get into this later) and created a new syntax called JSX that allows developers to write HTML in JavaScript.
  • Unlike earlier JavaScript frameworks that had ‘batteries included,’ both React and Vue are fairly barebones with functionality like routing and state management handled by separate frameworks.
  • Both React and Vue are focused solely on the UI layer, and leave functionality such as routing and state handling to companion frameworks.
  • In Vue there’s no need to call a state management function like , as the data parameter on the Vue object acts as the holder for application data.

React vs Vue.js. Are you in the market for a shiny new JavaScript UI framework? Find out the main similarities & differences between these two popular ones.
