Why ReactJS Is More in Demand

One of the most in demand technologies right now is #ReactJS



#WebDev #javascript  #WebApp

  • As stated already, the most compelling feature of React is that it reduces the complexities of user interface.
  • If the mechanism that we are trying to interface can comprehend Javascript, we can use React to build the user interface for it.
  • You describe the user interfaces in React languages and tell it what you want, it will take care to translate your description and prepare the actual interface.
  • You will illustrate user interfaces to React with simple components.
  • When state of a component changes, its User Interface will change automatically.

ReactJS is a JavaScript library for building user interfaces. According to Google Trends data last 5 years in increased popularity of ReactJS development and we explain why ReactJS is more in demand.

So you want to learn React.js? – EdgeCoders

So you want to learn React.js?

#Redux #javascript

  • This is a good thing, React is a library that does one thing really well, but it’s not the answer to everything.
  • This is not counting the tools and other libraries that complete React like for example, Redux or Relay.
  • Refreshing your knowledge on JavaScript first would not hurt, specially because you need to learn ES2015, not because React depends on it (it does not), but because it’s a much better language, and most of the examples, courses, and tutorials you’ll find use the modern JavaScript syntax.
  • The recommended tool is Babel.jsReact ecosystem libraries: Since React is just the UI language, you’ll need tools to complete the picture and go beyond even MVC.
  • I’ll give you two things to focus on, just forget everything else you encounter and learn these two first once you’re done with React itself: react-router and redux.Right after getting comfortable with the raw concepts of React itself, build a React Native app.

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…

Top JavaScript Libraries & Tech to Learn in 2018 – JavaScript Scene – Medium

Top #JavaScript Libraries & Tech to Learn in 2018:  by @_ericelliott #ReactJS #Developers

  • There’s plenty of room for Vue.js to pick up a lot of Angular and jQuery users at a fast clip, but they will likely hit a brick wall when they have to start stealing users from React to continue the growth streak.
  • I predict strong Vue.js growth for another year or two, followed by a much harder battle with React in the top spot and Vue.js relegated to second fiddle unless something big changes to upset the balance.
  • Why so Much Interest in React?Browsing through the React job listings, I noticed an interesting trend — a lot of them were for things that we don’t think of as front-end web work: – React Native (for perspective, there are more of these openings than the total number of Vue.js openings)React for IoTReact…
  • Which Topics Should You Study?Like last year, you can’t go wrong focusing on the essentials, but you should place more emphasis on functional programming for React apps.
  • With that in mind, here are some topics you should study: – Basic ES6 syntaxClass syntax and its many pitfalls — It’s OK to use class for React components, but avoid extending from your own classes, avoid instanceof, and avoid forcing users of your classes to use the new keyword.Functional programming software…

Last year, I wrote an article rounding up the top tech to learn in 2017. This year there are some surprises. First, software ate the world, the web ate software, and JavaScript ate the web. In 2018…

A simple React.js on MacOS Setup

  • The node package manager is used to install libraries/frameworks (node packages), such as React, on the command line to your project.
  • That’s why my recommendation would be Visual Studio Code to start developing React applications on MacOS.
  • The installation on a MacOS machine is simple: Navigate to the official Visual Studio Code website and download the recent version of VS Code.
  • That’s your integrated command line in Visual Studio Code to install node packages with NPM or to start/test your project.
  • On the command line (in Visual Studio Code), type the following command to install create-react-app: – – This package allows you to bootstrap React applications with zero-configuration.

A concise step by step guide on how to setup React.js on MacOS. In a few steps, you will install Visual Studio Code, Node.js, NPM, Git, Prettier and create-react-app for building React applications with Mac OS …

The History of React.js on a Timeline

The History of #reactjs on a Timeline

  • Moreover, our excellent front-end expert, Miklos Bertalan has started a series of live streams where he shows how to build React apps on a free, locally hosted server – created by another brilliant engineer at Risingstack, Robert Czinege.
  • I have collected the most significant milestones in the history of React, which you’ll be able to see in this timeline below.
  • 2010 – The first signs of React – – 2012 – Something new had started at Facebook – – 2013 – The year of the Big Launch – – React had gradually gained its reputation and started to go through to ‘early majority’ of its potential users.
  • At this point, they needed a new message instead of solely relying on its technical benefits, and it is: how is React stable?
  • This journey has been fun so far, but there is certainly a lot more to learn about React.

The History of React.js on a timeline: 2010-2018.

Exploring the React Context API with Provider and Consumer

  • It explains how to use React’s new context API for passing props down the component tree.
  • Basically, React’s context API takes the clutter away of passing mandatory props, that are needed by every component, down your whole component tree.
  • Therefore you could use React’s context API to give every component access to the colored theme.
  • As you can imagine, following this way every component that needs to be styled according to the colored theme could get the necessary information from React’s context API by using the Consumer component now.
  • This Provider component uses React’s context API to pass down the state implicitly.

React’s Context API is a powerful feature for passing props down the component tree without the need to tell components in between about them. React’s context creates a Provider and Consumer component that enable us to use this powerful feature …
