Introducing Rekit Studio: a real IDE for React and Redux development

#reactjs , with #Redux to #code there is now this:

  • As an IDE, besides code editing, Rekit Studio provides the capability for code generation, dependency diagraming, refactoring, building, unit tests, and a meaningful way to navigate code.You will no longer care about how to setup the project, config webpack, or organize your folder structure.
  • That’s what makes Rekit Studio different from other code editors like Sublime Text and VS Code.See the quick demoBefore the introduction, you may want to see a quick demo video about how to use Rekit Studio to manage Redux actions.From the video, we can see that all we care about is…
  • Then the project explorer can show the project structure in a meaningful way, like this:Project ExplorerRekit Studio knows the features of those project elements, like which actions are asynchronous (with blue mark “A”), which components connect to the Redux store (with green mark “C”), and which components are managed by…
  • This caused our project to become hard to maintain in a short time.Now with Rekit Studio, you can right click a component or action to move, and rename or delete it just like you do with other IDEs like Eclipse for Java or Visual Studio for .Net.
  • If you want to create some new elements like selectors, or you want to alter the default code boilerplate (like using `redux-saga` instead of `redux-thunk` for async actions), you can create plugins to do it.See more about the plugin system here.Command line interfaceBesides Rekit Studio, there is another command line…

How to Build a Todo App Using React, Redux, and Immutable.js — SitePoint

  • This helps us get a feel for what we’re going to need our components to render:
    const dummyTodos = [
    { id: 0, isDone: true, text: ‘make components’ },
    { id: 1, isDone: false, text: ‘design actions’ },
    { id: 2, isDone: false, text: ‘implement reducer’ },
    { id: 3, isDone: false, text: ‘connect components’ }
    ];

    For this application, we’re only going to need two React components, Todo / and TodoList /.

  • js

    import React from ‘react’;

    export function Todo(props) {
    const { todo } = props;
    if(todo.isDone) {
    return strike{todo.text}/strike;
    } else {
    return span{todo.text}/span;
    }
    }

    export function TodoList(props) {
    const { todos } = props;
    return (
    div className=’todo’
    input type=’text’ placeholder=’Add todo’ /
    ul className=’todo__list’
    {todos.map(t = (
    li key={t.id} className=’todo__item’
    Todo todo={t} /
    /li
    ))}
    /ul
    /div
    );
    }

    At this point, we can test these components by creating an index.html file in the project folder and populating it with the following markup.

  • /components’;

    const dummyTodos = [
    { id: 0, isDone: true, text: ‘make components’ },
    { id: 1, isDone: false, text: ‘design actions’ },
    { id: 2, isDone: false, text: ‘implement reducer’ },
    { id: 3, isDone: false, text: ‘connect components’ }
    ];

    render(
    TodoList todos={dummyTodos} /,
    the code with npm run build, then navigate your browser to the index.html file and make sure that it’s working.

  • Our dummy data is a great place to start from, and we can easily translate it into ImmutableJS collections:
    import { List, Map } from ‘immutable’;

    const dummyTodos = List([
    Map({ id: 0, isDone: true, text: ‘make components’ }),
    Map({ id: 1, isDone: false, text: ‘design actions’ }),
    Map({ id: 2, isDone: false, text: ‘implement reducer’ }),
    Map({ id: 3, isDone: false, text: ‘connect components’ })
    ]);

    ImmutableJS maps don’t work in the same way as JavaScript’s objects, so we’ll need to make some slight tweaks to our components.

  • The mapStateToProps function takes the store’s current state as an argument (in our case, a list of todos), then it expects the return value to be an object that describes a mapping from that state to props for our wrapped component:
    function mapStateToProps(state) {
    return { todos: state };
    }

    It might help to visualize this on an instance of the wrapped React component:
    TodoList todos={state} /

    We’ll also need to supply a mapDispatchToProps function, which is passed the store’s dispatch method, so that we can use it to dispatch the actions from our action creators:
    function mapDispatchToProps(dispatch) {
    return {
    addTodo: text = dispatch(addTodo(text)),
    toggleTodo: id

  • Typically you will store your translation data in json files, but the data can also be a vanilla JS object.
  • Once your translation data is in the correct format use the addTranslation action creator.
  • A selector that takes your redux and returns the raw translation data.
  • Redux action creator to set which languages you are supporting in your translations.
  • Redux action creator to add new translation data to your redux store.

Why not to store objects in Redux – Collaborne Engineering – Medium

Why not to store objects in Redux  #redux #webdevelopment #react #javascript #tech #reactjs

  • For example, this wrapper class enables direct access to the primary email address of a user:class UserWrapper { /** Copy all backend data into the wrapper object */ { Object.keys(data).
  • Now, we convert the objects directly when storing them into Redux, e.g.:/** Reducer to store one user in Redux */const user = (user = {}, action) = { switch (action.type) { case ‘USER/SET’: const emails = action.user.emails; return { primaryEmail: emails.length 0 ?
  • With that, Redux contains only what is really used by the frontend.Benefit 2: Less state changesOur wrappers had to be replaced whenever a property changed, e.g.:/** Reducer to store one user in Redux */const user = (user = {}, action) = { switch (action.type) { case ‘USER/UPDATE_EMAIL’: return new UserWrapper(Object.assign({}, user, { emails, });…This would trigger a state change for the complete user object — although e.g. only the emails property was changed.
  • As a consequence, we had to check ourselves which of the user’s properties really changed.With plain objects, we can now fully leverage the immutability of the Redux store.
  • Since we store plain objects in Redux: no more second guessing what the wrapper will do based on the underlying data!

The Redux documentation advises to store only plain objects in Redux. But when we adopted Redux, our existing codebase relied heavily on classes that provided a view over the data delivered by our…

Firekit concepts to sync Firebase and redux – Tarik Huber – Medium

Firekit concepts to sync Firebase and redux  #react #firebase #javascript #redux #reactjs

  • That is one of the main concepts firekit uses to manage the sync of the firebase realtime database and the redux store.
  • Firekit allows you to make your firebase reference with all the native firebase query and filtering functions and just send the resulting reference to firekit and it will listen to all changes and sync them to the redux store.Saving only simple jsonIf using instances of classes in your library you get into the situation to save to the redux store complicated objects and functions.
  • By saving only simple json in your redux store persistence can be done however you want and with every tool and concept you wish.Persistent listenersThe main reason I choose to create firekit is that all other libraries link the whole listening cycle to a single component.
  • You can leave the listening cycle in a component, page, application or any other level you want.This approach is the same no matter if you are listening to lists or simple paths in the firebase realtime database.ConclusionFirebase is made to make our developer lives easier.
  • The main goals are to give the user maximal flexibility for using firebase and just providing easy and simple tools to sync data to the redux store.I you are interested on how the library works or want to try a real world project visit the github repo with the source code or the demo page.If you like how this library works you could put a star on the github repo đ

Firekit is a library that helps you sync your Firebase realtime database with the redux store of your react application. It uses some new approaches witch we will try to present in this article. If…

The essential boilerplate to authenticate users on your React-Native app

The essential boilerplate to authenticate users on your #ReactJS Native app:

  • The store.js imports the reducers and creates the Redux store.
  • Revoke the user tokens and transition the user to the Welcome scene.
  • The essential boilerplate to authenticate users on your React-Native app
  • If the access token is properly refreshed, the splash screen is removed and the user gets transitioned directly to the Users scene.
  • POST /users : Create a new user

It’s essential to many apps, and I myself have been wondering how I could provide a secure way for my users to register and authenticate to my apps without third-party strategies. Finding working…

Testing Common Redux Patterns in React Using AVA

Testing common #Redux patterns in #ReactJS using AVA:

  • Let’s configure the Redux store using our root reducer.
  • As the second argument, we are passing the action which toggles the state of the todo with the given id .
  • When dispatched, the action will cause a todo item of a given id to switch its state, for instance from completed to not completed.
  • /actions’ ; const store = configureStore ({ todos : [ { id : 0 , completed : false , text : ‘buy milk’ }, { id : 1 , completed : false , text : ‘walk the dog’ }, { id : 2 , completed : false , text : ‘study’ } ] }); store .
  • Reducers react to dispatched actions by modifying the store.

This is the second tutorial in our series on testing React and Redux applications.
If you haven’t read the first part, we encourage you to do so.

A Finite State Machine Helper for Redux

  • An example of a finite state machine and how to implement it with redux-machine
  • redux-machine makes the current status explicit and keeps your state in the redux store.
  • I’ve noticed that Redux apps often embed ad-hoc finite state machines , with information about the current status spread out throughout reducers .
  • When the status is `IN_PROGRESS` and the action type is `FETCH_USERS_RESPONSE` or `FETCH_USERS_FAIL`, the machine transitions to the `INIT` (initial) status.
  • It stores the current status in the store with the STATUS key.
