Render Text within a Server-side ReactJS App with Next.js from @tgrecojs on @eggheadio

  • By default, Next.js will automatically create routes for any files inside of a projects directory.
  • In this lesson, we’ll get a first-hand look at this and see just how quickly Next.js’ built-in router makes the process of getting started.

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…

We’re very excited to announce the stable release of Rekit Studio, a complete IDE for React, Redux and React Router development! Though it’s maybe new to some of you, it has helped us build…

Vue vs React: Battle of the Javascript Frameworks

#Vue vs #React: Battle of the #Javascript Frameworks 
#VueJS #reactjs

  • 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.

React Router v4 – David Kerr – Medium

“React Router v4” by @dkerrious  #reactjs #React #javascript #coding

  • npm install react-router react-router-dom — savePopular patterns for prior versions of React Router have a routes.js file to centrally managing the routing depending on the path, but in my opinion, this is no longer necessary.
  • In my root React component, which I am calling App.js, I can select which specific components to display depending on the path.import React, { Component } from ‘react’;import { BrowserRouter as Router, Route } from ‘react-router-dom’;import Header from “.
  • /components/Footer”;class App extends Component { constructor() { super(); this.state = { stuff: stuff; }; }render() { let { stuff } = this.state; return ( Router //wrapper for your router, given alias from BrowserRouter div className=”App” Header / //this component will always be visible because it is outside of a specific…
  • To do this, you need to use the alternative syntax to link a component to a given route.Route path=”/dashboard” component={()=Dashboard stuff={stuff} /}/As someone who prefers to manage state as close as possible to the root React component, I prefer the second approach.
  • Depending on your specific use case, you might find one more practical than the another.The final basic react-router feature I will point out is the Link method.import { Link } from ‘react-router-dom’;…Link to=”/home”Home/LinkThis replaces a href=””/a whenever you want to navigate within your application.React Router is as complex or as…

As with any new technology, resources and documentation online lack for using the new version of React Router. The goal of this article is to show and explain a basic implementation of React Router…

Step by step guide for writing awesome React components

  • Now imagine the most verbose way to write it.class SlothImage extends React.Component { render() { return img src=’sloth.gif’ alt=’Pretty face’ }}export default SlothImageThis code is completely correct and performant but can it be shorter?
  • This component has no use of lifecycle methods.const SlothImage = props = { return img src=’sloth.gif’ alt=’Pretty face’}export default SlothImageTwo lines have been spared by converting the class component to the functional component.
  • /*The props should now be built like this:{ src: ‘sloth.gif’, alt: ‘Pretty face’,}*/export default props = img {…props}The dots are called a spread operator (❧).
  • My personal taste for writing more complex components is as follows:export default ({ separateNext: underline, rightComponent, onRightComponentClick, …rest: imgProps}) = { return ( Row underline SlothImage {…imgProps} / /Row )}If I could pick one rule in writing React components it would be exceeding the 80 characters mark (❧) in a…
  • The sign of overcomplication is the usage of “enum” like props or having too many props.TextInput required width=’col-6′ height=’xlarge’ bgColor=’#a4a4a4′ type=’primary’ suffix=’dollar’ 1337/TextInputEvery component should have a single responsibility (❧) and a reasonable amount of flexibility.

Going through the process of learning and using React and Redux I came to a following conclusion – they are not hard to grasp but are fairly difficult to master. Both are pretty minimal when it comes…
