  • That’s why, today I’d like to share a number of things that boost my productivity while creating mobile app in React Native.
  • Storybook allows you to create stories in which you prepare pre filled UI elements with data that could possibly show up there during normal app lifetime.
  • Later within a few seconds you can easily go through all stories that you’ve described and see how they look on your device / emulator without the need of going through all of these states in normal app flow which takes much longer time.
  • This is a tiny example of a single story, however if you develop a normal app, you will surely have much more of them which may cover all of possible UI states for your components.
  • If your app grows, it’s easy to guess that tests will not run in a matter of milliseconds, but it’s still normal to have a result of them within 1-3 seconds from the time that you saved your file.

A developer needs tools that support her/his workflow to be fully productive. Well, I guess that this statement fits to any profession that you can think of. It is really important for me to feel that the environment that I’m working in really supports my flow and works well with my approach to software development.

React with TypeScript and MobX

React with TypeScript and MobX  /cc @mweststrate @typescriptlang #reactjs #mobx #javascript

  • Getting started with TypeScript and MobX is made easy and both of the technologies are widely adopted and will be around for quite a few years.
  • It builds on the ECMAScript standard, by adding new features from future specifications as well as features specific to TypeScript.
  • During 2016 the core supporting stack for React has stabilised to be composed of Babel for JavaScript transpilation and Redux for state management.
  • Instead of building your application to browser-compatible ES5 syntax with Babel.
  • MobX is an alternative state management library that builds on the principle that anything that can be derived from the application state, should be automatically derived.

The React ecosystem is huge and there are a number of technologies available. During 2016 the core supporting stack for React has stabilised to be composed of Babel for JavaScript transpilation and Redux for state management.
