  • As you read through these guides, you can get an idea for how code is written at the respective companies.Why do we need style guides?For one main reason: Everyone writes code differently.
  • That’s all fine and dandy as long as we each work on our code.
  • But what happens when you have 10, 100, or even 1,000 developers all working on the same codebase?
  • Style guides are created so new developers can get up to speed on a code base quickly, and then write code that other developers can understand quickly and easily!

Whether you’re just starting to learn JavaScript, or getting ready for your big interview with AirBnB, here are 5 style guides that can help you write cleaner code. A style guide is a set of…

Norbert de Langen: Storybook has reached outside the React ecosystem & will continue to do so

Read our interview with @NorbertdeLangen about his recent work on Storybook:  #ReactJS

  • We strongly believe the problems Storybook solves are not unique to any single platform.Of course, we’re also going to be improving the features and performance of Storybook, and create new ways for you to extend Storybook and customise it for your use-case.
  • Finally: we’re really seeing the community getting involved with Storybook, we get pull requests making Storybook better in all sorts of ways we didn’t expect.
  • So who knows what will be included in the next release?Has rebranding from React Storybook changed its culture or direction?The culture certainly changed — now the community itself is driving Storybook forward.
  • If anything, I’d say our focus on helping the community co-maintain Storybook has had a major impact.Do your company clients adapt React style guides to their workflow?Yes in fact, most of them do.What do you think is the future of web and mobile development?Who knows?
  • I’m super excited about native support for ES modules in the modern browsers and Node.js!What are your favorite components, libraries, or community projects?Babel, Webpack, React, Glamorous, Yarn, Express, ESlint, Prettier, Jest, GraphQL.I’m also a huge fan of community-driven meetups.Pick one and tell us why: Redux or MobX?It depends.

Today, we’re opening our new series of interviews for React Day Berlin. Since Norbert de Langen is going to speak about building Storybook in Berlin in December, we decided to ask him a couple of…

  • It was truly international, with all talks delivered in English (something unusual in Spain) and 250 attendees from 25+ countries.The most impressive is that it was arranged by 2 Spanish expats who form the company Limenius, based in Munich.
  • They managed to prove that it’s possible to arrange a good conference in a well-communicated location like Alicante, with good weather and interesting attractions, while making it affordable (the regular tickets for the talks were 99€).
  • Other topics were forms, CSS in JS, Redux/Mobx, code splitting, GraphQL, and React Native.They covered pretty well the current ecosystem of tools when working with React, and they shared learnings that can be applied to our daily jobs.If you are interested in the specifics of the talks, check this list…
