- But in the end, when implementing a larger application, you need a couple of more libraries to have a sophisticated web application with React as its core.
- The following article will give you an opinionated approach to select from these libraries to build a sophisticated React application.
- The library is for many people almost mandatory in applications when it comes to conditional stylings in React.
- Basically a fetch looks like the following, for instance in a React lifecycle method when a component mounts: – – Basically you wouldn’t have to add any other library to do the job.
Often it is difficult to find all the relevant libraries to complement your React application, because React’s ecosystem is a flexible yet large framework. The article gives you an opinionated React setup by choosing essential libraries: Redux, MobX, React Router, Flow, Styled Components, Lodash, Ramda, Prettier, Axios, …

- Using the Flow server For a large project, you probably only want Flow to recheck files incrementally when they change.
- To get started, we first need to make sure we either have flow set up in our project at node_modules/bin/flow (as we have already done above) or installed globally.
- To stop the server, we can run node_modules/.bin/flow stop to stop the server.
- In our project, we start the server by running node_modules/.bin/flow , which we’ve saved as an npm script npm run flow .

- So looking at how the repos component is being used, you’ll notice we’re passing in username and we’re passing in a repo .
- Now you’ll notice we get this warning, “Failed propType required username was not specified in repos .”
- We don’t have to have it required, but as we talked about earlier when we use repos, we basically need a username and a repos array for this, so let’s go ahead and now when we render our repos component, let’s go ahead and take out username and let’s see what happens.
- If we come in and we just render the notes component list this,
- So everything is working correctly, but now what we’ve done is we’ve made the userProfile , the repos , and the notes component all validate that they’re being used correctly .
In this video, we’ll add PropTypes to some of our existing components to ensure that each component gets the data it needs to function properly.
