Sneak Peek: Beyond React 16

Sneak Peek: Beyond #React 16 - React Blog

  • The talk opens with a question: “With vast differences in computing power and network speed, how do we deliver the best user experience for everyone?”
  • On the first demo, Dan says: “We’ve built a generic way to ensure that high-priority updates don’t get blocked by a low-priority update, called time slicing.
  • On the second demo, Dan explains: “We’ve built a generic way for components to suspend rendering while they load async data, which we call suspense.
  • You can pause any state update until the data is ready, and you can add async loading to any component deep in the tree without plumbing all the props and state through your app and hoisting the logic.
  • On a slow network, you can intentionally design which loading states the user should see and how granular or coarse they should be, instead of showing spinners based on how the code is written.

ReactJS and The Future of Web Development

#WebDevelopment : ReactJS and The Future of Web Development:  @react @WordPress

  • ReactJS is an open source JavaScript library use to build interactive user interfaces for the websites and other applications.
  • ReactJS is becoming popular in web development.
  • So, if you’re looking to create web applications with interactive UI in quick-time, then ReactJS library suite is your best choice.
  • You can build interactive user interfaces quickly with ReactJS to save valuable time and money without compromising the functionality.
  • Also, you can render ReactJS on the server-side, which is another advantage of using ReactJS for web development.

ReactJS is an interactive framework which is very simple to use. It is easy to build interactive user interface (UI) with ReactJS as per user’s persona.

  • The talk opens with a question: “With vast differences in computing power and network speed, how do we deliver the best user experience for everyone?”
  • If my device is fast enough, it feels almost like it’s synchronous; if my device is slow, the app still feels responsive.
  • Notice that only the final state was displayed; the rendered screen is always consistent and we don’t see visual artifacts of slow rendering causing a janky user experience.”
  • On the second demo, Dan explains: “We’ve built a generic way for components to suspend rendering while they load async data.

Planning to Get An App Built – Ionic V/S React Native



#mobileapplicationdevelopment

  • Some of these companies have specific needs while pursuing application development such as building the cross-platform application, hybrid application or native application.
  • Hybrid VS. Native is a long-standing debate prevalent amongst companies looking for app development.
  • Some of the widely used hybrid application development frameworks include: Ionic, React Native, NativeScript, PhoneGap and Xamarin.
  • It is a classic hybrid development framework which allows web developers to build apps across all major platforms using a single code base.
  • If you have to develop an app in short time span which should have good performance and supports both Progressive Web Apps (PWA) and Native browser apps, then Ionic is the best suitable framework.

In the present time, more and more companies are putting in efforts to build their respective digital products. Some of these companies have specific needs while pursuing application development such as building the cross-platform application, hybrid application or native application.

The Performance Cost of Server Side Rendered React on Node.js

The Performance Cost of Server Side Rendered #reactjs on Node.js by @velmu

  • Note: After initial results I received feedback that I should define the environment variable NODE_ENV=production as this greatly improves performance of server side rendered React.
  • For throughput you can see that React is at a different league compared to the other templating engines when running without production settings, being close to ten times slower than the fastest traditional templating engine.
  • In production environment React performs again similarly to Nunjucks, but noticeably the average response time is significantly longer with the diffrence being some 70ms at concurrency of 250.
  • Like in throughput results, Pug performs close to ES6 template literals, but there is a consistent advantage in response times by the JavaScript native templating – some 12 percent at peak concurrency.
  • Throughput stabilises for both options from concurrency of 5 or more, but for high concurrencies the response time for uncompiled templates grows respectively more.

I like React as a templating engine, not only on the client side but on the server as well. Over the last year or two rendering templates with React.js on the server has become commonplace. Services from rather static content driven sites to Universal JavaScript Applications built on frameworks like Next.js are serving dynamic of server side rendered views using React.

The Performance Cost of Server Side Rendered React on Node.js

  • I created a simple Node.js application (Source on GitHub) with TypeScript that renders a HTML table of 100 rows of employee data from a JSON file with a number of different templating methods: – – For measure I threw in a simple Node HTTP server that dumped the content as…
  • I ran the benchmarks with concurrencies of 1, 5, 50, 100 and 250 and tracked throughput (requests / second) and the average response time (in Milliseconds of waiting for response).
  • Nunjucks scores second last, but beats React by a significant margin providing five times the throughput of ReactDOMServer on the latest Node.js (9.2.0) – – Native ES6 template literals and Pug are a close match, with Pug pulling ahead at a clear margin of 5 to 6 percent throughout the…
  • For the other libraries the average response times are consistent with throughput, although it seems that the native ECMAScript Template Literals provide a lower average response time, especially at high concurrencies; at 250 concurrent requests Pug takes an average of 81ms to respond, where native ES6 templates take around 40%…
  • Throughput stabilises for both options from concurrency of 5 or more, but for high concurrencies the response time for uncompiled templates grows respectively more.

It seems the original results for React.js have not been optimal, since the Node environment had not been set to production. In this env thus React does a lot of extra work under the hood. Thank you to Anatoli Papirovski for noticing this and the additional PR to further optimise performance.

Modern static site generation

  • There is this function called Server Side Rendering where you can produce static HTML content directly from a tree of React.js components.
  • At the time of reading this, this site will already be served by GitHub pages and the content you will see once you view the source it’s been generated by Gatsby.js.
  • Here’s my list:

    At the time that I started following them, all of them were in a very early stage and none of them could generate my site’s content the way I wanted and in the same way as my previous one so to not lose paths and certain functionalities.

  • Think of when you are caching the home page of a WordPress powered site and you are serving the cached content to every visitor.
  • Imagine that instead of having memcached caching your HTML in front of your WordPress site, you trigger a hook each time your database changes that will re-generate the frontend using Gatsby.

In this post, I will talk about static site generators. How they have evolved and why I switched from a Ghost powered site to Gatsby.js, a modern static site generator.
