Fast websites drive sales: stay under 3 seconds

Milliseconds matter. Make your website load under 3 seconds:
 #ux #usability #reactjs

  • A fast responding website keeps your users happy, helps drive sales for e-commerce, gives you better SEO ranking and also saves you a buck on infrastructure.
  • A normal usability rule, coined by Jacob Nielsen, is to stay under 0.1 seconds for response time and the system feels instant for the user.
  • About 10 years ago Amazon published the remarkable statistics that for every 100ms of latency on their website it costed them 1% in sales.
  • Better search engine ranking drives more traffic to your website.
  • By having lower response time it usually means that you have a lighter running web App.

Stay ahead of the game and make sure your website or webshop is fast. A fast responding website keeps your users happy, helps drive sales for e-commerce, gives you better SEO ranking and also saves you a buck on infrastructure.

Protected routes and Authentication with React and Node.js

Protected routes and Authentication with React and Node.js  #reactjs  #react #Nodejs

  • Front-end App ArchitectureI’m a huge fan of the React Boilerplate architecture so I created something similar to organize my code: – /src – └─── containers // React components associated with a Route – | └─── App // The entry point of the application – | └─── AuthPage // Component handling…
  • component={AuthPage} / – Route exact path=”/connect/:provider” component={ConnectPage} / – Route path=”” component={NotFoundPage} / – /Switch – /div – /Router – ); – } – } – – export default App;Creating the Authentication ViewsNow that all our routes are implemented we need the create our views.  –  The way we declared…
  • First of all, let’s create a forms.json file that will handle the creation of the form on each auth structure of the JSON will be like the following (you can see a customBootstrapClass key that is needed in the Input component): – { – “views”: { – “login”: [ -…
  • Here is the flow: – The user clicks on login with FacebookIt redirects him to another page so he can authorize the appOnce authorized, Facebook redirects the user to your app with a code in the URLSend this code to StrapiAt this point, we need to implement only one lifecycle…
  • catch(err = { – }); – } – – redirectUser = (path) = { – the Providers in the AuthPage – To do so, we need a SocialLinkcomponent like the following: – /** – * – * SocialLink – * – */ – – import React from ‘react’; – import…

So I started a side project to create a tiny boilerplate with nothing more than Create React App to implement the authentication flow with Strapi, a Node.js framework with an extensible admin panel…

We built our entire startup on React Native and this is what we found out

We built our entire startup on #ReactNative and this is what we found out:  #developer

  • However with the Android market share being pretty high, we had to make sure our app worked on both Android and iOS.
  • We wanted the iOS app to look and feel native.That’s where React Native came into the picture.
  • Could React Native pull this off and still look native?A few months down the line, with our iOS and Android app on the respective stores, I can tell you the journey was nothing but spectacular.
  • But hey, if we could go from an iOS app to fully functional Android app in 2 days, can it really get any better?Honestly I have never written an app for iOS on objective C that didn’t crash during beta testing a few times.
  • And to my amazement, our React Native app on iOS is yet to crash even once during production run.

At Genie! we like to spend most of our time giving our users the best experience to send and receive gifts. However I only had expertise writing apps for iOS and not Android. When we first decided to…

Flutter makes it easy and fast to build beautiful mobile apps.

  • Easily compose your UI with Flutter’s modern reactive framework and rich set of platform, layout, and foundation widgets.
  • class CounterState extends State { int counter = 0; void increment() { // Tells the Flutter framework that state has changed, // so the framework can run build() and update the display.
  • // The Flutter framework has been optimized to make rerunning // build methods fast, so that you can just rebuild anything that // needs updating rather than having to individually change // instances of widgets.
  • Flutter lets you reuse your existing Java, Swift, and ObjC code, and access native features and SDKs on iOS and Android.
  • ; } setState(() { _batteryLevel = batteryLevel; }); } Learn how to use packages, or write platform channels, to access native code, APIs, and SDKs.


Refresh times so fast, you can “paint” your app to life
on hardware, emulators, and simulators.

Ch 10 “React Native” is new to React in Action @ManningBooks @MarkTheThomas #react

Ch 10

  • React is an open source JavaScript framework that lets you quickly create user interfaces for web applications.
  • It also utilizes a component-focused design, so you can build large, robust web applications that scale well with users and developers.
  • Reasoning about an interface or application written with React ends up being much easier because it decreases overall complexity for developers working with it.
  • Large and small companies alike are using React for highly-visible, high-impact applications including Facebook.com, Netflix.com, and Airbnb.com.
  • “An up-to-date and very comprehensive book on React, not only limited to React itself but also discusses how it can be integrated with other tools and frameworks.”

React is an open source JavaScript framework that lets you quickly create user interfaces for web applications. This highly-performant tool implements a one-way data flow model, which means communication is much more top-down than side-to- side. It also utilizes a component-focused design, so you can build large, robust web applications that scale well with users and developers. Reasoning about an interface or application written with React ends up being much easier because it decreases overall complexity for developers working with it.
