Front End v. Back End Explained by Waiting Tables At A Restaurant

  • Front End v. Back End Explained by Waiting Tables At A RestaurantIf you have ever visited a sit-down restaurant, then you can understand the difference between front-end and back-end in web development.
  • Here’s the general idea: just like there is a waitstaff and kitchen staff in a restaurant, front-end and back-end divides the functionality of your site.
  • In web development, the front-end is also sometimes called the client-side, while the back-end is also called the server-side.

Protected routes and authentication with React Router v4

Protected routes and authentication with React Router v4  #ReactJS

  • In this post we’ll break down the “Redirects (Auth)” example on the React Router documentation to learn how to create authenticated routes (routes that only certain users can access based on their authentication status) using React Router.
  • It would be nice if, just like React Router gives us a component, they also gave us a component which would render the only if the user was authenticated.
  • So now what we’re doing is when the user authenticates, we change to true which causes a re-render and then renders the component taking the user to the route.
  • First, inside of our component when we redirect the user for not being authenticated, we’ll need to pass along the current route they’re trying to visit so we can come back to it after they authenticate.
  • Now we need to modify our component so that if the user was redirected there from a previous route, once they authenticate, they’re taken back to that original route.

Protected routes are an important part of any web application. In this post we’ll break down the “Redirects (Auth)” example on the React Router documentation to learn how to create authenticated routes (routes that only certain users can access based on their authentication status) using React Router.

  • But for a feature rich app experience, it’s just not going to give good enough results.Even Facebook initially built their app as a mobile web app to be able to roll out features faster, but eventually switched back to native.Write once, build nativeIf each native platform needs code written in it’s…
  • Microsoft has invested heavily in cross platform mobile tooling, because as less than 1% of the global market for mobile devices, no one is going to build apps for just their platform alone.A slightly different approach is used by React Native (and Native Script).
  • While the word hybrid is certainly apt, React Native works so differently from the HTML based hybrid app options, I’d like to think of it as different class instead, with it’s main characteristic being the way it plays puppeteer to the native interface.The way that this works in practice is…

Building a static website from scratch? Go @gatsbyjs. Most impressive framework I’ve seen. Powered by @reactjs.

  • You get code and data splitting out-of-the-box.
  • Gatsby loads an HTML file that’s a server rendered version of your React.js page then makes it live with JavaScript.
  • Code and data for other pages get preloaded so clicking around the site feels incredibly fast.

Enjoy all the power of the latest web technologies. React.js, webpack, modern JavaScript and CSS and more are all setup and waiting for you to install and start building.

📣 Handling complex forms in #reactjs with ease by @ArcEglos – next Tuesday @arangodb

  • Angular’s shift away from direct DOM access, allows for using it to build apps on all sorts of platforms.
  • Desktop apps, fully native mobile apps and even microcontrollers can all be developed for with Angular.
  • In this session, we’ll develop a web app, a fully native mobile app and an IoT-app all based on Angular and a similar code base.
  • You’ll learn how to share code between these platforms and how you should design your architecture to build such robust Angular applications.
  • But mind you, you’ll learn a lot of good practices for your Angular based web development and you’ll gain a deep understanding of the philosophy behind the Angular framework.

This Time it’s all about Angular and React.
Angular is not a web framework! by Julian Steiner
… Angular is a platform! Angular’s shift away from direct D

Converting a React App to React Native – Gwendolyn Faraday – Medium

Converting a React App to React Native  #reactnative #react #reactjs

  • Converting a React App to React NativeI have been working on a lot of mobile projects lately — including Cordova, PhoneGap, React Native, some Ionic and Swift — but I have to say, React Native is by far the best experience in mobile development I have had so far.
  • It shares the same workflow as a React application for the web which is pretty easy to reason about and find where things are quickly.Now I am building an app to gamify recycling in Indiana.
  • Since the web app is in React, I figured it would be easier to build the Native version in iOS and Android at the same time using React Native.Here are some mockups to give you an idea.
  • (I changed the menu from the right side to the left side after this)Setting Up the React Native AppWhere React Native outdoes React is on it’s simple set up for apps.
  • That was pretty quick and easy —I just installed a few modules and wrote a minimal amount of code.List ViewsMost of the components I made I was able to copy from my web app and just update the UI.For this app, I have an ever-growing array of various characters that I wanted to display in a scrollable list on mobile.

Adding Users to the Node.js / React.js Neo4j Movie App

Adding Users to the #Nodejs / #Reactjs Neo4j Movie App


via @thesilverlogic

  • Once a user has logged in and navigated to a page that displays movies, the user can select a star rating for the movie or remove the rating of a movie he or she has already rated.
  • When a user visits their own profile, the user will see movie recommendations.
  • These users will be able to log in and out, rate movies, and receive movie recommendations.
  • Before a User can rate a Movie , the the user has to exist – someone has to sign up for an account.
  • Users with established tastes may be interested in finding movies with similar characteristics as his or her highly-rated movies, while not necessarily caring about whether another user has or hasn’t already rated the movie.

Learn how to add users and movie recommendation engine to the Neo4j Movie App Template using Node.js and React.js in addition to the Cypher query language.
