React Digest #122 for November 20, 2017

  • How Redux Can Make You a Better Developer When React came out I was really amazed with its easiness of use and learning curve.
  • When I first started learning React I wasn’t aware of the fact that React is just a library and not a fully fledged framework.
  • Other frameworks would give you solutions and architecture out of the box which is not the case with React lib.
  • Getting from Redux to a state machine This article is about Stent – a Redux-liked library that creates and manages state machines.
  • 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.

When I first started learning React I wasn’t aware of the fact that React is just a library and not a fully fledged framework. I wasn’t aware that I would need to make all decisions about architecture and what exactly I would need to use in order to solve some common tasks. Other frameworks would give you solutions and architecture out of the box which is not the case with React lib. Yes, someone might say that I was naive and dumb but that naivety and my will to learn new things pushed me forward and made me a better developer and decision maker.

‘REACT.JS’ — WHERE AND WHY TO USE IT? @nodejs #NodeJS #webdev #javascript #reactjs @reactjs

  • One such example is when Code Academy adopted Facebook’s library, React JS to write JavaScript UIs , which lead to certain important discussion points regarding how React JS can be put to good use in case of larger and complex applications similar to Code Academy.What is React?Simply put, React is a UI library created at Facebook to cater the development of interactive and reusable UI components.
  • One of the USPs of React is that it can perform both on client side and rendered server side and also can work together.React is intended to make the overall process of building reusable, modular, user interface components intuitive and simple.
  • In place of the traditional approach of writing user interfaces, it treats every UI (User Interface) element as a contained state machine.Why use React for larger applications?React is very a lightweight and simple library which only deals with view layer.
  • You should think over the possible performance issues when you build a web application which has a higher user interaction and view updates.
  • React is expressively more SEO friendly than other JavaScript MVC frameworks since it is based on the virtual DOM.The Bottom LineReact is a powerful, lightweight, battle-tested library to build user interfaces with JavaScript.

The Web has gone far too long since HTML5 first came into the picture and people started observing JavaScript as a language which could be used for building complex apps. Most of the APIs have…
