4 Key Concepts to Learning ReactJS

4 Key Concepts to Learning #ReactJS  #React #javascript #webdevelopment #coding

  • Aptly named Create-React-App, the tool scaffolds the file structure for your React app and includes a dev server, as well as a compiler, bundler, and more.
  • With so much to learn already in this library, not having to worry about your boilerplate code is a giant relief and the file structure that the CLI tool provides on install will give you everything you need to dive into creating your Dream App™.
  • They allow you to take methods, variables, and even state objects (another ReactJS feature) and pass them around to different parts of your application as PROPerties.
  • Most web apps use one database to store application state and best practice indicates that React state is treated much the same.
  • PropTypes are a way for you to tell your application what type of data your component should expect to be passed to it.

At Modus Create, our culture is defined by a few key objectives, including the value we place on constant learning and sharing of knowledge. It’s no surprise that when I’m not writing automation tests for a client, I am working on personal projects. With most development projects, there comes a time to decide what tools you want to build your UI with. For my latest project, I decided I wanted to use the React library. The only problem was…I didn’t know React — so I decided to see how far I could get using the resources at my disposal.

How to Be A JavaScript Developer – Ken Rogers – Medium

How to Be A JavaScript Developer  #meteor #javascript #webdevelopment #react #reactjs

  • But I’ve always found that the best way to learn web development is to just build things.Meteor is a great way to get started just building things.It’s become a little more complex since its early days, but with the right setup and direction, it can still be a great way to bootstrap reactive applications.I think it’s a fantastic way to get started learning JavaScript development, or branch out into a new framework if you’ve already been using JavaScript for a while.So I wanted to put together this little guide that will serve as a potential path to learning web development with Meteor and React.All of these are resources that I have personally used and have served me well in learning.
  • Learn ES2015This free walkthrough of ES2015 does a great job of introducing you to the basics and walking you through how to use all of the new shiny things.Step 2 — Learn MeteorAlright, now that you’re familiar with JavaScript and its new syntax and capabilities, it’s time to dive in to Meteor.The Meteor TutorialThe official tutorial from Meteor.
  • The Meteor GuideAfter you’ve been introduced to Meteor with the tutorial, dive in to the guide to learn how to structure your project, and to get some more in depth knowledge on the finer points of MeteorStep 3 — Learn ReactSo you’ve got a decent handle on Meteor, not let’s dive into React.The React DocsThe official React docs do a good job of introducing you to the concepts and how to think in a React-ish way.2.
  • It also comes with GitHub source code so you can use it as an example.Phase 2 — BuildStep 1 — Experiment with BaseNow that you’ve got a good grasp on how to develop using Meteor and React, it’s time to start building things.Base is a Meteor boilerplate project to help you bootstrap your Meteor projects.It’s built with React and also uses React Router.In my opinion, downloading Base and digging into it, hacking on it, and using to as the starting point for your own project is one of the best ways to learn development with Meteor.By digging into Base, you’ll get an idea of best practices when building things with Meteor and React, and you’ll be able to use it as a template for building projects.Using the books and courses from the Learn phase as your foundation, you’ll be able to understand how Base is put together and how it all works.Really take the time to dig into every different component and figure out how everything is working.
  • Resist the urge to bounce around from framework to framework, constantly switching to whatever seems coolest.Instead, find problems that need to be solved, figure out a way to solve them with web applications, and then find the proper tool for the job.One of the most important skills for a professional developer is being able to build usable applications that solve real problems for real people.If you can find examples of those out in the wild, and build up a portfolio of yourself solving those with web apps, you’ll be indispensable.So now that you know the basics of JavaScript development with Meteor and React, I want you to get out there and start using that knowledge to solve real problems.Share that knowledge and those solutions with others.

A few years ago, I stumbled on a video of somebody making a responsive, real-time web app using something called Meteor. If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend giving it a watch. It was pretty…

React’s Five Fingers of Death. Master these five concepts, then master React.

The 5 things you need to know to understand #ReactJS:

  • If you’ve enjoyed this article, please share it and recommend it (that little green heart just below).
  • The consequence of using the functional component syntax is that you lose access to the component methods we just talked about.
  • Higher-order components are a common pattern for giving a component access to new tools.
  • A HoC is a component that you can wrap around another component to pass it special props, and it’s typically created using a higher-order component factory function .
  • And we’ve also talked about the component methods supported by these classes.

A few years ago, my friend Sean started telling me how this brand new front-end library called React was going to take over the web. At first I dismissed it as just another framework fad. But then I…
