React News TLDR / Table of Contents

  • That said, I would be surprised to see a company have actual positions for junior/senior React developers specifically.
  • A junior React developer is likely just a junior frontend developer with a special focus on the React ecosystem, a senior React developer is likely just a senior frontend/full-stack developer who mostly works on React projects.
  • But especially for the latter I don’t think “knowing/using React” is something you can be so good at that it warrants a “senior” title on its own — they’ll likely also have extensive knowledge/experience in JavaScript and CSS and be familiar with various other libraries and APIs.
  • By the time you’re a senior you should be able to familiarise yourself with new libraries pretty quickly and React’s API surface just isn’t big enough to warrant specialisation in that itself.
  • The title really only makes sense as a distinction from e.g. a “Senior Angular Developer” (because Angular brings a more standardised ecosystem) in which case I’d expect a React developer to be very familiar with routing, state management, side-effects, and so on, but not necessarily have thorough experience with any…

  • You can apply CSS to your Pen from any stylesheet on the web.
  • Just put a URL to it here and we’ll apply it, in the order you have them, before the CSS in the Pen itself.
  • If the stylesheet you link to has the file extension of a preprocessor, we’ll attempt to process it before applying.
  • You can also link to another Pen here, and we’ll pull the CSS from that Pen and include it.
  • If it’s using a matching preprocessor, we’ll combine the code before preprocessing, so you can use the linked Pen as a true dependency.

  • We’ll be taking a closer look at the instructor side of things, implementing the container pattern to build of the ability for an instructor to select a calendar day and a student to view that student’s attendance record details for that day.
  • So, we’ll build a container components, , that contains the child presentational components of calendar and attendance record show.
  • So, let’s teach how to identify and grab the attendance record for the selected student and day, and pass that down to the appropriate presentational components.
  • So, we’ll build another container component, , that will fetch the student data and pass it down to a presentational component, as part of – – should follow a similar pattern to ––use to grab the students and use the lifecycle method to fetch students from the API if none…
  • The top-level container component, will render like this: – – Now that we have our student list up and running and displaying a lovely list of students, we need to allow our user to click on a student from that list, make that student the “selected student”, and display that…

  • Often, the answers we find are on blogs written by people who’ve been there, and found a solution.
  • Isn’t it time you paid it forward?
  • Gatsby.js is a static site generator for React with a plugin ecosystem that makes it super easy to publish.
  • In this course, you’ll build a Gatsby site that transforms Markdown documents from your local filesystem into HTML.
  • After your site has been compiled, you’ll see how to deploy it via Github Pages.

  • It was 2016 when Vue.js rose to fame and gained so much traction that it’s now seen as an alternative for even well established JavaScript libraries, such as Angular and React.
  • Since Angular belongs to search engine giant Google and React comes from social media behemoth Facebook, developers still trust and use those libraries more than Vue.js.
  • This blog attempts to shed light on why there is a growing belief among developers that Vue.js is set to become the top JavaScript library, leaving behind Angular and React.
  • The reason many developers are turning to Vue is that it addresses the issues of React and Angular.
  • But, one must not forget that Angular and React are still very big names in the JavaScript world, whereas Vue has just begun to rise.
