Fullstack React: Fullstack React’s Guide to using Refs in React Components

  • Refs in React provides a way to access the React elements (or DOM nodes) created in the method.
  • Refs can be created by using the function and attached to an HTML element in a React component via the attribute.
  • Like previous example above this code gets the text value of an tag, but here we use callback refs instead: – – In the example above, the tag has a set to .
  • With string refs, you’ll see the markup of the input tag set to something like: – – And then on the component, we’d get the value like this: – but, again, this should not be done in new code as the API will be deprecated.
  • Let’s look at an example below: – – Ref forwarding allows components to take a they receive and pass it further down (in other words, forward it) to a child.

Why GraphQL: Advantages, Disadvantages & Alternatives – RWieruch

  • However, by having a query language such as GraphQL which is used on the server-side but also on the client-side, the client decides what data it needs by making only one request to the server.
  • In the case of Facebooks development of mobile applications with GraphQL, it reduced the network usage dramatically, because with GraphQL one had to make only one request and the amount of data transferred decreased.
  • As you can see, one query already requests multiple resources (author, article), which are called fields in GraphQL, and only a particular set of nested fields for these fields (name, urlSlug for article) even though the entity itself may offer more data in its GraphQL schema (e.g. description, releaseData for…
  • Whereas the server application offers a GraphQL schema where it defines all available data with its hierarchy and types, a client application only queries the required data.
  • Thus GraphQL can be used to connect both worlds but also to fulfil the requirements (e.g. network usage requirements, nested relationships of data, fetching only the required data) of each client application without having a dedicated API for each client.
