Getting To Know Flux, the React.js Architecture

The Dispatcher is basically the manager of this entire process. It is the central hub for your application. The dispatcher receives actions and dispatches the actions and data to registered callbacks. So it’s essentially pub/sub? Not exactly. Check out what one looks like below: In the above example, we create an instance of our Dispatcher and create a handleViewAction method. Our method calls the dispatch method, which will broadcast the action payload to all of its registered callbacks. The diagram below illustrates this process: Dependencies One of the coolest parts of the provided Dispatcher module is the ability to define dependencies and marshall the callbacks on our Stores.

In order to utilize this feature, we need to store the return value of the Dispatcher’s registration method on our Store as dispatcherIndex, as shown below: ShoeStore.dispatcherIndex = AppDispatcher.register(function(payload) { }); GitHub - Granze/react-starterify: A minimal React JS application starter kit.

In this post, I'll walk you through the thought process of building a searchable product data table using React. Start with a mock # Imagine that we already have a JSON API and a mock from our designer. Our JSON API returns some data that looks like this: Step 1: break the UI into a component hierarchy # The first thing you'll want to do is to draw boxes around every component (and subcomponent) in the mock and give them all names.

But how do you know what should be its own component? Since you're often displaying a JSON data model to a user, you'll find that if your model was built correctly, your UI (and therefore your component structure) will map nicely. You'll see here that we have five components in our simple app. Read Setting up ES6. 1.
