React.js Introduction For People Who Know Just Enough jQuery To Get By · React for Designers
Updates: Jul 15, 2016: Updated for React 15. I also heard React.js was good and recently spent some time playing with it. Now that I’m pretty comfortable with React, I decided to write a tutorial on this subject. Target Audience: People Who Know Just Enough jQuery to Get by Before I begin, I’d like to clarify who my target audience is. Zed Shaw, the author of “Learn Code the Hard Way” series, recently wrote an excellent blog post called Early v.s. I don’t want to make a similar mistake here. In this tutorial, I’m targeting the third group I mentioned: people who know just enough jQuery to get by. Designers who can do basic coding in HTML/CSS/jQuery. If you’re comfortable with JavaScript or any of the frontend frameworks like Backbone/Ember/Angular, this tutorial is NOT for you, and you’ll be very frustrated with my writing style. Also, if you already know React, you’ll be pretty upset with me as well because I’ll be talking mostly about states instead of immutability or componetization.

Using React and jQuery Together · Tech Blog 22 Mar 2016 by Alex In this post I’ll be covering some tips on how to use React and jQuery together in the same UI. Okay so first off you might be thinking “why would you want to do such a thing?” - in fact the idea of trying to make React’s declarative style live together with imperative jQuery DOM updates may have you thinking something like this, and for the most part, you wouldn’t be wrong. So first the “why.” If you’re starting a brand new, “greenfield” project and you want to use React, then just do it.

AngularJS Expression Security Internals Introduction As part of my research duties I tasked myself with becoming more familiar with the newer MVC frameworks, the most interesting one was AngularJS. I wanted to share with everyone my process for analyzing the expression functionality built in to AngularJS as I feel it's a pretty interesting and unique code base. AngularJS exposes an expression language that exposes a limited set of JavaScript to an HTML template. Source Multiplayer Networking Multiplayer games based on the Source Engine use a Client-Server networking architecture. Usually a server is a dedicated host that runs the game and is authoritative about world simulation, game rules, and player input processing. A client is a player's computer connected to a game server. The client and server communicate with each other by sending small data packets at a high frequency (usually 20 to 30 packets per second). A client receives the current world state from the server and generates video and audio output based on these updates. The client also samples data from input devices (keyboard, mouse, microphone, etc.) and sends these input samples back to the server for further processing.

Trying out React - Artsy Engineering We recently picked up a Rails application that was a few features away from completion. This application allows our Genome Team to classify multiple artworks based on visual and art historical characteristics. These characteristics, or "genes", can be added, removed, and changed for any of the artworks on the panel. Our genomers are masters of efficiency, and over the years we have worked closely with them to tailor a dynamic interface to their specific workflow. When we started working on the app, the back-end was organized, modular, and interfaced seamlessly with the Artsy API, but there were still a few front-end features we needed to implement before it could be used by the Genome Team. The app did not use a front-end framework, and as our features scaled it was difficult to keep track of UI state with pure CoffeeScript and global event listeners.

slick - the last carousel you'll ever need Set up your HTML markup. <div class="your-class"><div>your content</div><div>your content</div><div>your content</div></div> Move the /slick folder into your project Add slick.css in your <head> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="slick/slick.css"/> // Add the new slick-theme.css if you want the default styling <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="slick/slick-theme.css"/> Add slick.js before your closing <body> tag, after jQuery (requires jQuery 1.7 +) ReactJS Animation done in two ways – ChloeChen The React way ReactJS provides a high-level API: ReactCssTransitionGroup to perform CSS3 Transition based animation. By using ReactCSSTransitionGroup, you get a class change when an item is entering, has entered, is leaving, and has left. Let’s analyse the following code:

The State of JS Build Tools 2015 I’ve recently been looking at JavaScript build tools because I am starting a project in AngularJS. So of course, I will need a build tool to compile, bundle and minify my scripts and style sheets. Another reason to look into these now is that Visual Studio 2015 will add support for task runners like Grunt and Gulp. My starting point in this process was the “Gruntfile.js” created for me by the useful scaffolding tool Yeoman. Out of the box it came configured to use Sass with SCSS, while I prefer Less. So, I looked into what it would take to switch. React.js resources It has been some time (almost 2 years?) since we started using React.js at Arkency. It quickly propagated to all of our projects. Along the way, we’ve been blogging a lot about what we learnt. So far we’ve released: 28 blogposts5 open repositoriesReact.js koans7 YT videos2 books (with repos)dozens of emails to our React Kung Fu mailing list

How React Do? I like doing things from total scratch, or at least what seems like total scratch to me. For this reason a lot of modern javascript has baffled me. I can’t keep up with all the frameworks because I always want to know what’s going on at the root of things. I think this is maybe a laudable impulse, but I have a lot of FOMO with all the new hotnesses because I just don’t have the patience or time to learn all the API’s before some other thing comes along. In practice, I really would like to be better at javascript, but the number of possible entry points can be overwhelming. I spend a lot of my time as a product engineer writing javascript, and sometimes, I write really bad javascript!

Tech Hiring Has Always Been Broken. Here’s How I Survived it for Decades. — JavaScript Scene Tech Hiring Has Always Been Broken. Here’s How I Survived it for Decades. Sahat Yalkabov recently ranted about how broken tech hiring is driving him away from coding interviews. He echoed many of my own frustrations about both sides of the process, but more importantly, he shined a light on the fact that poor hiring practices aren’t simply bad for the company doing the hiring, but the whole community. How is Hiring Broken? Interviews are too random and arbitrary, and fail to tell you what you need to know about the candidate.Companies pass on qualified candidates who would have served them very well, which can cause them to extend their search for months, and cost tens of thousands of dollars.Junior developers frequently have a hard time getting a foothold in the industry.Your company may be overpaying for too many senior developers, and not hiring enough junior developers.Candidates get frustrated and leave the industry.Companies have fewer good candidates to choose from.

7 Essential JavaScript Functions I remember the early days of JavaScript where you needed a simple function for just about everything because the browser vendors implemented features differently, and not just edge features, basic features, like addEventListener and attachEvent. Times have changed but there are still a few functions each developer should have in their arsenal, for performance for functional ease purposes. debounce The debounce function can be a game-changer when it comes to event-fueled performance. If you aren't using a debouncing function with a scroll, resize, key* event, you're probably doing it wrong.

Tutorial: Setting Up a Simple Isomorphic React app Note: this tutorial assumes React 0.13 and React-Router 0.13. Updates coming soon for the new versions After hearing the responses of one of my other tutorials, it quickly became evident that a quick Google search on "setting up React" led to very confusing results. One of the biggest causes of this confusion is what an "isomorphic app" is.
