Top React Libraries for Developers to Check Out in 2019

Whether you are a single developer or a project manager, the first and the foremost thing you want is to keep up with the latest trends in the market and have a clear idea about the newest core technologies. Now, this does not come as a surprise as a core characteristic of a developer is to keep up with changing technologies. If we look at the things from the perspective of an entrepreneur, things are not much different. They want to opt for the best technology solution for their business to progress and grow.
So, from every perspective, if you are thinking about JavaScript, then it has to be React. React is an open source JavaScript library which is used to build amazing interfaces for mobile and web applications. This JavaScript library comes with standalone code in bits, which are called components, and it has the ability to combine with other JavaScript frameworks and libraries out there easily. Now, these components have managed to take up the limelight.

Game of Frameworks: JavaScript Trends of 2019

The JavaScript ecosystem reminds me of a battlefield. TypeScript vs. ES6, React vs. Angular, Jest vs. Mocha… Just like a popular TV series, all these confrontations make JS enthusiasts eagerly wait for the updates, asking themselves: What should I learn to use next? Meanwhile, the armies of each technology’s followers only stir the pot. Here at CV Compiler, we help improve dozens of JS developers’ resumes weekly, so we also keep track of this Game of Frameworks, regularly analyzing employers’ demands. But in this article, I’m not going to support or criticize any of the technologies — I’ll just provide an outside perspective on the current trends in JavaScript.

React Query Builder With Cube.js

Starting from version 0.4, the React Cube.js client comes with the component. It is designed to help developers build interactive analytics query builders. The <QueryBuilder /> abstracts state management and API calls to the Cube.js backend. It uses the render prop and doesn’t render anything itself, but calls the render function instead. This way it gives maximum flexibility to building a custom-tailored UI with a minimal API.
The example below shows the <QueryBuilder /> component in action with Ant Design UI framework elements.

Push Notifications in PWA (React.js) Using Firebase

Many sites send notifications to their users through the browser for various events occurring within the web app. We can easily do this using Cloud Messaging, which allows us to send messages to any device using HTTP requests with Firebase.
Here are the basic steps required for pushing the notifications to a web app using Firebase.

React vs. Angular Compared: Which One Suits Your Project Better?

In the programming world, Angular and React are among the most popular JavaScript frameworks for front-end developers. Moreover, these two – together with Node.js – made it to the top three frameworks used by all software engineers on all programming languages, according to Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2018.
Both of these front-end frameworks are close to equal in popularity, have similar architectures, and are based on JavaScript. So what’s the difference? In this article, we’ll compare React and Angular. Let us start by looking at the frameworks’ general characteristics in the next paragraph. And if you are looking for other React and Angular comparisons, you can review our articles on cross-platform mobile frameworks (including React Native), or comparison of Angular with other front-end frameworks.

Will React.js Continue to Dominate in 2019?

As per a survey conducted by The State of Javascript for 2018, React surpassed Angular and others in becoming the most loved UI framework. The popularity of React has left many of us wondering whether it will be the most dominant framework of 2019. The framework, developed and maintained by Facebook, is widely used by PayTM, Fiverr, Instagram, IMDB, and many other popular organizations. Let’s discuss the benefits of React and the reasons why it has become so popular.
So, What Is React.js?
The social media giant, Facebook, introduced React.js to the world in 2013. It is an open-source JavaScript framework, the purpose of which is to create engaging and rich web applications that can run efficiently with minimal coding. Earlier, Angular was considered to be the most preferred option for developing single page web applications, but with the introduction of React, which focuses on the features of individual components, developers found their newly developed web pages rendered faster. Along with the flexibility to cover a larger number of use test cases, React has a vast tutorial base and a large community of developers who can provide solutions to problems faced by new, as well as experienced, developers.

Building a Website With Gatsby and a Headless CMS

If you’re looking to launch a small, static, and speedy website, micro-site, or landing page, you may be considering a static-site generator like Gatsby.
This article will walk you through the process of using Gatsby alongside dotCMS, a Java-based open-source headless CMS, to build a static website that uses API calls to pull content that’s created, stored, and managed in dotCMS, and presented by Gatsby.

React.js and Front-End Development

With more than 1,300 developers and over 94,000 sites utilizing React.js, it wouldn’t be an overstatement to call React the future of front-end development. After all, Fortune 500 companies like Facebook, PayPal, Uber, Instagram, and Airbnb utilize this JavaScript-based UI library for a major part of their applications’ front-end development for web as well as mobile.
Before React Arrived
When React came around, Angular was the only major contender in the JS framework space. While Angular was a very complete framework (it still is), it was a nightmare for developers. They had to do a lot of coding, and with a steep learning curve even for seasoned JavaScript developers, AngularJS was never the most desirable way to build JS applications. It has more functionalities than most developers need.

Cross-Browser Compatibility and React.js Web Apps

Sometimes I feel that events in life happen in a sequence so that you regularly come across ‘cringe’ moments. Like when you have sand in your mouth or you hear the excruciating sound of nails against a chalk board. For me, personally, the worst cringe-worthy moment is when I come across a really bad web app or website. When I say bad, I mean Internet Explorer bad (just kidding, it’s a nice browser). Directionless navigation, features that are not working, bad design, and painful UX. But, the biggest problem is missing cross-browser compatibility.
Why React?
React is simply a UI and functionality library for JavaScript-based apps. We recently talked about React.js in our last post, Choosing the Right JavaScript Framework in 2018. So, in this post, we would look in more detail at how React.js helps in the development of cross-browser compatible web apps.
