If you are not new to front-end development, you have heard about the evolution in Flux, Redux, and React, and, most likely, have tried it or directly used it in a project. It comes with no surprise since the popularity of React is undeniable. React’s success is attributable to its simplicity, ease of use, and a great community. Evolution of Flux I would also bet that most of you have used React with Redux. Both libraries go hand-in-hand so often that it’s difficult to imagine it’s possible to use React without Redux. Nevertheless, believe it or not, React is a library for building user interfaces developed by Facebook, and Redux is a library for managing application’s state developed by Dan Abramov and Andrew Clark, not Facebook. Facebook has its own library to do that job, which is Flux. Despite Flux being released about a year before Redux, and coming from Facebook itself, Redux has become the de facto standard to use with React.
Podcasts seem to be everywhere this year. They’re the perfect medium for tuning out from the world, and also for tuning in a little closer to your industry and learning something along the way.
Recently, we’ve come across (and been featured on) some incredible podcasts in our industry including The Ruby on Rails Podcast and Giant Robots Smashing Into Other Giant Robots.
var temp = React.createElement( ‘h1’, null, ‘test’ );
By using JSX, the above code isreduced to the following:
Did you know that you could write any React application as a single React component? There’s absolutely nothing technically stopping React from putting your entire application into one giant component. You’d have a HUGE render method, a TON of instance methods, a LOT of state, and you’d probably need every lifecycle hook (with the exception of shouldComponentUpdate (it should always update!) and componentWillUnmount (it will never unmount!)). If you tried this, though, you’d face a few problems:
React is an extremely powerful library created by Facebook for front-end development, which allows the developer to build user interfaces.
It is considered in IT world that customers can completely rely on their technology partners to get their products successfully delivered but probably they have never tried to conduct their own research on the stacks, technologies, or tools required for their projects. In this article, you will learn what is the difference between React and Angular and how to make your own choice.
Angular Pros and Cons
542 Angular jobs are currently offered on Indeed in the United States. Surely, the prime advantage of Angular is its popularity. It could be argued that it is Google that affected the way7 Angular is treated. However, the first version of Angular has quickly become popular because those developers who came from other development environments found there a familiar MVC pattern for building single-page applications (SPAs). After upgrading AngularJS and modifying some of its features, the popularity of the framework skyrocketed. And there is no wonder that today the IT market has a serious demand for Angular developers. Moreover, it is one of the few frameworks which provides a set of rich possibilities and components for creating user interfaces.

The Full Monty: React With Redux and Bindings
