Old Flux, New Flux

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.

What Is JSX? [Snippet]

JSX stands for JavaScript XML. It is used with React to describe what the UI should look like. JSX produces React “elements” in a familiar and easy manner. React doesn’t require using JSX, but you can find it helpful as a visual aid when working with UI inside the JavaScript code. It also allows React to show more useful error and warning messages. If you want to create a React element without JSX you need to write something like this:
var temp = React.createElement( ‘h1’, null, ‘test’ );
By using JSX, the above code isreduced to the following:

When to Break Up a Component Into Multiple Components

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:

What Is Better for Web Development, React or Angular?

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.

JavaScript Frameworks: How To Make Your Choice

JavaScript is one of the most commonly used, basic languages of the Internet. According to a survey, JavaScript was the top language among front-end developers, and it doesn’t seem to be losing popularity. That’s why, today, there are so many JavaScript frameworks — and it’s difficult to understand which is most effective. The more frameworks that appear, the more discussions that surround them. The developer community talks a lot about which frameworks are most efficient for front-end development. Based on our research, we’ve identified the five most-discussed JavaScript frameworks. We also share Yalantis’ experience by showing the JavaScript frameworks what our front-end developers prefer.
