What You Will LearnInstall powerful React.js tools to make development much more efficientCreate React elements with properties and childrenGet started with stateless and stateful React componentsUse JSX to speed up your React.js development processAdd reactivity to your React components with lifecycle methodsIntegrate your React components with other JavaScript librariesUtilize the Flux application architecture with your React componentsTest your React components with Jest test frameworkIn DetailBuilding web applications with maintainable and performant user interfaces is a challenge that many have faced for more than a decade, but no one has risen to this challenge quite like React.js. Today React.js is used by Facebook, Instagram, Khan Academy, and Imperial College London, to name a few. Many new users recognize the benefits of React.js and adopt it in their own projects, forming a fast-growing community. The speed at which React.js has evolved promises a bright future for those who invest in learning it today.
React.js Essentials will take you on a fast-paced journey through building your own maintainable React.js application. Begin by exploring how you can create single and multiple user interface elements. Create stateless and stateful components and make them reactive, learn to interact between your components and lifecycle methods and gauge how to effectively integrate your user interface components with other JavaScript libraries. Delve deep into the core elements of the Flux architecture and learn how to manage your application using stores. Finish by going that extra mile with the Jest test framework, running multiple tests on your application and find solutions to scale it further without complexity.
Style and approachThe book adopts a step-by-step, hands-on approach with ample codes to ensure you learn React.js at a fast pace.
