Have you ever come across code where some function was suffixed with
The way the Adapter works is that you create a function (which can be a class, but it doesn’t have to be implemented as a class) that adapts its interface’s properties and methods into a new class seamlessly — as if the adapter can still be identified and behave like the original while at the same time being able to work with the new interface. …
It is important to keep in consideration the different scenarios in which errors could occur while writing your code. They play an integral part in your web application because you can avoid deadly scenarios (like your application crashing completely) that would otherwise not have been avoided if left unhandled.
It’s often useful to provide a more descriptive error inside your error handlers. And by this, I don’t just mean writing your error message clearer. What I’m referring to is to extend the
By doing this, you can customize the
message property that will be useful for debugging as well as attach custom getters, setters, and methods that need…
Since functions can be passed around anywhere, we can pass them into the arguments of functions.
We’ll be going over five critical tips to compose event handlers in React. This article won’t cover everything that’s possible, but it’ll cover important ways to compose event handlers that every React developer should know at a minimum.
We’re going to start with an input element and attach a
onChange prop to start…
If you’ve been a React developer for a while you might agree with me that working with state can easily be the biggest pain in your day.
So here’s a tip that might help keep you from introducing silent but catastrophic errors: Avoid closures referencing state values from their callback handlers.
If done right, you should have no problems dealing with state in callback handlers. But if at just one point you slip and introduce silent bugs that are hard to debug, that’s when the consequences begin to engulf time in your day that you wish you could take back.
With that said, we’re going to look at an issue in code that will show us a common problematic scenario when we work with state. The code example ahead will show a component
React is a popular library that developers can use to build highly complex and interactive user interfaces for web applications. Many developers that utilize this library to build their apps also simply find it fun to use for many great reasons. For example, its declarative nature makes it less painful and more entertaining to build web apps because code can become predictable and more controllable in our power.
So what makes it less painful then, and what are some examples that can help demonstrate how React can be used to build highly complex and interactive user interfaces?
This article will go over maximizing the capabilities of reusability in React and provide some tips and tricks you can use on your React app today. It will be demonstrated by building an actual React component and explaining step by step why some steps are taken and what can be done to improve their reusability. I would like to stress that there are plenty of ways to make a component reusable. While this article will explain important ways to do this, it does not cover all of them. …
This pattern actually provides the same goal as dependency injection, but in a more flexible and powerful way by acting as the container that houses dependencies of functions (or classes) that require them in times they need it, such as during their initialization phase.
Let’s quickly refresh our minds on what dependency injection is, what it looks like in code, what problems it solves, and what problems it suffers from.
Dependency injection is a pattern that helps to avoid hard coding dependencies in modules, giving the caller the power to change them and provide their own if they wanted to, in one place. …
React is an incredible library to build complex user interfaces, and if you’re new to React, then this article might help you understand how powerful it is for web developers. And if you’re not new to React, then you’ll probably not find anything new in this post, but, hopefully, you might find something new since I’ll be trying to expose both old and new strategies to work with React components.
In this article, we’ll be going over nine ways to manipulate and work with React components in 2020. …
Recursion is a powerful concept in computer programming where a function simply calls itself. I cannot stress enough how important it is to learn how recursion works as soon as possible after learning the basics.
Understanding the concept of recursion and how to create it will help you think more like a programmer, which can help you write more robust code.
Generally, when applying recursion in situations, you almost always get these benefits from it:
Composing functions together can become extremely fun, especially when they work. Unfortunately, it’s not always an easy thing to pull off because writing composed code has to be done without any errors or otherwise, it simply won’t run.
