Modern front-end development is more demanding than ever before with new design standards, code requirements, and the introduction of responsive web and mobile designs. As a result, finding ways to automate the conversion of design files into functional code can save engineering teams potentially hundreds of development hours.

While it’s true that each project and team may have their own workflow and tools for turning designs into a working product, there are some common functions and phases which are essential in any design-to-development handoff. To identify opportunities for automation, we must first understand how the current manual process works.

The Overall Job Market for Developers Remains Strong Heading Into 2021

The technology industry continues to grow by leaps and bounds with ongoing technical innovation across the globe. Accordingly, the demand for top tech talent is also skyrocketing.

There are a lot of ways to implement autocomplete in React based on how the suggestions are filtered and presented. Here, you can find three Autocomplete libraries that are commonly used to implement the Autocomplete feature in React. I won’t stop there, I’ll also tell you how to implement your own autocomplete feature without using any library.

For code examples, we have used a fixed list of suggestions that are passed to the component.

You can find autocomplete components shared on Bit (Github), as well. I personally recommend you build your own component and share it on Bit to reuse in your future projects (see the last item on that list “React Autocomplete Component from Scratch”). …

Nowadays, CLIs have better designs and are much easier to work with. Even their functionality has been extended a lot. CLIs are no longer limited to hardcore programmers anymore.

In this article, we talk about how to build a CLI tool using React. We discuss two libraries that can be used for this: INK and React-Blessed.

There are many benefits to building your CLI using React. An obvious one would be to use what you already know, but another one would be to fully embrace component-driven design. This enables you to handle your CLI components the same way you would handle any other UI component. For example, you can share and reuse your CLI components in a component hub like Bit (Github). …
