react tutorial about Intro to inline styles in React components

Intro to inline styles in React components

5:32 react PRO

React lets you use "inline styles" to style your components; inline styles in React are just JavaScript objects that you can render in an element's style attribute. The properties of these style objects are just like the CSS property, but they are camel case (borderRadius) instead of kebab-case (border-radius). React inline styles allow you to use all the JavaScript you know and love like variables, loops, ES6 modules etc. with your styles. React then renders these properties as inline styles in the output HTML, which means that styles are scoped to the component itself - no more cascading issues or trying to figure out how to re-use a component...everything that belongs to a component is self contained with the component!

react tutorial about Building stateless function components (new in React 0.14)

Building stateless function components (new in React 0.14)

4:14 react

In React 0.14+, you can write stateless components as pure functions called "stateless function[al] components"; in well designed apps, these "pure" components should be the majority of your application and can be tied together by a few "smart" wrapper components that control your state and pass down needed data to the pure components. In this lesson, we walk through the syntax of stateless function components, converting to them from stateless classes, and best practices in using them with stateful (aka "smart") components.

This lesson assumes use of ES6 and JSX.

react tutorial about Use create-react-app to Setup a Simple React App

Use create-react-app to Setup a Simple React App

Organizing modules and components is a critical aspect of the development of any single-page web application (SPA). In this lesson we will look at refactoring the Flux React store into a more module structure.

react tutorial about React Flux: Components/Views

React Flux: Components/Views

9:39 react PRO

In Flux our Components are referred to as Views, but they are the same familiar Components associated with any React development. In Flux, however, we have the benefit of the architecture to keep us from having to pass down through a long chain of children Components any functionality that may be embedded in our Stores. In this Lesson we will wire up all of our Components in record time utilizing the architecture we've already established.

react tutorial about React Flux: Stores

React Flux: Stores

6:03 react PRO

Stores are where the real work in our application is done. Dispatchers broadcast Actions to all Stores, and the Stores registered to listen for those Actions will perform any logic needed to update our Views. In this lesson we will establish our first Store and register the Actions we wish to respond to.

react tutorial about React Flux: Actions

React Flux: Actions

4:37 react PRO

Actions contain no functionality, but rather describe an event in our application. In this lesson we will describe our Actions as they relate to our application. These Actions will then be available for triggering in our Views and for execution in our Store.

react tutorial about React Flux: Overview and Dispatchers

React Flux: Overview and Dispatchers

4:24 react

Flux has four major components: Stores, Dispatchers, Views, and Actions. These components interact less like a typical MVC and more like an Event Bus. In this lesson we will start by creating our Dispatcher which queues up our Actions as Promises and executes them as they are received. We'll also create an AppDispatcher which, unlike the Dispatcher, is more specific to our application.

react tutorial about React Mixins

React Mixins

3:24 react

Mixins will allow you to apply behaviors to multiple React components.

Control React Component Updates When New Props Are Received

3:30 react

The React component lifecycle will allow you to update your components at runtime. This lesson will explore how to do that. componentWillReceiveProps gives us an opportunity to update state by reacting to a prop transition before the render() call is made. shouldComponentUpdate allows us to set conditions on when we should update a component so that we are not rendering constantly. componentDidUpdate lets us react to a component updating.

Manage React Component State with Lifecycle Methods

1:58 react

The previous lesson introduced the React component lifecycle mounting and unmounting. In this lesson you will learn some simple uses for these hooks and how we can interact with state.

Understand the React Component Lifecycle Methods

4:19 react

React components have a lifecycle, and you are able to access specific phases of that lifecycle. This lesson gives an overview of the entire component lifecycle and demonstrates mounting and unmounting of your React components.

Use React Components as Children for Other Components

1:33 react

The owner-ownee relationship is used to designate a parent-child relationship with React components as it differs from the DOM relationship. This lesson demonstrates how composable React can be when using stateless functions to display data.

Manage React Component State with setState

2:28 react

State is used for properties on a component that will change, versus static properties that are passed in. This lesson introduces you to updating state through a simple text input and displaying that in the browser.

Use React ref to Get a Reference to Specific Components

4:49 react

When you are using React components you need to be able to access specific references to individual component instances. This is done by defining a ref. This lesson will introduce us to some of the nuances when using ref.

Access Nested Data with Reacts props.children

1:33 react

When you're building your React components, you'll probably want to access child properties of the markup. this.props.children accesses the innerHTML or nested components of another component.

Set Properties on React Components

2:29 react

This lesson will teach you the basics of setting properties (props) in your React components. As stated in Thinking in React, props are how we pass data around in React. We will take a look at what propTypes and defaultProps do for us in React.

Display Output in React with a Component's render Method

1:20 react

The render method is where the magic happens in your React components to display output to the screen. This lesson explains how to structure your JSX in a React component.

Write a "Hello World" React Component

2:45 react

This lessons goes over what it takes to get React to output simple text to the browser such as Hello Eggheads. This lesson will also introduce stateless functional components. React uses JSX which is a "JavaScript syntax extension that looks similar to XML." While this is not required to use with React, it is highly recommended.

js tutorial about Development Automation Tasks with Grunt

Development Automation Tasks with Grunt

4:24 js PRO

With Grunt you can automate core tasks for your AngularJS project. In this lesson we will take a look at converting Stylus files to CSS, and add a watch task to convert those files automatically whenever a change is detected.
