This is an awesome video out there on Youtube that covers ClojureScript development from the very basics to more advanced topics like building an actual React application in ClojureScript using the Reagent library. The video has a interesting Socratic style where one guy acts as the novice, asking the questions that a viewer may be wondering. The other, although he humbly says that he's not an expert, plays the roles of Socrates, explaining the answers to the questions asked. Overall, I'd recommend it if you're just getting into ClojureScript since it exposes you to some of the syntax, lingo, tools, and frameworks of the ClojureScript world.
It seems a little crazy to think about an application as just a reflection of the data, but I believe it is actually true. I've been building front-end browser applications for a long time, but it wasn't until I started getting into Clojure and ClojureScript (which was pretty recently) that the lightbulb went off for me.
This is a post about my initial feelings after working on my own little project with ES6, React, and web pack. I’ve really only worked with Angular 1 & 2, some Knockout, and of course some regular old JQuery. I was a little nervous and very excited trying for the first time to actually build something with React (I've been watching these pluralsight courses to get me"thinking in React": )
I’ve browsed a few tutorials and watched [parts of] these pluralsight courses) in the past but never seriously started coding in React until I switched my WebStorm IDE to understand JSX. This post is basically a post-mortem of my weekend project experiment with React and the React-webpack generator.
This is a post about setting up WebStorm to understand JSX and work for React projects.
I've been thinking a lot about state and how to store data in Angular applications. Yesterday I gave a talk about unit testing in AngularJS and Angular 2. The people there are really liked the talk, but afterwards I learned that at the company whose office I was at (AWeber) they were creating all their new applications with React. I had seen a few high profile job postings mention React so even though I love Angular I wanted to not look like a fool in an interview. Also, I was curious how React components were similar and different from Angular components. And finally, I see the advanced Angular devs getting really excited about Redux so I wanted to figure out 1. what was so great about it, 2) why I would even want to use it in Angular, and 3) what the code looks like to actually use it! This post is just me getting my thoughts out as I try to understand React and Redux better. Maybe it could help you understand them better as well.
