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.
