React TL;DR #12 – Top React Content From September 2020


After a short summer break, we are up and running again! 💪

Introducing the New JSX Transform

Upgrading to the new transform is completely optional, but it has a few benefits:

  • With the new transform, you can use JSX without importing React.
  • Depending on your setup, its compiled output may slightly improve the bundle size.
  • It will enable future improvements that reduce the number of concepts you need to learn React.

Guidelines to improve your React folder structure

  • On testing
  • Naming your component files
  • Separate your pages from your components
  • Keep styled components in your component files
  • Split things out only when you need to
  • [Advanced] Split up your codebase by team

What To (Re)Watch From React Native Europe 2020

  • Cool libraries to try out
  • Measure and solve your performance issues
  • Testing your application further
  • Getting comfortable with the Native part
  • Getting comfortable with the internals

React State Management Today

What’s Wrong with State Management Libraries?

  • Steep learning curve: In order to effectively implement Redux, developers need to get familiarized with concepts and terms including selectors, reducers, actions, mapStateToProps, and much more.
  • Restructuring business logic: Introducing Redux requires a centralized store and taking the business logic away from React components to actions and reducers, which contradicts React’s component based approach.
  • Too much boilerplate: The file structure and flow complexity throughout a Redux app can be intimidating and difficult for React developers to learn.
  • No Concurrent Mode support: React is soon releasing Concurrent Mode and Redux currently does not have support for this.

Will Next.js Take Over Gatsby?

  • If we consider Gatsby, we can get the maximum out of it if we are using it to build a small-scale website.
  • When it comes to large-scale projects, I suggest you use Next.js.
  • However, this doesn’t mean Next.js is not good for small applications. It supports both.
  • In Next.js you can easily combine static site generation and server-side rendering
