React Design Patterns and Best Practices

By: Michele Bertoli

Overview of this book

Taking a complete journey through the most valuable design patterns in React, this book demonstrates how to apply design patterns and best practices in real-life situations, whether that’s for new or already existing projects. It will help you to make your applications more flexible, perform better, and easier to maintain – giving your workflow a huge boost when it comes to speed without reducing quality. We’ll begin by understanding the internals of React before gradually moving on to writing clean and maintainable code. We’ll build components that are reusable across the application, structure applications, and create forms that actually work. Then we’ll style React components and optimize them to make applications faster and more responsive. Finally, we’ll write tests effectively and you’ll learn how to contribute to React and its ecosystem. By the end of the book, you’ll be saved from a lot of trial and error and developmental headaches, and you will be on the road to becoming a React expert.

Distributing your code

Contributing to the React ecosystem does not only mean pushing code into the React repository. To give back to the community and help developers, you can create packages, blog posts, answer questions on Stack Overflow, and many other activities.

Suppose for example you created a React component that solves a complex problem and you think that other developers would benefit from using it instead of investing time in building their solutions. The best thing to do is to publish it to GitHub and make it available for everyone to read and use. However, pushing the code to GitHub is only a small action within a big process and it comes with some responsibilities. So you should have a clear idea in mind about the reasons behind your choice.

One of the motivations why you may want to contributes to improve your skills as a developer. Sharing your code, in fact, on the one hand forces you to follow best practice and write better code. On the other hand, it exposes your code to...
