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.

In this chapter, we learned a great deal about how JSX works and how to use it in the right way in our components. We started from the basics of the syntax to create a solid knowledge base that will enable us to master JSX and its features.

In the second part, we looked at how ESLint and its plugins can help us find problems faster and enforce a consistent style guide across our code base.

Finally, we went through the basics of functional programming to understand the important concepts to use when writing a React application.

Now that our code is clean, we are ready to start digging deeper into React and learn how to write truly reusable components.
