So what to do?

speed of feature change

all ports are NOT the same

shrunken team

Fix It?

Spike!

Backend

  • Renjin
  • akka-streams
  • akka-persistence

Renjin

  • easy to setup
  • 500x-1000x faster

akka-streams

  • Not clear who the documentation is targeting
  • Missing some cookbook approaches
  • We did spike a pure stream which was pretty

akka-persistence

  • gives you PIT views
  • exploding mailbox
  • thou must snapshot
  • choose serialisation wisely
  • moving target, but,
  • docs are great

scalajs with react

this was very early

object versions {
    val scala = "2.11.8"
    val scalaDom = "0.9.1"
    val scalajsReact = "0.11.1"
    val scalajsReactComponents = "0.5.0"
    val scalaCSS = "0.4.1"
    
    val autowire = "0.2.6"
    val booPickle = "1.2.4"
    val diode = "1.0.0"
    val uTest = "0.4.3"

    val react = "15.1.0"
    val jQuery = "1.11.1"
    val bootstrap = "3.3.6"
    val chartjs = "2.1.3"

    val playScripts = "0.5.0"
    val sprayVersion: String = "1.3.3"
    val json4sVersion = "3.4.0"
  }

Teething

pre webpack, sbt

 

early scalajs-react

 

scalajs

  • mostly just worked

scalajs

  • uTest was great,
    • but failures a bit weird

scalajs

  • autowire 
  • beware immutable.Seq

scalajs

  • lihaoyi 
  • diode
"io.suzaku" %% "diode" % "1.1.3"

 

 

 

case class Increase(amount: Int) extends Action
case class Decrease(amount: Int) extends Action
case object Reset extends Action

object AppCircuit extends Circuit[RootModel] {
  def initialModel = RootModel(0)
  override val actionHandler: HandlerFunction =
    (model, action) => action match {
      case Increase(a) => Some(ModelUpdate(model.copy(counter = model.counter + a)))
      case Decrease(a) => Some(ModelUpdate(model.copy(counter = model.counter - a)))
      case Reset => Some(ModelUpdate(model.copy(counter = 0)))
      case _ => None
    }
}

Diode - Circuit

// use an action handler to get composeable handlers

val counterHandler = new ActionHandler(zoomTo(_.counter)) {
  override def handle = {
    case Increase(a) => updated(value + a)
    case Decrease(a) => updated(value - a)
    case Reset => updated(0)
  }
}
val actionHandler = composeHandlers(counterHandler)

Diode - Circuit


//the view
class CounterView(counter: ModelR[Int], dispatch: Dispatcher) {
  def render = {
    div(
      h3("Counter"),
      p("Value = ", b(counter.value)),
      button(onclick := { () => dispatch(Increase(2)) }, "Increase"),
      button(onclick := { () => dispatch(Decrease(1)) }, "Decrease"),
      button(onclick := { () => dispatch(Reset) }, "Reset")
    )
  }
}

Diode View

val root = document.getElementById("root")
AppCircuit.subscribe(() => render(root))
AppCircuit(Reset)

def render(root: Element) = {
  val e = div(
    h1("Diode example"),
    counter.render
  ).render
  root.innerHTML = ""
  root.appendChild(e)
}
