Why React?

Composition

Declarative

Unidirectional Dataflow

Explicit Mutations

Just JavaScript

Composition

Composition

Composition

var getProfilePic = function (username) {
    return `https://photo.fb.com/${username}`
}

var getProfileLink = function (username) {
    return `https://photo.facebook/${username}`
}

var getAvatarInfo = function (username) {
    return {
        pic: getProfilePic(username),
        link: getProfileLink(username)
    }
}

getAvatarInfo('duggiemitchell')
var ProfilePic = function() {
    return (
        <img src={`https://photo.fb.com/${this.props.username`}/>
    )
}

var ProfileLink = function() {
    return (
        <a href={`https://facebook.com/${this.props.username`}>
            {this.props.username}
        </a>
    )
}

var Avatar = function() {
    return (
        <div>
            <ProfilePic username={this.props.username}/>
            <ProfileLink username={this.props.username} />
        </div>
    )
}

<Avatar username="duggiemitchell" />

Declarative

/* Imperative (How) */

var numbers = [4,2,3,6];
var total = 0;
for (var i = 0; i < numbers.length; i++) {
    total += numbers[i]
}
/* Declarative (What) */

var numbers = [4,2,3,6];
numbers.reduce(function(previous, current) {
    return previous + current
})

Reduce Side Effects

More Readable code

Less Bugs

Is React Declarative? 

... for the most part. 

$(#button).click(function() {
    $(this).toggleClass("highlight")
      ? $(this).text() === 'Add Highlight'
      : $(this).text('Add Highlight')
})
<EricasBtn
    onClick={this.handleToggleHighlight}
    highlight={this.state.highlight} />

...

this.setState({
    highlight: !this.state.highlight
)}

Unilateral Data Flow

Explicit Mutations

this.setState({
    highlight: !this.state.highlight
)}

Just JavaScript

<ul>
    {friends.map(function(name) {
        return (
            <li>
                {name}
            </li>
        )
    })}
</ul>

React Life Cycle Events

Called when the component is initialized and added to the DOM (mounting), and when the component is removed from the DOM (unmounting).

class FriendsList extends React.Component {
  componentDidMount () {
    return axios.get(this.props.url).then(this.props.callback)
  }
  render () {
    ...
  }
}


class FriendsList extends React.Component {
  componentWillUnmount () {
    ref.off()
  }
  render () {
    ...
  }
}

Called when the component receives new data from it's parent component.

class FriendsList extends React.Component {
  componentWillReceiveProps () {
    ...
  }
  
}


class FriendsList extends React.Component {
  shouldComponentUpdate () {
    ...
  }
  render () {
    ...
  }
}
