For those who are in a rush, we have picked some of our favorite talks that are worthy to take a look at:
MobX vs Redux: Comparing the Opposing Paradigms: Great explanation between the two competing state managing libraries.
Realtime React Apps with GraphQL: Push data and create interactive applications that avoid pulling the server endlessly.
React Storybook: Design, Dev, Doc, Debug Components: An incredible tool to develop components in isolation, helping with the debugging and documentation. Ideal for sharing components between projects and for distributed teams.
Goodbye Flatland! An Introduction to ReactVR 😮: Create something completely different with VR, for example instead of creating an image carousel, you can create a VR gallery where people can move to see the images.
Some noteworthy libraries:
react-loadable: Allows loading components in a more intelligent way instead of loading them all together or by route. For example, you can preload a component when the user hovers over a button before clicking it.
connected-react-router: Connects react-router with redux and keep its state in the store.
react-router-page-transition: Highly customizable page transition component for your React Router.
react-toolbox: Large set of components created following Material Design Guidelines.
faker-json-stream: Utility to generate massive amounts of fake data, with customizable structure. Ideal for creating fake API data.
react-boilerplate: Powerful boilerplate with may customization options. It has a folder structure ideal for large projects and it uses styled-components to style components.
These are some cool developments that showcase the power of React:
parallax: 3D effect with amazing performance.
Create React Native App: The equivalent of create-react-app, but for mobile. It can be used in Windows and OS X and it doesn’t require Android Studio or XCode 😱
