Developer’s Road Map for React JS

The main objective of this map is to guide you about the path and the requirements, and helps in picking up what is and cool and trendy. One should also understand why one of the tools is important and not the other, it does not mean that the other tool is not important, but important does not always mean that it’s best suited for the job.

1.      Basics- Learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and one should have the basic knowledge of JAVA Script


2.     Development Skills- Learn and know HTTP(S) protocol, request methods (GET, POST, PUT, PATCH, DELETE, OPTIONS), learn and go through algorithms and data structure and design patterns, one can refer books and can also use search engines.

  1. Learn React on the official website.
  2. Get familiar with tools that you will be using
    1. Package Managers

                                                    i.     npm

                                                  ii.     yarn

                                                iii.     pnpm

    1. Task Runners

                                                    i.     npm scripts

                                                  ii.     gulp

  1. Styling- Styling in React applications describes how React components or its elements are displayed on a screen or any other media for the users. The purpose of building frontend user interface with React is, its flexibility  to build these interfaces especially as components and also style them to give us a great look and experience. There are various strategies to follow when planning to style React components


  1. State Management- State management means the management of the state of one or more user interfaces controls such as text fields, OK buttons, radio buttons, etc. in a graphical user interface. React components has a built-in state object. The state object is where you store property values that belong to the component. When the state object changes, the component re-renders.


4.     Type Checkers- As the application grows, the type checkers which is inbuilt properties which   itself identify certainly type of problems even before the developer runs the code, It also         improves the developer workflow by adding auto-completion  feature.


  1. Form Helpers- react-form-helper accept custom components for form, input, and button, which makes it easy to use with libraries such as react-toolbox and react-mdl.


  1. Routing- React Router is the standard routing library for React. ... “React Router keeps your UI in sync with the URL. It has a simple API with powerful features like lazy code loading, dynamic route matching, and location transition handling built right in. Make the URL your first thought, not an after-thought.


  1. API Clients-Application programming interface, it provides interaction between one software and another, but not with users. REST and GraphQL are some of the APIs that can be used to react. There are various methods through which the API can be consumed.


  1. Utility Libraries- Below is the list of some of the important react libraries that will make the life of developers easy. Below is the list of libraries which developer should know while using react.


  1. Testing- The testing of react components can be done in a similar way it is done for other JavaScript codes. It is mainly differentiated into two categories

a)Unit Testing-is a simplified test environment, which focuses on the output.

b) End to End Testing-Wherein the application is tested in a realistic environment.

  1. Internationalization-The process of design and development of application in such a way that it can be easily readable and usable by all kinds of people across the world. React and i18next helps in localizing app content


  1. Server Side Rendering- The browser downloads a minimal HTML page when we request anything, at the client-side It provides the JavaScript and fills the content into it, Whereas in Server-side rendering, it downloads the React components on the server


  1. Static Site Generator- React-Static is a fast, lightweight, and powerful progressive static site generator based on React and its ecosystem. It resembles the simplicity and developer experience you're used to in tools


  1. Backend Framework Integration-It could be integrated with any kind of backend; one could be using Python/Flask, Ruby on Rails, Java/Spring, PHP, etc.


  1. Mobile-It helps the developers to build applications for mobile like it was built never before. Some of its benefits is one-way data flow, easy component lifecycle methods, declarative components, and many more.


  1. Desktop-Reactjs allows the user to move the apps across PC, Xbox, Surface tablets, and dual screen, it also supports macOS.


  1. Virtual reality lets users experience real-like, and among technologies and platforms that help to render virtual reality experiences through web and mobile applications, React 360 is one of the most widely used.
