A little known fact about me is that I took Wing Chun
lessons for four months back in 2006. A student starting in Wing Chun will begin by learning
the first form, called Siu Lim Tao (小練頭). This form’s name translates to “little idea,”
and it provides the foundation in which succeeding forms and techniques depend upon.
Redux is a Flux-like framework that has exploded in
popularity within the React community. It reduces complexity by enforcing a unidirectional
data flow, the use of single state atom, and pure reduce functions for state updates.
In programming, indirection is the ability to hold references to something, as opposed to the value itself.
In object-oriented programming, indirection is used for dynamic dispatch
The release of TypeSciprt 1.6 includes support for React components.
I decided to give it a whirl and see what TypeScript has to offer.
As programmers, one of the most important skills to have is being able to learn quickly. It doesn’t
matter that you know frameworks X and Y, or languages Foo and Bar. what’s hot and what’s not will change
several times throughout our career, but the skill to learn new abilities will always be in demand.
In this post I want to explore the idea of using contexts in React to
implement dependency injection (DI)
in our application.
If you have not been developing using Flux yet I would strongly urge you to check it out.
In this post, I want to explore a different approach to writing directives in
Angular 1. As we know, building applications in Angular 2 is going to be
different from what we’re used to in Angular 1. For example,
be gone, and components will be the building blocks of applications.
In Angular 1, directives are a way for developers to extend HTML. This means
introducing new behaviours to the DOM via custom tags or attributes. You can
change what a directive matches by using the
restrict option. By default it
is set to
'EA', meaning it works on elements (tags) and attributes.
There’s been a lot of discussion on what Flux is, the different variations, and
how the pattern can be improved upon. I’ve even blogged about Flux
here on this blog!
