React Design Patterns and Best Practices. - Second Edition

Overview of this book

React is an adaptable JavaScript library for building complex UIs from small, detached bits called components. This book is designed to take you through the most valuable design patterns in React, helping you learn how to apply design patterns and best practices in real-life situations. You’ll get started by understanding the internals of React, in addition to covering Babel 7 and Create React App 2.0, which will help you write clean and maintainable code. To build on your skills, you will focus on concepts such as class components, stateless components, and pure components. You'll learn about new React features, such as the context API and React Hooks that will enable you to build components, which will be reusable across your applications. The book will then provide insights into the techniques of styling React components and optimizing them to make applications faster and more responsive. In the concluding chapters, you’ll discover ways to write tests more effectively and learn how to contribute to React and its ecosystem. By the end of this book, you will be equipped with the skills you need to tackle any developmental setbacks when working with React. You’ll be able to make your applications more flexible, efficient, and easy to maintain, thereby giving your workflow a boost when it comes to speed, without reducing quality.

At this point, you will need to invest some money to get this service. I will show you the cheapest way to do this, and if in the future you want to increase the power of your Droplets, you will be able to increase the capacity without redoing the configuration. The lowest price for the very basic Droplet is $5.00 per month ($0.007 per hour).

The latest LTS version of Ubuntu is 18.04; you will need to know some basic Linux commands to be able to configure your Droplet. If you're a beginner using Linux...
