Libraries to use with React in 2017


Libraries to use with React in 2017

I'm starting to take a look at React and I was looking for recommendations on other libraries to combine it with e.g. Redux, router, bootstrap, jest.

I'd looked at React about 12 months ago but JS libraries move so fast (JS fatigue) that I was interested what others recommend.

Best tutorials for framework beginners?


Best tutorials for framework beginners?

I've been working with js for a few years now, using mostly jquery and sencha, but I want to get into the world of modern development. I tried starting with react and got really lost quickly on the tutorials I tried. They got into stuff like webpack and babel really quick and it seemed the current versions of those had changed stuff and broke the tutorial. I think. I might have made a mistake but I couldn't figure it out. So I moved on and tried Aurelia. I made their demo apps and I liked how the stuff fit together. I then moved on and began trying to make something on my own and got stuck quickly. I wasn't a huge fan of their documentation, and there just wasn't enough googleable material to help me going forward, which is a shame because I really liked how the HTML and JavaScript was separated. It made a lot of sense to me.

I kinda liked how back in the day you just included a CDN link and off you went. These new cli tools are really intimidating and there's just so much to take in.

I want to get into the modern frameworks like React(and I think redux to go with it), Angular2 or Vue. Can anyone point me to some tutorials or series to get started?

Right structure for Luminus web application for monolith/micro services


Right structure for Luminus web application for monolith/micro services

I am writing a Luminus web app for a new system. The system will initially be a monolith but parts of it may need to be separated later and I would like to start with an architecture that allows me to do so, even if it is because it will really enforce separation of concerns.

The way I can see this working is by creating separate namespaces/modules/whatever per functional section (EG. users) and keeping them completely isolated but then importing into the main application so they can be mapped to external REST endpoints.

Then, as scaling requirements happen, I will be able to pull off those modules into separate services that I can call.

I am thinking that exposing 2 APIs user/client and user/local-client with the same signature and then changing the ns import to map to the same one (as "user-client") would then abstract those. Is it possible to do that at runtime? I am assuming that by using macros and configuration it would be possible but I am not that advanced.

A separate advantage of doing it this way is that I can have a 'monolith' for development (my laptop is not THAT powerful) and then deploy as multiple services if required, just by changing configuration (build or runtime).

Is this a stupid idea?

What would be the 'Clojure way' of doing this?
