We, the Arkency team, are glad to announce that our last child - “React.js by example” book, has been officially released! It is currently in version 1.0.

If you don’t know the book - this is a set of 12 easy-to-medium web widgets written in React.js using ES6 and JSX, explained in step-by-step manner. You can check out these widgets here.

With this book you would learn:

  • How to reflect the logical division of your user interface with your React.js implementations
  • How to work with HTML mockups and turn them into working user interfaces
  • Typical idioms of React.js that are used to make common operations in a quick and elegant way
  • Common approaches to managing props and state, as well as where your data should be stored and how you should pass it between components to avoid maintainability hell
  • Idioms of ECMAScript 2015, as well as new features and experimental ones to boost your productivity
  • How to use external libraries like React-Bootstrap or classNames to quickly prototype great looking interfaces

“React.js by example” is a collective work. It’s a great opportunity to have React explained in different ways, highlighted different problems, and so on.

What’s more, there is a repository attached to every chapter so you can easily fiddle with the examples.

However, our job is not done yet. We plan to develop 1.1 version and next ones. We plan to improve technical side of the book, as much as improve our language.

The list of widgets used in the book is not closed yet! If you wish to see any, contact us - we will see what we can do.

Also we would really appreciate your feedback - let us know if there is anything we can do for you. Even if you mean a typo or grammar error. We want to evolve for you.

Of course, everyone who has bought a book will get any further updates for free.
