React Tooling

Create React App:

  • can select package manager (–use-npm). By default is using yarn as it is also a facebook project
  • has templates (–template typescript / find templates:*)
    • cra-template-redux (for Redux)
    • cra-template-typescript (for Typescript)
  • npm start = yarn start

Lot of boilerplates but some are really notable:

Immediately-invoked Function Expressions (IIFE)

We can assign to a variable a value that’s of function type. The function on the right-hand side of the assignment operator is called a “function expression”. We can have anonymous function expressions; without name. When we don’t have an assignment, we can also force a function to be treated as an expression in a lot of ways: prefixing with void or anything else before function keyword; quite often we just put parentheses.

JavaScript Basics

Q: Class vs Object? A: Class is a template for objects and Object is an “instance” of a class. Syntactically we use commas to separate properties and methods in Objects, but in Classes we don’t need them.

Q: Then, what is Object Prototype vs Class? A: Class defines object type which will be instantiated at runtime. Object prototype is itself an object instance already. Therefore, a prototypal inheritance: a prototype is a working object instance and objects inherit directly from other objects.
