Using RegEx In Visual Studio Code

Using RegEx in VSCode For Powerful Searching

Alex Cassells .NET, Programming, React Leave a Comment

This post demonstrates some of my favorite search techniques that work well in VSCode, including some basic RegEx (Regular Expressions) expressions that will help you find exactly what you’re looking for in an unfamiliar code base. We will cover VSCode file type inclusions and exclusions, single-line multi-term searching, conditional searching, and more. RegEx can be intimidating to people who aren’t used to using it, but luckily the RegEx expressions described in this post are very easy to remember and incredibly powerful.

Introduction to Web Apps with Next.js

Introduction to Web Apps with Next.js

Bob Palmer Development Technologies, JavaScript, React 1 Comment

In this post, I am going to demonstrate how to set up a simple Next.js web application. Next.js is a heavily opinionated JavaScript framework, in that it has a lot of conventions and recommended tools built into its design.

We’ll use Next.js version 14.2.2 to set up the groundwork for a simple web application. By “web application,” I mean an application that is designed primarily to collect input from a user in a web browser and return some output generated from that input.

React’s Unique Looping Tool For Beginners

John Dehan Development Technologies, React Leave a Comment

In the post, I’ll be talking more about the map() function – how it differs from other common loops, exploring its optional second parameter, using mapping in the return statement, and tracking with keys. By the end, I hope you’ll have a clearer understanding of how the map() function can be useful in your React projects.

Please note, this post is geared toward React beginners and new coders. Veteran users may not glean as much from the content.

Top React Frameworks for Enterprise App Dev

Top React Frameworks for Enterprise App Dev

Zach Gardner Consulting, Development Technologies, Opinion, React Leave a Comment

There is such a rich, user-driven ecosystem around React that it can be difficult to discern which frameworks, if any, should be used to develop enterprise-grade applications. This blog post dives into the most popular ones and analyzes which are most suitable for that specific use case.

Before diving in, please remember: the decision of which one is the right one for a given organization or application is very context-specific, so diligent consideration is required to ensure an optimal outcome.

Apollo Client and GraphQL

Apollo Client: State Management for GraphQL Made Easy

Braden Niswonger Development Technologies, GraphQL, JavaScript, Programming, React Leave a Comment

In this post, we will explore Apollo Client integrated with a React application and how it provides an abstraction layer between a JavaScript application and a GraphQL server. The features Apollo Client offers make it a prime choice for devs also using GraphQL.

We’ll begin by discussing what Apollo Client is and how it can be advantageous over other state management libraries. And finally, we will look at some example React queries for retrieving and mutating data.

Let’s get started.
