Cook Your Own Modal with Styled Components

Lou Mauget Development Technology, JavaScript, React, Tutorial Leave a Comment

I created several JavaScript modal dialogs – I always extend a framework modal instead of scratch-coding my own. I thought I knew the things a framework needs to implement in order to present a modal but did I? There was only one way to find out: cook my own JS browser modal, and that is exactly what we’ll do in this post.

In this blog, I’ll cover a short approach to hand-coding your own modal with Styled Components. You can find the entire project on GitHub.

My Reaction To React

We at Keyhole have been helping our clients adopt JavaScript-based single-page applications for over five years. We have been impressed with the adoption and advancement of the ever-changing JavaScript ecosystem.

Server side, headless JavaScript (Node.js) has led to good tooling and packaging options along with server side remaining available. Additionally, the new ECMA6 standard has turned JavaScript into a viable general purpose programming language, that is arguably, on the same plane as C# or Java. It certainly has a large number of available frameworks and tooling options.

React differs from the other frameworks I’ve worked with in a handful of ways. In this blog, I will show tangible examples of React’s unique features and capabilities, particularly how it handles HTML-based Components.
