It's all about time: Building a performant Stopwatch with MobX and React - fast

MobX React Stopwatch

In recent posts we spoke a lot about developing React applications with Redux: It enables the users to easily make testable and structured applications. However, writing a Redux application produces a lot of boilerplate code. One framework alternative is MobX, which solves this problem by doing automation using observables.

Time Travel in React Redux apps using the Redux DevTools

Time Travel with the Redux DevTools

In the previous article we showed how to create a simple drawing application with React and manage the state of the app with a Redux store. Now we will talk about how to integrate the Redux DevTools to enable easy debugging and time travel.

The Redux DevTools records dispatched actions and the state of the Redux store at every point in time. This makes it possible to inspect the state and travel back in time to a previous application state without reloading the page or restarting the app.

Building a Calculator App with Redux and Onsen UI

Redux and Onsen UI

There are many frameworks and concepts around in the JavaScript world. In today’s blog post we are going to write a pure mobile JavaScript application with Onsen UI and Redux, which is a very small but powerful library that enables to write JavaScript applications in a conceptually different way.

Redux is inspired by Flux, which was developed by Facebook. Unlike Flux, Redux is quite flexible and does not require any specific infrastructure like GraphQL. We will use Redux in combination with Onsen UI to build a simple Calculator mobile app. One of the nicest things about this app is that it will look native, both on Android and iOS, due to Onsen’s autostyle feature.
