۱۲ Practical tools for developers using React

React is a powerful Javascript library for building attractive user interfaces. Powerful, indexing tools are provided to build the React development experience that some developers are unfamiliar with. 

In this article we are going to introduce you to some of the most interesting tools.

1. Webpack Bundle Analyzer

Webpack Bundle Analyzer helps you if you want to know what packages or parts of an application consume a lot of space. The tool helps developers identify which files take up a lot of space.

The above tool looks like a server that shows how to bundle elements by providing a hierarchical visual view.

The tool above shows where the files are located, the size of the gzip files, and how they are inherited (their parents and children). The tool above allows you to optimize the React application based on what you see.

You can see in the figure below that PDF packets occupy the most application space because they have the most page space.

Developers can add more features to the tool above to make the details visible. For example, the generateStatsFile: true option allows you to create a static HTML file outside the development environment and view its details.

2. React-Proto

React-Proto is a tool for building prototypes. The above tool is a desktop-based software that needs to be downloaded and installed on the system.

The following figure shows the interface of the above tool. The tool allows developers to view props and types of notifications, view the workspace in a tree, import a background image, define possible unit components, zoom in and out, and prototype a new project. Or projects underway.

This tool works well for both Windows and Mac developers. Once the developer completes the UI drawing process, he or she can add the UI to the project in progress or to a new project.

 If the sample is to be executed in the project and the root directory is selected, the sample will be sent to the / src / components directory. The figure below illustrates this.

The following figure shows an overview of the components in the example above.

Reac-Proto is one of the most popular GitHub projects, but it still has work to do to become a viable tool.

3. Why Did You Render

The Why Did You Render tool is actually a patch for React that works when you don’t decide to run a re-process. An efficient tool that helps developers improve project performance while improving react performance.

Developers using the above tool can attach a listener to any custom component by declaring an extra static attribute that whyDidiYouRender has a turn value. The figure below illustrates this.

When the above process is complete, the developer will see a lot of alert messages in the browser console.

These warning messages can be avoided for editing redundant processes.

4. Create React App

The Create React App provides the fastest way to start developing a React project and provides developers with up-to-date capabilities. The following is a simple example of running an efficient React App-based command.

npx create-react-app <name>

Interestingly, it is also possible to use the above command to build a TypeScript project. All you have to do is add the -typescript switch to the bottom of the snippet above:

npx create-react-app <name> – typescript

As you can see, the above tool allows you to easily add TypeScript to built projects in the simplest way.

5. React Lifecycle Visualizer

React Lifecycle Visualizer is an npm package for tracking and visualizing the status of various React components.

 When using the tool above, similar to the case of Why Did You Render, it is possible to select any component and insert it into the lifecycle visualization cycle. The figure below illustrates this.

The code snippet shown above provides an visualization as follows:

Of course, the tool only supports class components, so it doesn’t do anything with the hooks.

6. Guppy

Guppy is a desktop-based React and Simple task management tool for React. The tool is mostly applicable to people who are newly acquainted with the React world, although professional developers are also able to use it.

The tool provides a flexible graphical user interface that allows developers to avoid wasting time on some of the usual repetitive tasks.

 This tool tries to save time by building new projects, executing tasks, and managing dependencies. It should be noted that the above tool is multi-platform and as a result the developers of different operating systems are able to use it. The following figure shows the interface of the above tool.

7. react-testing-library

React-testing-library is one of the popular tools associated with react because it helps them a lot when developers need to write single tests. The above library provides a set of React Dom test tools that allow developers to select the appropriate test methods.

The tool allows developers to focus the single test process on the input / output of the React components that the user interacts with, thereby solving the problem of testing the implemented details. With this solution, developers can make sure how they get the data they need from the components and which methods they should use.

 Note that if the implementation method changes and the application uses a different database, the unit tests will fail because the implementation details are in line with the program logic.

 The above problem has been fixed by the react-testing-library library, as we would expect the interface to function properly. The following image shows how to implement the tests using the above library.

8. React Developer Tools

React Developer Tools is an add-on for Chrome and Firefox browsers that enables React components to be inspected hierarchically. The plugin is one of the most efficient tools that any developer should be familiar with, as it allows for debugging applications.

9. Bit

Bit is a good alternative to component libraries like Material-UI or Semantic UI React. The Bit allows you to explore a large number of open source components and use them to build your own projects. The following figure shows the interface of the above tool.

Lots of components, such as tabs, buttons, charts, navigation bars,

drop-down menus, animated icons, date markers, layers, and so on, are practically available to developers. Interestingly, these components are provided by React Design itself.

10. Storybook

If you would like to have less hassle when developing user interface components, we recommend using Storybook .

The tool provides a deployment server that supports an instant reload approach and allows the React components to be deployed simultaneously and independently. The above tool is flexible and allows use on existing extensions.

For example,

using the Storybook README package it is possible to build README documentation

when developing React components for production environments on the same design page. The figure below illustrates this.

11. React Sight

Have you ever thought that your program would look like a flowchart? If you think of such an idea, React Sight offers the ability to visualize React applications by providing a hierarchical tree arranged with live components of an application.

The library supports Redux, react-router and React Fiber. React Sight allows developers to move to nodes that are directly related to components.

 If it’s hard to see the results, just type chrome: extensions into the Chrome browser bar and look for the React Sight box and then click the Allow access to file URLS switch.

12. React Cosmos

React Cosmos is a powerful development tool for the React components reuse approach. The project scans components and features such as component processing with any combination of props, context, state, simulating any external dependencies such as programming interface reactions, localStorage, etc., viewing real-time program state changes, and more. Provides.
