SurviveJS - React
From apprentice to master
About the Book
Facebook's React powers an increasing amount of sites. There is a good reason for this. It simplifies frontend development greatly.
SurviveJS - React shows you how to build a simple Kanban application based on these technologies. During the process you will learn to:
- Learn to understand the ideas behind React.
- Learn to design component hierarchies as you work on the application.
- Get into the React mindset while learning to think and manage state carefully.
- Style your React application in various emerging ways.
- Implement drag and drop for your application using React DnD.
In addition the Leanpub edition contains exclusive chapters showing you how to:
- Deal with typing in React.
- Test your React application in various ways.

SurviveJS connects the dots
Headstart to Webpack and React
Omar van Galen
Setting up a cutting-edge frontend development environment with React takes time. What sets SurviveJS apart is that it does not only show you exactly how to do it, it evolves, preventing JS fatigue, hence the name.
Helping to get projects up and running
I originally got this book to learn React, but I found quickly that the instruction on Webpack alone was worth the price of admission. I have followed this book's iteration from very early on, and it gets better every time. It is very useful, and to this day I keep going back to it as a good way to get new projects up and running.
