The State of Front-end Tools in 2016, Optimizing your React application and Structor

Earlier this week, the results from a recent survey on front-end tools were published. The survey included a wide array of questions surrounding developers' experience with CSS, JavaScript and the plethora of tools available for writing code with these languages.

Our newsletter this week includes a variety of tools, tips and techniques to improve React application development and performance:

  • The revamped React documentation has some great tips on how to optimize React applications for performance. Some of the simple techniques can go a long way in creating more performant apps.

  • Are you exhausted from JavaScript fatigue? Read a study plan by Sacha Greif to cure it.

  • Autoprefixer is a tool for speeding up your CSS development. Check it out and save yourself a few keystrokes.

  • Drag 'n drop UIs for creating applications is a concept that has been around for a long time. Structor is a drag 'n drop editor specifically built for React applications. In the same vein, React Monocle let's you visualize your React component hierarchy.

Happy Coding!
