Starting with React



Based on this amazing tutorial.



Components shouldn’t be in our client.js file — that’s messy!

  1. Create components folder
  2. Move Layout class from client.js to new file (Layouts.js) in components folder
    1. NOTE: Component file names should always be capitalized
  3. Add import React from “react”;  to top of Layouts.js file
  4. Export the Layout class (by adding export default right before class Layout) so that client.js can access that class


PAGES folder can sometimes be called “ROUTES” folder — high level components



Passing values into components

Right ways and wrong ways

Data and passing around data


Data and Props:


this.setState({name: “Kendramadon”});

“A big question in React JS is State vs Props. State is essentially any data that relates to the internals of a React component, but has nothing to do with the outside world. Props are data that the React.js component depends on to function and render correctly.”

State only gets used if a component has an internal value that only effects that internal value and not the rest of the app

Everything else use props. Injected into every other component


Add input field




Everything sucks today

Wisdom from Inspector Gamache

‘People expect me to be cynical because of my job,’ Gamache found himself saying, ‘but they don’t understand. It’s exactly as you’ve said. I spend my days looking into the last room in the house, the one we keep barred and hidden even from ourselves. The one with all our monsters, fetid and rotting and waiting. My job is to find people who take lives. And to do that I have to find out why. And to do that I have to get into their heads and open that last door. But when I come out again,’ he opened his arms in an expansive movement, ‘the world is suddenly more beautiful, more alive, more lovely than ever. When you see the worst you appreciate the best.’

‘That’s it.’ émilie nodded. ‘You like people.’

‘I love people,’ he admitted.
