    [–] What did everyone work on this week? (/r/reactjs Friday Checkin - Mar 01 2019) BizCaus 1 points ago in reactjs

    Currently experimenting with ways of writing native RN modules with a shared/portable core (in C++) and lightweight bindings to the platform's host environment.

    Heh I don’t even know how one would go about doing that πŸ˜…

    [–] ITAP of a Giraffe BizCaus 164 points ago in itookapicture

    Went on my very first Safari in Kenya with the family last week and on the last day in the Maasai Mara we came across this incredible scene. This was taken on my iPhone X's telephoto lens with the Camera+ app and zero post edits (nothing I did seemed to beat the original jpeg output).


    Here's an alternate framing from the same scene as the giraffe was walking away

    [–] What Have you learned or accomplished in 2018? BizCaus 1 points ago in webdev

    It finally feels like all my hard work in knowledge building on the side is paying off!

    • Finished a major side project (after working on it for a year) and got to present/announce it at a conference
    • Spoke at 3 conferences and 2 meetups, and attended 2 additional confs.
    • Broke the 6 figure salary milestone
    • Decided to move on from my first job out of school to go to one of the FAANGs

    [–] Everything I write in 2019 will be in TypeScript BizCaus 2 points ago in reactjs

    TS is pretty tight, but every time I try to use it seriously I just end up regressing back into using Flow. I can't quite pinpoint why, but if I had to guess it's that flow is a more functional type system (it's made by people who write ocaml all day) whereas TS I believe is more OO focused (originally made by C# peeps)

    [–] Who's your favorite bond? BizCaus 6 points ago in HighQualityGifs

    For real! I've almost given up just telling people to watch it because nobody ends up doing it, so as a last resort I'm just gonna make gifs of the best jokes from the show πŸ˜…

    [–] Top React Native Mobile Apps in 2018 BizCaus 7 points ago in reactnative

    From what I’ve heard, the entire marketplace UI is React Native

    [–] Dan Abramov explains pre-rendering, a feature of Time Slicing that will be part of the next major release of React. BizCaus 2 points ago in reactjs

    I recently spoke with some members of the core team and interestingly they mentioned that they stopped using the native rIC (because it wasn’t aggressive enough) and roll their own solution via clever usage of rAF & postMessage. You can see it mentioned here:

    [–] Introducing Pose 3.0: New UI events BizCaus 1 points ago in reactjs

    Animating from 0 w/h with inverse transforms is relatively trivial to get working with this logic for calculating the inverse scale:

    const childScale = 1 / (
      parentScale === 0
        ? Number.MIN_VALUE
        : parentScale

    I havent gotten to-0 working yet but as its a single isolated edge case i believe a workaround could be constructed. One possibility would be to reverse the flip operation with a forward fill animation but i havent tried it out concretely yet.

    (sorry for the terseness, currently on mobile)

    [–] What's everyone working on this week? BizCaus 2 points ago in reactjs

    Trying to power through and finish my demo for the Zeit React meetup so I can actually start focusing more on the 'talk' portion 😬

    [–] A 2018 Overview of the JavaScript Ecosystem BizCaus 9 points ago in javascript

    ^ this. Instead of React reconciling its diffs into DOM instructions, React Native turns it into IPC messages (essentially just topic + JSON payload) that gets picked up by the β€œbridge” which translates those into native function calls.

    [–] ST-100x | ~3 Years | Can't remember how many washes BizCaus 3 points ago in rawdenim

    Yeah for sure, I've stopped wearing these until I can get that back pocket fixed πŸ˜…

    [–] A minimal guide to ECMAScript Decorators BizCaus 9 points ago in javascript

    Important to note that this a guide for the legacy decorators spec, the spec that is at stage 2 works a bit differently and there currently isn't a babel transform for it (but it's being worked on).

    [–] Nike+ RN App ported to web using RN Dom BizCaus 2 points ago in reactjs

    While they share the same API, their implementations could not be any more different. The largest difference I'd say is that RNW has a dependency on react-dom while RNDom has a dependency on react-native. Somebody posted this diagram to show off the differences in RND's issues:

    [–] Facebook moving away from React Native? BizCaus 4 points ago in reactjs

    Uhhh the marketplace feature is apparently mostly done in React Native...
