Props vs Context vs Redux vs Recoil | React State Management

Hello everyone! I thought it would be interesting to have a look at a few different approaches to state management in react. In this video, we look at the difference in readability and performance of a few popular choices, mainly: Props vs Context vs Redux vs Recoil.

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

State Management: React’s Context API vs Redux !

Modern front-end frameworks like React, Vue, and Angular has changed the way our web looks like today. A maximum of them are using a component-based approach. But communication among the components is an important part. The way components communicate and share state with each other, defines their success story. To create maintainable software by separating different parts of logic and state into dedicated components is a bit tricky.

Passing data to deeply nested child components can be cumbersome, especially when dealing with child components several levels down a component tree. Without React Context or Redux, we resort to a technique called “prop drilling” where we pass data down components even though some of those components don’t need that specific data.

Using React Context

Context in React allows you to pass data to any component without “prop drilling”. Also, it is possible to update the context data from any subscribed component.

We will use a simple example that will help us to understand the main concept of Context.

First of all, we will create a context for user data.

The Boring React State Management Guide

What is State?

I’ll like to talk about how to understand state in a way that helps you make more informed decisions about managing it.

State in reactive programming is data that dictacts the configuration of the application in any moment in time.

In simpler words, any part of the application that is subject to change has some associated data that changes it; that data is called a state. Now, this is where people stop, learn about state, and then after learning redux put everything inside redux global state. In order to understand how to better manage state, we need to know how many types of state there can be. I like to classify state in two ways and then choose the technologies that are best suited for managing those kinds of state.

Classification based on origin

Wherefrom the state originates is an important thing to consider and can be classified into:

**Client-side state: **Any data that is generated and consumed on the client-side like UI state can be put into this category. The general rule of thumb while managing this sort of state is to see how far the components consuming it are in the component tree. We will talk about this sort of classification a bit later.

A good practice to follow if you are unsure of managing this is start with local state and you if other components need it too, you can start lifting the state up the tree. Note: Never put UI state in the cache.

Reduce Redux Boilerplate Code with Redux-Actions

Redux has become one of the most popular libraries in front-end development since it was introduced by Dan Abramov and Andrew Clark in 2015. They designed it as the successor for Flux, with the support of some developer tools and a few more concepts embedded in it.

Flux is a fancy name for observer pattern further modified to support React. Both Flux and Redux consist of similar concepts like Store, Actions (events in the application). In other words, Flux is a simple JavaScript object but with some middleware like redux-thunk. It can be a function or a promise for Redux. However, Redux is a single source of truth with concepts like immutability, which improve performance. It is one of the main reasons for Redux to dominate in State Management.

Despite its advantages, some developers have found it rather challenging to deal with Redux due to the amount of boilerplate code introduced with it. And the complexity of the code seems to be another reason for the difficulty.

In this article, we will look at how to reduce the boilerplate code brought about by Actions and Reducers using Redux-Actions
