Tips for Using TypeScript With Styled-Components

Using Styled-components with React and React Native is great. Where it really shines in my opinion is when you use it with TypeScript and VS Code, getting code suggestions and errors when you write something wrong. In this article, we are going to take a look at how to use TypeScript with styled-components for better developer experience:
Styled-components with VS Code and types for styled-components
Theme variable suggestions using declaration merging
Type checking for component props
Styled-components With VS Code
Before looking at TypeScript and styled-components I want to highlight a must-have plugin for VS Code: vscode-styled-components. This plugin makes writing styled-components a lot better, with syntax highlighting, syntax error reporting, and IntelliSense.

Using styled-components and Props With Typescript React

Styling and building a sleek user interface or UI is a fundamental process in front-end development. One of the fast, high-performance and easy-to-use styling libraries is the styled-components.

Typescript is an awesome programming language built on javascript, although much code might be written for a similar task in javascript the advantages worths it.

Type Checking

Typescript is a strictly typed language and just like Java, C++, C#, etc she ensures you set a type for every variable, function, and function argument.

let num: number = 12;
const myFunc = (name: string):string => name + 'john';

This is a basic rule of Typescript and you can read more about it from her  docs

Create React App

We will begin firstly by creating a typescript-enabled react app, if you already have one you can skip this step.

Open your terminal and run the below command

npx create-react-app my-app --template typescript

## or
yarn create react-app my-app --template typescript

Why Use WordPress? What Can You Do With WordPress?

Can you use WordPress for anything other than blogging? To your surprise, yes. WordPress is more than just a blogging tool, and it has helped thousands of websites and web applications to thrive. The use of WordPress powers around 40% of online projects, and today in our blog, we would visit some amazing uses of WordPress other than blogging.
What Is The Use Of WordPress?

WordPress is the most popular website platform in the world. It is the first choice of businesses that want to set a feature-rich and dynamic Content Management System. So, if you ask what WordPress is used for, the answer is – everything. It is a super-flexible, feature-rich and secure platform that offers everything to build unique websites and applications. Let’s start knowing them:

1. Multiple Websites Under A Single Installation
WordPress Multisite allows you to develop multiple sites from a single WordPress installation. You can download WordPress and start building websites you want to launch under a single server. Literally speaking, you can handle hundreds of sites from one single dashboard, which now needs applause.
It is a highly efficient platform that allows you to easily run several websites under the same login credentials. One of the best things about WordPress is the themes it has to offer. You can simply download them and plugin for various sites and save space on sites without losing their speed.

2. WordPress Social Network
WordPress can be used for high-end projects such as Social Media Network. If you don’t have the money and patience to hire a coder and invest months in building a feature-rich social media site, go for WordPress. It is one of the most amazing uses of WordPress. Its stunning CMS is unbeatable. And you can build sites as good as Facebook or Reddit etc. It can just make the process a lot easier.
To set up a social media network, you would have to download a WordPress Plugin called BuddyPress. It would allow you to connect a community page with ease and would provide all the necessary features of a community or social media. It has direct messaging, activity stream, user groups, extended profiles, and so much more. You just have to download and configure it.
If BuddyPress doesn’t meet all your needs, don’t give up on your dreams. You can try out WP Symposium or PeepSo. There are also several themes you can use to build a social network.

3. Create A Forum For Your Brand’s Community
Communities are very important for your business. They help you stay in constant connection with your users and consumers. And allow you to turn them into a loyal customer base. Meanwhile, there are many good technologies that can be used for building a community page – the good old WordPress is still the best.
It is the best community development technology. If you want to build your online community, you need to consider all the amazing features you get with WordPress. Plugins such as BB Press is an open-source, template-driven PHP/ MySQL forum software. It is very simple and doesn’t hamper the experience of the website.
Other tools such as wpFoRo and Asgaros Forum are equally good for creating a community blog. They are lightweight tools that are easy to manage and integrate with your WordPress site easily. However, there is only one tiny problem; you need to have some technical knowledge to build a WordPress Community blog page.

4. Shortcodes
Since we gave you a problem in the previous section, we would also give you a perfect solution for it. You might not know to code, but you have shortcodes. Shortcodes help you execute functions without having to code. It is an easy way to build an amazing website, add new features, customize plugins easily. They are short lines of code, and rather than memorizing multiple lines; you can have zero technical knowledge and start building a feature-rich website or application.
There are also plugins like Shortcoder, Shortcodes Ultimate, and the Basics available on WordPress that can be used, and you would not even have to remember the shortcodes.

5. Build Online Stores
If you still think about why to use WordPress, use it to build an online store. You can start selling your goods online and start selling. It is an affordable technology that helps you build a feature-rich eCommerce store with WordPress.
WooCommerce is an extension of WordPress and is one of the most used eCommerce solutions. WooCommerce holds a 28% share of the global market and is one of the best ways to set up an online store. It allows you to build user-friendly and professional online stores and has thousands of free and paid extensions. Moreover as an open-source platform, and you don’t have to pay for the license.
Apart from WooCommerce, there are Easy Digital Downloads, iThemes Exchange, Shopify eCommerce plugin, and so much more available.

6. Security Features
WordPress takes security very seriously. It offers tons of external solutions that help you in safeguarding your WordPress site. While there is no way to ensure 100% security, it provides regular updates with security patches and provides several plugins to help with backups, two-factor authorization, and more.
By choosing hosting providers like WP Engine, you can improve the security of the website. It helps in threat detection, manage patching and updates, and internal security audits for the customers, and so much more.

How to Build Trello Board with React, TypeScript & Styled-components

Have you ever wanted to create a Trello-like board with drag & drop functionality? Well, it is actually easier than you may think. This tutorial will show you how to do it, using React, TypeScript and styled-components. Learn all you need to build your own Trello-like board in just a few minutes.

Preparing React app

In order to make it easier, let’s use the create-react-app to provide us with all files we will need to get started. If you have this package installed on your machine use that. If not, and you don’t want to install it, you can use npx. This will allow you to use the create-react-app package without installing it on your machine.

Using npx is similar to using npm command to install npm packages. You just replace npm with npx the rest is the same. One important thing, we will use TypeScript in this tutorial. So, make sure to include the --typescript when you use create-react-app. The whole command will be npx create-react-app board-app --typescript.

When create-react-app is done we will need to add some additional packages. The first one is styled-components. We will use this library for styling the board app. The second is react-beautiful-dnd. This library will provide the drag & drop functionality for our board s we can move board items between board columns, or cards. Like in Trello.

We should also add type definitions for these two libraries. With this, TypeScript will provide us with suggestions and type checking for these two libraries. This will result in faster and easier work and also in safer code. So, yarn add -D @types/react-beautiful-dnd @types/styled-components or npm i @types/react-beautiful-dnd @types/styled-components --save.

///
// package.json (part)
///
  ...
  "dependencies": {
    "react": "^16.8.6",
    "react-beautiful-dnd": "^11.0.3",
    "react-dom": "^16.8.6",
    "styled-components": "^4.2.0"
  },
  "devDependencies": {
    "@types/jest": "24.0.13",
    "@types/node": "12.0.2",
    "@types/react": "16.8.17",
    "@types/react-beautiful-dnd": "^11.0.2",
    "@types/react-dom": "16.8.4",
    "@types/styled-components": "^4.1.15",
    "react-scripts": "3.0.1",
    "typescript": "3.4.5"
  }
  ...

The last thing. The template generated by create-react-app contains some files we will not use in this tutorial. The only file we will use directly will be index.tsx. Then, we will create components for the board: board-column.tsxboard-item.tsxboard.tsx and board-initial-data.ts containing data displayed on boards. The folder structure will be following:

board-app/
├─node_modules
├─public
│ ├─favicon.ico
│ ├─index.html
│ └─manifest.json
├─src
│ ├─components
│ │ └─board-column.tsx
│ │ └─board-item.tsx
│ │ └─board.tsx
│ ├─data
│ │ └─board-initial-data.ts
│ ├─index.tsx
│ └─react-app-env.d.ts
└─ package.json
└─ tsconfig.json
