In this post – published Oct. 10, 2018 in Torque Magazine – Caldera Labs founder Josh Pollock provides a comprehensive guide for WordPress developers looking to learn the basics of React JS.
- Basic Hello World example with React
- In-depth overviews of concepts like React.createElement and JSX
- Creating a basic, reusable post component
- Bonus: Using iterators with item collections
Josh does a great job breaking down React terminology here, a natural stumbling block for those who may have been primarily focused on PHP development up to now. His code examples are great, though they might be better served in something like a GitHub embed wrapper rather than CodePen, which doesn’t render particularly well in the post body.
