this week's favorite
Programming terminology can be rather confusing. The first time I'd heard about "React Refs", it was in the context of getting a reference to a DOM node. However, with the introduction of hooks, the useRef hook has expanded the definition of "refs".
To introduce React Server Components, we have prepared a talk and a demo. If you want, you can check them out during the holidays, or later when work picks back up in the new year.
Earlier this year I tried using three.js within a React app. It wasn't straightforward, and I ran into quite a few problems. Since then, I've been eager to try out this library a co-worker told me about: react-three-fiber. Apparently, it could solve all my problems (ok, maybe only a few) and make it super easy to create cool animations with few lines of code. Say no more!
The React team announced React Server Components this week with a talk, RFC, and demo. It is a lot to go through (especially for a holiday week), but I did. Here are my notes.
In this post I will list out all the React Hooks I use in a daily basis for my projects.
