  • Achieving an Organized State in your React App with Overmind (Basic)
    2 projects | dev.to | 5 Feb 2022
    Today's mainly going to be focused on the frontend, because I want to introduce this state management system that I've been really digging lately. It's called Overmind, the same team that made Cerebral. Overmind is somewhat similar to Cerebral, but it supports TypeScript and it's... well, it's not abandoned.

  • Functional programming in react?
    3 projects | /r/react | 24 Oct 2022
    A lot of stuff from functional programming are used in react. Hooks were basically recompose: https://github.com/acdlite/recompose

    Specifically to React component design? I haven't seen any since [Recompose](https://github.com/acdlite/recompose) (which Andrew Clark archived in lieu of hooks). But you can still use FP inside your renders, general utilities and hooks.
  • React HOC horror

    For those curious this is the result of using recompose

    There was a time when HOCs where super popular, in particular there was a library called recompose, this is the result of using that library https://github.com/acdlite/recompose
  • Writing purely functional stateful components without hooks

    I might look like an asshole, but that also can save you time on future work: recompose includes withState and many other HOCs
