  • [AskJS] How well received was React's transition from class to function based components?
    2 projects | /r/javascript | 5 Jan 2023
    Interesting about the feedback, thanks for the clarification. In general what I'm thinking of is PR's like this one in React where you see lots of back and forth from the community to get things right. Looking at Vue trying to transition from 2 to 3 and even Python from 2 to 3, it seems like it's not easy. I might be making an unfair comparison here though, I don't know much about those transitions except from what I've heard.
  • alternatives to useReducer for heavy async flows

    Redux with sagas is a great hint to a solution that is only a small tweak of what you currently do. You need middlewares (that's what makes sagas possible)! Contrary to what some may suggest, you actually don't need to use external state management to get middlewares, as you can integrate an enhancer to useReducer itself. And you should be aware that moving off-react state management "updates triggered by external stores are always synchronous" meaning you're losing startTransition powers.

    Anything that uses css-in-js (styled-components / emotion) won't currently work properly: the problem isn't related to emotions SSR strategy as that relates to client components being statically pre-rendered. The problem actually relates to the implementation of these solutions as they do not work very well with the new concurrent rendering patterns of react 18 and they haven't completed the upgrade process explained here: this will be a pretty large fundamental change to emotion, so may take a fair while to fully support it, especially given that next's app folder is still a beta feature :)
  • CSS vs CSS-in-JS performance
    4 projects | /r/reactjs | 22 Nov 2022
    In React 18 and onwards runtime css-in-js libs will have significant performance issues for concurrent rendering, recomputing inline styles repeatedly and redundantly; . Facebook have no real interest into fixing this I believe (I assume it would be hard with unwanted trade-offs). Facebook themselves use a buildtime css-in-js lib(not open source).

    1. Frequently inserting CSS rules forces the browser to do a lot of extra work. Sebastian Markbåge, member of the React core team and the original designer of React Hooks, wrote an extremely informative discussion in the React 18 working group about how CSS-in-JS libraries would need to change to work with React 18, and about the future of runtime CSS-in-JS in general. In particular, he says:
