Top JavaScript trends to watch in 2018

I am trying to bet on how many new Javascript frameworks will be released each month. I think, the best developer’s game in the past 5 years. I really think 2018 will be the perfect time for learning one framework for one problem and being able to mix them without (I hope) too much issue. At least before the “next big framework” :-)

Some of the main Javascript frameworks to watch in 2018 are here:

GraphQL:

Brings a new way to query data from server to frontend. You can think of it as a new protocol, a communication standard between client and server. Not only for websites, but also for desktop and mobile apps. This concept of “fetching only what you need” is important and should be at the core of every front and back end development. Reducing the size of every network exchange is crucial, especially for users with slow networks. I believe that GraphQL could become a standard in 2018.

React:

who doesn’t know React in 2018? React is actually not easy to learn, I see my students challenged by it everyday. But when all concepts of props, state, life cycle, actions, etc. are mastered, it is a very powerful tool. It will remain a strong Javascript framework in the year to come.

Vue.js:

we witnessed an interesting fight between React and Vue.js in 2017. Both are powerful, but Vue.js is easier to learn than React. The community around it is starting to grow really fast and we hope the industry will continue to adopt it in production.

React Native and Electron:

Two frameworks for desktop and mobile apps. While they are still not at the level of native app languages (iOS, Android and desktop), their performances are really impressive.

Reason

The new way to write React applications; bye bye pure Javascript! It can be trendy, but I believe that with the support of Facebook it could be the next standard for writing React applications. We should keep an eye on it and watch how the language evolves in 2018.

Next and Now

React has a strong ecosystem. Next and Now are proof of it. Easy to use and make React projects ready for production. Deploying and distributing React applications at scale can be challenging, mainly for  small teams. Next and Now are designed to make a developer’s life easier.

Honorable Mentions for 2018:

  •   Lona (created by AirBnB – https://github.com/airbnb/Lona): Transform Sketch files from designer to UI code: iOS, Android, Web and Web mobile. It’s based on a simple app that can solve a lot of communication issues between Designers and Developers. Trust me, both of them think of themselves as rock stars, and like every rock star, they don’t like compromises. Now with Lona, designers can directly integrate and test their creation easily without bothering developers.
  • Aurelia (http://aurelia.io): Is a complete solution for creating your online presence: web, mobile and desktop. I think it can be a good start for any new project or start-up: easy to learn, easy to put in place and good support.

A Beginner’s Guide to JSON Data-interchange Format

By :
2 minutes, 46 seconds read

JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation. It is a subset of JavaScript and an efficient way to deal with data over the internet. It is mainly used for exchanging and storing data. JSON organizes the data quite smoothly and enables easy access. Moreover, it collects data in “forms”, which is readable for humans.

In the early 2000s, JSON format was defined by Douglas Crockford. There are certain rules for JSON syntax which we need to follow for efficient performance. These include the use of square brackets, curly brackets, commas, and value pairs or names. When it comes to the data, then it is necessary to be in the form of value pairs or name. Along the same lines, commas separate data; square and curly brackets hold arrays and objects. Let’s dig into JSON a bit deeper.

Why JSON?

JSON is easy for servers as well. Since it deals with the pain text, it makes it easier for servers to interpret data quickly. JSON follows all JavaScript rules and its syntax works impressively on the JavaScript standards. Many people misunderstand JSON as an object. However, it is not true.

Although JSON utilizes JavaScript format, it is a completely different programming language. JSON is responsible for converting data into JS forms of objects in order to store them as text. Besides storing data, you can also use the JSON format for accessing the data.

JSON Formatter

The JSON Formatter is designed to provide the best possible debugging. It is independent and lightweight, which perfectly kicks out the issue of readability. The output from this tool is without link breaks, which saves a lot of device space. JSON Formatter is an amazing online tool that supports all browsers. All you need to do is – submit JSON format file and press enter for output!

Prettifying JSON Files

There are a number of free online tools to prettify JSON files. To prettify means – making a more readable version of the data. Many people don’t have a firm grip on coding and computer terminologies. If such is the case, you can use online tools for coding and debugging. You can also prettify JSON using the following keys:

OS X: CMD+Ctrl+J

Windows: Ctrl+Alt+J

Linux: Ctrl+Alt+J

Such tools also help in converting files into the desired format. In addition to this, JSON format online provides you lots more facilities to accomplish complex tasks in minimum possible time.

JSON Format Code

Every software has its own extension for storing data and that’s simply JSON. With this extension, you can store or access the written programming code. Application/JSON is used for the Internet Media files, and for the Uniform Type Identifier, public.json is used.

In JSON, users cannot use functions but must mention them as a string. It is possible to convert such strings into functions later on.

JSON Formatter as an Independent Tool

JSON Formatter is an independent tool that provides a new structure to your coding through easy parsing. However, users need to follow all the XML procedures accurately (usually it’s a three-level process) to get full benefits of JSON coding.

You can also use online resources like jsoneditoronline.org to view, edit, format, and transform different JSON documents.
