Top Trending React JS Libraries of 2019

You may be a Javascript developer looking to experiment with modern frameworks, or maybe you’re a seasoned back-end or systems programmer, or perhaps you’re new to programming in general and want to learn how to build dynamic web applications. Whether you are a sole developer or a project manager — the foremost thing you want is to keep up with the latest trends around the newest core technologies.

According to a Stack Overflow survey — Javascript is the most preferred programming, markup, and scripting language for developers. Javascript (71.5%) followed by HTML (69.4%) and CSS (66.2%) are the top three most used languages. Javascript tools like Node.js, Angular, and React are the most popular frameworks and libraries for developers to work with. New developers are eager to learn React over any other framework. While Javascript React itself seems pretty straightforward — the tooling and ecosystem, however, can become overwhelming.

Facebook’s extensive and open-source library – React is best for large web apps development. Following is an in-depth evaluation of the trending React JS libraries.

1. Redux

As the documentation states, Redux is a predictable state container for JavaScript apps. Redux is one of the most popular libraries in front-end development these days. However, many people are confused about what it is and what its benefits are. It’s an application data-flow architecture, rather than a traditional library or a framework like Underscore.js and AngularJS.

2. ANTD

Ant Design is a design language for background applications. It is refined by the Ant UED Team with an aims to create a uniform user interface specs for internal background projects, and lower the unnecessary cost of design and implementation. ANTD also liberates the design and front-end development resources.

Specially created for internal desktop applications, Ant Design is committed to improving the experience of users and product designers. User interface designers and user experience designers are collectively considered as product designers. ANTD has also blurred the boundaries of product managers, interaction designers, visual designers, front-end developers, and development engineers. Taking advantage of unitary specifications, Ant Design makes design and prototype more simple and accessible for all project members, which comprehensively promotes experience and development efficiency of background applications and products.

3. Blueprint

Blueprint provides reusable UI components for building various apps. Initially, the toolkit was built for desktop solutions. Later, because of its great capabilities and flexibility, Blueprint was implemented for web and mobile solutions as well. However, the contributors say it may not cater to all mobile apps’ needs.

BluePrint is not just a React JS library. It works well with Angular and Vue. Developers can also use it with other JavaScript and TypeScript languages and CSS markup language.

4. Mozaik

Mozaik is a great library for creating lovely dashboards for web applications. It has customization options for developing responsive layouts and personalized themes. Mozaik allows for grid positioning, optimized backend communication, and also provides an option to use more than one dashboard. Mozaik JS library works really great on all platforms, be it on a big screen or a smartphone.

5. Elemental UI

Elemental UI is a pretty flexible and efficient UI framework for building design-heavy web applications.

This framework is very similar to the Material UI framework but is much more lightweight. It is a flexible and beautiful CSS UI framework for ReactJS. It’s designed to be installed from npm and built into your project with Browserify or Webpack.

6. Gatsby

This is a level up from the traditional React JS libraries as we know them. The Gatsby tool allows developing websites on ReactJS and GraphQL faster than with any other web technology.

Most websites use static generators to take the first step towards a high-quality solution. Gatsby allows extending website functionality, seamless maintenance, and support.

Gatsby websites can easily load data from any resources with special plugins, contributing significantly to performance improvement. Image optimization, lazy-loading, and styles-lining speed up the website automatically, without manual modifications.

One of the most important Gatsby features is that websites don’t require a server to run on. For example, you can host the website on Github or Netlify for free.

Trending React JS Libraries: Conclusion

The libraries discussed above are very efficient in carrying out their specific functions. You can use the libraries for:

  • Designing great user interfaces
  • Creating captivating user experiences
  • Testing JavaScript and React code
  • Generating static websites

Each of these React JS libraries described has taken advantage of the features and components of the React JS framework, allowing for an easier experience during development. You can check out GitHub, for a complete and extensive list of React JS components and Libraries.

MantraTalks Podcast with Parag Sharma: Delivering Digital-first Health Experiences for Patient Care in the New Normal

6 minutes read

The healthcare industry took the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic from the very beginning. It was, and still is, a humongous task for hospitals to deal with the rising number of COVID patients as well as handling the regular consults. 

To delve deeper into the state of healthcare in the COVID times, we interviewed Parag Sharma, CEO, Mantra Labs Pvt Ltd. Parag shares his insights on how technology can help in delivering digital-first health experiences for patient care in the New Normal.

Parag is a product enthusiast and tinkerer at heart and has been at the forefront of developing innovative products especially in the field of AI. He also holds over ten years of experience working in the services line and has been instrumental in launching several startups in the Internet & Mobile space. His rich domain expertise and innovative leadership have helped Mantra climb to the top 100 innovative InsurTechs in the World – selected by FinTech Global.

COVID-19 and Its impact on Healthcare Organizations

Considering the COVID situation, according to you how has COVID-19 impacted the IT & service operations among healthcare organizations?

Parag:  Since the onset of COVID-19, the healthcare sector has been deeply impacted. Institutions are facing a serious crunch in manpower. IT support systems which were usually manned and managed by a large team of IT professionals are not available in the same strength. Resource allocation’ is one of the biggest concerns due to physical and mental exhaustion of the healthcare workforce. 

Hospitals are facing issues such as operational disruption due to staff quarantine, supply-chain delays and sudden decline in patient footfalls, difficulty in sustaining fixed costs, etc. People are not comfortable getting out of the safety confinements of their homes due to the rising risk of getting infected with the virus. Hospitals will have to reassess their future strategy and budgets in light of the uncertain economic situation.

Preparing for the Future

What can hospitals do to ensure the continuity of their customer-facing operations in the wake of a second Pandemic wave?

Parag: There are many things that hospitals can do to manage themselves in this hour of crisis. Being more digital than what they are would be one step forward for all of them. They can bring their IT systems to the cloud so that the person can access data and manage their work remotely. They can enable their patients to book appointments and enquire about services through apps and chatbots which won’t require them to call the reception or come to the hospital. These are some of the services which hospitals can provide to their customers with minimum physical contact.

Hospitals can extend Telehealth services to their patients. Recently, telehealth has proved to be useful especially when there is asymmetry between the number of patients and healthcare providers. I think it will be very useful for healthcare institutions to deploy telehealth solutions to provide medical facilities to people who have so far been outside the benefits of healthcare.

New Expectations in Health Experiences

Is consumer behavior defined by the ‘new normal’ going to change the way we access healthcare from this point on?

Parag: Yes, people will expect a completely different way to access healthcare services from now on. Hospitals should gear-up and rise to this occasion. The pandemic has also provided a new opportunity to adopt a completely different approach in the way healthcare is delivered. They always felt that medical care cannot be provided remotely but now this is happening and people are appreciating remote healthcare services. Hospitals and healthcare institutions are convinced that telehealth and remote care will be more successful soon.

Technology in Healthcare can Bridge Operational Gaps

What are the operational challenges, as far as digital capabilities go, that hospitals are facing currently? And, what steps must they take to bridge these gaps?

Parag: Operational challenges are not just digital challenges. But a lot of these challenges can be addressed with technology. For example, Electronic Health Records which hospitals manage within the premises can be moved to the cloud so that the person can access these records on the cloud itself and need not come to the hospital.

Secondly, if you deploy telehealth and telemedicine solutions, irrespective of where your patients are or doctors are, hospitals can deliver the required care to its patients. You can even extend your diagnostics services to your patients by giving them an application through which they can seamlessly book appointments for consults, diagnostics, or pathological services and resolve their queries, etc. Simply by giving a seamless interface either through bots or applications can go a long way in providing better health experiences to the customers.

Role of Chatbots in Superior Customer Experiences

According to you, what role does chatbots powered by Artificial Intelligence have in the Healthcare CX landscape?

Parag: Chatbots are the simplest example of the implementation of AI-based technology in healthcare. There are a lot of things which bots can do simplistically. For example, if a patient wants to book an appointment with the doctors, instead of going through a complex web applications and interfaces, what if I can simply write “I want to book an appointment with the doctor Dr. XYZ at 4 pm” and the bot can figure out in case the time slot is available with that particular doctor, it will confirm the appointment followed by a payment process if the payment has to be made upfront. 

Apart from this, you can extend your bots to provide e-consultations where doctors can do remote consultations via audio and video features of a chatbot. So there is a huge scope for bots beyond answering routine queries by customers or booking appointments. It does not stop just there. You can extend chatbot functionalities to support functions such as admin, HR, finance, and business process efficiency so that they can provide better services to their customers.

Chatbot Use Cases in Healthcare

Could you tell us some possible bot use cases for delivering better customer experiences to digital health users?

Parag: Apart from booking appointments and resolving customer queries, these bots can conduct remote consultations, internal processes, health symptom checker, out-patient video consultation, second opinion consultation, ordering medicines, psychological counseling & mental wellness, scenario-based risk advice, Heroism Recognition for employees, etc. Also, it can be further extended to help patients enquire about health insurance related queries, and all the interactions between insurance companies and hospitals can be provided to the patient.

The Road Ahead

COVID-19 has forced hospitals to revise patient support strategy with limited operational staff that is bringing every day a new challenge. A way out is to heavily rely on digital innovation.

In India we have a disparity between the no. of healthcare providers and care seekers. Without technology, I don’t think there is any way healthcare institutions will be able to scale to a level where they can provide meaningful services to such a large number of people. Hospitals can invest in setting up an information exchange; making the process as seamless as possible; and removing all possible inefficiencies from the supply chain through technology.

Future growth for hospitals will come from digital technology because patients will opt more for digital platforms. And it is up to hospitals to catch up with the pace at which modern technology is developing. We, at Mantra Labs, have achieved several use cases including hospitals/diagnostic centers that are able to deliver superior health experiences.
