This Week In React #140: React Labs, Storybook, Astro, refs, Ark, Impala, Docusaurus, Expo-Blur, WebView, AsyncContext...

Hi everyone!

I'm just back from vacations: we catch up with 2 weeks of news!

A new React Labs post now presents React Forget as a reactivity compiler.

Server Components never cease to surprise. Many related innovations are not yet highlighted outside a few tweets.

For React-Native developers, Chain React is a great conf in the USA (Portland, May 18-19). They offer us a 10% discount with code thisweekinreact.

React-admin - The Open-Source Framework for B2B apps

Single-Page-Apps are still the best choice to create admin panels, B2B apps, and ERP systems on top of REST/GraphQL APIs. React-admin is the open-source framework of reference for building SPAs.

React-admin offers a library of 150+ business-oriented components. It's not a UI kit: it leverages the best UI kit for React, MUI. React-admin boosts developer productivity by assembling the best-in-class libraries, managing all the repetitive stuff you shouldn’t have to deal with.

Its strongest point? The best developer experience you'll ever have, backed by an awesome documentation and a vibrant community. And it only takes 30 minutes to get started πŸš€

React-admin has been actively maintained for 5 years, and has already convinced more than 20,000 developers worldwide. Come try it, it is free, forever! 😁

React Labs: What We've Been Working On – March 2023

An official update from the R&D around React that addresses different topics:

  • React Server Components. A nice implementation is already available in Next.js via App Router. RSCs with async/await should also be able to run in a client app. I have the impression they want to unify client/server side model and I think AsyncContext will be great for that!
  • Asset loading: integration with Suspense for loading CSS, font and images (more details).
  • Document Metadata: first-class support for an API for <head> metadata with streaming support.
  • React Optimizing Compiler: no longer presented as an auto-memoizing compiler, but as a reactivity compiler. React Forget has reached a milestone, and they are focusing on integration.
  • Offscreen Rendering: an innovation I'm really looking forward to, which differentiates React from other frameworks. Meta is testing prerendering on React-Native apps with positive results.
  • Transition Tracing: permits to detect slow transitions.
