Bringing Components to Legacy Code

wes profile image Wes Souza Originally published at ・1 min read

Not all systems allow the code to take over the entire rendering of your app. Sometimes you want to modernize and scale your code using libraries such as React on systems that already have a lot of legacy interactive code, or a CMS that must controls what is rendered in the page.

This talk shows techniques to adopt an existing environment so modern libraries can coexist with existing environments, where the DOM dictates the components it needs.

This was recorded on a ReactNYC meetup, back in September 2017.
