Today I (re)discovered the brillout/awesome-react-components repository. I had already discovered moroshko/react-autosuggest for my own needs, but holy cow is there a lot of prebuilt stuff out there to choose from.
Today I relearned that you should always use the simple option until you need something more. Razzle was dazzling, but fell short. I went back to
create-react-app with hat in hand, and found myself amazed at how quickly everything came together.
I have once again discovered that open source software is not known for the quality of the documentation. Simple things always turn out to be more difficult than they seem, and the examples are only sometimes helpful.
I like Redux. The philosophy makes sense to me, I’ve had good luck in the past, and I’m doing everything I can to avoid getting swept up by new ideas everytime I try my hand at frontend development.
I’m back to hacking on my own projects again, and it once again seems like the docs are missing. So begins the laborious process of finding and filling the gaps.
