Angular's Evolution: Embracing Change in the Web Development Landscape
Mon, 04 Mar 2024

In the world of web development, frameworks come and go, but some - like Angular - make a lasting impact. This blog post delves into Angular's journey, exploring its rise, the challenges it has faced, and how it's adapting to stay relevant in the ever-evolving tech landscape.

The Rise and Challenge of Angular

Angular version 1.0, also known as AngularJS, was released by Google in the year 2010. During that period, AngularJS emerged as a frontrunner in the race for web development frameworks. In its early days, it was celebrated for its distinct features such as data binding, model view architecture, and testing capabilities. Those features, as well as its support for dependency injection, quickly made it a preferred choice for developers.

Leveraging Feature Flags With IBM Cloud App Configuration in React Applications
Mon, 04 Mar 2024

In modern application development, delivering personalized and controlled user experiences is paramount. This necessitates the ability to toggle features dynamically, enabling developers to adapt their applications in response to changing user needs and preferences. 

Feature flags, also known as feature toggles, have emerged as a critical tool in achieving this flexibility. These flags empower developers to activate or deactivate specific functionalities based on various criteria such as user access, geographic location, or user behavior. React, a popular JavaScript framework known for its component-based architecture, is widely adopted in building user interfaces. Given its modular nature, React applications are particularly well-suited for integrating feature flags seamlessly.

Extensive React Boilerplate to Kickstart a New Frontend Project
Wed, 14 Feb 2024

How much time do we typically spend on project setup? We're talking about configuring installed libraries and writing boilerplate code to structure and implement best practices for achieving optimal website performance. At Brocoders, we often start new projects from scratch. That's why, over three years ago, we created a NestJS boilerplate for the backend so that we wouldn't have to spend time developing core functionality that the end user doesn't see but is crucial for developers. Over this time, the boilerplate has received 1.9k stars on GitHub and has gained significant popularity beyond our company. Now, we've decided to take it a step further and created the Extensive React Boilerplate for the frontend. Its purpose is to keep our best practices in project development together, avoiding familiar pitfalls and reducing development time.

Modules and Libraries Included in the Boilerplate

To have server-side rendering out of the box, automatic page caching, preloading, and other speed optimizations, we use the Next.js framework. It extends React by adding static site generation and is a powerful tool for creating productive and SEO-friendly web applications. To ensure code reliability, performance, and readability in the boilerplate, TypeScript is utilized.

Optimizing User Experience in React Native
Tue, 13 Feb 2024

One day, the company I work in decided that it needed a mobile app. Our front-end team volunteered to help with this interesting project. As we all know, React Native is the best way to start developing mobile apps if you are a front-end developer, especially if you are developing by using the React library. That's how we started working on our WMS app.

As far as the app was growing, we started thinking about its performance checking-up and ways to optimize it.
