Building Reusable UI Components in Isolation
One of React's most important features is the ability to compose complex user interfaces from small, isolated, and reusable bits of code known as "components." Isolation denotes "being far apart from everything else," yet while developing these "components," they aren't really far away but rely on the dependencies of your project. As your project size increases, this might cause problems when reusing a component that is dependent on a dependency that is not present in the project in which it is reused.
In this talk, Bolaji will demonstrate how to develop, explore different states, and test UI components interactively outside of your application without worrying about project dependencies and requirements. You'll also learn how to use tools like Storybook and Bit to share and manage these components across several projects and apps.
