Let’s try React!


After implementing the PHP backend working with the Angular front-end, I was curious about other front-end framework alternatives. I heard a lot about React and Vue, and I decided to choose React because of the low effort it seems to require to get quick results. I started to implement a simple page to display a joke slideshow, something close to the original Angular version, but with a slightly different style. The figure below shows a capture of the single page using React.

My website www.relativementutile.fr/jeudemots has been updated. I decided to add a backend!

Before the update, jokes were stored in a monolithic JSON, they are now saved in a database. The JSON format is still used, but jokes are transmitted in pages. Page size is a parameter, it can be adjusted depending on the context. Sometimes we need 10 jokes (for a list) sometimes only one (home page).

An administrator can review jokes online and publish them, he can also maintain easily the website.
