CRIPT logo

Since August 2022, I am working as a Front-end Software Engineer in MIT to develop front-end applications in the context of CRIPT within the Olsen Lab.

« The Community Resource for Innovation in Polymer Technology (CRIPT) provides a platform for people working in polymer science and engineering to capture and share data. CRIPT is led by a team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) along with collaborators in Academia, Industry, and Government, with support from the Convergence Accelerator Program of the National Science Foundation (NSF) »

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.
