React Async is a library without visual parts. Only the DevTools have a user interface you can spin up in a browser. Therefore the development workflow for the core library might be different from what you're used to. Generally, we use a TDD approach:
- Write a unit test for the new feature or bug you want to fix. Sometimes you can just extend an existing test.
- Fix the test by implementing the feature or bugfix. Now all tests should pass.
- Optionally refactor the code for performance, readability and style. Probably this will come up during PR review.
We use the GitHub pull request workflow. In practice this means your workflow looks like this:
- Fork the repo (or pull the latest upstream) under your own account.
- Make your changes, commit and push them. We don't enforce any commit message format.
- Open a pull request on the main repository against the
nextbranch. Make sure to follow the template.
- We'll review your PR and will probably ask for some changes.
- Once ready, we'll merge your PR.
- Your changes will be in the next release.
We use Storybook as a development environment for the DevTools. Spin it up using:
examplesfolder, you will find sample React applications that use React Async in various ways with various other libraries. Please add a new example when introducing a major new feature. Make sure to add it to
now.jsonso it is automatically deployed when merged to
To run sample examples on your local environments
Sometimes your dependencies might end up in a weird state, causing random issues, especially when working with the examples. In this case it often helps to run
yarn clean -y && yarn bootstrap. This will delete
node_modulesfrom all packages/examples and do a clean install.
