Building A Modern Electron App With React Hooks
Back in 2017, Cassidy built herself a desktop to-do app in React, Redux, and Electron. Though slightly buggy, it got the job done, and she stopped maintaining it over time. Fast forward to 2020, where hooks are all the rage and build systems have improved, Cassidy rewrote the entire application from scratch, took out old libraries, reorganized everything, and relaunched it in February.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- How React Hooks + Context compares to using Redux.
- How to organize a modern React application.
- How to build an Electron application with React.
