Code Project: the Process
Things that nobody tells you but you somehow have to learn: the steps/how-to to code your app.
That's surprisingly error-prone for a newbie.
And so it becomes a convoluted mess when I try to create logic and the view functions at the same time.
What I painfully realized a few days ago, is that I don't have a good process with creating the structure of my app.
My idea for the future is to be very clear on what the model (state) for the app is. The model change during the process when I realize that the state needs to hold more information (for example a
showForm property to toggle a form view).
With React his can become fuzzy because you can hold this information in
state or in
Then it helps to tackle the UI (HTML or JSX/Hyperscript) and the logic behind it - step by step. I made the mistake of trying to address it all. But it's better to create a very small component (a button, or a form). And go back and forth to code the logic for it (click events, etc.).
It's a work in progress to find the right system for me that is as error-free as I can get.
I have to remember to do everything slowly instead of trying to do it all. Separate all tasks into little snippets and be clear about what each snippet has to do.
