#StackBounty: #javascript #reactjs #webpack #lazy-loading #server-side-rendering React Router v5 accompanied with Code Splitting, and D…

Bounty: 100

I have a project where use react-router v3 only for one reason. The reason is the need of server side rendering with data prefetching and the most convenient way to do this is to keep centralized route config in an object or array and loop over the matching elements to fetch the data from the API on the server side. The data later is going to be passed to the client with the response HTML and stored in variable of JSON format string.

Also application uses code splitting, however with the use of babel-plugin-transform-ensure-ignore on sever side I can directly fetch the components instead of lazy loading and the native import method will be used only on client side.

Nevertheless, above-mentioned structure isn’t working with react-router v5, as it’s little bit difficult, since I can’t use @loadable/components, as react-router official documentation suggests. Per my observation @loadable/components just generates the HTML on the server side instead of giving me the components in which I implement the fetch method responsible for server side logic.

Therefore, I would like to ask you the good structure for webpack + react-router v5 + ssr + data prefetch + redux + code splitting

I see it’s quite complicated and no universal solution, however I may be wrong.

Any direction or suggestion is appreciated.

#StackBounty: #reactjs #typescript #redux #react-redux #mqtt How to best store a complex object of MQTT messages in a React App State?

Bounty: 50

I want to develop a React App with TypeScript, which can store and send MQTT data.

There are a lot of (hundreds) MQTT messages like:
config.laser.enable == "true", config.system.value == "23" or config.user.password == "foobar".

So I end up with an object like:

   "config.laser.enable": true,
   "config.system.value": 23,
   "config.user.password": "foobar",

Each of my visual components will use only a small subset of these topics.

My first approach was to create a MQTT client for each component and subscribe to their individual topics, but this seems to be a lot of overhead. So I believe it would be better to have only one MQTT client, which subscribes to everything and stores the message data in a global state.
So my question is: How can I (or shouldn’t I?) store complex data (an object) in a global state in React and making sure that only the components redraw when their specific subset of the global state has changed. Can I use React Redux for this?

Can you give me an example on how to do this?

I am new to React, so please forgive if this is trivial.

#StackBounty: #javascript #reactjs #react-native #listener Update state within listener that is inside useEffect

Bounty: 500

I have a hook called useQueryEvents that 1) fetches all past transactions for a user and 2) listens to the network for incoming/outgoing transactions. In both cases the transactions are passed into a function addActionToActivity that simply appends it to the activity array and updates it in the context state under the key activity.

I can’t get the activity to sync correctly. Whenever the state updates it does not have the last transaction because it’s always one step behind. If I add activity to the dependancy it works but then starts a new listener (due to the whole function being called again with the new activity value) which causes an infinity-like-loop which keeps switching up the state.

function useQueryEvents() {
  const { state: { connectedNetwork, selectedWallet, activity },
  } = useContext(LocalContext);

  useEffect(() => {
    async function bootstrapQueryEvents() {
      // First get all the past transactions
      const transactions = await getAllPastTransactions();
      const contract = await getContract();

      // Now save them to context state via addActionToActivity
      await addActionToActivity(transactions, activity);

      // Now that all the past transactions have been saved
      // listen to all incoming/outgoing transactions and
      // save to context state via addActionToActivity
      contract.on('Transfer', async (from, to, amount, event) => {
        console.log(`${from} sent ${ethers.utils.formatEther(amount)} to ${to}`);
        const transaction = await formatEventToTransaction(event);
        await addActionToActivity(transaction, activity);

  }, [selectedAsset, connectedNetwork, selectedWallet]); // <- I've tried adding `activity` here

Any ideas how I can approach updating the state while having access to the updated activity value inside the listener without starting a new instance of the listener? Or maybe there’s a different approach I can take altogether?

Thanks in advance

#StackBounty: #javascript #reactjs #google-analytics TypeError: Illegal Invocation

We’re running a Create React App (CRA) web app, to which we’ve added Google Analytics v4. We initiate analytics using the ga-4-react npm package. Manual initialization in index.js

This error doesn’t really say much to us and we’ve spent two days trying to find out if anyone’s run into a problem like this, but so far we’ve come up empty. It also doesn’t seem to affect user experience, but it’s rather annoying for us to monitor.

The error is reported as so to Sentry.

We also receive as many errors from ga-4-react (the catch-block in the code snippet above). We also tried using the analytics snippet with react-helmet, but had the same result.

This error seems to be generated by a number of browsers (Chrome, Opera, Safari, mobile browsers) on many platforms (Android, Windows 10, OS X) so we can’t really pinpoint any specific route, platform, browser that’s common with these users.

I also tried to replicate this with AdBlock, blocking trackers, using Do Not Track, but nothing.

#StackBounty: #reactjs #webpack #html-webpack-plugin Smart way to handle bundle splitting in React Project

Bounty: 50

My Requirement:
I want to split the main bundle into smaller multiple bundles. When I load a particular page only the bundle associated with that page should get loaded rather than loading all the bundles.

What I have tried:
I tried using html-webpack-plugin to create index.html with multiple bundles used in webpack.

  1. https://medium.com/a-beginners-guide-for-webpack-2

I have split entire website functionality in few modules and i have used lazy-loading in my router.js

What Issue I am facing:
I can see 30bundle getting created but on every page load all the 30bundles load.

WEBPACK: I have pasted only html-webpack changes

var HtmlWebpackPlugin = require("html-webpack-plugin");
plugins: [
new HtmlWebpackPlugin({
            filename: "./src/main/webapp/index.html" //relative to root of the application

Can anyone suggest what approach I should check/follow?

#StackBounty: #javascript #python #reactjs #django #digital-ocean How to correctly serve my React production build through Django. Curr…

Bounty: 150

I’m trying to deploy my react/django web-app to a linux-VM droplet. I’m not using a webpack for the JS content. Instead, I’m serving npm run build static files through a CDN sub-domain, digital ocean s3 bucket.

I’m able to python manage.py collectstatic which then pushes my react production build folder to the CDN.

When I visit my production website, it currently just loads up a blank page with these console errors:

Refused to apply style from 'https://www.my_website_URL.com/static/css/main.ce8d6426.chunk.css' because its MIME type ('text/html') is not a supported stylesheet MIME type, and strict MIME checking is enabled.

Refused to execute script from 'https://www.my_website_URL.com/static/js/2.ca12ac54.chunk.js' because its MIME type ('text/html') is not executable, and strict MIME type checking is enabled.

Refused to execute script from 'https://www.my_website_URL.com/static/js/main.220624ac.chunk.js' because its MIME type ('text/html') is not executable, and strict MIME type checking is enabled.

There aren’t any network errors that provide any useful information for this matter.

The issue has to be server side (django)… I think.

Project set up:

enter image description here

The react production build is inside my core django folder.

Here is how I link my React through django:

core urls.py

def render_react(request):
    return render(request, "index.html") 
    #index.html being created by react, not django templates 
urlpatterns = [
   re_path(r"^$", render_react),
   re_path(r"^(?:.*)/?$", render_react),

      manifest.json provides metadata used when your web app is installed on a
      user's mobile device or desktop. See https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/web-app-manifest/

      Notice the use of %PUBLIC_URL% in the tags above.
      It will be replaced with the URL of the `public` folder during the build.
      Only files inside the `public` folder can be referenced from the HTML.

      Unlike "/favicon.ico" or "favicon.ico", "%PUBLIC_URL%/favicon.ico" will
      work correctly both with client-side routing and a non-root public URL.
      Learn how to configure a non-root public URL by running `npm run build`.
