Webinar Preview: “Class Components With Props” tutorial step for React+TS+TDD

Posted on by Paul Everitt

As a reminder… this Wednesday (Oct 16) I’m giving a webinar on React+TypeScript+TDD in PyCharm. I’m doing some blog posts about material that will be covered.


See the first blog post for some background on this webinar and its topic.

Spotlight: Class Components With Props

As we saw in the previous step, child components get props from the parent, and when using TypeScript, you can model that contract with an interface. In his Class Components With Props tutorial step, we switch from a stateless functional component to a class component.

We do this change, of course, by first writing a failing test. Then, as we do the change, we use IDE features to speed us up, both in the test writing as well as the code changes. At no time do we switch to the browser and disrupt our "flow".

Here’s the full video that accompanies the writeup and code:
