Hype new React API is being shown by Dan Abramov at JSConf Iceland—let's watch it together!

March 1, 2018 at 8:12am (Edited 5 years ago)
Dan Abramov and the other folks at Facebook have been hyping up a new React API they developed, but they haven't talked said what it's about at all. Dan's giving a talk at JSConf Iceland about that in one hour and thirty minutes, and it's being livestreamed!
Let's watch it together:
I'm so pumped, I can't wait to see what they've been working on!

"Oh and render props of course, who doesn't love those?!"
<GetElementById id="someId">
{elem => /* ... */}
</GetElementById>

well hey, some people really love that! React Router has a <Match> component which is basically an if statement in JSX
Did you guys listen to mjackson's react podcast last night? Dan didn't say much but small hints
No, he was very restrictive :P
No I didn't catch that one. All I saw were Dan's tweets. Very curious about what will be announced (especially since Im new to React)
What was intriguing for me is that he said "things that would take me hours to build before, I can now do in 30 minutes." Which is interesting because it makes it sound like a very generic react API, hopefully not something like silod to animation, which is sorta interesting but not for everyone.
Oh wow that does sound neat
is he the first presenter ?
I think he's the second if the schedule isnt wrong
I think someone tweeted the wrong time, mayb eit was andrew clark? Can't recall
looks like it starts @ 11, his presentation
Nobody seems to know when he's actually on. It's either in 30 minutes or in 1:30
If somebody can figure that out I'll update the OP
it's in 1:30, conference starts in 30
also wanna see David's Finite Automata presentation
Yes I want to see the LOTR-scale quest to get UI developers onto state machines :D
(if that's what its about)
smells a bit like the ability to signal to React how long a render is allowed to be pending for, and after that timeout show a fallback UI? or does that functionality already exist?
