👋 Hello Dev!
Happy New Year 🥳
We are 2 weeks in the new year 2021 and it’s winter season in various parts of the world. How have you been doing so far?
After burning out, and trying to get back on track in the last quarter of the year, I am feeling excited again this year. Hopefully, it will be a great one for everyone.
First things first, I have managed to publish two new posts in last 2 weeks.
How To Use Redux Persist in React Native with Asyncstorage
Redux Persist is a library that allows saving a Redux store in the local storage of an application. In React Native terms, Asyncstorage is a key-value based, unencrypted, asynchronous storage system that is global and can be used as the local storage for the app.
To provide a seamless user experience, you could save the items in their device's local storage. For example, when building a shopping cart. In this tutorial, we are going to set up the
redux-persist library in a React Native app that uses Redux as its state management library and preserve the data in Asyncstorage for scenarios where the app is closed.
How to add an app icon in a React native Android app
In this post, I am sharing how you can quickly generate an app icon for an Android app with React Native. We are going to use some online and free available tools to build an app icon and generate its assets.
A GitHub repo I created last year has surpassed 150 stars 🤩. This repository contains most of the examples I've used in blog posts on React Native and Expo.
If you’d like to see the code for various examples, please visit this link. The code is free to use. I will be adding more examples this year, may be do some UI examples, so keep an eye on it.
Blogging For Devs
Last month year, I listed my blog under BloggingForDevs.com trends for React and it reach in top ten trending blogs for in last 30 days. I feel overwhelmed by that.
Some of the blogs listed in this list are remarkable and extraordinarily knowledgable from the likes of Flavio Copes, Kent C. Dodds, and Robin Wieruch. These folks right mind blowing content and their clarity of concepts in web dev world is inspiring. Over the years, I’ve learned so much from them and still continue do to so.
Blogging and tech writing is more than a trend and is more acceptable these days than back when I started doing it. A tip I’d like to share if you are also looking forward to start a tech blog in 2021 or have already started and looking forward to continue your writing journey, is to observe other popular blogs in your niche and study their way representing content, taking a reader from point 0 to 1. By reading other blogs, I was not even aware of the fact that I was absorbing their style and way of composing a post and only after doing it for quite some time, I realised how I am able to write and publish a post that has can gain some readership.
