In Detail

Reactive programming is carried out using the building blocks of functional programming. JavaScript libraries such as ReactJS are used for front-end web development that is both competent and powerful. ReactJS is intensively being used to develop webapps for Facebook.

This title is among the first of those addressing how everyday programmers can take advantage of (functional) reactive programming without having an extremely heavy mathematical background. It starts with the basics a front-end developer can easily connect with, while also covering the basics of functional programming. Then it goes on to explain non-functional reactive programming with the help of a live example. After that it gives a theoretical overview of reactive programming supported by functional programming. Tools to make functional reactive programming easier like Bacon.js, a library like jQuery, are also covered. Finally, it finishes with building one small and one larger front-end project.

Style and approach

A rounded and multifaceted approach covers reactive JavaScript with Facebook's ReactJS. The author's lively approach makes the book even more engaging. Also, with easy-to-understand examples, readers will learn how to use functional reactive programming with JavaScript.
