Overview About Polymer?

What is Polymer?

Polymer is a new type of library for the web, built on top of Web Components, and designed to leverage the evolving web platform on modern browsers.

Polymer provides a set of polyfills that enables us to use web components in non-compliant browsers with an easy-to-use framework.

Polymer does this by:

1)Allowing us to create Custom Elements with user-defined naming schemes. These custom elements can then be distributed across the network and used by others with HTML Imports.
2)Allowing each custom element to have its own template accompanied by styles and behavior required to use that element.
3)Providing a suite of ready-made UI and non-UI elements to use and extend in your project.

How does Polymer differ from Angular?

Angular is a complete framework for building webapps, whereas Polymer is a library for creating Web Components. Those components, however, can then be used to build a webapp.

Angular has high-level APIs for things like services, routing, server communication and the like.

Polymer, on the other hand, doesn’t provide these things except as separate web components from their core library. Instead, it focuses on allowing you to create rich, powerful, reusable web components, which could be used to build webapps like those built with Angular.

What is Polymer.Js?

Polymer.js is a JavaScript library created by Google that allows reusing the HTML elements for building applications with components. Polymer is an open-source JavaScript library developed by Google developers

Polymer provides a number of features over vanilla Web Components:

  • Simplified way of creating custom elements
  • Both One-way and Two-way data binding
  • Computed properties
  • Conditional and repeat templates
  • Gesture events

Polymer.js places a hefty set of requirements on the browser, relying on a number of technologies that are in still in the process of standardization (by W3C) and are not yet present in today’s browsers. 

Examples include the shadow dom, template elements, custom elements, HTML imports, mutation observers, model-driven views, pointer events, and web animations. These are marvelous technologies, but at least as of now, that are yet-to-come to modern browsers.

The Polymer strategy is to have front-end developers leverage these leading-edge, still-to-come, browser-based technologies, which are currently in the process of standardization (by W3C), as they become available. 

The recommended polyfills are designed in such a way that (at least theoretically) will be seamless to replace once the native browser versions of these capabilities become available.

What is Expo CLI?

Expo CLI is a command line interface for developing Expo apps. It also includes a web-based interface (Expo Dev Tools) for using some of the most often used features also from a quick to use graphical interface.

Expo apps are React Native apps which contain the Expo SDK. The SDK is a native-and-JS library which provides access to the device's system functionality (things like the camera, contacts, local storage, and other hardware). That means you don't need to use Xcode or Android Studio or write any native code, and it also makes your pure-JS project very portable because it can run in any native environment containing the Expo SDK.

Expo also provides UI components to handle a variety of use-cases that almost all apps will cover but are not baked into React Native core, e.g. icons, blur views, and more.

Finally, the Expo SDK provides access to services which typically are a pain to manage but are required by almost every app. Most popular among these: Expo can manage your Assets for you, it can take care of Push Notifications for you, and it can build native binaries which are ready to deploy to the app store.

What is Vue Native?     

Vue Native is a framework to build cross-platform native mobile apps using JavaScript. Vue Native is a mobile framework to build a truly native mobile app using Vue.js. It is designed to connect React Native and Vue.js.

Vue Native is a wrapper around React Native APIs, which allows you to use Vue.js and compose rich mobile User Interface.

Vue is a progressive framework for building user interfaces. Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable. The core library is focused on the view layer only and is easy to pick up and integrate with other libraries or existing projects.​

Features

  • Declarative rendering
  • Two-way binding
  • The goodness of Vue ecosystem
  • Compiles to React Native

What is Mezzanine?

Mezzanine is a powerful, consistent, and flexible content management platform. Built using the Django framework, Mezzanine provides a simple yet highly extensible architecture that encourages diving in and hacking on the code.

What is Jest?

Jest is an open JavaScript testing library from Facebook. Its slogan is "Delightful JavaScript Testing". While Jest can be used to test any JavaScript library, it shines when it comes to React and React Native. 

Main Benefits

     1) Developer Ready

             Complete and ready to set-up JavaScript testing solution. Works out of the box for any React project.

      2) Instant Feedback 

                Fast interactive watch mode runs only test files related to changed files and is optimized to give signal quickly.

      3) Snapshot Testing

               Capture snapshots of React trees or other serializable values to simplify testing and to analyze how state changes over time.

Jest is used by Facebook to test all JavaScript code including React applications. One of Jest's philosophies is to provide an integrated "zero-configuration" experience. 

NPM and Yarn Command for Installation.

npm install --save-dev jest

yarn add --dev jest
