  • Equality on Objects?

Equality on objects

Two objects having the same properties and storing the same values are not equal.

{ char: 'A'} !== { char: 'A'}

Detecting duplicates in arrays of objects

Let’s try out.

const arr = [{char: 'A'}, {char: 'A'}];
const set = new Set(arr);const hasDuplicates = set.size < arr.length;

It doesn’t work. As already said two objects storing the same values are not equal.

What can we do then?

We can, for example, transform an object into a JSON string. Two objects with the same properties and storing the same values will produce the same JSON string…

A key difference between class and functional components is the fact that class components have a state (stateful) while functional components are stateless.

Stateless components do not use the “this” keyword.

Reminder: React first updates the DOM i.e., goes inside return statement, and then it calls any function that is passed into useEffect().

In actuality, Redux in its bare form is quite simple and easy to understand. But one of the most popular and enduring critiques is the amount of code Redux adds to the app, which many feel is unnecessary. …

Interview Questions?

Q. You might have a form created in your React App that user might try to close by closing the tab, reloading the page or close the browser directly without saving the data (or submitting the form). You might want to prompt the user in this case to alert them that there might be unsaved changes that might be lost.

How to do that in React ?

If you have built a React app at any point in your programming career, you probably have experienced an error at some point that was cryptic and did not provide any meaningful context on what actually happened.

That meant error occured at some point in the application and our React component did not handle the error gracefully.

A JavaScript error in a part of the UI shouldn’t break the whole app. To solve this problem for React users, React 16 introduces a new concept of an “error boundary”.

try/catch only works for imperative code, but React components are declarative.

Action Type

An action type is a string that simply describes the type of an action. They’re commonly stored as constants or collected in enumerations to help reduce typos and because programmers love organization. I’ve found it helpful to structure my action types like this:

export const Actions = {  
// more...


An action is like a message that we send (i.e. dispatch) to our central Redux store. It can literally be anything. But ideally we want to stick to an agreed-upon pattern. …

◉ Closures

A Closure is a named or anonymous function defined within the context of an object or any other function, which preserves and access to the context where it was declared.

In JS, variables defined outside a function are automatically available inside the function (but NOT vice versa) because JS uses “Lexical Scoping” & it achieves so using Closures (or inner functions).

  • In JavaScript, all functions work like closures which literally means closures are created every time a function is created, at…
