Documenting React Components With Storybook

Storybook markets itself as a playground for UI components and its main focus is on “writing stories.”

Storybook uses the concept of stories to document components.

A story usually contains a single state of one component, almost like a visual test case. Technically a story is a function that returns something that can be rendered to a the screen.

Your component storybook will contain many different stories for many different components.

Not everyone fully understands yet what GraphQL is all about, or why it's being declared as the successor of REST, and that's exactly what I'll clear up in this article. Here I'll show off GraphQL's main features and the advantages that it has over REST, highlighting a few points in which both differ.

React and Accessibility
Why should we care about accessibility (A11Y)?

I used to think of accessibility as developing websites for blind people. I couldn't be more wrong.

Accessibility impacts more people than we think. There are around 1.3 billion people with disabilities in the world. The equivalent to the whole chinese market.

There are several types of barrier that impact users on the web:

  • auditory disabilities
  • cognitive disabilities
  • physical disabilities
  • speech disabilities
  • visual disabilities
  • Aging

Additionally, some people might be experiencing temporary impairments that may occur due to an accident, surgery, or medication.
