Goodbye, useEffect - David Khourshid

    From fetching data to fighting with imperative APIs, side effects are one of the biggest sources of frustration in web app development. And let’s be honest, putting everything in useEffect hooks doesn’t help much. Thankfully, there is a science (well, math) to side effects, formalized in state machines and statecharts, that can help us visually model and understand how to declaratively orchestrate effects, no matter how complex they get. In this talk, we’ll ditch the useEffect hook and discover how these computer science principles can be used to simplify effects in our React apps.

The answer: use libraries that use useEffect so you don’t have to see it.

As always with talks like this, you are saying goodbye to using useEffect inside of your component code. The fact that useEffect is used elsewhere in the app doesn't change the fact that you are removing it from your component code itself. Abstracting away messy code is good.

I think he got the problem right: using useEffect to declare asynchronous logic is not scaleable. One solution can be to use things like useQuery which will somewhat simplify that stuff. When using Redux you can also use thunks and saga to avoid chains of useEffect calls.

The problem with Suspense is that it’s not fine grained enough. For more vertically stabile less jumpy loading experiences you actually want nearly identical html with additional loading styles applied. Having a fallback should be an anti-pattern for pretty and impressive feeling things. It feels so good to transition from some placeholders to more fully loaded content with minimal transitional animation for only some text and some images.

I think useMemo is important not only to memoize the cost of computing some value, but also to stabilize values as they may be passed down as props, to an unknown number of components of unknown implementation, and in general in React apps they can be more efficient when components inputs are not changing unnecessarily... If it's not a primitive then the usual shallow compare will fail when a new object is created on each render. useMemo should be used as good practice imo.

So I think it depends a lot on the team, if they’re rushed or unorganised it’ll obviously end up being crap because React has a lot of flexibility so you can’t just not communicate and plan as your code will end up being different from the one your coworkers write.

At the moment, yes, but a future version of React might run useEffect some unknown number of times because the component could sometimes get unmounted and remounted automatically. The point is that you need to change the mental model of how you use useEffect so that you never depend on the component being (un)mounted. Here's a good explanation from a blog post I found: "Such a decision was made by the React team, as in the future, they’d like to add a feature that allows React to add and remove sections of the UI while preserving the state. As it requires components to be resilient to effects being mounted and destroyed multiple times, an additional check has been introduced."

Typical web development - hooks come out and everyone is like "wow this is so much better than class based components because we have no this to deal with we can combine stuff logically and no spread it across different lifecycle methods, etc. etc." which are definitely good points.  The problem I see is that hooks and useEffect in particular were glorified like "this is the way", then a few years later - "useEffect can be really bad, even the name is confusing". Then we have another solution to the problems useEffect might bring. So now I just expect this solution to become problematic as well and people would have to find a solution to the solution. But I guess that's just how stuff is, we have numerous examples, like functional programming being an old paradigm and getting revived in recent years as the way to go. My conclusion - there is no one perfect way of doing anything especially in programming, what is modern today might be an anti-pattern tomorrow and it all comes down to personal preferences, marketing of the idea/approach, having good documentation, etc.

people should read the design philosophy in react before saying stuff like useeffect is complicated. perhaps it s not the apps that we build that are not complicated enough for those that understand it, maybe it s just that some devs don t bother understanding how you should use this function and how it works internally and what it is supposed to be

The primary purpose of framework authors is to lock you into their framework. We were able to build systems before React, and one of the most important lessons to learn is that even the UI is just an I/O device and should be abstracted out of the truly important core logic.

When you advice to use external libraries/frameworks to avoid doing something in a library, you know it's a bad one. I've been thinking that class components was a lot better.

The problem is React is a library. It was meant to be a library to create basic UI. UI which works and changes itself based on state. All other stuff like async data fetching, SSR, bundling, routing, etc was not supposed to be in it. It was upto dev to add it however they want. But that of course became complicated, React team is still trying to figure out how to provide these capabilities, while still staying into the relam of library and not turning into a full blown framework. NextJS for e.g. is something I would classify as framework.

So functional components introduced useMemo, useCallback and useEffects and made them necessary for simple, basic component behavior. What are the benefits here ? I mean true benefits, not some slogan like 'easier to understand' which I think is totally not true. I am learning react and when I saw class components they made sooo much more sense to me. They render in accordance with lifecycle methods which is logical, and they don't reinitialize all their methods on re-renders.

Hooks were optimized to attract new generations of developers that had no experience yet, was optimized for them, but it made it counterintuitive for the experienced developers. They should not just throw hooks in function components because is not correct js. We should bind the hooks from outside to the function components like it was when using redux.

@@adrianvmois9426 That's not true, I've been using and watching since 2013. It's a library that's been trying to become a framework for years that's constantly been changing and is still lacking a lot that a framework needs to have. Despite the addition of hooks etc, people still add redux and saga and all kinds of things to be able to work with React properly. It's not a framework disguised as a library, it's a library trying to become a framework. It literally started as just a way to insert JSX into HTML and render that. That's all it used to do. And it still sucks at state management on its own without redux and managing async state without saga. And doesn't even begin to offer a lot of what the other frameworks offer. Some people even think Jquery is a framework, but it's not.

Год назад
@PhilipAlexanderHassialis +32
@PhilipAlexanderHassialis

Oh trust me, you haven't seen the half of it. Although I prefer hooks, I got to miss the simplicity of componentWillUnmount. Like, ok, the component is about to unmount, so I want to gather such and such information from such and such inner components through references, bundle it up and dispatch it to the state. Can I do that in a useEffect(()=> { .... return ()=>cleanup, []}? No, I cannot because my cleanup has dependencies and the return statement of useEffect(....,[]) will run on unmount only when the state is clean and there are no dependencies, oh, and the inner components are destroyed too. When you get to need something that will run just before the destroy cycle begins, you are left with horrible messy ideas that make your codebase atrocious, horribly atrocious. The React team should give a hook or something that performs exactly like a componentWillUnmount, so people can gather data, do any final stuff they want to do and then let the component go.

@@mfpears you are being presumptuous, I am a professional software engineer and I maintain code bases across a variety of frameworks and technologies. Events are by definition imperative.

@@mfpears I watched your video, I feel like the title and angle is a strange approach. None of your 5 examples are reasons why imperative programming is bad, they don't really draw any lines (you can derive state and keep data close to where its used in imperative programming and you the other points are all subjective). A better approach would be suggesting to be more reactive when possible. I like react because I do enjoy reactive programming. But If you limit yourself exclusively to abstractions that follow a paradigm your core language does not then you are forcing yourself to fight against their limitations. My point is there are times when an action can't be reactive, specifically an event. if you want to do something that doesn't depend on state, then to do it reactively you need to make up some state for it to depend on just to make it happen. If you wrap your events in an observerable, it doesn't just become reactive. If that's what you are thinking then I believe your mental model off. Something being imperative isn't bad, its just not always the best choice. When an event happens like a click and you change some state, that is an imperative action, even if you wrap it in a stream listener and use that to derive new state from existing sate. But you def don't want to manually crawl the browser DOM and update divs everywhere manually during an imperative action. Limit your imperative actions to permuting state and invoking effects that are not state based. You can jump though hoops to keep it declarative, or you can write good code that breaks pretend rules sometimes. Re-rendering an entire system because a number changed is a reactive code problem that can be difficult to fix if they are disjointed in the hierarchy and all your code isn't perfect, Just updating the single spot on the page is an imperative solution that its performant and can save the day. There's very few objective truths in programming.
