React devs might find this archived course helpful to reference, but this course has been updated! We now recommend you take the Firebase Fundamentals course.
Transcript from the "Code Tour" Lesson
>> Steve Kinney: So I have an application,
>> Steve Kinney: Called Think Piece, that's linked to in the notes and in the workshop. And Think Piece will eventually be a live blogging platform for all of your hottest takes, and stuff along those lines. And we can fire it up with npm start.
>> Steve Kinney: Give that one second to fire up. And right at this moment, it is a very plain create-react-app application there. We're gonna take a look at the code in a second, but there's not really a lot of surprises in there. But we can go ahead and put in My Fancy new Thoughts on Bacon.
>> Steve Kinney: It's still kind of okay.
>> Steve Kinney: Add it, and there it is, right? Nothing really special, it's baby's first React app. We'll take a tour of the code.
>> Steve Kinney: All right,
>> Steve Kinney: We've got our index.js which is loading the application component.
>> Steve Kinney: Application component right now has just some Component state, which are the two posts that you saw on there, some stars, some content, so on and so forth.
[00:01:43] We can go ahead. We have that handleCreate, where you saw me creating a new post. And we basically render that with a post component that has, we go into posts. You can see that has the AddPost component. I'll let you venture a guess on what that does, and it renders all of the posts.
[00:02:02] At this point right now, Star and Delete don't actually do anything, just the ability to create a post. So again, a very kind of standard React app. If the other files in here stress you out there, they're just kinda presentational components. So we're not writing a whole bunch of UI code as we're go ahead and learning fancy state management and learning Firebase.
[00:02:25] There's just some very basic, like the SignIn component is a form where you put in an email and a password, and there's a Sign In button, so on and so forth. Those are kinda just pre-built for us to use as we go along.
