NEW REACT PROJECT – Responsive React Portfolio

react portfolio

I re-built my Responsive Web Portfolio project in react for practice. It went pretty smoothly and provided a good opportunity to practice some essential react concepts.

React Features Employed:

  • Split project out into nested components
  • Converted vanilla JS event listeners to state
  • Used effect hook to listen for user scrolling action
  • Discovered react-router-hash-link package that works great for anchors

I may convert my personal portfolio to react as well if I get the chance. For now having this separate project version is nice for filling out the Play section.
