Hello, I'm Jake Trent, and I'm very happy to welcome you to my course, Styling React Components. React is simply a fantastic library with which to program your UIs. When you're programming a user interface, you're concerned with everything that a user can see, so obviously you're going to want it to look awesome. In this course, we're going to explore together some of the most popular or promising techniques for creating great looking styles and in ways that are a joy to code.
We'll investigate the use of inline styles and try out a library for inline styles called Radium.
Who would've thought that that was an option, right, but you'll be surprised the problems it solves.
We'll have a look at how to write a more traditional CSS style sheet, and finally I'll show you something that I bet you never thought you'd see on CSS, real isolated CSS modules.
No more global namespace for you.
By the end of this course, you'll have some great tools for styling in your toolbox. Your next React project will look better than ever.
Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the React basics. If you know a touch of CSS, that will be helpful as well. Let's jump right in and try this out. These techniques will be fun to learn together, and I'm excited to share them with you.
