Introduction to Lore: A Convention-Driven Framework for React

Lore (http://www.lorejs.org) is a convention-driven framework for React that is built on Redux, React-Router and Webpack. Fundamentally, Lore doesn't introduce anything new; if you understand Redux, then you understand how Lore works. So it's not "another new thing" in that sense. But what Lore DOES do is integrate support for many of the application needs we're often left to solve for on our own; things like pagination, filtering, optimistic updates, AJAX communication and WebSockets to name a few.

The way Lore does this is by taking advantage of the boilerplate in Redux applications to create powerful blueprints, and then applying some conventions to duplicate those blueprints across every REST endpoint. This allows the framework to provide you with a set of implicit actions and reducers, so that you can perform standard CRUD operations without the need to write those actions and reducers yourself (though you can certainly do that as well).

The framework, while opinionated, is also highly respectful, and provides many opportunities to tailor or completely override its functionality, as well as the ability to introduce entirely new functionality through the plugin system.

So if you're interesting in learning more about Lore, or just want to see what kind of magic is possible in your own React/Redux applications, come check out this session, where we'll be building an application together and talking about some of the development patterns Lore uses to provide this functionality.
