My First React App

Hello Everyone, this is my first post in the DEV community. I have recently started learning react for better front-end development. While learning I have created this app as a part of my learning.

The react based web app is using openweather API.
Please do let me know if there any ways to improve this app.

So there are 3 things :

  1. when you make your api calls you expose your apid which is visible in the chrome dev tools network, you can pass it like an env var in your netlify app config.
  2. It would be good if you add a city autocomplete.
  3. it does the job so it's good.

This post blew up on DEV in 2020:

🚀⚙️ JavaScript Visualized: the JavaScript Engine

As JavaScript devs, we usually don't have to deal with compilers ourselves. However, it's definitely good to know the basics of the JavaScript engine and see how it handles our human-friendly JS code, and turns it into something machines understand! 🥳

Happy coding!
