The problem with the TicTacToe application I talked about earlier this week is that it runs entirely on the client side. For something like gRSShopper, which stores information in a database, I need to connect to the server side. React supports this, if course, but how? There are (as we know) many ways. It's tricky, because the extant help isn't always useful (you'll notice that the syntax is different; that's because it's using 'jsx', which is a syntax extension to Javascript). Anyhow, I landed on this page and ran some tests (which worked). I'm still not completely comfortable with it, but it's another step forward. I'm now looking at Formik, which is (naturally) an automated forms creator for React. Here's the GitHub.
