Is React Translated Yet? ¡Sí! Sim! はい! – Official React Blog

Thanks to the dedicated efforts of React community members from around the world, React is now being translated into over 30 languages! Here's the full list.

Focus Management RFC

This RFC proposes adding a builtin FocusScope component and FocusManager API to react-dom, along with internal logic to properly manage focus in React applications. Along with focus scopes declared in the application, it will take into consideration portals and other React concepts which may cause the React tree and the DOM tree to differ in relation to focus management.


Getting Hooked on React Hooks

This article is a comprehensive dive into the new Hooks API with some pretty decent humor.

While these are valid concerns, it should be noted that nothing in React prevents us from building accessible web apps. This article goes over why that's true.


Using Custom React Hooks to Simplify Forms

This article covers using custom React Hooks to build forms that require half the code to write, are reusable, and are much easier to read.

react-three-fiber - React-fiber renderer for THREE.js
