I'm looking for recommendations on integrating Kendo with React. (I have seen a few existing limited examples)
My team chose Kendo, even though it isn't React native, because the client loves the look and functionality and we see that your dev roadmap eventually includes React.
In the meantime we have to create a bridge between the two worlds.
The main widget we are using is the fully functional Kendo Grid.
It seems there are two general approaches to using Kendo in React / Redux:
- Hook into all of the events of the control and pass all configuration objects and data through the Redux reducer.
- Have the widget inside a React component but use the standard kendo data source pointed at a service thus bypassing Redux central store.
We chose the first option which is working but it is a lot of work!
We are considering if we should instead have chosen the second option - store only the Grid configuration options inside Redux and have the Grid load data directly from a service outside of the Redux flow.
Can anyone recommend one option over the other?
The first option seems too much work now that we need to add nested grids!
Is there any indication yet if the React native Kendo controls will be designed to work more easily with Redux actions and reducers (I know React and Redux are different technologies but they are very commonly used together).
