What forces layout / reflow

All of the below properties or methods, when requested/called in JavaScript, will trigger the browser to synchronously calculate the style and layout*. This is also called reflow or layout thrashing, and is common performance bottleneck.

Generally, all APIs that synchronously provide layout metrics will trigger forced reflow / layout. Read on for additional cases and details.

Element APIs

Getting box metrics
  • elem.offsetLeft, elem.offsetTop, elem.offsetWidth, elem.offsetHeight, elem.offsetParent

Folder Structure

Please note

While this gist has been shared and followed for years, I regret not giving more background. It was originally a gist for the engineering org I was in, not a "general suggestion" for any React app.

Typically I avoid folders altogether. Heck, I even avoid new files. If I can build an app with one 2000 line file I will. New files and folders are a pain.

Adding nodes to a ZooKeeper ensemble

Adding 2 nodes to an existing 3-node ZooKeeper ensemble without losing the Quorum

Since many deployments may start out with 3 nodes and so little is known about how to grow a cluster from 3 memebrs to 5 members without losing the existing Quorum, here is an example of how this might be achieved.

In this example, all 5 nodes will be running on the same Vagrant host for the purpose of illustration, running on distinct configurations (ports and data directories) without the actual load of clients.

YMMV. Caveat usufructuarius.

Step 1: Have a healthy 3-node ensemble

Lots of books, here's a way to enjoy them! Just my suggestion, I found this to be a great way to get into the overall Cosmere.

Cosmere

  1. Mistborn Trilogy 1
    1. The Final Empire
    2. The Well of Ascension
    3. The Hero of Ages
  2. Elantris (This is one of his first books, it has a noticabley different style, but the story is fun and has some Cosmere stuff for later)
  3. The Emporer's Soul: Elantris Novella
  4. Stormlight Archive #1 : The Way of Kings
