2015-01-29 Unofficial Relay FAQ

Compilation of questions and answers about Relay from React.js Conf.

Disclaimer: I work on Relay at Facebook. Relay is a complex system on which we're iterating aggressively. I'll do my best here to provide accurate, useful answers, but the details are subject to change. I may also be wrong. Feedback and additional questions are welcome.

What is Relay?

Relay is a new framework from Facebook that provides data-fetching functionality for React applications. It was announced at React.js Conf (January 2015).

// - Listens for PUSH events
// - Fetches the ref pushed via the given remote
// - Sets the repositories HEAD to latest ref
// - Checks out the new HEAD (--force)
// - Install dependencies from package.json
// - Calls `npm run reload` (My app uses this)
// - Calls `nginx -s reload` (My app also uses this)

io.js - what you need to know


  • io is a fork of node v0.12 (the next stable version of node.js, currently unreleased)
  • io.js will be totally compatible with node.js
  • the people who created io.js are node core contributors who have different ideas on how to run the project
  • it is not a zero-sum game. many core contributors will help maintain both node.js and io.js

Better local require() paths for Node.js


When the directory structure of your Node.js application (not library!) has some depth, you end up with a lot of annoying relative paths in your require calls like:

var Article = require('../../../models/article');

Those suck for maintenance and they're ugly.
