Enable HiDPI Resolutions in El Capitan | Fitzsimmons Weekly
Enable HiDPI Resolutions in OS X

Works on OS X El Capitan 10.11

Enabling HiDPI resolutions allows the your display to run at full resolution but render the images at a smaller one. In a sense, it works like the Retina displays by scaling windows and programs to appear larger than normal. It is essentially the same as the scaling option in Windows, and it default in OS X Retina Displays. If you happen to 1440p or 4K screen, this can come in handy. This works at any resolution, but isn't useful below those resolutions.

How to decouple state and UI (a.k.a. you don’t need componentWillMount) – Medium
Managing an open source project like MobX gives me the opportunity to peek in many code bases. While doing so, I discovered that most React applications are not driven by the state that is stored in stores; they are also driven by the logic in mounting components. That might sound a bit vague so let’s look at two examples:
Interpreting route changes is often done in components; especially when using react-router. The router constructs a component tree based on the current URL, which fires of componentWillMount handlers that will interpret parameters and update the state accordingly.
Data fetching is often triggered by the fact that a component is about to be rendered, and kicked off by the componentWillMount lifecycle hook.
Although this approach is very workable, it has some downsides: First, we cannot reason about our application state and flow by looking at the state of our stores alone. Secondly, we need to know which components will be rendered for certain routes and what activities they perform when being mounted.
