React

Building web app interface in a reactive and highly responsive way

How does it work?

React.js is a Facebook library with a strong community all over the world. A great number of big products runs on React, including Netflix, PayPal, Imgur, Walmart, and Facebook.

One of React’s features is JSX, which allows mixing JS and HTML together. The advantage of that is highly responsive, easily scalable UI. Component approach for building interfaces helps to keep code clear, readable, short, and smart. It operates on virtual DOM which is updated after every app state mutation, basing behavior on state changes. Thanks to that the app works smooth and responsive. React is a library, not a framework, and it provides tools which can be used in your own way without fitting into any bigger pattern. It means that anybody with knowledge about JavaScript can learn React very fast. Also, you can easily extend tools range with 3rd party react-dedicated libraries.

Main advantages of React

Scalability

    With a growing number of users, additional features and integrations being implemented, your app needs to be able to process more and more data. If pure JavaScript qualities are not enough to manage the increasing demand you observe, React Boilerplate and other starter kits have your back.

Component approach

    React apps are made of small components. When needed, each and every one of them may be reused, enabling higher performance and efficiency. Expanding and customizing elements result in a flexible and wide-ranging project solution.

Responsiveness

    React responds swiftly to the needs of users and their devices, aiming at rapid adjustment of web content to mobile devices. Responsive libraries in React do not impose the tough choice between functionality and convenience but let the components fully bloom with inline styles.

Ease of use

    React is easy to learn to the point of JavaScript users being able to use it within days, especially when backed by widely available tutorials. Due to React being deep-seated in the community, it is easy to stay up-to-date with novelties by following core and libraries? developers.
