What is React
The digital industry is developing very rapidly. In this regard, some tools are losing their relevance and some of them are becoming the best solutions for developing web applications.
If we take into account our own experience as well as the experience of big brands, we can say that React becomes a bestseller and does not lose its relevance.
Facebook, Instagram, Netflix, Whatsapp, Dropbox and New York Times these huge global companies have chosen React for their projects and this is an indicator of its effectiveness and strong advantages compared to its other main competitors Angular and Vue.
Of course, these libraries also have their own advantages and features of implementation in various business projects. But we will talk about them in the following articles.
But in any case, React wins the competition in popularity. And this fact can be confirmed by graphics from Google Trends
The main advantages of using React.js in business projects
- Reusing code has made it much easier to build mobile apps. The code that was written during the creation of the site can be reused to create a mobile application. If you plan to use not only a website, but also a mobile application, there is no need to hire two large development teams
- Using an isomorphic approach helps render pages faster, thereby making users feel more comfortable while using your application. Search engines index such pages better. Since the same code can be used both in the client and in the server side of the application, there is no need to duplicate the same functionality. As a result, development time and costs are reduced
- Virtual DOM can improve the performance of highly loaded applications, which can reduce the likelihood of potential inconvenience and improve the user experience
- It guarantees stable code. To make sure that even small changes that take place in the child structures won’t affect their parents, React.js uses only downward data flow. Changing an object, developers just modify its state, make changes, and, after that, only particular components will be updated. This structure of data binding ensures code stability and continuous app performance
