React JS

React JS

Fast and effective software development requires choosing the right technology stack. React is one of the most often chosen libraries for building user interfaces for websites and applications. Once it was created by Facebook in 2013, it set a new precedent for developing fast and dynamic applications. Since then, React services are on a roll and the trend doesn’t seem to end soon. The library is free and open-source and for most developers, it is a must in any tech stack. React is used by many industry leaders like Netflix, Twitter, and Airbnb. For us, website and application development with React is a great choice from a business standpoint.

Why should you use React? Let’s start with a quick explanation of why to use React in your software development process.

React is currently the most popular JavaScript library and here is why:

Reason 1

React has a large and robust development community of developers who develop new solutions and tools regularly. Thus, you can easily reach out to React experts who will help you solve any problem.

Reason 2

React provides developers with efficient debugging and error-checking. This is mainly thanks to the unidirectional data binding which provides you with higher control over the data access of components.

Reason 3

It is SEO friendly. It reduces the load time of websites which helps businesses to load on the top spot on Google’s Search Engine Result Page.

Reason 4

Just like Vue.js, React offers independent, reusable components (bits of code). You can reuse them in different parts of your application. As a result, you can reduce development effort while still maintaining flawless performance.

Reason 5

Similarly to Vue,js, it offers virtual DOMs (Document Object Models). They represent HTML and XML code into trees. They allow all modifications to be tested first for calculating risks. This increases app performance and builds a better user experience.

Reason 6

You can easily create React projects with React CLI (create-react-app CLI). It’s a built-in feature that enables developers to take control over the management of the project locally. Create-react-app CLI allows you to both create and run applications. A new project can be created using simply one command.

React community

In the world of software development, one of the crucial things is choosing the right libraries and tools. If a chosen technology is used by a lot of developers, your development process will for sure speed up. And React boasts a large developer community - according to Statista, it’s the second most popular web framework among developers in 2022 (42,62% of developers use it). Therefore, developers are encouraged to connect with other professionals every time they face difficulties during the software development process.

What is React used for?

React development services have dominated the landscape of web and mobile development. It is used in a lot of different projects because the library is a very versatile tool. It works for bigger projects with various frameworks. At BrainForge IT, we use React in the following situations:

  • When we develop interactive single-page applications. React website development is perfect to build scalable web applications.
  • For building large media sites.
  • When we create web and mobile applications that share code.

Differences between React.js and other frameworks

React.js is a powerful library to create outstanding websites and applications. It is often compared with Vue and Angular.

React vs Vue.JS

The main difference between them is that React is a library, whereas Vue is a framework. An important distinction is also how they approach app design. React focuses on creating reusable components and Vue.JS provides developers with front-end tools. React uses JSX as a component format and Vue uses SFC (Single File Components) to build different components. Vue.JS is two-way binding and React.JS is one-way binding which means that Vue.JS uses more computer resources than React. Finally, both React and Vue work efficiently with the DOM which provides the impressive speed and performance of the application.

React vs Angular

As already mentioned, React is a library concerned with UI components. On the other hand, Angular is a full-fledged framework that provides a strong opinion on how your app should be designed. In React, UI elements cannot affect component states (one-way binding) and in Angular, when you modify the UI input, the model state will change. React uses virtual DOM and Angular - incremental DOM (every time a new DOM is created, it compares to the previous one and applies the differences to the actual DOM). The introduction of virtual DOM has significantly improved React’s performance which makes it perform a bit better than Angular.
