ReactJS is the open-source library for creating user interfaces. Its basic goal was to solve the problem of partial web page update in the single-screen applications. React was originally developed by the Facebook company experts; today the library is constantly updated and fixed also by numerous members of external developer communities. Since its release, ReactJS started to rapidly gain popularity and is today one of the most used tools in the development of mobile applications.
Why did it happen? Let us review the benefits that the framework gives to developers:
- cross-platform development: React is a versatile multi-platform tool; the application created with its help can be quickly adapted to new operating systems;
- One-way binding: some of the ReactJS components after rendering are treated similarly to HTML tags and their properties can be changed only through callback functions;
- Visualization: The view of the developed application’s interface is rendered in parallel with the process of writing code, enabling the developer to see the results of their actions in the form of a web page in real-time;
- Server-side render: this feature of the framework in some cases allows speeding up the rendering of the page in times and, in turn, increases the reactivity and sleekness of the user interface.
ReactJS, in general, fully justifies its popularity, being a useful tool for the user interface design and the single-page applications creation. Library’s logic and interface layout principles allow for an impressive scalability.
The result of the ReactJS development will be a fully and efficiently working component or a one-page application with architecture, logic and interface easily adaptable for any platform.
