Why is React JS so popular?

React JS is one of the most advanced technologies, and many industry experts have recognized this fact.
Some of the major brands like Netflix, Facebook, Instagram, etc. are powered by ReactJS.

What Is React JS?

React is a JavaScript library that specializes in helping developers build user interfaces, or UIs. In terms of websites and web applications, UIs are the collection of on-screen menus, search bars, buttons, and anything else someone interacts with to USE a website or app.

Before React JS, developers were stuck building UIs by hand with “vanilla JavaScript” or with less UI-focused React predecessors like jQuery. That meant longer development times and plenty of opportunities for errors and bugs.

So, in 2011, Facebook engineer Jordan Walke created React JS  specifically to improve UI development.

In a post, Walke tweeted that after spending more than a decade at the social media giant, he is finally leaving the company. Besides this, Walke mentioned that from now on he will also be investing more in startups as opportunities arise as well as investing in open-source projects/communities including React JS related technologies, UI frameworks, programming languages and other such.

What Does React JS Code Look Like?

React has a few different kinds of components. Here are the examples of React. Component Subclasses:

The React JS Ecosystem

React JS is an open source project, meaning anyone can download and modify its source code for free. This also means that, whatever specific UI function you’re hoping to address with React JS, there’s a React library to meet your needs. Your React library size can grow exponentially with React’s community curated library add-ons (opens in a new tab), ranging from collections of individual UI features to complete React JS templates for building UI’s from the ground up.

React is the future of the software industry; why?

  • Fast Rate of Interface Rendering
  • Easy-to-Use for Software Developers
  • Integration with Advanced Third-Party Solutions
  • Multipurpose Uses of Code
  • Efficient Design and Developer Tools

Is there any doubt in React JS’ credibility when companies like Facebook, Netflix, Uber, Airbnb, and Yahoo! are using it? The reason for the popularity of this technology among the most ambitious companies is to focus on the high performance and flexibility of software.
