React can be used as a base in the development of single-page or mobile applications, as it’s optimal only for its intended use of being the quickest method to fetch rapidly changing data that needs to be recorded. However, fetching data is only the beginning of what happens on a web page, which is why complex React applications usually require the use of additional libraries for state management, routing, and interaction with an API.”
According to Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2018, React is used by 27.8% of software developers for creating user interfaces. Hence, when selecting the right language to be used for your next big development project, certain factors as mentioned below might just tilt the balance in favor of React:
Its won’t be an over-estimation to say that Facebook is the largest social media network in the world and React is at the heart of it, with a team of dedicated developers contributing and improving it incessantly. Some other platforms built using React includes Netflix, Twitter, Uber, Airbnb, Dropbox etc. Its obvious that nothing gets bigger than the brands mentioned here. As a project manager or CTO, it’s reassuring and fulfilling to know that the technology you are going to recommend to a client (or in some cases client recommending it to development team) is at a very mature stage and there is a thriving contributor community.
The perspective of ReactJS, where it develops its own virtual DOM for the components to reside in, provides the developer with a higher degree of workability, while improving the performance by a notch. This is due to the fact that ReactJS predicts through calculations the kind of modifications needed in the DOM environment and the trees are updated accordingly, making it cost-efficient and overall very flexible.
5) Simple yet unconventional:
There are so many browser extensions available now-a-days for easy debugging of an application built using ReactJS. What really makes this interesting is that the virtual DOM can be easily viewed just like viewing a conventional DOM tree in the element’s panel.
