Why React JS is Taking Over the Web Development World
React JS (or React) is an open-source library, developed by Facebook in 2013, and it’s quickly become one of the most popular frameworks in web development today. Here are the three reasons why React has taken over the web development world. This article will explain how to use React with web applications, starting with basic examples and then working up to larger components of an application.
How React Started
How It Works
Pros and Cons
As you learn more about different frameworks, you’ll notice that each has its own unique pros and cons. For example, while AngularJS is undeniably powerful, it can also be difficult to use and cumbersome to maintain. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it may not be right for every project. By contrast, EmberJS offers excellent compatibility with existing projects and tools, as well as an API that many find intuitive to work with. Of course, there are far more factors than just those listed here – but as a web developer in 2016 (and beyond), it’s important that you become familiar with these key points so that you can make better decisions regarding which framework will best suit your current needs.
Who Uses it?
Facebook, Instagram, Walmart, Netflix. The list goes on and on. The reason for that is because of how powerful and efficient ReactJS has become with its new releases in its latest versions (React16). But what makes it so special? With other frameworks like Angular (2+) or even more popular ones like VueJs, there are a lot of opinions as to why one framework is better than another. I’ll try to break down each advantage here
What are Alternatives to React?
Choosing a technology for building websites and applications can be extremely difficult. There are many different frameworks, each with its own set of strengths and weaknesses. While it may seem like React is everywhere, here are some alternatives to it: Angular, Angular 2, Ionic 2/Cordova (hybrid mobile), VueJS, Polymer/Web Components (browser support not there yet). It’s important to research these frameworks before making a decision because they all have strengths that could fit your needs better than React. The most important thing you should know about these other frameworks is how they differ from React and how that can affect you if you decide to use them. That way you know what to expect when starting a project.
After all these new frameworks, you might be wondering if there will ever be a framework-less future. For now, it seems unlikely that there will ever be a framework less future. While most people focus on innovation in terms of what new technology can do for them and their users, others continue to focus on innovation as a process. As long as we view software development as an evolving process, rather than just a product line or simple progression of time, we should continue to see massive amounts of innovation and disruption.
