React is a JavaScript web UI framework that allows you to build component-based user interface controls for your web applications. One of the nice benefits of using a framework, such as React, is that each component that you create maintains its own state, independent of other components. It also makes it easy and clean to develop individual UI pieces, separate from the rest of the web application, and that can be re-used in other areas of the app or even in other web applications altogether.

Introduction

Ready to build your first web app with React? React is a javascript library, developed by Facebook, that has been gaining in popularity. It uses a component-based UI development style, combined with simplicity, and optimized performance. React is similar in nature to jQuery, in that they can both be used as UI libraries. Unlike larger web UI frameworks, such as Google’s AngularJs, that can serve as a much larger package and complete UI framework, Reactjs excels at focusing on being a specialized UI view library.
