The Advantages Of Using React


As developers, coders, and engineers, we have seen many changes in the front-end ecosystem come and go. Some of the tools that we use on a daily basis have revolutionised the way we develop web apps, while others have become nothing more than a passing fad which has been quickly pushed aside by serious developers. Among the revolutionary web app development tools we have at our disposal, one stands out as one of the most popular and feature packed of all time.

I am talking about React, of course. Reactjs was launched in 2013 and developers quickly fell in love with it. Today, React is maintained by Facebook and it is used by everyone from Apple, PayPal, and Netflix, to thousands of 32 websites which have been built using the React JS framework.

With that in mind, we are going to take a look at some of the benefits of using React and see why it is so revered in the industry today:

React Increases Productivity And Facilitates Further Maintenance- to solve the problem of constant updates that become overcomplicated and challenging, Facebook has given React the ability to reuse system components. This re-use of assets can save a lot of time and increase productivity by making project maintenance easier as well.

React Ensures Faster Rendering- if you are building a high-load application, you know just how much the structure will affect the overall performance of your app. Still, you could be faced with bottlenecks which can slow the interface. To avoid this, React features Virtual DOM which lets you apply any changes you have made to the VDOM first to test the effectiveness and efficiency of the code. Once you have done this in the Virtual DOM tree, it can be applied to the app itself where you can expect better user experience and higher app performance as a result.

React Guarantees Stable Code- ReactJS uses only downward data flow to ensure that small changes in the child structures don’t affect the parents. In React, to change an object, you modify its state, make the changes, and only those components will be updated. This ensures code stability and continuous app performance.

React Is SEO Friendly- React can run on a server, rendering and returning the virtual DOM to the browser as a regular webpage. This avoids the common issue of search engines failing to read JavaScript-heavy apps.
