React - A Lightweight and lightning fast frontend framework

React was developed by Facebook respectively Meta and is now one of the most popular front-end JavaScript frameworks for the development of web-based user interfaces.

How does React work?

React is based on the concept of reusable components that makes code modular and easier to maintain. It uses a virtual DOM (Document Object Model) to enable fast and efficient user interface updates. Instead of updating the entire DOM every time a change is made, React calculates the differences between the current DOM and the desired new version (diffing) and updates only the parts that have actually changed (reconciliation).

The most important features of React


The framework enables the development of reusable and independent UI components that can be easily integrated and maintained.
