Choosing the right JS (JavaScript) framework for developing your web application is a crucial task from the plethora of options. They range from Angular, Backbone, React.js, Node, Ember, and the latest addition to the list, Vue.js.

However, React.js is one of the most popular frameworks among the front-end developers for application development these days. As a lightweight JS framework, there is an immense growth in its library in the past few years.

To understand what is so unique about the traits of React.js that make it one of the most favored JavaScript frameworks, let’s start with its basic intro:

What is React?
It is a JavaScript library which aims to simplify the components of the user interface in the development process. It helps to create intuitive, modular and reusable components like comment boxes, pop up and others efficiently. App developers need to design the simple views of each state in the application, and the framework renders the desired components hassle-free.

React.js is also termed as ‘the V in the MVC (Model-View-Controller) structure’ as it rules the View section by augmenting developer’s views and offering unlimited ways to enhance the UI components. It helps provide a seamless customer experience by supporting the development of interactive web applications.

Listed are some of the features that make React.js an obvious choice for front-end developers:

1. The Virtual DOM (Document Object Model): React.js brings in the helpful Virtual DOM – a virtual browser multiple times friendlier than the real browser. Considered as the middleman between the developer and the actual browser.

2. React Native: This framework has revolutionized the mobile app development as well. It allows developers to develop and deploy the mobile apps in JavaScript like the ones created in the native Java and Objective-C/Swift. It is because of this reason that the React utilizes a compilation of native code for both Android and iOS to write their unique UI components.

3. JSX: It is the file created by React by mixing JavaScript and HTML into one accessible file. It offers developers the freedom of writing HTML-like code directly into the JavaScript. It is quick, convenient and provides an excellent way of building a reusable UI component with the advantages of both HTML and JS.

4. Interactive User Interfaces: It gives developers the liberty to edit and define the User Interface as per their target user’s requirements. The front-end developers need to specify the interfaces regarding functions, thus automating the app development process.

5. Flux Programming: It helps in the creation of data layers in the applications developed with JavaScript. It also expedites the update and bug-tracking process through a reliable identification and management of ‘Actions.’

Conclusion
The reusable components, one-way data flow, JSX and other state-of-the-art features of React.js fast-track the development process and make coding workable and optimally controlled for front-end web development services.

Something is happening. People are unhappy. The specter of civil unrest is pursued by our programming communities.

For the first time a significant number of web developers openly question the web platform. Here is a typical article and discussion of . I could list more, but if you are sufficiently interested in programming to read this article, you probably already read this year at least one pompous recitation about the current state of web development. This article is not one of those. I can not compete in bullying the existing status quo with people who have to deal with web development every day. This is another article.
