I have found that Codecademy (which I haven’t accessed in a long time) has a React.js tutorial. I’ve been reading the little introduction and so far, it seems like it’s pretty well detailed and in a few paragraphs has shed a little insight into why folks are using React.js:
- Speed- apps written in React can “handle complex updates and still feel quick and responsive”.
- Modular- Can write many small reusable files, instead of one large chunk of code. This helps with maintainability.
- Scalable- Can handle large programs with changeable data.
- Flexible- Is being used for more than just webapps. It’s potential is being experimented with.
I can’t wait to really take a chunk out of this tutorial and see what I’ll be building soon.
