React can be used as a base in the development of single-page or mobile applications. Complex React applications usually require the use of additional libraries for state management, routing, and interaction with an API.
Let’s define, what is so special about the React web development. Why would you prefer to build your product within this environment?
As the React guide says ‘Thinking in React’ may be a little different than you used to since it brings a new approach to the table, but it will become much easier and natural as you gain experience with it.
React provides a component based structure. Components are your lego pieces. You start with tiny components like button, checkbox, dropdown etc. and the you create wrapper components composed of those smaller components. And then you write higher level wrapper components. And, it goes on like that until you have this one root component and that component is your app.
One of the powerful sides of React is that it provides a good abstraction which means that it does not expose any complex internals to the user.
