Why Build With React?/
React – The Clear #1 Frontend Web Framework
React is easily the top frontend framework in 2023. Development by Facebook in 2011 to help build modern frontend experiences for the Facebook platform. Since then it has risen to become the most popular framework in the world for frontend development. There is really not a close number 2 for frontend development compared to React. It also has the functionality of React Native allowing you to build your website and your mobile application in the same codebase. Due to the virtual DOM functionality, React is loved for its superior performance and is considered one of the easiest frameworks to learn. A virtual DOM can be thought of as a blueprint that allows you to work faster on the high-level design without messing with all the plumbing of really moving things around. This makes it much faster to develop and change things in React. The momentum behind the React community is what is really driving it forward. More and more developers are learning React every single day. This means a stronger community with more support for new features and complex applications.
