Getting Started With ReactJS - Part I
Before we start the tutorial let’s deep dive into some basic information about React.
So let’s jump into it.
What is React?
The heart of all Reactjs applications is components. A component is a self-contained module that renders some output. We can write interface elements like a button or an input field as a React component. Components are composable. A component might include one or more other components in its output.
Why You Should Learn ReactJS?
The most greedy one could be it is developed by Facebook engineers. (Jordan Walke, a software engineer at Facebook).
React JS has been used extensively on Instagram, Netflix, PayPal, Apple. Facebook started using React in 2011 for the first time.
It can be used to produce any type of web application, native mobile apps, command-line interfaces, avionics and much more.
React is capable of building any complex UI keeping state out of the DOM. React uses a Virtual DOM that ensures maximum efficiency by only re-rendering nodes whenever it is required.
How does it work?
I hope this helps you to get the first understanding of React, its uses, and its benefits. React may seem complicated to start with but its all worth. Feel free to ask your questions in the comment or drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before we start with React JS some basic things which are most important which you have to learn.
NPM: NPM is Node’s package manager. It’s a repository of thousands of useful pieces of code that you may want to integrate with your project.
npm also has a command-line tool that lets us easily install, manage and run projects.
Use npm too…
– Adapt packages of code for your apps, or incorporate packages as they are.
– Download standalone tools you can use right away.
– Run packages without downloading using npx.
– Share code with any npm user, anywhere.
– Restrict code to specific developers.
– Create Orgs (organizations) to coordinate package maintenance, coding, and developers.
– Form virtual teams by using Orgs.
– Manage multiple versions of code and code dependencies.
– Update applications easily when the underlying code is updated.
– Discover multiple ways to solve the same puzzle.
– Find other developers who are working on similar problems and projects.
