Top 5 React libraries (not only) for X-mas

As ReactJS is maintained by Facebook and a community of individual developers and companies, it has the same response: you like it or hate it. We’re in the first group, because it is widely used as a base in building single-page websites and mobile applications. We like React,js cause it’s very easy to use, and it allows users to create reusable UI components.

React benefits

React.js paved and paves its way thanks to numerous advantages, which 5 seems to be the most important:

  • Reusable components - you can create components of your choice by using the react component feature and thanks to it maintenance the code easier;
  • Reactjs is an open-source javascript library;
  • Maintained by big guys - ReactJS has become very popular, it is used by many famous companies like Apple, Netflix and maintained by FB and Insta;
  • Rich UI, as the ReactJS can be used to develop rich UI for both desktop and mobile apps.
