Facebook built React for their own products, which include Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp . React is also used by Netflix, The New York Times, AirBnb, Discord, DropBox, and many other big companies you've heard of.
React is used for frontend web apps to detect user input, fetch data, and update the user interface with data. React does all this with maximum performance.
React mainly gives you a structured way to create reusable frontend UI components, handle user input, update UI components efficiently, and manage your data.
Yes! React is the most popular frontend library in 2020 for numerous reasons. We are willing to bet that someone from the React team is preparing an update for React or, at least, a React tool as you're reading this. React is very relevant in 2020 and not likely to go out of style anytime soon.
Ah, the age old question! Anything you can build with React, you can build with Angular, and vice versa. Which you pick to learn is mostly preference. While React is best described as a library, Angular is an elaborate framework. With React, you'll pick and choose additional libraries that suit your project whereas, with Angular, you're expected to include the libraries you're given (they're pretty good).
React is not without its downsides. When compared with a framework like Angular, you will find there is no predefined way to structure your app. To ensure you get the most from React, you'll need to spend a little more time researching and implementing popular and effective ways to structure your app.
React is a small library built on clever design patterns and ideas. With a React course or tutorial, you could build your first app today but it will likely take you a few more days of practice to fully understand the core React concepts and unlock their full power. This, of course, depends on your experience and how much time you can commit.
React is a library - a library of helpful functions and modules to pull into your app as and when you need them. This means you're in complete control of your app. A framework, by definition, is the essential support for your app, which you build on and operate within.
No, not really. For that, you'll need a server-side tool like Node and a server-side Node framework like Express. React does occasionally appear in backend frameworks like Next.js to do something advanced called server-side rendering, which is a smart way to improve page load time and SEO.
Yes, absolutely. In the early days, React probably worked best with Node.js but in 2020, it's free game. React is a fantastic candidate for any backend framework.
