With the brief introduction of ReactJS out of the way, let’s delve deeper into its features to understand why it’s special.
One-way Data Binding
ReactJS only approves data that are flowing in a single direction i.e. if the data are flowing downstream, in a single flow. If the data have to flow in a different direction, additional features would be required. This is why many developers see React as a reliable origin for canonical data sources. This is also why React is widely preferred as a front-end library to create highly interactive applications.
An added benefit is that as the data won’t be flowing in a different direction, they would be less prone to errors, and debugging would be much easier.
Being a widely popular open source tool, React is backed by a big community – including Facebook, Instagram, and experts in the wider open source community. The community constantly strives to improve React and the mobile experience it can offer, and is quick to respond when it comes to solving publicly posted technical issues and complexities.
All components of React are isolated which means any change in one component won’t affect another component. Add to this React’s component reusability feature, and the developers get a number of great benefits. Reusable React components would be particularly useful for companies with a tight budget for application development. They can resolve many issues by themselves and save on maintenance costs as well. In addition, reusable components also make programming much more precise and comfortable for developers thus reducing complexity while completing app development faster.
