Create dynamic and engaging web pages, web apps, and user interfaces.
ReactJS (or React) is one of the most popular front-end development libraries trusted by many big companies, including Facebook (who is also the creator), Instagram, Netflix, Uber, CNN, to name a few. It is primarily used in web development for creating dynamic and highly responsive user interfaces. React web pages are fast and SEO friendly, making it a perfect choice for businesses that aim to improve their search engine ranking and provide the best experience for visitors. One of the main advantages of ReactJS is reusable components (chunks of code, dedicated to a specific feature), which is especially beneficial when creating sophisticated solutions with lots of interactive elements. It greatly reduces both the time and cost of development.

Fast, dynamic and highly-responsive user interfaces
One of the distinguishing parts of React development is the Virtual DOM (document object model) technique. This technique involves comparing and changing only those page elements that were actually changed without affecting the rest of the page. As a result, React developers can create fast and highly responsive interfaces that provide a seamless user experience.
Saving development time and cost
All React components remain isolated and, when changed, do not affect each other. This makes it possible to reuse various assets and components without damaging the rest of the solution. In addition, your development team can reuse components that were previously created by members of the ReactJS community. The library has accumulated a large community of developers who constantly develop new components and provide regular updates. This greatly reduces both the time and cost of development.
Stability and easier updates
ReactJS uses downward data flow, which allows parent components to remain unaffected by child components. This greatly improves code stability and allows developers to make specific changes or updates without worrying about altering or breaking the structure of the solution.
Constant improvements and updates
Being one of the Big Five, Facebook makes sure that their technology is always at the forefront of the latest trends and innovations. Their team constantly improves the library and introduces new tools that make React development even smoother.
As mentioned before, Facebook supports and improves the platform constantly. This leads to continuous changes in the environment and requires your React developers to always stay on top of the latest updates. Luckily, Facebook is (usually) quick to provide the necessary documentation for new features.
Some SEO hassle
React development is used for creating dynamic Single Page Applications, which by some reports may be difficult for search engines to index. However, this problem can be solved by implementing React’s own server rendering or dynamic rendering. It is also a good idea to simply test your solution to check whether everything is as it should be on the SEO side.
Development specifics and additional tools
React development requires using JSX – a special syntax extension with its own strict rules and requirements. Also, creating complex and highly interactive web pages will require using additional tools such as Redux. Nevertheless, none of these will be an issue for experienced React developers.
