I frankly believe and hope that your business or your company is really successful. But have you ever thought of developing a brand new product that will engage lots of satisfied customers around the globe? I am talking about the digitalization of your ideas, namely about the creation of mobile applications or a website. In case if you already have one, why not to improve it with ReactJS development company.
There are a lot of different IT companies that are using various frameworks, but ReactJS development can bring a wide range of benefits for you:
- You get stylish and modern website or app with incredibly eye-catching user interface;
- Front-end development is fast and of high quality;
- You will spend some money on the development, but then you can monetize your app, which will bring you additional income.\
Sounds great, yeah? Employ ReactJS development company and get the best possible result.
What advantages of ReactJS make the development process so easy and pleasant?
Let’s talk here a bit about the technical advantages of this amazing framework.
- The mystery of the virtual DOM
React takes such an approach that renders all components and their sub-components again as soon as the application state is changed. However, this can be prevented, as it increases performance if the lifecycle method shouldComponentUpdate () is used.
Note: Using the virtual DOM is an enormous advantage when developing applications that frequently need to update UI components. If UI elements are updated irregularly, the implementation would be an overkill in this case and in the worst case it can be slower than working with the real DOM.
- Component-based architecture
ReactJS framework uses the component-based architecture. Essentially, this means dividing the application into several small parts that can functionally communicate with each other or run as independent modules.
A component can be viewed as a small part of a complete user interface. Using the example of Facebook and its social media platform, the chat could be one component and the comment feed would be another component. The always up-to-date friends list would be another component, and so the Facebook world is formed from several components.
If you start working with ReactJS development company, they will explain to you that this framework uses the concept of properties, or props for short. They are special attributes that allow the parent and child components to communicate with one another and exchange data.
In the JSX-based code section above, index, key, ship and isInFleet are defined as props and can transmit these to the child component SingleShip. This approach is important in React, but I’ll go into it later because it serves as a single source of truth.
- Build tools
ReactJS brings tools with it that makes creating new projects very easy. React uses Create React App (CRA) while some other popular frameworks use such things as cli. The tools do the necessary scaffolding and project setup according to current best practice standards.
CRA is more restrictive here and forces you to use Webpack and Babel in principle. Overall, however, it is a very stable tool that does what it should. With the other framework’s cli you have the option of using different templates (Progressive Web Apps, ServiceWorker, Graphql with Apollo …), which enable a more flexible project start. In addition to this, you can save laborious Webpack configurations, which is very pleasant in everyday work.
- Companion Framework
One of the most important features that I and most of the developers appreciate in ReactJS is the focus on the user interface area. Functionalities such as routing or state management are outsourced to separate frameworks. The only difference here is the maintenance of these projects. React-router and React-Redux are managed by community members and are therefore not officially supported by Facebook or the React core team.
- Benefits of JSX
Note: React relies heavily on the ES6 syntax and the corresponding new methods for object and array processing.
- State management
If you are already familiar with React, the application state concept is nothing new. In this context we have to mention Redux, as it is perfectly suited to support large applications with the associated state management. React assumes that data in the local state is immutable. This means that you cannot change this directly and you have to use the setState () method.
On the contrary to state management, local state management as a single source of truth is an enormous advantage for large applications and makes debugging much easier and more comprehensible.
- React Native
In the area of native mobile applications, React has an enormous advantage with React Native and a very mature solution for developing these applications.
Well, all of these features make ReactJS framework unique and popular. It has a really great community of developers and there are a lot of companies around the globe, which you can outsource, work with them on a freelance basis or just hire them full-time. Comparily to other development companies that work with other frameworks, ReactJS teams remain cheaper. But that does not mean that the quality of your app or website will be poorer, no way.
How are your experiences and thoughts with regard to the ReactJS development companies? Who has already hired the one? I am waiting for your feedback.
Thank you for reading and good luck!
