React development is when React.js is used for web or mobile development of a project.
When companies decide to use React js for web development, this decision helps save a considerable amount of time and money on web development.
“Write once. Use anywhere.”
This is not surprising at all.
React gives your application versatility, high performance, and speed. With small size, well-developed documentation, a huge React developer community, and the backing of some of the biggest tech companies in the world, React has been in great demand in both web and mobile development.
React can be seen as a stable, time-proven and a cutting-edge library which is continuously evolving. It has been the main competitor of Google's AngularJS (v1.x and v2.x) since its beginnings, and React is now one of the most loved front-end frameworks.
Here are some reasons why React js is so popular:
This is not all of the React advantages. Keep reading.
If your project offers a lot of interactions with the end-user, React.js can be your preferred framework. This is because React helps resolve many of the challenges that come with developing efficient web applications. React introduces a virtual DOM that updates the real DOM in a smart and extremely efficient way, so even complex web applications can show great interactivity, without sacrificing their performance.
React lets web developers build lightning-fast user interfaces, making great web applications for your customers/users. This reactivity has made React very popular, and it is one of the main reasons why React development services for frontend are in such great demand these days.
Skilled React developers can reuse React components within your project whenever applicable, significantly increasing the speed of the project development. Over time, as the project continues, your React reusable components library increases, benefitting the project development speed further.
React can be used beyond the web. It is all possible with React Native, which allows using React’s benefits in mobile app development. Our React developers can easily share a large part of the codebase between a React-based web app and a React Native-based app for Android and iOS, and this can all be done without compromising the app’s performance.
Since the framework's release in 2013, React developers have changed their perception that React is suitable only for massive applications with tons of traffic. This is because the framework has seen many incremental improvements. Also, the emergence of a great variety of third-party development tools (e.g. Redux for state management), as well as the growth of the vibrant React developer community, help to quickly find an effective solution for any challenge that React developers may face.
For your project, this means that our experienced team can provide you with React js web application development services and help you create a scalable React app very quickly.
React Architecture applies beyond just HTML rendering, as it supports rendering to
<canvas> tags, and can be suitable for isomorphic architecture, where the application logic runs on both the server and the client (browser) sides. This allows for several optimisations and, although it is not widely adopted, is certainly worth considering.
React developers no longer need to manually figure out the differences in the HTML code that should be rendered, nor do they have to update specific parts of the web page manually. This is because React's Virtual DOM enables the React developer to write the code as if the webpage was reloaded with every update, and React will automatically figure out the differences and update the view accordingly.
To keep code clean, React does not allow for component renderers to mutate any values that can be passed into it. Instead, any callbacks can be passed to components that modify values. This ensures that rendering and data mutation logic are separated, which provides great reusability for the code. Also, this "data down, actions up" approach combines perfectly with Redux, a state management library for React, which can work with both React and React Native.
React Hooks, a new React feature that helps solve a variety of unconnected problems in React that have been encountered over the years of writing and maintaining tens of thousands of components.
Long story short, React Hooks allow developers to use React without classes. Web developers can also extract stateful logic from a component so it can be tested independently and reused within a project.
As sometimes complex components bring about certain difficulties, React Hooks let web developers split one component into smaller functions. They also let web developers “hook into” React state and other React lifecycle features from function components without writing a class.
In addition, React Hooks allow developers to reuse stateful logic without changing the component hierarchy, making it easy to share Hooks among many components or with the community.
The above advantages make React an excellent fit for any innovative project - whether it is an entertainment app, a complex analytical tool, a business web application, or a mobile app. The unique benefits of React demonstrate their real value when your users start interacting with your awesome React-built app.
Our expert senior front-end developers, who have been working with React since 2013, can help you to create reusable, scalable and fully functional web apps.
As early adopters of React, our web developers have already created a variety of reusable React components and full-scale web applications.
IT Club provides the following React.js development services using our best in-house resources:
As for SEO, it can be effectively handled through server-side rendering. Moreover, React has behind it an active and fast-growing worldwide community, which, in turn, allows developing great frontends even faster.
React is designed to focus exclusively on applying business logic, providing high scalability and high-speed efficiency to save money and time. These features allow our web developers to adopt modern technology and create Progressive Web Apps.
Our web developers use React at least for two reasons when developing SPAs (single-page applications).
Firstly, due to its virtual representation of the DOM, React guarantees perfect efficiency. When a user interacts with an app, the operations are run against the virtual DOM and then rendered on the visible page.
Secondly, its server-side rendering supports using Next.js, which, in turn, is used for static websites as well as a desktop and mobile app, the enterprise, SEO-friendly websites, PWAs, etc.
Besides that, our developers don’t need to investigate the rest of your technology stack and rewrite your existing code. React allows our web developers to avoid this, saving your resources.
React Native allows React developers to build not ‘just’ a mobile web app or a hybrid app, but a fully fledged mobile app, identical to the one built in the platform's native language. This is because React uses the same fundamental UI building blocks as regular iOS and Android apps.
Another major benefit of React Native is that it does not require recompiling. This allows us to reload the app instantly with the hot reload supported by React Native. It lets us run the new code while retaining the application’s state.
React Native reusable components library allows to reduce the time required for mobile development, making the release of your React Native app faster and less costly.
While React Native would not be seen as the best choice for mobile games, where every millisecond counts, it nevertheless has shown great applicability in some real-life high-loaded apps. Those include Facebook, Instagram, Skype, Tesla, SoundCloud, Airbnb and other well-known projects. Thus, React Native is well-suited for most web apps and projects you want to create.
We provide React Native app development services.

React is a front-end library which works in the browser. React renders on a server using Node, and powers mobile apps using React Native.
There are many reasons to use React.js. Firstly, React allows creating reusable UI components. With React, web developers can create large web applications which can change data without reloading the page. Due to its virtual representation of the DOM, React also guarantees perfect efficiency. Lastly, React offers server-side rendering by using Next.js.
React uses Virtual DOM that makes the app faster. Virtual DOM allows ReactJS to detect changes in the data and know exactly when to re-render or when to ignore specific parts of the DOM. A UI that works quickly is important in enhancing the overall user experience.
ReactJS is used for building user interfaces, specifically for single-page applications (SPA).
Yes, there are many alternatives to React. The most popular are Vue.js, AngularJS, Ember, Svelte, and Preact.
The most popular state management libraries are Redux and MobX. Recently, Facebook released an experimental library, Recoil, which builds on React primitives and gives benefits such as small size, compatibility with concurrent mode and combining on React's batching.
