ReactJS is being touted as the answer to all web application development related issues and rightly so! With its robust background and huge developers’ community support, this is the platform to look out for you next being web app project!
A React element is a plain object describing a component instance or DOM node and its desired properties. It only has instances of the component type, properties and any child element that is present. The element is not and actual instance but a mode of communication to tell React what you want to see on the screen. It is an immutable description object with two fields – type: (string|ReactClass) and props: Object.
A DOM node is represented by element’s type in a string with specific name and props that define the attributes. DOM element just object on ReactJS and hence they are much lighter and don’t have to be parsed. Elements can be nested when creating an element tree as both child and parent is not actual instances but descriptions.
A key characteristic of ReactJS is the one-way data flow that begins with properties, which are a set of immutable values. These are passed on to a component’s renderer as properties in its HTML tag. Properties cannot be directly modified by the component but have to be passed as callback functions to modify values. This way, properties flow down and action flows up.
ReactJS is the dynamic element in web application development as it provides extensive support for apps that require constant data update. ReactJS has received highest number of GitHub stars from the developers’ community for its efficiency and the speed it offers in designing a dynamic web application.
