  • R React

React is a popular JavaScript library that web developers use to create the parts of a website that you interact with, often referred to as the front end. Think of it like a set of building blocks that developers can use to put together websites and applications more easily. These blocks are reusable and can be mixed and matched to build different sections of a website, much like using the same type of Lego bricks to build different models. React helps ensure that the website looks good and works well, whether you’re clicking a button, filling out a form, or just navigating from page to page. It’s a bit like a director behind the scenes, making sure that what you see on your screen plays out smoothly.

How is React best used? Well, it’s particularly handy when a website needs to talk to the Internet to fetch, display, or send information — this is where APIs come into play, which are like special messengers that allow different parts of the Internet to communicate. React works well with these APIs, helping to connect your clicks and interactions with the vast amount of information on the web. Plus, it’s decoupled, which means that the people working on the look and feel of the website (using things like HTML and CSS) can work somewhat independently from those working on the behind-the-scenes logic. This separation helps teams work faster and more efficiently, making React an excellent tool for building modern, dynamic websites that are easy to update and maintain.
