Benefits of ReactJS for Web Development

Updated IT News

Offering a tonne of benefits for developing interactive and user-friendly web applications, ReactJS has gradually become the obvious choice for front-end and single page development.

Already preferred by tech giants such as Facebook, Netflix, AirBnB, DropBox, IMDb, PayPal, Tesla Motors, Walmart and many others, your company can rely on ReactJS for its next web project. 

Preparing for your company’s web project can be a daunting task, considering how many tools, libraries and frameworks are available, as well as how fast they evolve and outdate each other. 

Bocasay, an offshore outsourcing company, is explaining you in this article how ReactJS became a reliable choice among web developers.

What is ReactJS?

Created in 2013, ReactJS is a JavaScript library for building user interfaces. It uses JSX, which is a syntax extension to HTML, that makes it easier to create declarative UI components. By providing stateless functional reactive programming (FRP) APIs, developers can easily handle event-based interactions in their applications. React isn’t just another view framework.  Its small and modular design encourages creativity and enables developers to build large, featureful UIs with fewer lines of code than other libraries like Angular or Vue2+. Finally, because ReactJS doesn’t require any dependencies on external libraries like jQuery or Lodash, web app development can be much simpler and faster than frameworks which depend on those utilities.

Essential Features of ReactJS

Virtual DOM :

This is the main reason web development is faster with ReactJS. The Virtual Document Object-Model uses a reconciliation algorithm that tracks changes made in virtual memory, essentially enabling developers to produce scalable and lightweight web applications.

React Native:

React Native is an open-source application framework that is found within the ReactJS library. This feature enables web developers to not only design websites and web applications, but to also develop appealing Android and iOS apps with a totally native ambiance.

One-Way Data Binding:

ReactJS deploys a one-way, downward data-binding process. This means that any changes made to a ‘child’ coding component will not impact the ‘parent’ component. Data can only be transferred from parent to child, and not the other way around.

Advantages of ReactJS for Web Development


Perfect for use across a range of platforms, and for creating separate web design elements and components, the modular structure of ReactJS provides next-level flexibility for web developers. With ReactJS, it is easy to scale and maintain web applications, as well as to ultimately save time and resources for your company during the project’s development stage. And even more so by entrusting this task to an offshore outsourcing company.


Avoid unpredictable programming conflicts by using ReactJS’s simple and intuitive coding practices. Despite its coding simplicity, ReactJS enables developers to fully control how an application will ultimately interact with end-users. It is important to remember that this is a powerful library that offers a range of useful features for state, action and event management.


Significantly boosting the web development process for companies of all sizes, ReactJS has become a top choice because it essentially allows web developers to utilize and customize individual parts of their application – both on the client-side and the server-side – without worrying about causing a disruptive impact on the entire application’s logic and architecture.


A major advantage of using ReactJS for your web projects is its potential for reusable components. This means that your development team can save time and money, as web developers don’t need to write code from scratch in order to provide certain app features. More importantly, coding changes in one component will not affect other parts of the app.    


Designed to provide high-performance, the ReactJS framework allows web developers to fully control CPU consumption and to avoid over-rendering unnecessary features of the web application. More specifically, ReactJS offers a virtual DOM program and server-side rendering that ultimately enables complex web applications to perform much better and faster. 


All web applications must be tested before being utilized by end-users. With a clearly defined structure, ReactJS enables easy testing of user interface components and code debugging. Your company can ensure web application functionality by running tests in the terminal, on multiple web browsers simultaneously, or even on a continuous integration server.

Why you should use ReactJS for your next web project

  • Easy-to-Learn: As mentioned above, ReactJS is an open-source GUI library that is compatible with other JavaScript libraries and frameworks. It is much easier to learn and master than Angular JS and Vue, and its main benefit is that new developers – with only a basic knowledge of CSS3, JavaScript and HTML5 – can easily begin coding for your company’s requirements without having to experience a steep learning curve.
  • UI-Focused: ReactJS essentially empowers creativity and flexibility for web developers by making it easy to produce highly-responsive and featureful user interfaces. With a primary focus on designing user interfaces, web applications built with ReactJS have reduced loading times, are able to run smoothly without interruptions, and ultimately provide end-users with interactive and appealing interfaces.   
  • SEO-Friendly: Whenever you develop web applications, it is absolutely crucial to ensure that your products and services can be easily found by search engines. With ReactJS, developers can produce impressive results that always place search engine optimization at the forefront. Considering that your development team has built an app with fast loading times, apps designed with ReactJS can almost guarantee a higher ranking in Google’s search pages.
