Advantages & Disadvantages of Using ReactJS
What is ReactJS?
What Is It Used For?
Created by Meta (formerly Facebook), React allows for an easier and more efficient way to build applications and is responsible for the app’s look and feel. Designers use React to create single-page applications, complex applications (if combined with other libraries), and mobile applications like WhatsApp and Instagram.
Advantages of Using ReactJS
- Easy to Learn
- Less Coding
Dynamic web applications can take time and complex coding. However, with React, there’s no need for that, especially since the user and server versions of the application are very similar.
- Reusable Components
Components are the backbone of React, and since you can reuse and combine them whenever you need to, it saves time and brain power. Developers don’t need to write new code for a component since they can use the similar functionalities that they’ve already made.
- SEO Friendly
React’s library is SEO friendly and contributes to a faster loading time and rendering speed – one of the main things SEO favors. SEO-friendly allows for better indexing and more traffic to your web application.
Disadvantages of Using ReactJS
- Rapid Development
React’s rapid development may seem like a strange disadvantage, but its ever-changing and growing library can make keeping up to date a challenge. Developers may become frustrated as they repeatedly attempt to learn ReactJS and its new specifications.
- Lack of Proper Documentation
It’s hard to document changes that happen so often, especially knowing there will be new changes soon. The existing documents will give a good understanding of how React works. Still, the lack of documentation on the latest and continuous updates will make it a little challenging to have the complete picture.
- Use of JSX
ReactJS is one of the most popular open-source user interface libraries around. Many top companies use it to create and develop dynamic and interactive applications.
