React brings the modern to software interfaces
React delivers modern, lightweight and rich applications
Key benefits of the React library
React is de facto component-based making each chunk of functionality highly reusable. Components encapsulate logic, contain their own styling and manage their own state, enabling Mercury developers to assemble complex UIs from proven and self-contained pieces over and over again.
Typical application maintenance tasks like interface updates, logic changes and layout optimization often turn into a headache because of code interdependencies. React’s colocation of content, logic, styling and state control greatly simplifies the maintenance load and keeps code cross-talk to a minimum.
For any public-facing online business, Search Engine Optimization is the gateway to boost user traffic. React significantly reduces page load time through faster rendering speed which is an increasingly important SEO factor. Finally, with its ability to run on the server, React can return a rendered “regular” webpage to the browser.
Facebook’s architectural philosophy positions React as a light interface-only framework – React does not introduce a full stack into your application. That means any architecture data source can drive your React application – it is agnostic to server technology.
