What are the benefits of React.js?
Pieces of code available in React.js help reduce the amount of manual coding when creating standard dynamic UI components. If you are building a rich interactive web app, React.js will save you development time and help minimize errors and bugs. Moreover, React’s VirtualDOM will speed up your app’s page re-rendering in response to users’ actions and help provide a smooth user experience.
Is React only for single-page apps (SPA)?
Although in most cases developers use React to build SPAs the technology itself doesn’t limit you to the single-page app logic. You can implement a multiple-page logic for your web service by interlinking multiple self-contained react projects (pages) with your main application page. Apart from that, you can easily plug separate React components into any existing web application built with another technology.
