React and React Native are programming frameworks for creating responsive, reactive and scalable applications, on both web and mobile. These frameworks boast a strong open-source community following and were created by Facebook to solve the challenges they encountered in creating their interactive social media apps.
Being open source, you are free to use these technologies within your own app projects.
The React framework requires new features to be built in the form of components, these can then be used anywhere within the application. For example, you may create a submit button component that can then be used anywhere. If you should want to update your submit processes later, then you can simply extend this button component, or drop it completely in favour for a new approach. This approach also works for larger components, such as payment mechanisms, or reporting tools.
As your application grows, you can be confident that your application has been built in a robust and scalable way that supports future extension. This is exactly the reason why we chose to build MODL app using React.
The best framework to use, whether React or something else, will depend on what you are trying to achieve. It may be that a fully device-native mobile application is more suitable, or it may be best to use React for the application part of the website but not the app.
