React

React (React.js) is a software package that helps developers build user interfaces. It is an open-source JavaScript library created by Facebook. React.js is composed of low-level JavaScript libraries, which are hard to use. Thus, React Native is a layer that provides a more usable way for developers to use React. React Native is a very popular tool for building interactive user interfaces. As a front-end framework built on JavaScript, React Native comes with many pre-built functions to accelerate development. These are components for displaying front-end content like text, images, styles, lists, user interactions, buttons, and more. React Native also provides the ability to generate multiple platform-specific iterations of the same UI component from a single source code. Using React Native, you can create web applications that function similarly to native apps.
