React (also known as React.js or ReactJS) is an open-source, front end, JavaScript library for building user interfaces or UI components. It is maintained by Facebook and a community of individual developers and companies. React can be used as a base in the development of single-page or mobile applications. React’s core library is only concerned with state management and rendering that state to the DOM, so creating single-page React applications usually requires the use of additional libraries for routing, as well as other client-side functionality. React was written in JavaScript and created by Jordan Walke in 2013 of Facebook. Many large tech companies make use of React, including Uber, Airbnb, Netflix and Facebook.
