Understanding React

The Simplest Practical Guide to Start Coding in React

About the Book

Every successful framework or library provides something unique which gives developers a new tool for writing better software. In the case of React, that tool is called component. You might be thinking that you have been reading about components as the solution to your spaghetti software nightmare for the last 15 years without any success. You are not wrong. However, React is an exception. It provides the constructions and tools to build highly cohesive components to assemble your next application. In this book, we will study React core concepts, to end up being very practical describing how to split an application into components and to fully implement it. We explain the concepts creating three applications. We use React Material UI for the CRUD application, React Router v6 and a HTML theme to implement a Blog and React Bootstrap to implement a Task List application.
