Getting Started With React

What Is React?

React is a user interface framework built by Facebook to build reactive user interfaces in JavaScript. These UI components can be rendered on the server or in the browser. In this introduction you'll get a quick tour of the React technologies by building a counter component. You'll see how to build a component by inheriting from React's base class. Then you'll see how to render the component and update its state, making the minimum number of DOM changes to update the UI. Finally, you'll see how the React diffing strategy works using a virtual DOM.
