Create web apps using React.js

What is React.js? Their website says that it is a JavaScript (js) library for building user interfaces. While you must be aware that Jordan Walke, a software engineer at Facebook developed React Javascript (js), did you know that a developers’ survey by Stack Overflow in 2020 revealed that out of 57.378 responses, 68,9% expressed their willingness and interest to continue working with React.js? 

Firstly, we would like to clarify that though React.js is easy to learn, it is difficult to master. A part of this is also because new advanced versions keep getting added to it. 

We list out the prerequisites to learn React.js. They are as follows: 


One must be adept at HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and Cascading Style Sheets to be able to learn React.js because the complete structure of any web-based project is made by HTML and designed by CSS. Using React.js you can create a web application.

2. Bootstrap

Bootstrap is also an essential framework if you want to start your journey as a React.js developer and if you want to learn Bootstrap, then a visit to its official website will help.

3. ECMA6

ECMA6 is an advanced version of javascript, which includes advanced concepts of js such as fat arrow function, router, hooks, objects and the procedure to make components.

An important thing to remember about ECMA6 is that all the js programming in React is based on ECMA6.

Node Package Manager (NPM)

NPM is a command-line-tool, which mainly handles updates, installations and uninstallations of Node.js packages. However, one must know where NPM can be implemented in the React application.

Some of the information you must also have apart from the above mentioned ones are as follows:   

  1. Knowledge Of text editors like Vs Code, Sublime Text
  2. Basic understanding of Javascript functionalities.
  3. Good knowledge of JS DOM part 
  4. Asynchronous functions of js. For eg: call back, promises, wait. 
  5. Use state method
  6. Additional tools like Webpack and Babel JS
  7. Understanding Json, API’s, HTTP
