Great advice. I sat with a piece of paper and pen and consolidated my thoughts. It's so powerful.

Is it correct to say that React is a framework for developing the V of the MVC design pattern, a pre-built CMS provides the M and C in some cases?

I'm also going through the react tutorial again while taking my time.

Again, thanks for the advice, really got me thinking more clearly!

Yes, React is just a View library - see its API documentation
reactjs.org/docs/react-api.html . By itself, it has no opinion about how you structure your app. Everything else (flux, redux, babel and so on) is optional.
