The cost of developing websites or applications has come a long way from being affordable to the underprivileged or free. The development cost has shrunk from months and months of R&D to just a few hours worth. Moreover, with the introduction of tools like React and Vue.js, it has become accessible for almost everyone to build large-scale web apps at a low cost.
So what is all the fuss about? Let's see why you should be using ReactJS in your next project — especially if you are an SME who wants to cut down on overheads and production costs while still maintaining an innovative user experience.
The best-case scenario for any software-ambitious person is to build a minimum viable product (MVP) for testing out the software and learning about their needs and wants. Then, once the MVP is stable, they can start the real development process — creating the app from the ground up. This is what most startups do — they build an MVP, test out their ideas, and then build their app from the ground up. Then they can scale their app to meet the needs and wants of their users — all while learning and growing as an organization.
It is accessible to almost everyone — With the help of tools like React and Yeoman, anyone can build a web app at low cost If you are an SME who wants to cut down on overheads and production costs while still maintaining an innovative user experience, ReactJS may be for you.
It helps create a low-fidelity but still composable UI — With a focus on the view layer, ReactJS allows you to create a low-fidelity but still composable user interface. This means that the architecture of your website or application is very low-key and you get a nice, clean UI without having to think too hard about where the buttons and links go.
It produces fast and reliable code — As it is built on the ReactJS foundation, the code produced by React can be relied on to run quickly and reliably. This is especially important for large websites or applications that might be dealing with a high volume of requests.
ReactJS might have come a long way from being a low-cost development tool, but that does not mean that it is getting cheaper. On the contrary, with the maturity of the tool and the rise of great new libraries such as React Native and React UI, the price of developing with ReactJS has actually gone up. If you are interested in cutting down on overheads and costs while still maintaining a high standard of quality, then ReactJS may be right for you. Otherwise, you may want to look into other tools that offer the same level of flexibility and composability.
