Why Learn React

React saves you time and money on development because it's component-based. You can break down an interface into reusable components that allow you to build dynamic user interfaces.

ReactJS is an indisputably great language for programming web pages and applications, and within that JS spectrum, it is still unchallenged. There are other players in the arena, but professional web app developers would confirm that React still remains on top of others in 2022.

React development has emerged as the future of web creation with its extra versatility and ease. It has a fast learning curve for new developers. If you're not an expert web developer, React can be an easy way to introduce yourself to a lot of HTML, CSS and JS concepts all at the same time.

ReactJS is extremely intuitive to work with and provides interactivity to the layout of any UI. Plus, it enables fast and quality assured application development that in turn saves tome for both - clients and developers.

What makes React such a desirable library to learn is that it doesn't replace HTML. It takes advantage of HTML's popularity and strength as the most popular programming language, by letting you use a very similar syntax to HTML to build interfaces and add dynamic features to it using JavaScript. You will easily grasp the components right away even without guidance from another developer. It is super easy!

Apart from the above trends, there are many reasons implying that ReactJS is potentially the future of web development for example; ReactJS has overtaken jQuery and become the most used web framework by software developers worldwide. It's one of the fastest-growing and most in-demand technologies right now. Even if you don't end up using React for your work, learning front-end concepts and knowing JavaScript at a high level can provide you with many other opportunities.

Happy coding!

Personally I prefer Vue's single file component structure but it is hard to argue against the popularity of React, especially since they introduced functional hooks.
React classes Vs Vue2 options API was and easy win for Vue (for me). React functions Vs Vue3 composition is a much closer call.
I'm not close enough to Angular or svelte to comment on them
