Components: ReactJS is a components based framework and developers should develop the components so that it can be used in application to make it more modular. It is very important to make your application modular while working on large scale projects.
Unidirectional data flow of data and Flux: React designed to implement the one-way data flow which makes it easy for the application development. Flux is a framework for keeping the data unidirectional. ReactJS uses the Flux framework for unidirectional flow of data.
RectJS License: The ReactJS is licensed under Facebook Inc. Documentation is licensed under CC BY 4.0, which allows the users to use this framework for both open-source and commercial application.
The ReactJS can be used both in client and server side as an application development framework.
ReactJS supports the development of reusable components which increases the readability and maintainability of big projects.
ReactJS is an excellent framework for dynamic web UI development but it lacks a back-end framework. So, for using ReactJS framework we need a back-end framework for serving requests generated from ReactJS applications. So, it requires a lot of technical knowledge to work with ReactJS for end-to-end application development. A lot of learning and a wide range of technological background is required to work with ReactJS for successful application development.
The learning curve of ReactJS is very high and it requires a lot of effort to learn all the techniques necessary for complete application development.
ReactJS uses JSX which is good for the application but it is a little difficult for the newcomers in ReactJS programming. Developers are finding difficulty in learning the JSX and sometimes complain about its complexity.
Due to poor documentation of this framework, developers are also finding difficulty in getting started and help in developing complex applications. But, thanks to the active community of developers who provide help in blogs and on the developer group.
