My first reaction to the React JavaScript Library

ReactOk, I may be a little late to the game but recently I have been studying up on Facebooks/Instagrams React JavaScript library and I have to say I am fairly impressed with it. They say it is the V in MVC (model view controller). Outside of the fact that React applications can run both locally and on the server via Node (which I am sure you know I am a big fan of Node) it also comes with a React Native library!

React Native enables you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms using a consistent developer experience based on JavaScript and React. The focus of React Native is on developer efficiency across all the platforms you care about — learn once, write anywhere. Facebook uses React Native in multiple production apps and will continue investing in React Native. – link

This means you can now truly “learn once and run everywhere”.  The great news is you can start coding now on BlueMix. Check out this article to see how React Native can be developed and deployed on BlueMix. If you are doing a cool project using React or React Native send me a link to your post, I would like to check it out.
