In computing, React (also known as React.js or ReactJS) is a JavaScript library[3] for building user
interfaces. It is maintained by Facebook and a community of individual developers and

React can be used as a base in the development of single-page or mobile applications. Complex React
applications usually require the use of additional libraries for state management, routing, and
interaction with an API.[7][8]

React was created by Jordan Walke, a software engineer at Facebook. He was influenced by XHP, an
HTML component framework for PHP.[9] It was first deployed on Facebook's newsfeed in 2011 and later
on Instagram.com in 2012.[10] It was open-sourced at JSConf US in May 2013.

React Native, which enables native Android, iOS, and UWP development with React, was announced at
Facebook's React.js Conf in February 2015 and open-sourced in March 2015.
On April 18, 2017, Facebook announced React Fiber, a new core algorithm of React framework library
for building user interfaces.[11] React Fiber was to become the foundation of any future improvements
and feature development of the React framework.[12][needs update]
