React.js is pretty cool

These days I’ve been working on Fedora Hubs, it’s a Python (Flask) application, with a React.js frontend. I know Python quite well now, but it’s the first time I dabble in the React.js framework. I must say I’m pretty impressed. It solves a lot of the issues I’ve had with dynamic web development these last years. And it manages to make writing Javascript almost enjoyable, which is not a small feat! 😉

I’m still wrestling with Webpack and ES6, but I’ll get there eventually. React is really a great way to build UIs. Plus some people are writing the Bootstrap components in React, so this is very promising.
