In the avalanche of front-end JavaScript frameworks, React.js stands out due to its design around a reactive data flow. Allowing only one-way data binding greatly simplifies the rendering logic and avoids many of the issues that commonly plague applications written with other frameworks. We're seeing the benefits of React.js on a growing number of projects, large and small, while at the same time we continue to be concerned about the state and the future of other popular frameworks like AngularJS. This has led to React.js becoming our default choice for JavaScript frameworks.

One benefit of the ongoing avalanche of front-end JavaScript frameworks is that occasionally a new idea crops up that makes us think. React.js is a UI/view framework in which JavaScript functions generate HTML in a reactive data flow. It differs significantly from frameworks like AngularJS in that it only allows one-way data bindings, greatly simplifying the rendering logic. We have seen several smaller projects achieve success with React.js, and developers are drawn to its clean, composable approach to componentization.

One benefit to the ongoing avalanche of front-end JavaScript frameworks is that occasionally, a new idea crops up that makes us think.  React.js is a UI/View framework in which JavaScript functions generate HTML in a reactive data flow.  Although we are wary of mixing code and markup, it results in UI components that are nicely encapsulated and composable.  React.js is getting a lot of developer attention and will benefit from more tools and examples becoming available.
