React is a clean, efficient library for creating sophisticated data-driven user interfaces.

Flexible React Development

React started as a library for building sophisticated user interfaces for web applications in 2013. At that time, most JavaScript frameworks and libraries were focused on simplifying the modification of the web page's markup so that developers could keep the UI in sync with the application's state.

React has established itself as a leading technology in creating web applications with complex, highly interactive user interfaces. React allows an application's interface to be broken down into small components. These components are automatically synchronized with the application's state. This synchronization frees developers from manually updating the page whenever something changes on the backend. By doing this, React allows developers to focus on the application's business logic rather than directly manipulating the HTML on the page.

Sophisticated JavaScript-based applications are what SitePen is all about. Our team has extensive experience with all of today's development platforms, including React. This experience allows us to review each client's requirements and make informed recommendations for a technology stack that will provide the ideal balance between productivity, performance, and development time. Our experience allows us to recognize when libraries, such as React, enhance the development process or if other options might be better to consider.

React Development Services

React's popularity has lead to a rich ecosystem of applications that can be built with it. We are ready to help you with whatever type of project you are looking to build.

React Web Development

When React was released in 2013, SitePen immediately saw how its reactive nature and uni-directional data flow could revolutionize web application development. Our team became familiar with its new paradigms and started to experiment with how React could be used to streamline the development process. We now have almost ten years of experience with this library and have used it extensively on its own and combined with related technologies such as Redux. Our deep understanding of the React ecosystem allows us to develop complex applications quickly and efficiently.

React Native Development

React has quickly become one of the leading technologies in the web application space due to its clean workflow and browser-agnostic architecture. In 2015, React took on the additional challenge of providing a unified development experience to the mobile market with the introduction of React Native. While React Native appears to be very similar to the original, the changes required to run natively on mobile devices are substantial.

Our development team took on the challenge of adopting this new platform by expanding upon the knowledge gained from using React on the web and combining it with our experience with native development for Android and iOS. The combination of these two skill sets has allowed us to leverage the productivity of React while still supporting the unique patterns that each platform has evolved. This allows true multi-platform mobile applications to be built with a very high degree of code reuse.

Custom React Development Services

While the most common uses for React are to create web or mobile applications, SitePen can support many unique scenarios. We have worked with clients to integrate React into legacy applications to allow new features to be added with modern tools while leaving the existing code, with its complex business rules, untouched. We can also provide more targeted services, such as performance improvement projects and truly cross-platform development with code sharing between native and web applications.

React Enterprise Services

Enterprise applications offer a unique set of challenges that React is very good at providing solutions for. These applications must often manage large amounts of disparate data and present them to the user differently, depending on what they are trying to accomplish. React's nature dramatically simplifies the creation of these data-heavy applications by allowing the application's state to be stored in a centralized location with the user-interface components automatically updating as that state evolves. React is a perfect fit when combined with a Flux-based state management system, such as Redux. Projects like Redux provide predictability and stability when working with large monolithic application states.

Technologies We Use

React is no longer just a single library. An entire ecosystem has evolved to augment and enhance React's feature set.

Enterprise Industry Expertise

Among SitePen's greatest strengths is its wide-ranging experience across multiple industries. We have worked with some of the largest names in multiple markets with each engagement serving to refine our ability to address each enterprise's individual needs.

Choosing the Right React
Development Team

Few would dispute the idea that React has radically changed how web applications are built. The right React development team not only recognizes this new paradigm but embraces it fully while respecting its limitations.

The best React developers understand how to leverage React's strengths to create fast, error-free, well-structured, and maintainable solutions. These teams use unidirectional data flows to centralize business rules into clear, easily tested modules that encourage reuse and future enhancement.

The very best React development teams also understand the library's limitations and how best to overcome them. There are no perfect frameworks or libraries, and React is no exception. There are times when the most elegant implementation of a feature involves overriding some of React's patterns. The knowledge of when to do this is only gained through experience, both with React and the larger web application space.

Benefits of Using React Development

React has a relatively simple feature set, a fact that might be surprising given its tremendous popularity. The secret to unlocking React's power lies in the development team's ability to understand how to use reactive components to simplify the application's business logic and state management solutions.

When used by an experienced team, React is an excellent choice for small- to medium-sized applications. It provides enough structure and guidance to allow applications of this size to be created with a high degree of confidence that the final product will be stable and open to future enhancement.

Very small and very large applications might not be a good fit, however. For very small applications, React might be too heavy and force the application to become over-engineered. For very large applications, React might not be structured enough. Large applications often benefit from a more directed approach to organizing business logic and managing state than what React provides.

React FAQs

Why Should My Business Use React?

React is one of the top libraries for creating web applications and cross-platform mobile applications today. This popularity makes it relatively easy to find engineers with previous experience with it. Additionally, React's semi-opinionated nature makes it an ideal choice for many applications where some structure is valuable, but too much would lead to an over-engineered product.

What Are Some Features of the React Library?

React's primary feature is its concept of reactive visual components. These components are composed together to make a user-interface that reflects the application's ever-changing internal state. This reactive nature simplifies development by allowing the development team to cleanly separate the application's business logic from its visual presentation.

What’s the Benefit of Using React?

It has been said that the best libraries and frameworks make it obvious which solution is best. React is very good at guiding developers to write code that is highly performant and easily tested. Its use of reactive components, unidirectional dataflows, and centralized state management, when paired with Redux, lays the foundation for a stable application architecture that tends to be well structured and highly maintainable.
