Hit the ground running with React, the open source technology from Facebook for building rich web applications fast. Updated for the latest React release, the second edition of this hands-on guide shows you how to build React components and organize them into maintainable large-scale apps. If you're familiar with JavaScript syntax, you're ready to get started.

Through the course of this book, author Stoyan Stefanov helps web developers and programmers build a complete single-page application. You'll quickly learn why some developers consider React the key to the web app development puzzle.

  • Set up React and write your first "Hello, World" web app
  • Create and use custom React components alongside generic DOM components
  • Build a data table component that lets you edit, sort, search, and export its contents
  • Master the JSX syntax
  • Use built-in Hooks and create your own custom ones
  • Manage the app's data flow with reducers and contexts
  • Use Create React App to take care of the build process and focus on React itself
  • Build a complete custom app that lets you store data on the client
