Finally Reacting!!!

  • React first creates an exact copy of the DOM
  • Then React figures out which part is new and only updates that specific part in the Virtual DOM
  • Finally, React copies only the new parts of the Virtual DOM to the actual DOM, rather than completely rewriting it.

So what is this JSX?

JSX (JavaScript XML) is a syntax extension to JavaScript used by React. JSX is basically used to write HTML tags inside JavaScript. Later, the JSX code will be translated into normal JavaScript, by Babel.
