Why are you using React?


React is the most used library for frontend development these days, and I would like to better understand why that is. So if you use, have used or are planning to use React, I am curious to read from you what were/are the reasons to adopt it, for example:

  • Do you find it better than others, and if so for what reason(s)?
  • Because it is the most used?
  • Others chose it for you?
  • Compatibility with other tools?
  • You didn’t stop to think about alternatives?
  • Other reasons?
