React is a new technology when compared with other technologies in the market. It came into existence in 2011, when Jordan Walke, a software engineer at Facebook created the library. React is influenced by the likes of XHP which is a simple HTML component framework for PHP. The first use case of React was in Facebook’s newsfeed in 2011. Later on, it is picked up by Instagram to use it in their system. With time, React grew, and Facebook decided to make it open source in May 2013 at JSConf US. In 2015 JSConf, React Native was announced which enabled easy development with Android and iOS deveopment. In the same year, React Native was open-sourced to help it grow.
