That would be a common starting point for a simple React app.
The great thing about this is that almost everyone gets it straight away.
Had this years last day at work yesterday. What’s the first thing I do when I get home? Started installing Arch Linux on my “new-old” Thinkpad.
Today is the day where I start to clean up in the 1TB black hole I’ve been throwing stuff into for way too many years (aka Dropbox)
This is a typical Hello World implementation in React. It shows one of two ways you can write components, and how you pass data to a components. Most React Components are written as classes Extending from the React.Component class, and the only method a component have to implement is “render”. It returns either a new component or markup.
One side note: a component have to return one root node. For example:
We often compare React, Angular and Vue. I get why. But it isn’t the best. Because both Vue and Angular are more complete solutions for building web apps, while React are just a library for dealing with the user interface part of it. And leave other things like communicating with API’s, routing and global state to others.
The bad thing about this approach is that you need to learn more, and there are no “standards”. But the good thing about this is that you can chose the best option for what you are building, and only increase the complexity as you need it.
React is based on components instead of a variant of the well known MVC model. In a MVC model you have the model (data), the interface (view) and the controller; the controller is the one that controls everything and are doing the work. A component based system on the other hand is based on the idea that you make many small components that are fully independet and combine them to build what every you are building, They can be pure UI components or pure wrapper components; or a combination. A wrapper component is a component with just logic.
The biggest difference between the two from a practical stand point is the structure. A MVC system does a lot of the organisation for you, but makes it harder to re-organise everything. When you use React you typically start with a single file, then you divide it into different files and slowly make it more complex as you need it.
That means that the the structure rarely is more complicated than it has to be.

Got my Pilot Metal Falcon today. First thought: why doesn’t the Vanishing Point have this converter?
What I recommend that you do today, if you want to learn React is to start with “create-react-app”. It is a very good package for starting a new react app without having to worry about anything but react. You might still want to learn how to configure webpack, but I don’t think you need so unless you have some particular needs or have a larger app. I have deployed smaller apps into production using create-react-app.
Lightroom CC has the essential options, where the old Lightroom had options for every single possible thing imaginable. For example the old “export” have been replaced with a “Save To” with three options File Type, Location and Size. But my impression is that it is much slower than the old export.
