REACT DEVELOPMENT SERVICES
React brings the modern to software interfaces
React is de facto component-based making each chunk of functionality highly reusable. Components encapsulate logic, contain their own styling and manage their own state, enabling Mercury developers to assemble complex UIs from proven and self-contained pieces over and over again.
Typical application maintenance tasks like interface updates, logic changes and layout optimization often turn into a headache because of code interdependencies. React’s colocation of content, logic, styling and state control greatly simplifies the maintenance load and keeps code cross-talk to a minimum.
Search Engine Friendly
For any public-facing online business, Search Engine Optimization is the gateway to boost user traffic. React significantly reduces page load time through faster rendering speed which is an increasingly important SEO factor. Finally, with its ability to run on the server, React can return a rendered “regular” webpage to the browser.
Facebook’s architectural philosophy positions React as a light interface-only framework – React does not introduce a full stack into your application. That means any architecture data source can drive your React application – it is agnostic to server technology.

PROGRESSIVE WEB APPS
React sets the table for a PWA
Unlike typical web applications, PWAs can be network independent, which allows them to work when users are offline or have an unreliable network connection. This is accomplished using Service Workers to store data and content locally and APIs to revisit and cache page requests and responses, allowing users to browse previously-viewed content.
PWAs have the ability to be installed on a device, making them accessible from mobile device home screens via an app icon. When users click the app’s icon to access the PWA it opens up on the device outside of a browser and operates practically identical to a native application. PWAs don’t have to be installed to function (they just fine in a browser) but doing so does enable performance and “feel” of a native application, thereby reducing friction from the re-engagement process.
Native apps are distributed by curated app stores (a classic “walled garden”) that includes a review process, even for updates. This means that, first, Apple or Google may choose to not allow your app into their app store. Secondly, this means that point releases or bug fixes cannot be rolled out at will through stores – they need to be reviewed. Since PWAs are web apps, we can publish them at will without any review or delay.
