Using React.js over Rails view was a hard decision for us here at BigBinary. BigBinary is a Ruby on Rails consulting company, and we have been using Ruby on Rails for the last nine years.

Over the years we have seen the shift that more and more of our clients are asking for React.js to be the view layer of their applications instead of Rails view.

Today, more than 90% of the applications that we are building for our clients use React.js. Therefore, we can't claim that this book is well maintained unless we include lessons on integrating React to Rails application.

So, in this book, we will be using React.js to write frontend code. If you are a beginner to React and JavaScript, you can use the materials mentioned in the below section to learn the fundamentals. We won't recommend going into depth about React.js, given that this book is more oriented towards Ruby on Rails.

We will be developing a simple demo application using Rails and React in the upcoming chapters. Stay tuned!
