Web users today demand richer, more interactive applications on the web. We all want to make your users happy, and that means a lot of Javascript!  However, modern Javascript frameworks are complex, scary, and often hard to maintain.

There is a better way!  Meet ReactJS, a simple to use and shockingly fast Javascript system that is currently taking the web by storm.  ReactJS allows easy creation of truly re-usable UI components.  Instead of doing error prone manual DOM manipulation, you describe what the UI should be depending on the state of your data, and ReactJS figures out the minimum number of DOM changes to make that reality.

Why are the other frameworks so complex? It's all in how they manage state.  Flux is a simple one-way data flow pattern that ensures you don't have a big spider web of interactions between your UI components.
