React Fibre and React – What We Should Know

React is also popularly known as React JS. It is a JavaScript library that is mainly used for building user interfaces or UI. It is mostly maintained by the social media giant Facebook and other companies and developers that form a community. It is versatile in the sense that it can be used as a base either for a single page or for the development of a mobile application. Its optimal purpose is to record rapidly changing data in the quickest way possible. If the React applications are complex, then it will need additional libraries for the purposes of routing, interaction etc. On the other hand, React Fibre is the reimplementation of the core algorithm of React and this is an ongoing process. It completely and internally has rewritten React. Even if it is definitely a rewrite, it is also compatible backwards. With Fibre, the developers intend to improve the compatibility in areas like animation, gestures etc. The standing out feature is incremental rendering. Just as the name suggests, it is the capability to divide the rendering tasks into small portions and then spread it across many frames.

Since it is a reimplementation of the React core algorithm, it is considered a virtual stack frame. Here each stack frame will contain information that is stored in the form of a heap. Such preservation has mainly two benefits. One is that you have the complete control of the data structure and only the relevant information will be processed.

Another feature to consider is that it was not made to perform faster. Its main goal is to make the user interface and navigation as smooth as possible. Therefore, even though it might not be as fast as you expect, it brings out the best results. One of the common performance issues is scheduling. React developers have come up with many features to tackle this. Varying according to the different platforms, React makes use of renderers for displaying the user interface elements. Likewise, in React Fibre, the rendering process is divided into two parts.

Reconcile: In this phase, the work that is in progress is built and the changes will be listed.

Commit: The changes will now be performed into the DOM or native UI in this phase.

Breaking down work into chunks helps in making React more responsive to browser events but it also sets out priorities. Different priorities are given to different sets of user interface updates. Animations and other such updates are given priority while the other updates can be paused. After the greater priority ones are committed and reconciled, the lower priority ones go through the same process. Thus, React Fibre has a built-in scheduling program, small-sized bundles and code base that is better and more approachable. It also has great features to handle any errors. Because of flow typing, there are greater error boundaries.
