“Even if you haven’t accomplished the things you expected to at the start of this year, trust that setbacks and disruption are the norm rather than the exception, good times or bad, even on React.” –Rachel Nabors, Inside the React Core team
The React Core team released this talk in late December, and it’s worth watching. Dan and Lauren explain and demonstrate Server Components, a proposed feature that lets you render components on the server. Zero effect on bundle size, direct backend access, automatic client code splitting, opt-in adoption, and a modern UX with an old-school DX are some of the proposed benefits.
One of the early pitches for React was: “use as little or as much React as you need.” That’s still possible today! Sprinkle some React into your existing application, give it five minutes, and then evaluate.
