    The React documentation website [Moved to: https://github.com/reactjs/react.dev]

    There have been several calls recently to remove the CRA recommendation, perhaps most notably from popular Twitter use and YouTuber Theo (t3.gg) whose pull request on the reactjs project recommending the replacement of CRA with Vite went viral on Twitter. This sparked heated criticism of CRA, including its perceived lack of features (such as native support for TypeScript or popular CSS library Tailwind), size, performance, and more.

  • create-react-app

    Set up a modern web app by running one command.

    Ultimately, though, there is one deal-breaking fact about CRA that cannot be ignored: it is no longer actively maintained. With 1.5k current unresolved issues, over 400 open PRs, and the last release over a year old, it’s safe to call CRA a dead project.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • React

    The library for web and native user interfaces

    The now-legacy documentation could originally be found at reactjs.org; this now redirects to the brand-new react.dev domain. When the new docs were still in beta, they were hosted at beta.reactjs.org, which now also redirects to react.dev. The original documentation can still be found, for those who need it, at legacy.reactjs.org. This was done to make a fresh start and clear separation between the current vs. legacy documentation.

  • codesandbox-client

    An online IDE for rapid web development

    The new docs have greatly expanded the number of interactive code examples, as well as added new challenges to allow you to practice what you’ve just learned and test your knowledge. There are 600+ new interactive code examples, sandboxes, and demos – all of which can be forked to open in codesandbox.io for bigger, more extensive changes or to be easily adapted for use in your own work. This, along with the addition of more illustrations and diagrams, was done in the hopes of making the React docs more friendly and easy to understand.
