Facebook React and ASP.NET Core 1.0

I have heard that react will replace Angular at the front end technology of choice. Please give me a bird's eye view of React, and how well it compliments an ASP.NET Core 1.0 application.

I have no experience with React, but have reviewed a bit of Angular and used Bootstrap. Please give some details about React.

Thanks

Not sure about React replacing Angular - they are subtly different with different adv / disadv.

React is a library
Angular is a framework

Some argue that the React way of doing things (more JS centric) makes it easier to code - debugging is slightly easier. Others argue that the framework benefits and features like two way binding make for easier development. Ultimately it is what suites your project. Google is behind Angular, Facebook behind React - too early to tell who will be the winner if any.

As for using React with ASP.NET - here is my take. Both Angular and React are client side solutions that bring the view logic into the browser. Communication with the server is for the purpose of fetching and sending data. Server side code is in a true Single Page Application is going to reduce to REST endpoints and API's that provide data services to to the application. So how it compliments an ASP Core app - not really a question in the context of true SPA's - any server side solution can provide REST interfaces - the app does not really care where or how the data is generated as long as it gets the JSON response it expects.

React as a library - if you are strong in JavaScript then you should find React easy to get into - it has a much shorter learning curve than Angular and sticks closely to native JS to get things done - whereas Angular needs decorators and special attributes.

Angular 2 is relatively new - so we are still waiting to see how the new component centric design of Angular 2 pans out - so far it looks promising.
