i have been building an api using php. The api outputs data via an array/json depending on the request.
I have used a php router to identify which paths require such data and included authorization
i have not begun to really format the html.
in the past i used jquery and ajax = super simple
recently i have been exploring other options and it seems the hot topic is react
i want to use bootstrap at least for the css (save time).
i am comfortable with jquery and not with react.js -> however both are js so i dont think the learning curve will be massive.
im not sure if i should just stick to jquery and add the ajax support to jquery.slim and keep some of the basic jquery functions built into bootstrap or dive into react.js and fetch.js
i dont want to include jquery, react and fetch as i think this is overkill as i believe there are overlaps that do not need to be there.
currently the api only returns datasets but it is easy to add in the html if needed to appease react/jquery
pros for query
- Already know
- comes with bootstrap
pros for react
- apparent performance boost
- focus on view /states
Any guidance is greatly appreciated
