Getting up and running with REACT

Getting up and running with REACT

I have developed using Angular 4, JQUERY and JavaScript, but not yet with React.

I have a MacBook and use Visual Studio Code on the Mac for my work with Angular 4 and hope to do the same with React.

How do I get React installed so I can start programming it? And same projects / tutorials you can point me to that would be a great start for me?

Thanks!

Can React be used with Angular? I really enjoy what seems like the MVC pattern built into Angular 4.

Yes React can be used with Angular - React manages the view - although I believe this is not as common since Angular 2 was released. The render engine in AngularJS was not great so in some cases people used React to drive the view to benefit from the performance - however - in later versions of Angular they made significant improvements to the render engine so there is not that much of benefit to base a project on both.

Rather than MVC think of it as buildign components - you are creating your own custom elements that render a specific way and can do specific things. On top of this they can communicate with each other - but if you think of it from a component perspective you will be on the right track.
