React


In the Indeed study, React was by far and away the fastest-growing job skill from both a job seeker and an employer point of view. Employer searches for the term increased by 229% in 2017, while job seeker searches skyrocketed 313%.

Created by Facebook, React is an open source JavaScript library for creating interactive user interfaces. It is often used along with React Native to create cross-platform mobile apps that run natively on both iOS and Android devices. Recently, it's become tremendously popular with mobile developers. According to GitHub, it was the seventh most frequently forked open source project in 2017, and React Native was the project with the second most contributors.
