Build high-performance applications with React

React makes complex interfaces easy with small, reusable components, consistent behavior, and rich interactions. We’ll work with you to build out your React web app while leveling up your team’s skills to keep the progress going after we're gone.

Let's talk

Get results, fast

See immediate results for your team with React

Some JS frameworks require you to make a big investment in their infrastructure in order to start getting any results, but React allows you to start replacing components of your web app piece-by-piece. It is highly effective for teams because it encourages the reuse of UI patterns and requires a readable syntax.

Level up Your Team

Learn alongside the React experts

React.js

We’ve built many single page applications at thoughtbot using Backbone.js Angular, Ember, Elm and others. We prefer to use React and Redux when we’re building a full client side application as opposed to a website with some rich interactions.

Redux

Redux is a Flux Library we use to maintain state when using React. Using Redux you define actions which you use to modify your state. This prevents bugs that were common when using plain React.js.

React Native

React Native gives our team the chance to write fast, native applications on Android and iOS in a single codebase while sharing large amounts of logic. This means we can ship faster to all platforms.
