Is learning React.js worth in 2022

It's 2022 and React js is going stronger than ever.

Learning React is not only fun but it is the most demanding frontend skill in the market today.

But what made React so popular that hundreds of companies adopted it over the years and are offering job openings with very very high compensation?

Back in 2015, when I first learnt about React, I felt it was so messed up and oh boy was I wrong !

The way React has abstracted the traditional way of DOM manipulation has taken the developer community out of the trouble, Even today, DOM manipulation is considered problematic if done with vanilla JS. React's JSX was the magic ingredient that made the job smooth for web developers.

Abstraction is very powerful.

Nobody would want to write code in low-level languages nowadays. In fact, most people are not even aware of it. As languages became high-level, the frameworks and libraries started abstracting even more on top. There were some performance and compilation bottlenecks but the whole idea was worth it. The pros outweighed the cons.

React is very lightweight and your web application can increase in size as you add features. React can be added to only a portion of your web app. React's virtual DOM is faster to manipulate.

The list goes on and on.
