Developers are often reluctant to adapt to the new framework since they need to allocate
time in training and adapt. This study aims to determine the need for benchmarking JS
and ReactJS application in a developer’s viewpoint contributing detailed attention to React
features and in this context, evaluating the gap in comparing JS and React applications by
considering the performance as principal criteria.
To test the hypothesis, considered optimised methods, coding standards, and best practices
using proper design and structure, using event listeners in JS, react-virtualized list, avoiding
mutated values, and considering the production environment in React JS applications. The
results showed a massive difference in the performance between the applications in hightraffic
situations since the React application uses virtual DOM that rendered what is needed
On this basis, React should be considered for developing apps as its advantages outweigh
its disadvantages, making it easy to migrate for any organisations or developers.
