^ Sorry guys, you may have notice the blog post date is wrong. I won't change the URL, but thanks to how time works, this will be fixed in one month anyway :-D
One tweet and blog post by the great @aerotwist got my attention.
I often hear claims that “the DOM is slow!” and “React is fast!”, so I decided to put that to the test: https://t.co/M1RZZiyVT2 🐢vs🐇— Paul Lewis (@aerotwist) 3 Juillet 2015
I would like to express here my opinion and feedback on using React.
I've been using React for almost 2 years now, and always in performance intensive use-cases, from Games to WebGL.
Diaporama Maker is probably the most ambitious piece of software I've ever personally done.
Currently, I am able to render the whole application at 60 FPS and this is still unexpected and surprising to me (press Space to run the diaporama on diaporama.glsl.io demo). Well, more exactly, this would not have been possible without some optimizations that I'm going to detail a bit at the end of this article.
