The video below show in details what the React team are experimenting, and personally I wouldn’t comment before making any real benchmark. Notice that React Server Components are still in research and development, and the React team are sharing this work in the spirit of transparency and to get initial feedback from the React community.
If you want to check them out, we recommend to go in the following order:
- Watch the talk to learn about React Server Components and see the demo.
- Clone the demo to play with React Server Components on your computer.
- Read the RFC (with FAQ at the end) for a deeper technical breakdown and to provide feedback.
Most web applications use ReactJs for the client side UI, and any other programming language for the server side, let’s say PHP for example. Now if ReactJs will add its server components you will have to manage both PHP and React, or find a balance between both, or maybe abandon one of them PHP or React ? What do you think ?
