Can I not be against, yet still have concerns?  :)

I'm glad you so gallantly dumped Angular, which I would have raised my hand Against since that thing obsolete past code every 6 months. But I do not know React. Could you sell me more the big plusses to do that. What will it replace, do you have an example? What about all the code waiting approval right now, will it become obsolete because non-Reactive ?


All the big previous changes (bootstrap, dbix...) were not without pain, espeicially for those outside the core, not coding these technologies 24/7.

And how do you see React evolving in the next 5 years? Keeping up with bootstrap requires huge effort (if/when we upgrade).

Again, I know little. Please don't ask me if I'm against, but give me your big sales pitch. :)

Please, if anybody is *against* the use of React in Koha, please voice your concerns!

    My +1 for React. Angular requires a specific skill, other than

    I have my proof of concept for using React within Koha completed!
    You can see it here:

    <https://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=17297>

    Please give it a try!

    So, I've written this development ( at least in part ) in both
    Angular and React. I know Angular 2 is out but here are my
    thoughts so far.

    1) It's much easier to think in React than in Angular. React is
    for the most part just Javascript. It's far less opinionated than
    Angular. They saying goes React is Javascript and Angular is
    Angular. I think the flexibility of React works well within the
    Koha ecosystem.

    2) Writing React feels much more like programming. I think it's
    much faster to develop reactive and ajax features in React than
    it is using jQuery.

    3) React makes it pretty easy to create widgets that we can drop
    in to a given page and have just work. Pretty much anything that
    shows up on multiple pages would make for a good React widget.
    Think the holds table which is on the checkouts page and the
    patron details page. It is ajaxified now, but a far far cleaner
    version could be written in React.

    4) React is just a view layer. Angular is a full MVC framework
    with many pieces we don't really need.

    I think React is probably the way to go for Koha. I like Angular
    but for Koha in particular, I think React is a better fit. I
    think we really need to get this decision made as soon as
    possible. If anyone has opinions, please let everyone know!
