    React

    React is a JavaScript library for building user interfaces. It helps you to build encapsulated components that manage their own state, as well as combine them into complex UIs. Component logic is written in JavaScript (as opposed to templates) so that rich data can easily be passed through the app and keep state out of the DOM.

    Moreover, React employs declarative views to make your code more predictable and easier to debug. You can design a simple view for each state in your application, and React will efficiently update and render the appropriate components when your data changes.

Once upon a time, there were a number of popular JavaScript libraries such as jQuery, MooTools, Prototype, Dojo and YUI created for accomplishing common JavaScript tasks in a browser-agnostic way. These libraries provided functions across a wide swath of browser functionality, from events, the DOM, to AJAX.  Nowadays, a lot of the newer libraries are targeting mobile app development.  Here are some of the top JS libraries right now.
