Under the cat more about the textbook and the list of changes.

First is the text. With legacy.gitbook you can still download PDF / epub / mobi. I did not find this option in the new version and, unfortunately, the new version of gitbook does not work well without VPN.

Secondly - this is the same textbook sparingly for "water". Text, pictures, source code.

In the process of learning a simple scenario is described: news feed (from a json file) + the ability to add news. No flirting with the backend. Most of the development goes straight to index.html, and only at the end we get acquainted with create-react-app .

The purpose of this tutorial is to introduce React to those who are already familiar with html / css and have an idea of ​​the basics of js. The library is added as a regular script. It was convenient at the time of jQuery and I did not redo the training formula.
