Migrating to React

Color, so you’re know ready to use React in your frontend! What’s next? Start from scratch? If you’re starting a small side-project or a proof-of-concept, it’s perfect! If it’s an existing web app with at least 100k lines of code, you don’t really want to start from scratch.

So the next best option is to slowly introduce React into your current frontend until you have enough Reactified components that the migration would be more manageable.
