Using React with Deno
To use React with Deno, we recommend using one of the third-party frameworks below.
If you want to better understand how JSX and Deno interface under the hood, read on here.
Note: Fresh and Aleph.js provide a framework for developing React-like websites, but use an alternative foundational technology, Preact to provide a better, more performant experience.
Aleph.js is the second most popular React framework for Deno. It gives you the same sort of quick-start with React as Create-React-App. Like Next.js, Aleph provides SSR and SSG out of the box in order to allow developers to create SEO-friendly apps. In addition, Aleph provides some other built-in features that don't come out of the box in Next.js, such as:
- Hot Reloading (Using React Fast Refresh)
- ESM Import Syntax (No need for webpack)
