Facebook announces React Fiber, a rewrite of its React framework


It’s interesting that its:

… an updated framework that is still fully backwards compatible with existing React-based applications.

So it sounds like a drop-in replacement for the previous incarnation which is now even more “responsive”!


This looks really great. New APIs but old ones mostly work is a good thing. Definitely not like the Angular 1 to Angular 2 :stuck_out_tongue:

Have they mentioned anything about timeline? My guess is 6 months out!




That’s an interesting progression: it’s 99% ready and then they decide to start making it less ready…


Two steps forward one step back.
(because opposites, react… rimshot)
