Did you know why you need to use react and react-dom when building React.js projects?

Because React just provides the logic but depends on a renderer to actually output stuff which is where react-dom comes in to render the UI to the browser DOM.

There is a lesser-known package called react-reconciler which is the package react-dom is using and it is what you will use to create your own custom React.js renderers.
