Two new react frameworks

React is one of the biggest JavaScript Libraries. Many react frameworks like NextJs, GatsbyJs, etc., were popped in, since. So, in this blog, I will give an introduction to two new react frameworks launched recently.

Let's get started

1. Refine

Refine - A react-based framework launched in september, 2021.

As mentioned in their docs refine gives so many out-of-the-box functionalities for routing, networking, authentication, state management, internationalization, and UI(Ant design).

With Refine:

  • You have full control over UI.
  • It supports so many REST and GraphQL databases like NestJs CRUD, Airtable, Strapi, Strapi GraphQL, Supabase, Hasura, and Altogic.
  • It makes your codebase significantly smaller, by eliminating redundant code such as reducers, actions, and unit tests.
  • It uses hooks as a default way of interacting with components.

It can mainly be used for applications that need to process large volumes of data like admin panels, dashboards, etc.

2. Hydrogen

The second framework is Hydrogen by Shopify launched a few weeks ago.

Hydrogen is another React-based framework to build e-commerce sites. It is like NextJs because it provides server-side rendering. But there are limitations with this framework - currently, you can only build Shopify web storefronts.
The cool thing is you can directly host your e-commerce site on Shopify with Oxygen which Shopify will launch soon.

What do you think about these frameworks? Comment below ๐Ÿ‘‡
