Discussion on: Question about React

I would start with Next.js as a framework. It brings in React Router and abstracts a lot of complexity from it.

I would avoid state management tool until the complexity warranted it. Hooks are promising, but apparently Mobx is more performant.

Stop using bootstrap.... when I give exams, too often developers fall to using bootstrap, and when I ask them to solve a basic problem without it they fail. Learn CSS.

React Form is bloated. Avoid it.

I personally dislike UI kits. They bring in a lot of unnecessary tools. Role your own.

If styling is all you need help with, use tailwindcss. It does not solve making a button look pretty, but you will learn css in a way that is constructive.
