React is the highest JavaScript library in awareness and usage according to State of JS 2021, a yearly survey on JavaScript libraries. This means that React is the most popular JavaScript library or framework. This massive adoption has created job openings on the framework and kept its developers in high demand. But even with its popularity, React has a lot of competition as new JavaScript frameworks are being built every day that try to be more efficient and improve front-end development.

Alternatives to React is a series of articles looking at different JavaScript front-end frameworks. All the examined frameworks are like React in syntax and operation, but they may have benefits React doesn’t provide.

From the official documentation website for Solid JS, it promises “Simple and performant reactivity for building user interfaces”.

Solid JS is a declarative User Interface (UI) library for building web applications. It is similar to React, Angular, Vue, and other JavaScript frameworks. A declarative UI library is a library in which fully functional UI elements and all their characteristics and behavior are predefined and declared wherever they are meant to be used. Solid JS might be shrugged off as “just another JavaScript framework”, perhaps even a React fork (a copy or clone) but a little digging will reveal that it isn’t.
