Building custom renderers with react

Satyajit Sahoo at ReactFoo 2018 Pune

React has enabled us to write complex UIs with a great declarative API. Under the hood, React’s reconciler optimizes by diffing the old and new tree, usually known as virtual DOM diffing. The latest version of React uses a Fiber architecture to implement the reconciler. The reconciler backs custom renderers like React DOM and React Native to target various platforms. In this talk we’ll implement a custom renderer with react-reconciler. We’ll also take a brief look at various custom renderers in the wild to have an idea of what can be achieved.
