JSX tag has tag name, attributes and children which make it look like xml.

React uses JSX for templating instead of regular JavaScript. It is not necessary to use it, however, following are some pros that come with it. It is faster because it performs optimization while compiling code to JavaScript.


It is also type-safe and most of the errors can be caught during compilation.

It makes it easier and faster to write templates, if you are familiar with HTML.

We have used babel 6 in the project setup. In case you want to switch to babel 7, install the required packages of babel using @babel/babel-package-name.

We will create project setup and use webpack to compile jsx with react to normal JavaScript using Babel. To start the project setup, run the commands given below for babel, react and webpack installation.

Now, we will install the necessary packages we need to work with – babel ,webpack and jsx −. Here is the package.json after installation −. Now will create a webpack.config.js file, which will have all the details to bundle the js files and compile it into es5 using babel.

To run webpack using server, there is something called webpack-server.
