So I’ve been learning React and from what I can tell it’s NOT a backend framework and am not sure how to get data from the backend and take to the frontend.
From React’s Website
"Create React App doesn’t handle backend logic or databases; it just creates a frontend build pipeline, so you can use it with any backend you want. It uses build tools like Babel and webpack under the hood, but works with zero configuration."
Create a frontend app using the React Framework (it’ll be static from what I understand) then make some other backend and pull data with jquery that’s in JSON framework. Although that will quickly turn into a very complex project.
Now the question:
Can React be configured to handle the backend logic and databases OR will I have to create a separate backend application that the React Application connects to with the solution above.
