    How React Works

    The React UI loop follows these steps:

    1. You have data
    2. That data gets displayed
    3. The data updates (by user input, or a fetch from the server, etc)
    4. The UI updates

    The React "magic" is in step 4 - React automatically updates the UI based on your changing data in a performant way. That means you can focus on your data and UI layout, and NOT on how you would have to update the DOM to show those changes.
