Following are the basic introduction of React or React Native:

ReactJS is a JavaScript library, supporting both front-end web and being run on a server, for building user interfaces and web applications.

React Native is a mobile framework that compiles to native app components, allowing you to build native mobile applications for different platforms (iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile) in JavaScript that allows you to use ReactJS to build your components, and implements ReactJS under the hood.
