How can I optimize the performance of a React.js application by minimizing unnecessary re-renders and improving efficiency?

Asked 5 months ago

In my React.js application, I've noticed performance issues due to excessive rendering. What techniques can I use to optimize the app's performance and reduce unnecessary re-renders?

To optimize a React.js application, focus on minimizing unnecessary re-renders and improving rendering efficiency. Use `React.memo` for functional components to prevent re-renders when props haven't changed. Also, employ the `shouldComponentUpdate()` lifecycle method in class components for similar control.

Hooks like `useMemo()` and `useCallback()` are valuable for memorizing computations and callbacks, preventing re-computation or re-creation on each render. Efficient state management is also crucial – avoid lifting state unnecessarily, and consider using context or state management libraries for complex state logic.

Lastly, monitor component renders and optimize them by breaking down large components into smaller, more manageable ones.
