In this tutorial we'll be demonstrating how to build a detached, or headless DNN frontend with React.js. By headless, I mean we'll be building a basic standalone dynamic website completely detached from the DNN system, and any data will be pulled from the DNN backend via a REST API built with the 2SXC module.

Today, we'll be working on an example app to display a list of movies, and then in the next part we'll be significantly improving this react app to include some excellent Bootstrap 4 layout and some movie ordering and filtering techniques.

React.js was developed by Facebook and is at the cutting edge of front end development, and it's quickly becoming the industry standard javascript library of choice worldwide.

2SXC is a fantastic module allowing us to turn DNN into a decent content management system. Recent new features allow us to visually build REST API routes.
