Can I convert my webpage to use a framework easily?

Hey, I'm making a website, it's using HTML/CSS/Vanilla JS. I'm interested in eventually using a framework to enhance it (mainly making sure it doesn't need to reload everytime a feature is used). It's a small project, but I feel like using a framework like React (or perhaps something lighter like HyperApp) would help propel it to the next level for my portfolio.

Is it possible to finish creating my website/app and easily put a framework around it, or should I scrap it and remake it completely?

Hello mryoung,

I don't think it would be too hard, and you mention React as an option you're looking into which I would recommend.

Treehouse has some great courses on React and they will teach you how to do exactly what you're asking for, so that could be a good start?

I hope that helps,


Thanks ???
