Notes App using React.js

A simple application developed using React.js where a user can Add/Delete notes. Each note is also timestamped. The main motivation behind developing this application was to learn React.js.


  • User can Add, Delete notes
  • Character limit of 250 characters
  • Search functionality to search Notes
  • Toggle Dark/Light Theme

Future Scope/Pending work:

  • Database for persistence
  • Update Notes
  • Add Tags, Titles, Calendars

Screenshots of Application:

Learning Outcomes:

  • React.js Hooks – Hooks allow function components to have access to state and other React features. Because of this, class components are generally no longer needed.
  • React Prop Drilling – Prop drilling is basically a situation when the same data is being sent at almost every level due to requirements in the final level.
  • React Developer Tools in Browser
  • CSS styling
