Js and jsx are the file extensions used in web development. Both of them are used to enhance the webpage but there must be a reason why we have two different extensions. This article will discuss the difference between js and jsx file extension.

Difference between JS and JSX

JS means javascript, so it is for javascript programming and JSX is to create react components. JSX is mainly used to make the process easier for programmers to create react components.

JS file

JS file is a file containing a program in text format as usual of javascript code that is used to execute javascript instructions in web pages. This file can contain different functions for checking if a user has filled the form or not, checking if the input is  char or  number, and many other functions. These  functions  make a webpage  a lot powerful  in a different  way.
 

JSX file

JSX is a react extension, which lets us write javascript code that looks like HTML. Or we can say that JSX is  an HTML-like syntax used by react. This syntax is used by  preprocessors to change HTML-like code to standard  javascript that can be used by the javascript engine.

Hope this will help.
