Reactivity (Coding)
In this video, we explore the implementation of reactivity in our app. We start by renaming the app and output widgets, and then demonstrate how to create a reactive calculation using the reactive() function. This approach allows us to efficiently update and manage calculations while enhancing code readability. The video also introduces the concept of reactive values and their significance in developing responsive apps.
