What is a REACTO

A "reacto" is a small token / piece of code that can be embedded into any text to give it the power to update itself dynamically. Thus a "reacto" turns a normal text into a dynamic text or a reactive text. The term "reacto" was made as a 'short' from "reactive token".

Where to Use

Reactos can be used while writing stories / tales in the new-age dynamic story writing platform Reactale to give your tales reactive abilities and come to life.

How to Use

There are various to get started with reactos,

  • Official Docs - Everything on all the reactos available e.g definitions, examples, use-cases etc.
  • The CheatSheet - One page that sums up everything, for a quick lookup or later reference.
  • The Playground - Try the examples given or write something of your own, it's a playground.

Whom to Thank Blame

Reacto was created and is being developed as a sub-project of Reactale by Suman Barick.
