Jekyll + React Any Ideas ?

Out of curiosity - why and where would you use React? I had a quick look at your blog and React seems like total overkill. You are serving static HTML files, you don't have moving parts and your website doesn't have (and probably doesn't need) a changing state. You won't get any benefit from React's Virtual DOM and you don't need React's components, because you have Jekyll's own template system (Liquid).
There is a big possibility of overcomplicating the whole build process by introducing new dependencies and end up serving unneeded JS code to your users.
I have done this.
To get started, I went to google.com and typed "using jekyll with react"
Shockingly, that gave me this result:
I followed that tutorial, and lo and behind, the two are integrated and it works great.
