If I understand correctly, ReactJS ships with MIT FB license.

I will plan create a repository with code based on using ReactJS as dependency in my SPA.

In my app, I want want to use another open-source license, but React MIT lisence require link to original copyright. Should I:

  • use text of original license

  • link it in each file of project

  • or can I create some like 3rdparty.txt in root of project and copy/paste the original lisence text from github (react/LICENSE at
    master · facebook/react · GitHub)

What is a correct way to do it ?

You just need to keep the notice in the source files.

You do not need to put anything in your application.
