Introducing React Native Android Fragment – In The Hudl – Medium

  • So today we are announcing our first open source project for React Native at Hudl.React Native Android Fragment: Native Android Fragment does exactly what its name implies.
  • It helps to facilitate the development of a React Native application, for a pre-existing Android application that relies on the framework’s Fragment class.
  • It can be downloaded via jitpack and its versioning will attempt to always follow that of React Native’s major.minor versions.Our Android app originated around 2013 when Fragments were the Android standard and we’ve stuck with them ever since.
  • For anyone else that has tried to use React Native, you may also realize that support for Fragments is non-existent.
  • We hope this library, although small, may help others to get started quickly into the React Native ecosystem.

@HudlEngineering: Introducing React Native Android Fragment: An easy way to load React Native components as fragments –

At Hudl we offer mobile applications on iOS and Android. Both of these platforms have their own unique take on features but for the most part they strive for parity.

As our products have grown this parity has become harder to manage. Our goal is to offer rich mobile experiences without sacrificing quality. That is why, about 1 year ago, we began researching React Native.

We have learned a lot during the past year, and we hope to share some of that with you. So today we are announcing our first open source project for React Native at Hudl.

React Native Android Fragment does exactly what its name implies. It helps to facilitate the development of a React Native application, for a pre-existing Android application that relies on the framework’s Fragment class. It can be downloaded via jitpack and its versioning will attempt to always follow that of React Native’s major.minor versions.

Our Android app originated around 2013 when Fragments were the Android standard and we’ve stuck with them ever since. For anyone else that has tried to use React Native, you may also realize that support for Fragments is non-existent. We’re hoping this project will help.

To use this project, it’s as simple as creating a new ReactFragment with your specific properties:

Check out the README.md for more details.

We plan to add support for Continuous Integration as well as Testing in the near future. We hope this library, although small, may help others to get started quickly into the React Native ecosystem. And as always, please don’t hesitate to submit issues or pull requests!
