We Rebuilt a React Native App with Flutter – GeekyAnts Blog

We Rebuilt a React Native App with Flutter  #mobile_app_development #google #react #flutter

  • Unlike Flutter’s Flat App, in React Native we had to use third-party libraries since React Native does not have a UI components library of its own.
  • React Native Elements, React Native Material Design and Shoutem are other similar UI libraries that are available to the user.
  • Flat App in Flutter performs better than the one in React Native because it has minimal interaction with the native code.
  • Here’s the Drawer from the Flutter Flat App alongwith its React Native equivalent called SideBar: – React Native Flat App’s SideBar ComponentFlutter FlatApp’s Drawer WidgetInkwell defines a rectangular area of a Material that responds to touch.
  • In React Native, we don’t need to create a whole new component to create this ripple effect.

Last year, we launched a React Native starter kit called Flat App. This kit contains a flat UI design along with Redux and NativeBase components for iOS and Android application. Flat App is basically…

What the React Native docs forgot to tell you about animations

  • The last animation function is Animated.decay() and has some specific use cases.
  • Based on that and a deceleration value, it calculates what the end value is and how long the animation should take.
  • this.animatedValue = new = new Animated.ValueXY({x: 15, y: 0, y: 0});getTranslateTransformThis method with transform your {x: 10, y: 200} value to a directly usable transform.
  • this.animatedValue = new Animated.ValueXY({x: 10, y: 200});Animated.Value style={{ – transform: /// is short for Animated.View style={{ – transform: [ – {translateX: this.animatedValue.x}, – {translateY: this.animatedValue.y} – ] – }} /stopAnimationStops any running animation.
  • It has a callback with the final value after the animation has = { – console.log(‘finalValue: ‘+ finalValue) – })resetAnimationStops any running animation and sets the value back to its original value.

React Native is great. It’s pretty awesome to be able to build a native app with only JavaScript knowledge. One of the things I like most is making the animations, it can add so much to the…

Give React Native a(nother) try + ReactNative Navigation

  • React Native is no different from other – – tools in this regard, so I want to present a few reasons why you might want to give – – React Native a(nother) try now, just over two and a half years since its initial release.
  • # Native Navigation with React Navigation – – – – You start using React Native.
  • You can either use a library that wraps the native navigation APIs for the platform or a re-implementation of those APIs using the same React Native primitives (View, Text, Animated, etc) that you use throughout your app.
  • React Navigation ( is a “JavaScript-based” navigation solution and React Native Navigation is a “native” navigation library.
  • I lead the React Navigation along with the creator of the project, Eric Vicenti.

Brent Vatne (, ReactNative) and Eric Vicenti (ReactNative @Facebook) are in town delivering training…# Reasons to give React Native a(nother) tryWhen a highly hyped new tool is released, many

How to Animate the Items of a React Native FlatList

  • Animating EntryTo easily demo our animation we’ll animated to insertion of the list item.
  • When a new item is added to the people array we’ll change the opacity of the row and, via transform, the scale and rotation.
  • First we’ll create a new animated value and, when the component mounts, we’ll change that value from 0 to 1 using Animated.timing.
  • Inside the render function we use the animated value to adjust the opacity and scale (directly, because 0 to 1 is what we’re looking for) and the rotation.
  • We’re now left with some subtle, yet slick, animations for each row item for whenever they’re added or removed.

I was recently asked about animating items in a React Native list — specifically animating the item when added and removed. That’s what we’ll cover today! To accomplish this we’ll use the FlatList…

Why’s React Native so promising?

Why is #ReactNative so promising? Read Valentin's blog post to find out!

  • React Native looks a lot like React: roughly the same syntax, classes, JSX, state, props… but React Native is a framework, which means you have more features than just rendering in React Native.
  • To do that, the Facebook team created a bunch of APIs to interact with the camera, the keyboard, the vibrations… – – One of the big advantages of using React Native is that, while the core app runs in a JavaScript Engine, it uses JSX to render native code.
  • You use classes, ES6, states and the like, with a few notable differences: – – Not much to say here except that Redux, the React developers’ favourite state management library, also works with React Native with absolutely no difference in the way you’ll dev.
  • Here’s an example of a small Menu component: – – This article is not about HOCs; just know they allow a greater flexibility around the way you compose your components and you can use them in React Native.
  • With React Native you can compose your styles and properties, combine them and then have them applied onto your component.

Design Spin Builds a React Website with Cosmic JS – Hacker Noon

  • If this was a WordPress website the language we would be using on the server side would be PHP, but we would still be using JavaScript on the client side for any browser trickery such as the image sliders mentioned.
  • When you visit this website, the first page is delivered from the server then further page changes are handled client side.
  • Lighthouse is available within the Google Chrome browsers development tools, allowing you to quickly audit any of your web pages for Progressive Web Apps, Performance, Best Practices and Accessibility.

React Vs React Native. What’s the Difference? [The Best Part of both??]

React Vs React Native. What’s The Difference? #ReactNative #reactjs #React

  • ReactJS or simply reacts a JavaScript library that supports both front end and back end efficacies for developing web applications and user interfaces.
  • So, how does it relate to ReactJS and React-Native – – Well, in ReactJS development services, Virtual DOM is used to refresh parts of a webpage rather than the whole page and thus makes it faster than usual DOM.
  • React-Native equips everything needed for the development of mobile applications, so it is comparatively easier to set up but offers lot less option than ReactJS.
  • ReactJS development services use JSX, a special syntax that allows programmers to blend both JavaScript and HTML.
  • React-Native only caters to mobile app development and has no relation with ReactJS.

Check what’s the difference in react vs react native. And which developer should you hire for your next web or mobile application. We have given detailed comparison between both and what skills react or react native developer should have in order to get hired.

How does CSS fit into Reactjs? – Hacker Noon

How does CSS fit into React? #css #reactjs

  • In React, using JSX, this looks like this: – p style={{color: “red”}}Hello World/p – Inline styles are probably the most limited approach in terms of styling full blown applications since they cannot make use of all of the CSS features such as pseudo selectors, animations and media queries.
  • CSS ModulesWith CSS modules you create a CSS file for every type of component that you want to style the same way that you might do with the “Standard CSS” option, however the difference here is that with CSS modules the styles are scoped locally which means that unlike “Standard…
  • How to use within React: – Use css-loader inside of your webpack.config with modules property set to true, or download a complete library such as css-modules, once setup use as follows: – create a CSS file for whatever components you want to stylewrite your CSSimport this CSS file inside of…
  • Behind the scenes CSS-in-JS is usually implemented in one of the following three ways (or a combination of): – via inline stylesvia a style elementvia a link element at build time by extracting styles into a CSS fileFor the sake of not making the article overly long, we will only…
  • If you like what you see, you might also want to checkout another, very similar, CSS-in-JS library called Emotion, it is very similar to styled-components but gives you the option of extracting all of your styles into a CSS file, at build time, which then get linked into the document…

There are a lot of different ways in which you can style your React applications, and I would even go as far as to say that you actually have more options for styling React applications than…
