Part 1: Getting Started With React Native

Ch 11

  • React Native just may be the holy grail of cross-platform app development that many developers and companies have been hoping for.
  • Using React Native, developers can build performant cross-platform native apps much easier than ever before, all with a single programming language: JavaScript.
  • With the growing demand for apps and the increasing complexity that app development entails, React Native comes along at a perfect time.
  • If you’re serious about app development or want to stay ahead of the curve on emerging and disruptive technologies, take a look at React Native.
  • “Great introduction to the rapidly changing world of React and React Native!”

Introduction to React Native Course

  • Brandy is a developer, designer, and doer, that could out hustle Jay-Z.
  • She is a full stack developer, with an enthusiasm for application development and learning the latest technologies.

React Native is a great option for creating performant iOS and Android applications that feel at home on their respective platforms, all while building on any previous web development experience. One of its greatest advantages is that it is written in JavaScript and with that you can maximize code reuse between platforms. This course is going to go through the basics of React Native, Redux, third party API integration and the best ways to structure your React Native projects for success. In this course we will be building the ultimate superhero app. This app will let you build the superhero team of your dreams, well if you dream in Marvel that is. By the end of this course you should have the confidence to build upon the app that we started and take it to the next level.

Native Script and React Native Comparison – Viraj C – Medium

Native Script and React Native Comparison  #reactnative #react #nativescript #reactjs

  • Native Script and React Native ComparisonReact NativeWhether to develop a cross platform application as a native app or as a hybrid app is a crucial dilemma faced by application developers.
  • However, some still like to build applications using Native Script and couple it with Angular to enable cross platform experience.This article compares both the approaches for building cross platform applications and help derive a conclusion, as to which is a superior way of building more native application experience.Application development with React NativeReact Native is an application development tool launched by Facebook in March 2015.
  • React Native focuses on dirty rendering and speed of development to expedite cross platform application development.Angular JS 2 and Native Script App developmentNative Script is the basic tool used by developers for developing the code for an application.
  • Native Script app development essentially follows a more holistic approach, with lower level UI elements to make it transparent and repeatable between multiple mobile platforms.
  • Therefore, this approach is clearly not focused on speed and performance like React Native.Key DifferencesReact Native:Same base code is used to build apps for multiple platforms.Abstracts the business logic in order to support the different UI rendering on each platform.Applications have to interpret between multiple UI paradigms as they use the same code on different platformsEven though the application can be written in a platform-agnostic manner, React Native allows access to platform specific UI layer as well.Speed and Performance focus of React Native allows for hybrid applications to be ready and rendered very fast.Better suited for apps where the UI is complex, needs to be resource intensive, required lots of rendering and involves various custom elements.Native Script:Fundamentally follows the ‘write once, run anywhere’ approach.Focuses on creating a singular development experience, irrespective of the platform.Applications turn out to be more conceptually consistent due to the coupling with Angular JS 2, which has a declarative UI focus.Several UI elements are kept at a lower level in order to manage the UI transparently on multiple platforms.Dependence on Angular for driving the application’s architecture makes the app development slower than React Native.Ideal for generic, database powered apps that don’t require complex UI elements on multiple platforms.In conclusion, deciding which approach is better for developing a cross platform application can depend on the need and purpose of the application.

Whether to develop a cross platform application as a native app or as a hybrid app is a crucial dilemma faced by application developers. Ever since the launch of React Native, developers have…

Which is More Popular: AngularJS or ReactJS

Which is More Popular: #angularjs or #reactjs ?:  - by @AliyahChoudhry via:@allaboutwebbiz

  • AngularJS tracks and delivers updated relational content to users, without requiring developers to write additional code.
  • The two frameworks differ from each other in the categories of feature, functionality, usage and performance.
  • The developers must avoid using the two frameworks together to prevent the web application from becoming complex.
  • Bidirectional Data Binding: AngularJS further beats React in the category of data binding.
  • It becomes easier for web developers to boost the website’s user experience by allowing visitors to access new and dynamic content without leaving the web page.

Both AngularJS and ReactJS are widely used front-end frameworks. AngularJS is a JavaScript based structural framework, whereas React is a JavaScript library for developing web user interfaces. According to the usage statistics posted on various websites, AngularJS is currently more popular than React. But a number of reports recently highlighted the growing popularity of React.

Introducing React Native on Ubuntu

Introducing React Native on Ubuntu

  • The development tools are fully supportive of snaps and incorporate an easy basis to create a snap and publish it to any Snappy Store giving the app much greater relevance across devices built for mobile, desktop, IoT etc.
  • The Cordova framework is one such framework that is very well supported with set of Ubuntu specific APIs and has gained a lot attention and traction with developers.
  • If you are one of these developers then Ubuntu has a great choice of frameworks you can use to create new apps.
  • Ubuntu works with React Native so the application easily “reacts” to converged environments.
  • You can start leveraging your web-dev skills using the source code for React Native Ubuntu .

Using Auth0 with Reindex

  • I will cover common patterns for using Auth0 in Reindex-copying the profile info and using the Auth0 API.
  • You can call the mutation manually in your login function or use a Relay Mutation.
  • To maintain privacy, only the user can read this field, so, if you want to reveal some of the profile info to other users, you need to copy it.
  • export default function login ( auth0Options, reindex ) { const lock = new Auth0Lock( ‘YOUR-AUTH0-CLIENT-ID’ , ‘YOUR-AUTH0-SECRET’ ); lock.show(auth0Options, async (err, profile, idToken) => { if (err) { console .log(err); return ; } await reindex.loginWithToken( ‘auth0’ , idToken) .catch((err) => { console .log(err) }); await reindex.query( ` mutation($input: _UpdateUserInput!
  • Let’s write a function that opens the Auth0 lock and logs the user into Reindex.

@freiksenet: “I’ve written a guide about using @reindexio and @auth0 together in #reactjs and #reactnative.”


Auth0 is an amazing service for handling authentication
in your apps. It not only supports many popular social login APIs, but
also has ready-made libraries and UI components to really speed up your
application development. Reindex supports Auth0 as an authentication
provider,
and we actually use it for our own dashboard app. In this blog post, I’ll describe
various ways to use Auth0 with Reindex.
