Mike Grabowski: Compared to its alternatives, React is what makes React Native shine

.@Grabbou: Compared to its alternatives, #ReactJS is what makes React Native shine

  • We have special weekly meetings of every open source project team which makes it easy to join any time.
  • We plan to make it public at some point, so that it’s not only transparent for folks what we are up to, but also easy to join and help us deliver for better tomorrow.Does the focus on modern technology stack help Callstack acquire more clients?It is just one of the…
  • What they are looking for is to solve specific problems that they have, and right now, the best answer to this problem is: Use React Native.What’s the best use case for choosing React Native over fully native applications?If you have an app that’s already written in React and looking into…
  • There are hundreds of other, perfectly legitimate use cases, to go with React Native.Have you experienced React license issues bothering your clients?No.What do you think is the future web and mobile development?That really depends on vendors.
  • I am paying attention to the way Kotlin evolves on other platforms as well as Flutter, that unlike React Native, uses its own rendering engine and compiles ahead of time.Are you excited about speaking at React Day Berlin?Yeah, totally!

Because Mike is going to speak about animation in React Native at React Day Berlin on December 2, we asked him a couple of questions about his experience with the technology and his current position…

Walmart Labs open sources its tool for bringing React Native to existing mobile apps – TechCrunch

  • With Electrode, the company’s Walmart Labs division open sourced the React-based framework that powers Walmart.com’s frontend and today the same group is also launching Electrode Native, its tool for bringing React Native to existing native apps on iOS and Android.
  • The basics idea here is that Electrode Native allows large companies like Walmart to take their existing apps and slowly migrate parts of their code to React Native, Facebook’s open source framework for building native apps in JavaScript.
  • React Native simply becomes a third-party library that’s used in the native app and the React Native code then lives in what Walmart Labs calls an “Electrode Native MiniApp.”
  • This approach also means developers can write their code for iOS and Android once (Walmart currently develops an iOS and Android app for all of its main brands) and maybe most importantly, that React Native code inside the app can be updated over the air without forcing users to download…
  • Walmart’s developers first used Electrode Native to update the shopping cart section of the Walmart mobile app.

Walmart is placing a big bet on React Native. With Electrode, the company’s Walmart Labs division open sourced the React-based framework that powers Walmart.com’s frontend and today the same group is also launching Electrode Native, its tool for bringing React Native to existing native apps on iOS and Android.

The New Kid on the Block

Meet @mxstrbng - a new member of our #NeosCMS team working on the #reactjs UI:

  • After that I attended the Neos Barcamp, the other two sprints since then and the Neos Conference.
  • All this was much fun especially to see the development of the project not only from a remote point of view but also to contribute to the React UI development.
  • My focus in the Neos project is clearly on the React UI rewrite which we plan to release at the end of the year, but I’m also fixing some little things in Neos or Flow if they catch my eye.
  • I’m not only interested in React, Javascript and PHP but in computer science in general and different kind of programming languages.
  • So, this is me 🙂

    if you are not sure if you want to join the development of Neos and Flow, also as a non programmer, you should join a sprint and see what’s going on there!

Hi I’m Max, 27 and I  became a Neos team member on the 5th July.

React Native Interfaces with Leland Richardson

[podcast] React Native Interfaces with Leland Richardson @intelligibabble @Airbnb…

  • React Native works by presenting a consistent model for the user interface regardless of the underlying platform, and emitting a log of changes to that user interface.
  • In today’s episode, he explains how Airbnb uses React Native, how React Native works, and the future of the platform.
  • Software Engineering Daily listeners can go to weeditpodcasts.com/sed to get 20% off the first two months of audio editing and transcription services.
  • As a special offer to Software Engineering Daily listeners, get $50 toward any mattress purchase by visiting casper.com/sedaily and using codeat checkout.
  • To learn more and find out why companies like Github, DigitalOcean, and Yelp all use VividCortex to see deeper into their database performance.

Airbnb is a company that is driven by design. New user interfaces are dreamed up by designers and implemented for web, iOS, and Android. This implementation process takes a lot of resources, but it used to take even more before the company started using React Native. React Native allows Airbnb to reuse components effectively.
