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.

Yarn: A new package manager for JavaScript

  • Updating a single dependency with npm also updates many unrelated ones based on semantic versioning rules.
  • Yarn is a new package manager that replaces the existing workflow for the npm client or other package managers while remaining compatible with the npm registry.
  • Many of our projects at Facebook, like React, depend on code in the npm registry.
  • Throughout the entire process, Yarn imposes strict guarantees around package installation.
  • The most popular JavaScript package manager is the npm client, which provides access to more than 300,000 packages in the npm registry.

In the JavaScript community, engineers share hundreds of thousands of pieces of code so we can avoid rewriting basic components, libraries, or frameworks of our own. Each piece of code may in turn depend on other pieces of code, and these dependencies are managed by package managers. The most popular JavaScript package manager is the npm client, which provides access to more than 300,000 packages in the npm registry. More than 5 million engineers use the npm registry, which sees up to 5 billion downloads every month.

Announcing Reactive Trader Cloud

  • Announcing Reactive Trader Cloud
  • Reactive Trader Cloud is a demo client-server FX trading application.
  • To launch Reactive Trader in our demo environment, click .
  • The backend is composed of a set of services which can be scaled, deployed and upgraded independently.
  • Instead of using HTTP, the client connects to the backend using Websockets and since we have a number of services, we decided to use a messaging gateway to act as a broker: this allows the client to establish a single connection to the backend and the broker is used to route messages to the correct service instance or to the correct client.

@AdaptiveLimited: “Reactive Trader Cloud released, #reactjs front-end, backend on #Kubernetes, all open source!”


In April 2014 we gave a talk at React Conf London on Reactive user interfaces and open-sourced Reactive Trader, a demo app we used to demonstrate the different concepts we highlighted in the talk. The talk was focused on UIs so we put most of our effort into the front-end and built a very simple monolithic backend to simulate the different flows and failure scenarios.
