Why you can’t ignore React Native in 2017:  #ReactJS #JavaScript

  • Using a native API and wrapping it into React components the framework allows you to develop applications that are barely distinguished from their native counterparts.
  • Essentially, you can take the boilerplate that you would normally use for building web applications with React, replace “React” with “React Native”, change the way application is mounting and swap the routing with React Native navigator.
  • If you need to install a package with a native API under the hood (i.e. the code written in Java or ObjC or even both), you will need to use a special tool called rnpm (it was a separate tool at the time we were using it but was eventually merged into React Native).
  • If you encounter a bug in a React Native package and you don’t have the experience in native development, you are definitely going to need some help from mobile developers who usually don’t know anything about React and React Native as well.
  • React Native is a good choice for your next application, if:

    What is more, React Native can be an ultimate tool for those who:

    If that’s the case, you will be definitely more efficient using React Native than the native platform.

  • Native developers, however, need to rebuild the whole application which is not only a waste of time but also extremely annoying.You can use (almost) the same codebase and tools for building mobile app that you would normally use for building web applicationsEssentially, you can take the boilerplate that you would normally use for building web applications with React, replace “React” with “React Native”, change the way application is mounting and swap the routing with React Native navigator.
  • If you encounter a bug in a React Native package and you don’t have experience in native development, you are definitely going to need some help from mobile developers.
  • Thankfully, we have experienced mobile developers who can always help our team to handle all those certificates, device identifiers, profile provisions, and how to make a build with XCode.Another thing about the building phase is that you can choose from various tools for shipping React Native apps.
  • In case there is no ready-to-use package for some functionality, you will need to implement it on your own by writing a React Native wrapper.What is more, React Native can be an ultimate tool for those who:have mobile native development experience in either of the platforms (both iOS and Android is even better);have experience with modern JS and React.If that’s the case, you will be definitely more efficient using React Native than the native platform.

If you’ve been following web development news, then you probably know how much hype React Native is getting today. As a slight digression, it all started when Facebook released React which…
