Experimenting with React Native & Expo’s Audio API

  • This year, we’re working on a complete refresh (Winds 2.0) that will introduce podcast support, enhanced social functionality, native iOS and Android applications, and much more.
  • With that, we have decided to use React Native to support our iOS and Android builds – a framework that will allow our development team to write applications that target multiple operating systems, with pure JavaScript.
  • We decided to build an audio player for iOS and Android with Expo’s powerful audio API and, of course, React Native.
  • Without React Native and the help of Expo, we would not have been able to target multiple operating systems in the timeframe that we have allotted and we would have to work with two separate codebases.
  • By experimenting and building a fully functional proof of concept, we’re now one step closer to Winds 2.0, and couldn’t be happier to announce that the code is 100% open-source on GitHub.

Stream is hiring Go, Python, and Machine Learning Engineers. Join our team and help powers the feeds for more than 200 million end users!

Guest Post: Automatically Deploy Pull Requests for Create React Native App and Expo Projects

  • TL;DR;appr builds and deploys pull requests in your create-react-native-app and Expo-based projects, and posts a link and a QR code to your PR, so you can run the app on your device or emulator in seconds!Great teams review their codeI’m sure you’ll agree: Code reviews are a useful tool in a development team’s workflow.
  • You wouldn’t release code to production without having another pair of eyes on it first, would you?Thankfully, GitHub makes code reviews simple.
  • Netlify offers the same functionality for deploying static front end sites.Sadly, this one-click workflow hasn’t been available to mobile developers without setting up complex build and deployment pipelines, and even then, installing an app to be able to test a simple change still takes way too long.Inspired by Expo Sketch, I wanted to see if it would be possible to set up review apps for React Native.Introducing apprAppr is a script that deploys pull requests in your project to Expo, and posts a link and a QR code to your PR.
  • Point your Expo app camera to the QR code and the review app will launch on your device.
  • Switching to your preferred CI should be easy, and PRs to add support are welcome!To make testing your pull requests easy, head to FormidableLabs/appr on GitHub and follow the simple Getting started guide to add appr to your project!

I’m Sticking With React (For Now) – Hacker Noon

I’m Sticking With React (For Now) @SeanKilgarriff  #Reactjs #JavaScript #WebDev

  • I used a package for React to handle my CSS transitions because they are difficult to implement when working with a virtual dom.
  • In one quick google you can find any package for React written as a component.
  • Inferno had no solution for CSS transitions.
  • While I understand that both of these frameworks are still very much under construction, the stability that React provides my applications is too good to give up.
  • With both Inferno and Preact, there was no solution for my custom CSS transitions – the infrastructure just wasn’t there .

Last month, I converted my personal website to React after gaining a lot of experience with it in the workplace. I used my website as a guinea pig to stretch React to the limits and see what I could…

Victory – Modular data visualisation components using #ReactJS:

  • Victory is an ecosystem of composable, modular React components for building interactive data visualisations.
  • data.x}/>
  • Victory – Modular data visualisation components using React
  • Having such a simple API makes it easy for teams to collaborate, designers when prototyping, can manipulate the props of data visualisations at the top level and then share these components with the development team, who can then work on the integration.
  • So let’s override some of these by adding some custom data and some styles.
