5 Reasons Web Developers Love React Native

5 Reasons Web Developers Love #ReactNative @shoutem #webdev

  • As you probably know, there are a few other multi-platform solutions, like Cordova and PhoneGap, but they come with a price: the price of relying only on the phone browser and its built-in JavaScript engine, which is often way slower than running native code, like React Native does.
  • Another thing that will make things, if not familiar, then definitely easier to work with is Nuclide, an integrated development environment (IDE) that Facebook is building to give developers a first-class developing environment for React Native.
  • Since this is all pretty new, uncharted territory, a lot of developers are doing their best to build something useful to others and unveil the true potential of React Native.
  • The biggest, most active groups is React Native Community, which offers daily posts about tool kits, components, new apps, and answers to questions about React Native, from basic questions to serious developer problems.
  • That’s where you come in: a new React Native developer, resolving problems and bringing new ideas to this fast-rising framework of the future.

React Native is the future of modern app development. The framework is not just for web developers, the entire development logic uses modern principles. React Native workflow is efficient, easy, and quick to learn and more platforms are using it.

Introducing Explore GraphQL – Apollo GraphQL

Introducing Explore GraphQL  #api #webdevelopment #angularjs #graphql #react #reactjs

  • So we wanted to create a new resource that can help communicate that excitement and give people the tools to get GraphQL running in production at their organization.That’s where Explore GraphQL comes in.What’s this new site for, and how can you get involved?
  • That’s why you’ll see slides at the end of every GraphQL talk with 5–7 links pointing to a variety of resources.Here are two types of resources people often link to:GraphQL.org: This is the home of the specification and technical documentation about GraphQL as a technology.
  • It’s a critical resource for the community, but it’s focused on presenting the facts and less about presenting the reasons why to start using GraphQL.Tutorials and other learning resources for GraphQL: These do a great job of introducing people to GraphQL and giving a hands-on experience, but they only work if the reader is already interested in adopting the technology.
  • People who move some or all of their data into a GraphQL API tell us it’s much easier to build new apps and prototype experiences than ever before, and we want to make that super clear to people considering the technology.We’re excited to hear any ideas you might have about how to make that pitch stronger so newcomers have all the tools they need for a great experience with GraphQL!Guides and best practices 📚One thing we’ve heard over and over again is that there isn’t enough information about how to go from zero to production with GraphQL.
  • We hope to rapidly improve this part of the site most with community input and brand new content.If you have an idea for content that is needed in the community, or are interested in writing content (and get prominent credit as an author), please let us know!I already think this page is off to a good start, with a list of difficult-to-find articles in one curated place, but it has limitless potential.Company success stories 🙌The last major part of the site is a list of articles written by companies who have adopted GraphQL in production and gotten great results.It’s inspiring to see how many people have already gotten value out of GraphQL on an organizational level, and it’s one of the main things that gives developers the confidence to push for it at their company.

It’s no secret that the Apollo community thinks GraphQL is the best thing to happen to development since sliced bread. We talk to new teams every week who have gotten huge improvements in their…

Deploying React with Zero Configuration

  • We’ll be tracking progress on create-react-app and adapting the buildpack to support more advanced use cases as they become available.
  • create-react-app is very new (currently version 0.2) and since its target is a crystal-clear developer experience, more advanced use cases are not supported (or may never be supported).
  • To support greater control, create-react-app includes the command npm run eject .
  • Thanks to the zero-config foundation of create-react-app , the idea of zero-config deployment seemed within reach.
  • git commit -m “react-create-app on Heroku” git push heroku master heroku open
