How To Open Source Parts Of Your Private Project With Bit

  • Using Bit, you can isolate these sets of files (we call code components) from your project and share them with the open source community, while keeping their source project private and intact.
  • js – │ └── index.js – └── utils – └── noop.jsBefore Bit, we would have to create a new GitHub project for this component, remove hello-world from your private project and make all its dependancies (packages as well as other files from the project) available for the new project.
  • With Bit, you can keep this component as part of your private project and still make it available to the community to discover, use and collaborate on.
  • Open source parts of your project to the communityTo make sure your components are truly executable outside of the project’s context, Bit will build an isolated component environment and apply all configured extensions to test, compile or perform any other defined task.
  • You can also use bit import to bring the component’s source code into other projects, develop them and merge changes between different projects.

How to make parts of your private projects open source and make their components available to the community without having to split your repositories or create new projects on GitHub. Learn more.

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.
