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.

React Native Monthly #1

  • That’s why we decided to organize a monthly meeting where all major React Native contributors can briefly present what their efforts and plans are.
  • The mission for React Native Monthly is simple and straightforward: improve the React Native community.
  • On the first meeting, we had 8 teams join us:

    We hope to have more core contributors join the upcoming sessions!

  • As teams’ plans might be of interest to a broader audience, we’ll be sharing them here, on the React Native blog.
  • As we just started with this meeting, we’d like to know how do these notes benefit the React Native community.

At Shoutem, we’ve been fortunate enough to work with React Native from its very beginnings. We decided we wanted to be part of the amazing community from day one. Soon enough, we realized it’s almost impossible to keep up with the pace the community was growing and improving. That’s why we decided to organize a monthly meeting where all major React Native contributors can briefly present what their efforts and plans are.

React Native Windows Moving to Microsoft GitHub Organization – Eric Rozell

  • When we officially announced the react-native-windows effort last April, a few other platforms for React Native were in development, including an implementation for Tizen and MacOS.
  • Given the growing interest in bringing new platforms to React Native, we worked together with React Native core contributors to land on a strategy that would scale to many new platforms.
  • Having all new React Native platform efforts land in one repository would have evolved into a maintainability nightmare.
  • This would make adding platforms to existing React Native projects “opt-in”, similar to the way Cordova manages platforms (e.g., ).
  • Implementations of native bridges and any overrides of core JavaScript modules for each platform would exist as separate open source projects and NPM packages.

Microsoft has been contributing to react-native-windows for a little over a year. I’m happy to announce that the project has moved to the Microsoft GitHub organization. This change of ownership on GitHub can only benefit the open source project and its users, bringing more visibility and authority to the effort. All other aspects of the project will be business-as-usual.…

Positive Reactions: Developing With React.js

A short article about development with React Native! #reactnative #AppDev

  • React Native allows you to create React components that directly translate to native components.
  • While development with other non-native frameworks also involve JavaScript, they tend to run in a webview embedded in a native app, further complicating the process.
  • Its sister project, React Native, offers app developers the ability to create native apps using only JavaScript.
  • Too often, existing frameworks talk about making an app seem native to both platforms, only for resulting apps to feel like they belong on neither.
  • With React Native’s view declarations, it becomes much easier to manage any possible contingency when users operate your app.

React Native gives developers a native app development tool that does a great job of bridging the gap between Android and iOS projects.
