now it’s easier than ever to contribute to react-native docs!

  • As mentioned above, the ‘docs/’ folder contains the source files for all of the docs in the React Native website.
  • If you’re adding a new doc or you need to alter the order the docs appear in the sidebar, take a look at the ‘sidebars.json’ file in the ‘website/’ directory.
  • The React Native website is versioned as to allow users to go back and see the API reference docs for any given release.
  • json’ files will be copied over to the corresponding location within ‘website/versioned_docs/’ and keeps track of the list of versions for the site in the ‘website/versions.

We are excited that our investment in Jest is now paying off: we can move fast and improve the framework for Facebook and the open source community at light-speed. Jest’s goal is to come with batteries included and to require as little configuration as necessary. We recently got a chance to explain our philosophy on a create-react-app issue.
