When we say mobile application development, there are two major ecosystems. To develop iOS and Android apps, we need experts in Swift or Objective C, Java, Android SDK, and Cocoa Touch. The list keeps growing with other testing tools and libraries of both these ecosystems.
Developers managing two codebases and delivering world-class application experiences in both these platforms are adding new features to the product effectively in a defined timeline and optimizing the product in line with the latest SDK releases of both the ecosystems. It simply takes time.
Let’s look at the promising features of React Native and how it can reduce our complexity in the two types of codebase, and the React Native ways to build mobile applications in a quick and effective way.
1) Learn Once, Write Anywhere
2) Exact Native Look, Feel, and Performance
3) Faster Development
4) Faster Updates
5) Native Module
React Native enables us to share application logic across the two platforms, which means we can reuse nearly 70% of code between iOS and Android. It’s worth mentioning that Facebook stated that their Ad Manager application has 87% code reuse across the two platforms.
It’s really very simple and easy to get started with React Native. Here is a list of some of the best available resources:
: The official React Native website, where you can find all materials to get started.
: The GitHub page contains the complete list of articles, tutorials, code samples, and resources for React Native.
: Here you can find available React Native IDEs, tools, and the latest news on React Native.
: Here is a list of React Native’s latest Components.
