React Native – JavaScript framework for mobile apps


ReactNative is a JavaScript framework created by Facebook and used for writing real, natively rendering mobile applications for iOS and Android. It’s based on React, JavaScript library for building user interfaces, but instead of targeting the browser, it targets mobile platforms. Now web developers can write mobile applications that look and feel truly native. React Native invokes the native rendering APIs in Objective-C (iOS) or Java (Android). Your application will render using real mobile UI components and will look and feel like any other mobile application. Facebook Ads Manager, Instagram, UberEats, Myntra, Walmart etc are some of the famous apps built with React Native.

Like Cordova or Ionic, React Native actually renders using its host platform’s standard rendering APIs enables it to stand out from most existing methods of cross-platform application development. Existing methods of writing mobile applications using combinations of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS typically render using web views. While React Native translates your markup to real, native UI elements, leveraging existing means of rendering views on whatever platform you are working with. Your application can maintain high performance without sacrificing capability because React works separately from the main UI thread.

A react native developer, who can write mobile apps with the performance and look and feel of a native application while using familiar tools. React Native represents an improvement over normal mobile development in two other areas: the developer experience and cross-platform development potential. Since React Native is “just” JavaScript, you don’t need to rebuild your application in order to see your changes reflected; instead, you can hit Command+R to refresh your application just as you would any other web page. Additionally, React Native lets you take advantage of intelligent debugging tools and error reporting.

React Native has been well built and has achieved the goal of build a mobile app with excellent quality and performance. Though this framework is 2 years old. It allows you to build a serious application. Nowadays, you can see big companies have shown their interest in implement it on their production projects.
