React Native

What is React Native used for?

React Native is a framework for building native mobile apps for iOS and Android with JavaScript. It's what you would use if you wanted to build your mobile app with React and didn't want to use platforms like Ionic or Cordova. The framework was first released in 2015, and it has been growing in popularity ever since. It's now used by some of the biggest tech companies in the world, including Facebook, Uber, Instagram, and Skype.

The advantages of using React Native are numerous. One is that you can use most of the code across both Android and iOS platforms, whereas in some other frameworks you have to rewrite the code for each platform (i.e., Swift for iOS and Java for Android). The second advantage is you can use web developers who already know JavaScript, which can be an enormous plus as there are more web developers than mobile developers out there. Third, you can make changes to your app while it's running on a device or simulator, which makes development quicker and easier. What this means is that you don't need to recompile your app each time you make a change—you can just refresh the app in your browser or simulator.


Is React Native frontend or backend?

React Native is a frontend framework that builds on the ReactJS library. It’s not entirely clear-cut whether it’s a frontend or backend framework, but it handles logic and state management in a similar way to what you’d find in a backend language like JavaScript. This means that React Native app development can be a bit different than what you might find with other frontend frameworks like AngularJS. While React Native has a lot of great features, there are some drawbacks to using it for your next project. Here are some pros and cons of choosing React Native for the frontend of your application.


Is React better or angular?
No one is better, they are both different, and has their own pros and cons. it's like asking if it's better to drive a car or fly a plane. If you want to go long distances, flying is the logical choice. But if you're going to a nearby place, driving makes more sense.AngularJS:* Angular is fully-featured framework with all the necessary ingredients - data binding, routing, form validation etc;* AngularJS has some concepts that can be hard to grasp for beginners - directives for example;* You may need to spend some time on learning Angular;* Since it's a framework, your app may suffer from performance issues.React:* React is just a library for rendering views;* React has a steep learning curve, but you can start developing with it in about 20 minutes;* React is not opinionated about how your app should look like;* It only concerns itself with the view layer of your application;* Since React is just a library, there's no performance penalty associated with using it. So my advice would be this: If you have time to invest into learning AngularJS, go with it. If you need something faster and easier to learn - use React.


Who Use React Native?

You may have heard the term React Native when researching different mobile app development options for your project. But what exactly is it?

React Native is a framework that allows developers to build native mobile apps using JavaScript. The framework creates a bridge between your JavaScript code and the native APIs, allowing you to write real, natively-rendering mobile applications in JavaScript.

It's worth mentioning that React Native isn't just some pre-compiler that translates your code into something the native device can use; instead, it uses a JavaScript runtime environment (which is similar to Node.js) to render the components of your app directly on the device, meaning they look and feel like they're actually native apps. This also means that you won't need any third-party libraries to access APIs or plug in hardware-specific components, either—the framework integrates directly with native modules so you can write custom functionality with ease.

In this post, we'll be taking a closer look at what sets React Native apart from other frameworks and how it works for each platform. We'll also talk about who uses React Native and how it compares with other popular mobile development tools out there today!
