Ad­van­tages of us­ing Re­act Na tive

net magazine - - PROJECTS -

When it comes to build­ing apps for mo­bile, a lot of peo­ple are very wor­ried about de­vel­op­ing apps out­side of their na­tive lan­guages. Here are some of the rea­sons why Re­act Na­tive is per­fect for your next mo­bile project.

Pop­u­lar­ity Re­act Na­tive is the most pop­u­lar cross-plat­form frame­work avail­able. It has a big com­mu­nity and there is al­ways some­one out there who can help when you hit a prob­lem.

Code shar­ing 95 per­cent of the code­base is shared be­tween iOS and An­droid, mean­ing you can use the same code for both plat­forms.

In­stant up­dat­ing Dur­ing devel­op­ment, you can see the re­sults of your code up­dates in­stan­ta­neously with­out hav­ing to con­stantly build and run the project.

Per­for­mance You will find that the per­for­mance of a Re­act Na­tive app is very sim­i­lar to that of a na­tive app. You will find that hy­brid so­lu­tions can af­fect per­for­mance and you don’t al­ways get the feel of a na­tive app.

Re­lease Be­cause you are build­ing for both plat­forms us­ing the same code­base, you will be able to re­lease for both iOS and An­droid at the same time.

Up­date ap­proval If you are host­ing your own bun­dle, then there is no rea­son why you can’t use over-the-air up­dates. This cuts out hav­ing to go back through the app store ap­proval process for up­dates.

Out­sourc­ing If you head up a devel­op­ment team, then you will only need to find one de­vel­oper for both plat­forms rather than hav­ing to hire one for iOS and an­other for An­droid.

Learn­ing If you are com­ing from a JavaScript back­ground, then Re­act Na­tive is in­cred­i­bly easy to learn.
