React Native Development
This article will help you get a grip on the basic concepts of React Native. First, we’ll go through the framework’s fundamental aspects. After the basics have been covered, we are going to make our mobile application, a “To-do” app. This application is all about improving productivity as it will allow us to add, manage, and remove tasks. Let’s get started.
What is React Native?
React Native applications are real mobile applications and not just web applets. Facebook released the first version of React Native in March 2015.
Why Use React Native?
One of the most significant advantages of React Native is that you can develop an application for both Android and iOS ecosystems simultaneously by writing the same code with just a few modifications for each platform.
React Native enables speedy development of mobile applications since a similar code is used for applications for both platforms. It also facilitates a hot reloading feature that makes sure that small changes done to the application are immediately visible to the developer.
Large Developers’ Community
A huge developers’ community ensures that all the queries are resolved in time, and therefore, adequate support is available for the React Native framework.
It Keeps Getting Better
The community, as mentioned above, also keeps updating React Native with new functionalities and making sure that bugs do not occur.
Used by Many Companies
Though the framework is relatively new, many companies have already migrated the applications to this framework. Additional companies are looking to use the framework to speed up the process of development and maintenance
Excellent Career Opportunities
React Native has become very popular lately due to advantages like cross-compatibility. Consequently, this popularity has led to high demand for React Native developers.
View, State, Props, and Style
The View is an elemental component of React Native for building a user interface. It is a container that supports layout with flexbox, style, touch handling, and accessibility controls. It maps directly to the native view similar to whatever platform on React Native app is running on.
There are two types of data that control a component in React Native: props and state. For data that is going to change in the future, we use state. The state contains the data or information about the component. It determines the behavior of the component and how it will render.
Props is short for Properties. The components can be customized at the time of creation using different parameters, and those parameters are known as props. Props are passed from one container to another as a means of passing data between them.
React Native Prerequisites
Here are some ideas and concepts that you should be familiar with before starting to work on React Native:
- You should be familiar with programming concepts like functions, objects, arrays, and to a lesser extent, classes
- You should have some familiarity with HTML and CSS
- Finally, if you have worked with React before, you already know a lot about React Native, and there should be absolutely no problem in working with it
React Native Apps VS Platform-Specific Apps
These are the most critical differences between React Native and platform-specific mobile applications:
Apps work in both iOS and Android
The app is made for a specific platform
Developers having a strong web development background
Developers having a strong platform knowledge
Not recommended as the framework can get shut down
Recommended for long-term investment
Best for small development teams with limited resources
Best for experienced development reams with adequate resources
“ Sir webinar was very good. Thank you very much. ”
“ Overall experience is good. ”
“ The webinar was good but the time was limited, let's hope you and your team will keep organising more such webinar in future. ”
“ In only two days of training, I learned alot.. This was a very immersive and interesting course -- a lot of self-learning to be done on your own to really understand and put together into practice the technology into your own course and workflow. Thankyou ”
