Hugo Di Francesco - Going Cross-Platform With React

Wednesday, 27 January 2016

What's the fastest way to ship a Web, iOS and Android app?

React Native goes beyond making native apps with web technology. You use javascript, granted that's a web technology, to make a fully fledged React app, using native components.

It's more than leveraging the power of the state -- UI mapping of React. It's about code reuse. Being this DRY hurts. All the high-level logic is portable and you have one single codebase for all three target platforms.

All of this is free, as long as you embrace React.
