From a technological standpoint, I started my React Native journey at Prilient Technologies, where I got to know about it. React Native is made up of unique native components like Text, Input, Modal, and Buttons that translate into variations of native components that are particular to different platforms by sharing an integrated codebase. React Native can now support a wide variety of different platforms, namely Windows, the Web, and macOS.
The ability to reuse Code: The main benefit of React Native is that it eliminates the need for platform developers to write separate programs for Android and iOS. In reality, 90% or more of the code may be used multiple times on the two platforms, substantially improving both the effectiveness and the speed of development. You benefit from a quicker time-to-market and have less maintenance work as a bonus.
Huge Community Support: React Native initially appeared in response to a need among the developer community. It has a community-driven technique as a side effect, and there are over 50,000 active contributors. The platform keeps being developed and updated by Facebook's creators, and having a group of such experts makes it simple to ask for expert guidance.
Running one line of code in the terminal or command prompt is required to install React Native. React Native installation procedures, however, may differ depending on your project. Additionally, several dependents need to be loaded before you can start applying React Native.
Install JDK 7 or a newer version.
Set up a node.
Get Android Studio installed.
Professionals that design software programs for several platforms, including tablets, smartphones, desktops, and other devices, are known as app developers. Designing, creating, and maintaining mobile apps to satisfy the demands and specifications of their consumer base or companies is their most important duty.
Planning and Analysis
App developers work closely with clients or other stakeholders to comprehend what they want and require. They help define the application's scope, features, and functions throughout the planning and evaluation processes.
The aesthetic aspects and layout of the program, such as screen designs, icons, buttons, and other graphic elements, are created by programmers as part of their task of designing the user interface (UI) and user experience (UX). By focusing on guaranteeing simple navigation, fluid interactions, and appealing aesthetics, they aim to deliver an excellent user experience.
Testing and Debugging
To find and address any flaws, errors, or usability challenges, developers do thorough testing. To make sure that the software operates properly and satisfies the requirements, they carry out unit testing, integration tests, and acceptability testing among users.
Programming and development
Distribution and Deployment
After the program has been created and extensively tested, developers prepare it for distribution. They prepare the application for distribution by packaging it in the proper format, then upload it to the relevant app stores (like the Google Play Store, and Apple App Store).
After the app's original release, developers frequently offer continuous support and maintenance. To improve the application's functionality, security, and features, they respond to user comments, correct issues, and provide updates. This entails keeping an eye on the app's functionality, examining accident reports, and making the required adjustments.
Like everything else, employing React Native has its drawbacks, and how well it is a suitable fit for your team will truly depend on your particular circumstances.
Given that React Native is still a relatively young project, its maturity represents the highest risk. Support for iOS was made available in March 2015, while availability for Android was made available in September 2015.
There is undoubtedly space for improvement in the documentation, which is always changing. The community is currently learning best practices, and several functionalities on both IOS are still deprecated.
React Native adds a layer to your code, which can complicate debugging, especially as React and the host platform converge. Due to React Native's youth, the customary limitations apply.
React Native abstracts away some platform-specific aspects to allow for code sharing, but this may limit your ability to modify improvements to performance or low-level device capabilities.
Like any software framework, React Native changes over time, and fresh updates are frequently issued. Updates might contain breaking changes or compatibility problems with current code and third-party libraries, in addition to modifications and bug fixes.
