The increase in the popularity of IOs and Android apps nowadays there are lots of companies building apps and want them to develop in a faster way. A fully native app is getting very expensive as it requires separate teams to work on iOS and Android. ReactNative is a good solution to this as the app developed in react native can be run on ios and android.
Let us see some of the important benefits of using React Native to build apps −
React Native offers a huge list of components that makes UI building very easy.Some of the useful components are ScrollView, Buttons, Images, Text,TextInput, FlatList, Modal Window, Managing with touches, etc.React Native Animations, Screen Navigation helps to add interactivity to the UI .
As react native and reactjs are one of the popular frameworks in today’s time there is a lot of help available on the internet. In case the developer gets a show stopper while building the app, it can be easily discussed with the vast community that react native comes with. The ideas as well code can be discussed with the other developers and the experiences can be shared.
Live Reloading builds and compiles your files and considers the changes done by the coder. The change done is made automatically available to the simulator that reads the app from the start.
Hot Reloading basically relates to the changes available on your app when the code is changed. The goal is to get this feedback loop to be under 1 second, even as your app grows.So with hot reloading the is to keep the app running and to add new changes to the files that you edited at runtime. Hot Reloading makes use of the feature Hot module Replacement or HMR. It was first implemented by Webpack and the same concept is used with React Native. The HMR keeps watch on the files changed and the update is end to the thin HMR runtime included as a wrapper on the app.
The missing components that are still required for your app development can be made available by using the third party plugins. For example, google authentication, google maps etc.
