Why React Native?

React Native
by

React Native is a JavaScript framework for writing real, natively rendering mobile applications for iOS and Android. It’s based on React, Facebook’s JavaScript library for building user interfaces, but instead of targeting the browser, it targets mobile platforms. In other words: web developers can now write mobile applications that look and feel truly “native,” all from the comfort of a JavaScript library that we already know and prefer. Plus, because most of the code you write can be shared between platforms, React Native makes it easy to simultaneously develop for both Android and iOS.

What Is the difference between React Js and React Native?

The main difference is that ReactJs is used to make websites, whereas React Native is used to making mobile applications. ReactJS is a tool you add to your website, whereas React Native is used to building your mobile apps from the ground up.

Usually, ReactJS is a tool that you can add to your website, to write code in the form of reusable components. This component can be integrated with other technologies, or used with other React components to make your whole page. Usually, you don’t use just react to make a website, as a hierarchy of components passing down information to other components can soon become an entangled mess. You pair it with redux, mobX or whatever other technology you might like to structure your site.

React Native is not a tool that you add to an existing project. React Native is the tool you use to build your mobile phone from the ground up. What React Native does is that it allows you to write javascript that calls native code. This allows you to write most of your app in javascript, using components written in javascript (that you can eventually reuse even in your website with minor changes), and components that use native code. React Native also provides you with a lot of components that you can use right away to make your app.

Why React Native is the future?

  • Cross-Platform Compatibility
