Introduction to React Native
React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use
this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps.
You can use it to develop web apps too.
Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first
release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest
stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.
Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The
“Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved
framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that
use React Native.

Advantages of React Native
The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are
as follows:
● Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
● Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it.
The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
● UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your
mobile app.
● 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
● Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid
frameworks?
Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to
native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native
platform APIs as native apps would do.
Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and
these are platform agnostic. <View>, <Text>, and <Image> are a few examples. These
components map to the UI building blocks of the native platforms.
The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This
enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native
wraps existing native code.

The advantages of using React Native over Ionic are as follows:
User experience (UX): While React Native is built using JavaScript, its underlying
widgets are native Android and iOS. On the other hand, Ionic uses HTML, CSS, and
JavaScript so that you can build apps for mobile, web, and desktop.
Performance: When you build a React Native app, you are developing a near-native app
using JavaScript. With Ionic, you are building a hybrid app. React Native apps deliver
much better performance than Ionic.
Community support: React Native is far more popular than Ionic. If you use React
Native, then you can get much better support from a bigger developer community
than Ionic.

The advantages of using React Native over Apache Cordova are as follows:
Performance: If you code an app using Cordova, then you are using web standard
technologies. On the other hand, the UI components of React Native are linked to
native UI views. React Native delivers much better performance than Cordova.
Look and feel: When you code an app using Cordova, you are essentially coding a web
application that can also be used on the mobile. It doesn’t deliver the native look and
feel, e.g., your app might not provide visual feedback on tap areas. On the other hand,
React Native has access to the native controls of Android and iOS. As a result, you offer
a far better user experience if you code a mobile app using React Native.

https://devathon.com/blog/how-native-is-react-native-vs-native-app-development/
Building blocks: Several building blocks for native Android development are present in
React Native too. Since React Native is a mobile development framework, it compiles
the app components for native Android development into JavaScript. This brings React
Native quite close to native Android development.
UI: Some of the components used in React Natives map to the native Android
components. A few examples of such components are <image>, <view>, <ScrollView>,
<TextInput>, and <FlatList>. This makes the UI of a React Native app quite similar to a
native Android app.
User experience: React Native apps deliver nearly the same speed and responsiveness
that a native Android app delivers.
Similarities between React Native development vs Native Android development
https://devathon.com/blog/how-native-is-react-native-vs-native-app-development/
Interacting with other native apps: Native apps seamlessly interact with other native
apps, which makes the sharing of data from other native apps easy. Developing with
React Native can’t bring that level of seamless interaction.
How app stores accept your app: Google Play prefers native apps developed using
Java/Kotlin for Android than React Native apps. It’s the same with the Apple App Store,
which prefers apps developed using Swift for iOS than React Native apps.
Tooling support: Both Google and Apple regularly upgrade their respective IDEs and
maintain excellent documentation. If you need to frequently update your mobile app,
then you will find the native development environment tools easier to use than React
Native.
Differences between React Native development vs Native Android development
https://devathon.com/blog/how-native-is-react-native-vs-native-app-development/
React Native represents a significant improvement over earlier hybrid frameworks like
Ionic and Cordova. Subsequently, we analyzed the similarities and differences between
React Native development and native development. We provided a few guidelines for
choosing one or the other. Finally, we explained how you can bridge the gap between
React Native development and native development and what kind of complexities you
can expect. Analyze your project requirements carefully so that you can make an
informed decision.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020. Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native. https://devathon.com/blog/how-native-is-react-native-vs-native-app-development/
  • 3. Advantages of React Native The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows: ● Performance: It delivers optimal performance. ● Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs. ● UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app. ● 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins. ● Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native. https://devathon.com/blog/how-native-is-react-native-vs-native-app-development/
  • 4. Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks? Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do. Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic. <View>, <Text>, and <Image> are a few examples. These components map to the UI building blocks of the native platforms. The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code. https://devathon.com/blog/how-native-is-react-native-vs-native-app-development/
  • 5. The advantages of using React Native over Ionic are as follows: User experience (UX): While React Native is built using JavaScript, its underlying widgets are native Android and iOS. On the other hand, Ionic uses HTML, CSS, and JavaScript so that you can build apps for mobile, web, and desktop. Performance: When you build a React Native app, you are developing a near-native app using JavaScript. With Ionic, you are building a hybrid app. React Native apps deliver much better performance than Ionic. Community support: React Native is far more popular than Ionic. If you use React Native, then you can get much better support from a bigger developer community than Ionic.

  • 6. The advantages of using React Native over Apache Cordova are as follows: Performance: If you code an app using Cordova, then you are using web standard technologies. On the other hand, the UI components of React Native are linked to native UI views. React Native delivers much better performance than Cordova. Look and feel: When you code an app using Cordova, you are essentially coding a web application that can also be used on the mobile. It doesn’t deliver the native look and feel, e.g., your app might not provide visual feedback on tap areas. On the other hand, React Native has access to the native controls of Android and iOS. As a result, you offer a far better user experience if you code a mobile app using React Native.

  • 7. Building blocks: Several building blocks for native Android development are present in React Native too. Since React Native is a mobile development framework, it compiles the app components for native Android development into JavaScript. This brings React Native quite close to native Android development. UI: Some of the components used in React Natives map to the native Android components. A few examples of such components are <image>, <view>, <ScrollView>, <TextInput>, and <FlatList>. This makes the UI of a React Native app quite similar to a native Android app. User experience: React Native apps deliver nearly the same speed and responsiveness that a native Android app delivers.

  • 8. Interacting with other native apps: Native apps seamlessly interact with other native apps, which makes the sharing of data from other native apps easy. Developing with React Native can’t bring that level of seamless interaction. How app stores accept your app: Google Play prefers native apps developed using Java/Kotlin for Android than React Native apps. It’s the same with the Apple App Store, which prefers apps developed using Swift for iOS than React Native apps. Tooling support: Both Google and Apple regularly upgrade their respective IDEs and maintain excellent documentation. If you need to frequently update your mobile app, then you will find the native development environment tools easier to use than React Native.
