Facebook's React came to the world of software development responded with a lot of questions and skepticisms. But React has proved tremendously successful on many projects around the web including Netflix.
And now with React Native, the framework has been brought to mobile. React Native is a great option for creating apps in iOS and Android natively.
Then why React Native is the future of app development? Here are the reasons:
Facebook first developed React Native to support only iOS. Now with its recent support of the Android operating system, the library can render mobile user experiences for both platforms.
React Native's building block are reusable native components that compile directly to native. The component-based structure also allows you to build apps with a more agile, web-style approach to development than typical hybrid frameworks.
You can apply React Native UI components to an existing app's code without any rewriting at all. You can incorporate React Native components into your app's code or reuse the Cordova-based code easily with a plugin.
Native app development is usually associated with inefficiency and slower time to deployment. But React Native is all about bringing the speed and agility to the hybrid space with native results. React Native also brings all of ReactJS's better app performance, DOM abstraction, and simplified programming methods to hybrid mobile development.
It already mentioned that React Native offers third-party plugin compatibility. React Native lets you link the plugin with a native module so you can link up with the device's functions while using less memory and loading faster.
