Through code examples and step-by-step instructions, web developers and frontend engineers familiar with React will learn how to build and style interfaces, use mobile components, and debug and deploy apps. You’ll learn how to extend React Native using third-party libraries or your own Java and Objective-C libraries.Understand how React Native works under the hood with native UI componentsExamine how React Native’s mobile-based components compare to basic HTML elementsCreate and style your own React Native components and applicationsTake advantage of platform-specific APIs, as well as modules from the framework’s communityIncorporate platform-specific components into cross-platform appsLearn common pitfalls of React Native development, and tools for dealing with themCombine a large application’s many screens into a cohesive UXHandle state management in a large app with the Redux library
Web developers who want to develop native mobile applications face a high barrier to entry, because they are forced to learn platform-specific languages and frameworks. Numerous hybrid technologies have tried to simplify this process, but have failed to achieve the performance and appearance that users expect.
This book will show you all the advantages of true native development that React Native has without the steep learning curve, leveraging the knowledge you already have. We do this by getting you up and running quickly with a sample application. Next, we'll introduce you to the fundamentals of creating components and explain how React Native works under the hood. Once you have established a solid foundation, you will dive headfirst into developing a real-world application from start to finish. Along the way, we will demonstrate how to create multiple screens and navigate between them,use layout and style native UI components, and access native APIs such as local storage and geolocation. Finally, we tackle the advanced topic of Native modules, which demonstrates that there are truly no limits to what you can do with React Native.Style and approach
