The React Native framework actually started its journey as part of a hackathon effort in 2013. It was built to respond to the fast changing needs of the developer community.
Developers wanted a mobile alternative that would be a classic combination of the advantages of mobile app development with the power and agility of the native React environment. The answer was ReactNative, a framework created by Facebook, and supported and continuously pushed forward by the development community.
Five main reasons for using ReactNative
- Reusable components for Hybrid Apps to render natively
ReactNative is widely preferred because of a number of reasons, ability to re-use native components for hybrid platforms, is definitely one of them. It has building blocks with reusable “native components that compile directly to native. To explain this in simpler words, we may say that components used in iOS or Android have counterparts right in React, thus making it easier to maintain a consistent look and feel.
ReactNative also allows you to build apps with a more agile, web-style approach to development compared to typical hybrid frameworks, without the need of web. This also means retaining the speed, look, and functionality of a native mobile application.
- React Native is best suited for UI
- Highly recommended by developers
- Debugging Tools
- Virtual DOM
Here we have listed a few reasons why React Native has become a preferred framework in the developing world. React Native is fast evolving as a great skill and will continue to grow more in the coming years.
