With Siphon you can push instant updates to your production apps. Siphon also includes a sandbox environment that lets you test React Native apps without installing Xcode or Android Studio.

AppHub and Siphon can be primarily classified as "Cross-Platform Mobile" tools.

Some of the features offered by AppHub are:

  • Instantly update app code and images without resubmitting to TestFlight or the App Store.
  • Manage compatability between multiple native and JavaScript versions of your app.
  • Download updates in the background, or while your app is executing.

    What are some alternatives to AppHub and Siphon?
    CodePush
    CodePush is a cloud service that enables Cordova and React Native developers to deploy mobile app updates directly to their users’ devices. It works by acting as a central repository that developers can publish certain updates to (e.g. JS, HTML, CSS and image changes), and that apps can query for updates from (using our provided client SDKs).
    React Navigation
    Start quickly with built-in navigators that deliver a seamless out-of-the box experience. Navigation views that deliver 60fps animations, and utilize native components to deliver a great look and feel.
    Replit
    It is a platform for creating and sharing software. You can write your code and host it all in the same place. It is also a place to learn how to code.
    Native Navigation
    There are many navigation libraries in the React Native ecosystem. Native Navigation is unique in that it is built on top of the iOS and Android platform navigational components, and this is more "native" than most other options which implement navigation from scratch in JavaScript on top of base React Native components like View and Animated.
    ReactXP
    With React and React Native, your web app can share most of its logic with your iOS and Android apps, but the view layer needs to be implemented separately for each platform. We have taken this a step further and developed a thin cross-platform layer we call ReactXP. If you write your app to this abstraction, you can share your view definitions, styles and animations across multiple target platforms. Of course, you can still provide platform-specific UI variants, but this can be done selectively where desired.
