Native Navigation vs React Navigation: What are the differences?

Developers describe Native Navigation as "Native navigation library for React Native application, by Airbnb". 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. On the other hand, React Navigation is detailed as "Flexible navigation library for React Native and web. Learn once, navigate anywhere". 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.

Native Navigation and React Navigation can be categorized as "Cross-Platform Mobile" tools.

Native Navigation and React Navigation are both open source tools. React Navigation with 15.9K GitHub stars and 3.34K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Native Navigation with 3.12K GitHub stars and 192 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to Native Navigation and React Navigation?
    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).
    repl.it
    Write and run code in virtually any language in the browser. Host servers and static websites. Install packages on the fly. Easily share your code with anyone else and invite them to edit. Join our community of creators.
    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.
    Interactable
    This is an experimental implementation of a declarative API for handling fluid user interactions with views at 60 FPS in React Native.
    Expo Sketch
    Instantly test your code on a device, or in the browser. You can either preview the component on the emulator inside the browser, or open it directly on your device with the Expo app. The UI updates as you type — every keystroke, without having to hit save.
