React Native: A framework for building native apps with React. React Native enables you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms using a consistent developer experience based on JavaScript and React. The focus of React Native is on developer efficiency across all the platforms you care about - learn once, write anywhere. Facebook uses React Native in multiple production apps and will continue investing in React Native; Trigger.io: The simplest way to build amazing mobile apps using the best of HTML5 and native. You write your HTML5 code using the Forge JavaScript API which gives you access to native features such as the camera and contacts API.

React Native and Trigger.io belong to "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by React Native are:

  • Native iOS Components
  • Asynchronous Execution
  • Touch Handling

On the other hand, Trigger.io provides the following key features:

  • Build native apps for iOS and Android using JavaScript
  • Native UI, push, analytics, login modules "out-of-the box"

      What are some alternatives to React Native and Trigger.io?
      Flutter
      Flutter is a mobile app SDK to help developers and designers build modern mobile apps for iOS and Android.
      Swift
      Writing code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and apps run lightning-fast. Swift is ready for your next iOS and OS X project — or for addition into your current app — because Swift code works side-by-side with Objective-C.
      Xamarin
      Xamarin’s Mono-based products enable .NET developers to use their existing code, libraries and tools (including Visual Studio*), as well as skills in .NET and the C# programming language, to create mobile applications for the industry’s most widely-used mobile devices, including Android-based smartphones and tablets, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
      NativeScript
      NativeScript enables developers to build native apps for iOS, Android and Windows Universal while sharing the application code across the platforms. When building the application UI, developers use our libraries, which abstract the differences between the native platforms.
      React
      Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.

      Native iOS developer here. One of the most important thing React Native managed to accomplish is that it created a better single-platform development experience than the platform owner themselves did. It's faster and easier to develop a react native app than it is to develop an iOS app. And remember that react native is at the end of the day still native. So native views, native components, native modules. You get to pick and choose how much you want to be in JavaScript and how much you want to be in native.

      React Native is great in that it reduces the overhead of writing native code based on a web app. If written in a good style, Redux part of the app can often just be copied or shared in the Native app - and it just works! What a timesaver.

      The framework used to write the mobile apps in this project. I've chosen this because of the "write once run all" (ios and android) mentality.

      We are not currently using this product but we have very high interest in learning and using this for mobile apps.

      New features of our app are developed on React Native, so we could maintain a small dev team.

      100% of our mobile codebase is shared between iOS and Android. Using along with TypeScript.
