React Native vs Web Starter Kit: What are the differences?
React Native and Web Starter Kit can be categorized as "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" tools.
Some of the features offered by React Native are:
- Native iOS Components
- Asynchronous Execution
- Touch Handling
On the other hand, Web Starter Kit provides the following key features:
- Multi-device responsive boilerplate
- Living component style guide
- Cross-device Synchronization
"Learn once write everywhere" is the primary reason why developers consider React Native over the competitors, whereas "Easy to use" was stated as the key factor in picking Web Starter Kit.
React Native and Web Starter Kit are both open source tools. It seems that React Native with 78.8K GitHub stars and 17.6K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Web Starter Kit with 18.6K GitHub stars and 3.21K GitHub forks.

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.
