React NativeReact Native

Hi, I've built a static website using Jekyll for Higher Maths: I'd like to create an App for the same and based on the research I did, React Native turned out to be the platform that I should consider for the same (as I can also maintain a Web version by learning React). At this point of time, I'd like the app to have following functionalities: 1) Login/ Signup 2) Enrol in a course 3) Attempt Tests

Please suggest a relatively fast way to get started and build the App. Thanks in advance.

I've heard that I have the ability to write well, at times. When it flows, it flows. I decided to start blogging in 2013 on Blogger. I started a company and joined BizPark with the Microsoft Azure allotment. I created a WordPress blog and did a migration at some point. A lot happened in the time after that migration but I stopped coding and changed cities during tumultuous times that taught me many lessons concerning mental health and productivity. I eventually graduated from BizSpark and outgrew the credit allotment. That killed the WordPress blog.

I blogged about writing again on the existing Blogger blog but it didn't feel right. I looked at a few options where I wouldn't have to worry about hosting cost indefinitely and Jekyll stood out with GitHub Pages. The Importer was fairly straightforward for the existing blog posts.

Todo * Set up redirects for all posts on blogger. The URI format is different so a complete redirect wouldn't work. Although, there may be something in Jekyll that could manage the redirects. I did notice the old URLs were stored in the front matter. I'm working on a command-line Ruby gem for the current plan. * I did find some of the lost WordPress posts on that I downloaded with the waybackmachinedownloader. I think I might write an importer for that. * I still have a few Disqus comment threads to map

Writing and publishing articles is pretty much technology agnostic now with the right configuration. I'm looking at setting up a pipeline that will publish to every platform I like from markdown that I write on whatever device I feel like writing on. It is still fun to play around with different platforms though, I can't deny that :).
