How better React Native is and what it promises?
This means you can have all the speed and the power of a native application, with the ease of development that comes with React. The two main reasons are:
- React introduces a novel, radical and highly functional approach to constructing user interfaces. In brief, the application UI is simply expressed as a function of the current application state.
React Native Bridging Gaps
React Native is coming close to bridge the gap between the performance of a native app and the ease of development of a web app. When most of the frameworks do try to mimic native UI elements, the results usually “feel” just a little off; reverse-engineering all the fine details of things like animations take an enormous amount of effort, and they can quickly become out of date. In contrast, React Native actually translates your markup to real, native UI elements, leveraging existing means of rendering views on whatever platform you are working with.
In addition, React works separately from the main UI thread, so your application can maintain high performance without sacrificing capability. The update cycle in React Native is the same as in React: when props or state change, React Native re-renders the views. The major difference between React Native and React in the browser is that React Native does this by leveraging the UI libraries of its host platform, rather than using HTML and CSS markup.
Developer Comfort Zone
For developers accustomed to working on the Web with React, this means you can write mobile apps with the performance and look and feel of a native application, while using familiar tools. React Native also represents an improvement over normal mobile development in two other areas: the developer experience and cross-platform development potential.
React Native brings all of React.JS’s better app performance, DOM abstraction (as well as manipulation in virtual DOM), and simplified programming methods for hybrid mobile development – speed and agility of web app development with native results.
In short, React Native aims to primarily bring the power of the React programming model to mobile app development. It is the future generation framework.
