If you’ve got an idea for a new mobile app, look no further than React Native. Getting started has never been easier with Facebook’s new React Native tool that works for iOS and Android projects on and – I repeat any – OS.
On March 13, Facebook announced Create React Native App (CRNA) which makes building apps across various platforms easier than ever. You don’t need Xcode or a Mac (let’s be honest those are pricy) to build an iOS app. In the same breath, you also don‘t need Android Studio to create Android Software. You can develop for an iOS device using Windows or Linux, which you probably know is groundbreaking in itself if you’ve ever tried to make an iOS app.
“Many developers struggle with installing and configuring React Native‘s current native build dependencies, especially for Android. With Create React Native App, there‘s no need to use Xcode or Android Studio,” said Adam Perry, a React Native Developer.
Unfortunately, you still may need to include native code in your project. It really depends on the kind of project you have. Fortunately, this is pretty easy using Create React Native. You can just eject the code and continue in Xcode or Android Studio. You can run npm run eject to get a project similar to what react-native init would create, but you must continue in Xcode and/or Android Studio like you would if you started with react-native init in the first place.
Getting started is simple. Just install the tool using a few command-line interface instructions (replace with suitable yarn commands if you have that installed).
$ npm i -g create-react-native-app
$ create-react-native-app my-project
$ cd my-project
$ npm start
This code starts the React Native packager, and prints a QRC code that’s automatically generated using the Expo Android or iOS app on your mobile device. It’s that simple.
The app is currently stable enough for general use, so give it a go, and tell us what you think in the comments.
