The year 2020 has seen a lot of changes in the React Native world:

  • community adoption of React Hooks in React Native apps has increased
  • the docs have a new domain
  • the popular navigation library react-navigation adopted a declarative and component-based approach to implement navigation in an app
  • react-native-firebase, the go-to package to use Firebase SDK, released its sixth version

In this tutorial, I am going to walk you through building a simple chat application that a user can log in to without credentials and straightaway enter a chat room using the anonymous sign-in method provided by Firebase.

The purpose of this tutorial is to get you familiar with all the latest updates in React Native world and its libraries like react-navigation and react-native-firebase that are used often. If you wish to add a new feature that is not covered in this tutorial, feel free to do that and follow along at your own pace.
