React Native: Building Windows Apps

Hero Image with Logo

See the official React Native website for an introduction to React Native.

React Native is a framework developed by Meta that enables you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms using a consistent developer experience based on JavaScript and React. The focus of React Native is on developer efficiency across all the platforms you care about - learn once, write anywhere.

This repository adds support for the Windows 10 SDK, which allows you to build apps for all devices supported by Windows 10 including PCs, tablets, 2-in-1s, Xbox, Mixed reality devices etc.

Visit the official React Native for Windows + macOS website to learn more.
