Getting Started with React Bootstrap

Introduction

Learn how to include React Bootstrap in your project

Installation

The best way to consume React-Bootstrap is via the npm package which you can install with npm (or yarn if you prefer).

If you plan on customizing the Bootstrap Sass files, or don’t want to use a CDN for the stylesheet, it may be helpful to install vanilla Bootstrap as well.

npm install react-bootstrap bootstrap

Stylesheets

Because React-Bootstrap doesn’t depend on a very precise version of Bootstrap, we don’t ship with any included CSS. However, some stylesheet is required to use these components.

CSS

{/* The following line can be included in your src/index.js or App.js file*/}

import 'bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css';

How and which Bootstrap styles you include is up to you, but the simplest way is to include the latest styles from the CDN.

<link
  rel="stylesheet"
  href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.4.1/css/bootstrap.min.css"
  integrity="sha384-Vkoo8x4CGsO3+Hhxv8T/Q5PaXtkKtu6ug5TOeNV6gBiFeWPGFN9MuhOf23Q9Ifjh"
  crossorigin="anonymous"
/>

Sass

In case you are using Sass the simplest way is to include the Bootstrap’s source Sass files in your main Sass file and then require it on your src/index.js or App.js file. This applies to a typical create-react-app application in other use cases you might have to setup the bundler of your choice to compile Sass/SCSS stylesheets to CSS.

/* The following line can be included in a src/App.scss */

@import "~bootstrap/scss/bootstrap";

/* The following line can be included in your src/index.js or App.js file */

import './App.scss';

Customize Bootstrap

If you wish to customize the Bootstrap theme or any Bootstrap variables you can create a custom Sass file:

/* The following block can be included in a custom.scss */

/* make the customizations */
$theme-colors: (
    "info": tomato,
    "danger": teal
);

/* import bootstrap to set changes */
@import "~bootstrap/scss/bootstrap";

… And import it on the main Sass file.


@import "custom";

Advanced usage

See the Bootstrap docs for more advanced use cases and details about customizing stylesheets.

Importing

You should import individual components like: react-bootstrap/Button rather than the entire library. Doing so pulls in only the specific components that you use, which can significantly reduce the amount of code you end up sending to the client.

import Button from 'react-bootstrap/Button';

// or less ideally
import { Button } from 'react-bootstrap';

Browser globals

We provide react-bootstrap.js and react-bootstrap.min.js bundles with all components exported on the window.ReactBootstrap object. These bundles are available on unpkg, as well as in the npm package.

<script src="https://unpkg.com/react/umd/react.production.min.js" crossorigin />

<script
  src="https://unpkg.com/react-dom/umd/react-dom.production.min.js"
  crossorigin
/>

<script
  src="https://unpkg.com/react-bootstrap@next/dist/react-bootstrap.min.js"
  crossorigin
/>

<script>var Alert = ReactBootstrap.Alert;</script>

Examples

React-Bootstrap has started a repo with a few basic CodeSandbox examples. Click here to check them out.

Themes

React-Bootstrap is compatible with existing Bootstrap themes. Just follow the installation instructions for your theme of choice.

Watch out!

Because React-Bootstrap completely reimplements Bootstrap’s JavaScript, it’s not automatically compatible with themes that extend the default JavaScript behaviors.

Create React App

If you would like to add a custom theme on your app using Create React App, they have additional documentation for Create React App and Bootstrap here

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.
