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.
Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.
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:
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:
Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

UI design for native Android and iOS applications can be complex and demanding. However, the importance of sleek and responsive UI cannot be overstated. With the introduction of the Material Design concept in 2014, Google established a standard for mobile and web development that makes life easier for developers and UI designers.
As one of the most popular frameworks for building native Android and iOS applications, React Native ships with a lot of libraries for Material Design. With over 46,000 downloads per week, Paper is the most popular React Native library based entirely on Material UI. A fast library, Paper makes the UI design process easy, seamless and efficient.
Here is a synopsis of what we will cover:
Let’s get started.
If you don’t have the expo CLI, install it globally in your computer using the following command:
npm install -g expo-cli
Then, install a blank React Native (expo) project:
expo init --template bare-minimum
Open the project in your favorite editor. To open it in Visual Studio Code, navigate to the project root and enter the following command:
The project structure will look like this:
#react native #react #material ui
We’re going to learn how to use the Material UI Grid system using the Material UI react library. The grid system can be used to create fluid responsive elements for different screen sizes.

Due to its popularity, many UI libraries and kits have built custom React components to facilitate easy integration and improve the developer experience.
There are many React UI libraries and kits smoothly running today. In this article, we shall highlight the ten most powerful libraries. These libraries were chosen based on the Github stars and usage plus the support community on Stackoverflow.
Note: All the statistics used in this article were extracted in August 2020 and may probably change with time.
Material UI is based on Google’s Material Design. It provides easier and faster React components built with Material Design.
