    <string>UIApplicationShortcutIconTypeLocation</string>
    <key>UIApplicationShortcutItemTitle</key>
    <string>Action Title</string>
    <key>UIApplicationShortcutItemType</key>
    <string>$(PRODUCT_BUNDLE_IDENTIFIER).action</string>
  </dict>
</array>

A full list of available icons can be found here:

https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/ios/icons-and-images/system-icons/#quick-action-icons

Adding dynamic quick actions

In order to add / remove dynamic actions during application lifecycle, you need to import react-native-quick-actions and call either setShortcutItems to set actions or clearShortcutItems to clear.

import QuickActions from "react-native-quick-actions";

QuickActions.setShortcutItems([
  {
    type: "Orders", // Required
    title: "See your orders", // Optional, if empty, `type` will be used instead
    subtitle: "See orders you've made",
    icon: "Compose", // Icons instructions below
    userInfo: {
      url: "app://orders" // Provide any custom data like deep linking URL
    }
  }
]);

NOTE Currently android only supports a url key in userInfo. No other keys are supported. See #93 for more information.

To clear actions:

QuickActions.clearShortcutItems();

Icons

iOS

On iOS you can use the default icons provided by Apple, they’re listed here: https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/ios/icons-and-images/system-icons/#quick-action-icons

You can also use custom icons creating new Image set inside Image.xcassets on XCode. You’ll need to define the 1x, 2x and 3x sizes.

Android

On Android you’ll need to create an image file (use PNG) inside android/app/src/main/res/drawable.

Name the image with underscores, don’t use hyphens.

Listening for quick actions

First, you’ll need to make sure DeviceEventEmitter is added to the list of requires for React Native.

import { DeviceEventEmitter } from "react-native";

Use DeviceEventEmitter to listen for quickActionShortcut messages.

DeviceEventEmitter.addListener("quickActionShortcut", data => {
  console.log(data.title);
  console.log(data.type);
  console.log(data.userInfo);
});

To get any actions sent when the app is cold-launched using the following code:

import QuickActions from "react-native-quick-actions";

function doSomethingWithTheAction(data) {
  console.log(data.title);
  console.log(data.type);
  console.log(data.userInfo);
}

QuickActions.popInitialAction()
  .then(doSomethingWithTheAction)
  .catch(console.error);

Please note that on Android if android:launchMode is set to default value standard in AndroidManifest.xml, the app will be re-created each time when app is being brought back from background and it won’t receive quickActionShortcut event from DeviceEventEmitter, instead popInitialAction will be receiving the app shortcut event.

Check if 3D Touch is supported

The following function will alert you if the user’s device supports 3D Touch. Please note this project currently only supports iOS 9+ which means this code will not work on iOS devices running versions < 9.0.

import QuickActions from "react-native-quick-actions";

QuickActions.isSupported((error, supported) => {
  if (!supported) {
    console.log("Device does not support 3D Touch or 3D Touch is disabled.");
  }
});

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.
