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.

How to Build React Component using React, React DOM and Babel

Now Let’s start discussing today’s topic.Today we’ll discuss about basic things you must know about React Library.It’s a famous front-end library which use in IT industry for business applications.Also day by day it’s getting updated.So, It will be much important for you to keep in touch with this library if you are willing/doing a_ job in IT industry _as it’s already a trending front-end technology now a days.So we’ll discuss it in details now and create your first React Component.

What is React ?

Simply, React is a JavaScript library that use to create _User Interfaces which runs on browsers _which was created by** Facebook._(one of the most popular ones, with over 100,000 stars on GitHub). It is the _view_ layer of an _MVC application**_ (Model View Controller)_

NOTE: React is not a framework.It’s a JavaScript library.

For a business application(client application) to be extremely successful it must be maintainable,manageable and_ re-usable.__Because when the business is expanding and when the customers asking for more improvement/changes the development team must be much responsible for making quick changes in the client application as soon as possible.That’s a more than 100% truth in _IT industry.So you must be a fast learner and a fast adapter when client requests rapid and complex changes in your business application.

Does React helps to overcome implementation complexity of client’s business applications

Yes.This is the most valuable and important thing which helps you when implementing a complex business application.React uses a concept called_ re-usable component__ which you may feel much comfortable with.It makes you re-use the same code in several places.Only thing you need to do is make changes to your props and __states.Using tiny components you could build your complex application in a simple way. __Also as this is a view part of the application it doesn’t depend(isolated with) on the _server state.

Components_ are like custom, reusable HTML elements, to quickly and efficiently build__ user interfaces_

_Now it’s time to try this with your own.I’m used _this online editor.It shows HTML, CSS, JavaScript sections clearly and separately.I recommend you to use it to make your first _React Component.

_We’ll create a simple HTML element which displays name and age of a __Person _using CSS styling as below(Image shows how a Person Component used to display information of two persons called Sanath and Pramod);

Image for post


You only need both HTML,CSS files below to implement Person component using HTML and CSS.Use below code in editor to try this.

Build a simple React Native Pokemon app with React-Navigation

As we start learning new technologies we want to start building something or work on a simple project to get a better understanding of the technology. So, let’s build this simple app.
For this app, we will be using PokeApi to get our pokemon data, and also we will be using Hooks. I am using pokemondb for pokemon sprites. It’s just a personal preference you can use whatever you want.
