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.

 Component Life Cycle in React

Every component in React goes through a lifecycle of events. You can think is of going through a cycle of birth, growth, and death the same as the picture below.

The phases are:

  • Initialization — Starting the journey of your component
  • Mounting — Birth of your component
  • Update — Growth of your component
  • Unmount — Death of your component

1. Initialization

This is the phase in which the component is going to start its journey. The developer has to define the props and initial state of the component. This is usually done inside the constructor method (see below to understand the initialization phase better).

ReactJS Tutorial for Beginners

Welcome to part-5 of the series. You can find part-4 here. We will learn about state in this part, but let’s first understand the difference between state and props.

props vs state

Since, react have two important concepts. One been props and other been state, they are compared a lot. And also differentiated a lot. Below diagram show the difference between them.

props vs state

state in code

As, per the above diagram state is managed within a component. So, we will first create a state variable. Create a new file Counter.js inside the component folder. It is a class based component and we have the class constructor in it. The state variable is declared with this.state inside a constructor and is an object. We can put any numbers of key-value pair in it.

We are declaring count inside the state variable, with the initial value of 0. Now, inside our render() method we access it by this.state.count.

Counter.js

Now, in localhost it will show the initial value.

localhost

Now, whenever we want to change the value of state, we do it thorough setState method. We have added a button and a onClick event to it. Next, we are calling **incrementCount **function.

On important thing to notice is that at line 9, we are using the bind. This is done because the this keyword will throw error, if we don’t give it.

Inside the **incrementCount **function, we are calling the this.setState and increasing the count value.
