In this video I show how to use React Context. We’ll create a context provider that will hold a list of notes. Then I compare it to Redux.
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.

Redux has become one of the most popular libraries in front-end development since it was introduced by Dan Abramov and Andrew Clark in 2015. They designed it as the successor for Flux, with the support of some developer tools and a few more concepts embedded in it.

Despite its advantages, some developers have found it rather challenging to deal with Redux due to the amount of boilerplate code introduced with it. And the complexity of the code seems to be another reason for the difficulty.
In this article, we will look at how to reduce the boilerplate code brought about by Actions and Reducers using Redux-Actions

React Native Redux Example | How To Use Redux In React Native is today’s leading topic. Redux is a standalone state management library, which can be used with any library or framework. If your background is React developer, then you have used the Redux library with React.
The primary use of Redux is that we can use one application state as a global state and interact with the state from any react component is very easy, whether they are siblings or parent-child. Now, let us start the React Native Redux Example Tutorial by installing React Native on Mac first.
We start our project by installing React Native CLI globally on the Mac. You can skip the following command if you have already installed it.

Redux is super simple to use. Actions are used to indicate what can be possible done to the states, reducers are used to indicate the transformation of the state, dispatch is used to execute the action and store is used to combine all together. Is it sounds like greek? let me explain in detail.
Why we need redux? can’t we use states and props? This is an additional burden.
Let me explain, If sub component has its’ own states then it is not a problem to manage them. Then what if those data is needed for the sub component two. Then we have to do **state uplifting **and pass those data to the parent component as follows and pass them to the child component as props. Then it is still manageable.
What if those data is needed for Component One and Component Two as well. Then we have to face the problem of **props drilling **as follows because we have to pass those data here and there using props and it become a burden.
Then redux come to solve this issue by separating the data from components as follows.

How to set up a basic version of Redux in your React or React Native application. To make things clearer, I based my setup on my event application, where users create events that other users attend. We generated the action creators, reducers, and Redux store, and wrapped the application in a provider. Today I’ll finish the loop and talk about how to access the Redux store in your application using both class and functional components. The provider we added to the root component provides the store to all the components in your application. Therefore, we will just look at how to access the store from an individual component.
