Installation

The components provided by this package are available for apps built with Expo (created with create-react-native-app), but also for apps with native code (created with react-native init). You should install the package that matches your situation:

# For Expo apps
npm i expo-activity-feed --save

# For apps with native code
npm i react-native-activity-feed --save

Both packages export the same components (which they re-export from the underlying react-native-activity-feed-core package).

Final setup steps for the react-native-activity-feed package

If you use the package for apps with native code you need to do some more steps to get the image upload functionality working. If you don’t need that feel free to skip these steps.

  1. Run the following command:
react-native link react-native-image-picker

Add the following permissions to android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>

Add the following key/value pairs to ios/{app-name-here}/Info.plist:

	<key>NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription</key>
	<string>$(PRODUCT_NAME) would like access to your photo gallery</string>
	<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
	<string>$(PRODUCT_NAME) would like to use your camera</string>
	<key>NSPhotoLibraryAddUsageDescription</key>
	<string>$(PRODUCT_NAME) would like to save photos to your photo gallery</string>
	<key>NSMicrophoneUsageDescription</key>
	<string>$(PRODUCT_NAME) would like to your microphone (for videos)</string>
  1. Make sure that the gradle version inside android/build.gradle is 2.2.0 or higher:
buildscript {
    // ....
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.3.3'
    }
}

Usage & Activity Feed setup

Setup StreamApp component

In order to use Stream React Components in your application, you first need to initialize the StreamApp component. StreamApp holds your application config and acts as a service/data provider.

<StreamApp
  apiKey="{API_KEY}"
  appId="{APP_ID}"
  userId="{USER_ID}"
  token="{TOKEN}"
  analyticsToken="{ANALYTICS_TOKEN}"
>
  {/* everything from your application interacting with Stream should be nested here */}
</StreamApp>
  1. API_KEY your Stream application API_KEY
  2. API_ID your Stream application ID
  3. USER_ID current user’s ID
  4. TOKEN the authentication token for current user
  5. ANALYTICS_TOKEN [optional] the Analytics auth token

You can find your API_KEY and APP_ID on Stream’s dashboard.

Generating user token

The authentication user token cannot be generated client-side (that would require sharing your API secret). You should provision a user token as part of the sign-up / login flow to your application from your backend.

const client = stream.connect(API_KEY, API_SECRET);
const userToken = client.createUserToken(userId);
console.log(userToken);
Generating analytics token

React components have analytics instrumentation built-in, this simplifies the integration with Stream. In order to enable analytics tracking, you need to initialize StreamApp with a valid analytics token. You can generate this server-side as well.

const client = stream.connect(API_KEY, API_SECRET);
const analyticsToken = client.getAnalyticsToken();
console.log(analyticsToken);

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.
