To reduce your stress level by help you to decide what suits the best to your business, I come up here with some true facts about react naive which we can’t ignore.
Here’s a quick guide that might help you and your team make a decision about whether React Native is a good choice for you.
-What is React native?
-How React Native is different from React?
The primary difference between React and React Native as react is used for the web app development whereas react native is used for mobile app development.
Let’s try to understand both technologies in a better manner:
-Key points of using react:
- Virtual DOM is faster than a conventional full refresh model (refreshing pages partially);
- Mild learning curve, doesn’t require learning multiple specific concepts;
- Reusable code components;
- Good SEO when used together with a server-side renderer;
- Its provide a stable working code due to one-directional data;
- Its Easy in debugging;
- Easy HTML decomposition into independent and reusable pieces of code;
- Easy testing with JEST.
-Key points of using React Native:
- Mostly benefits are matching with the React.js too but with a better focus on UI;
- No need to build separate apps for iOS and Android – the common logic layer is often reusable, while other parts of an application must be written separately for iOS and Android;
- Its structure is component-based which enables smooth development, even without any web;
- Native components and modules really enhance performance, also native APIs to render certain code;
- Resulting apps are in fact "native" – not Web Views, but compiled to machine code of a specific platform;
- If you have a mobile app to upgrade, you can just add React Native UI components to its code.
