React Native Features

In this tutorial you will learn about the React Native Features and its application with practical example.

React Native Features

Building a cross platform mobile applications using React native comes several features. Some of them are listed below –

JavaScript :- React Native lets you build fully native mobile application using JavaScript.

Cross-Platform :- React Native lets you write cross-platform native applications using JavaScript in a single codebase for both Android and iOS, later then Javascript is compiled to native code.

Community :- React Native is backed with a large community of React and React Native developers. So it is easy to find help if you stuck at some point while developing an application.

Development Time :- It saves development time required in building mobile applications for multiple platforms.

Cost Effective :- It reduces the cost to build mobile apps for multiple platforms.

Hot Reloading :- One of the biggest frustrations as mobile application developer you have probably faced is constant recompiling of project. Whenever you make a small change you need to recompile the project completely to check your changes in effect. React Native fixed this problem by taking the advantage of Hot Reload feature that allows developers to view changes live as they make them.

Single Codebase :- This is one of the most appealing feature of React Native which lets you write a cross-platform mobile application using JavaScript in a single codebase for both Android and iOS. React Native provides a virtual DOM that renders platform specific components behind the scenes.

Simple User Interface :- React Native offers much more simplified responsive User Interface and reduces the loading time as well.

Stable Apps :- In React Native, the process of data binding is simplified and child components does not have any dependencies on the parent data which makes application more stable and increased level of reliability. In React Native, only permitted components are allowed to be updated when any modification or update is made in application.

Modular Architecture :- React Native follows the modular programming, which allows us to split the application into independent reusable components/module. Module is simply an independent, fully functional and reusable piece of code which usually contains Javascript code.

Third-Party Plugin Support :- React Native offers the support for third-party plugins including native modules and JavaScript modules that is not part of core React Native framework.
