Now that you have an idea about how React Native works and how to create components, let's create your first React Native application. Throughout this book, we will be developing a note-taking application which we'll call ReactNotes. By the end of the book, you'll have a fully featured application that allows you to create notes, save them to a device, view the list of the notes you've saved, take pictures with the device and attach them to your notes, and much more.
In this chapter, we'll build the skeleton of the application, create a
NoteScreen. We'll also add navigation that allows you to switch between the screens, and along the way you'll learn about creating your own components and handling events.
The topics that we will cover in this chapter are:
How to generate iOS and Android project files
Examining the React Native starter template
Creating the first component,
Debugging with Chrome Developer Tools
