React Native By Example

Overview of this book

React Native's ability to build performant mobile applications with JavaScript has resulted in its popularity amongst developers. Developers now have the luxury to create incredible mobile experiences that look and feel native to their platforms with the comfort of a well-known language and the popular React.js library. This book will show you how to build your own native mobile applications for the iOS and Android platforms while leveraging the finesse and simplicity of JavaScript and React. Throughout the book you will build three projects, each of increasing complexity. You will also link up with the third-party Facebook SDK, convert an app to support the Redux architecture, and learn the process involved in making your apps available for sale on the iOS App Store and Google Play. At the end of this book, you will have learned and implemented a wide breadth of core APIs and components found in the React Native framework that are necessary in creating great mobile experiences.

Moving beyond MVP

Now that we have a very bare-bones MVP completed, the next goal is to add some features to the application so that it's fully-fledged.

Here's what I wrote earlier regarding some nice-to-have features:


I'd like to set a reminder for each unique task so that I can get to each one in an orderly fashion. Ideally, the items on the list can be grouped into categories. Category grouping could perhaps be simplified by something like icons. This way, I can also sort and filter my list by icons.

In addition to the features, we should tweak the styling of the application so that it looks better. In my sample code, the app's components conflict with the iOS's status bar and the rows aren't formatted at all. We should give the app its own identity.

The next chapter will dive deeper into our MVP and transform it into a fully-featured and styled application. We'll also look at things we would do differently if the app were written for Android instead.
