React Native By Example

By: Richard Kho

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.

This was a long chapter, so thank you for staying with me! In this chapter, we obtained access to the Facebook Graph API, installed the Facebook SDK for iOS and Android, and began using the Facebook SDK to log the user into the app and use their access token to grab their feed data and render it onto the screen.

Along the way, you also used an ActivityIndicator component to visually communicate to the user that we are currently loading data.

We will ramp up a lot more in the next chapter. See you there.
