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.

Chapter 7. Redux

Now that we have had a chance to get our feet wet with React Native, it's time to dive into some serious architecture. One of the things that you might have encountered with our previous apps is that our components ended up encapsulating a large amount of logic in them and that some files ran several hundred lines. In this chapter, we're going to introduce a new architecture for our apps to reduce bloat in our components. In this chapter, we will do the following:

  • Learn about Redux, the architecture that will help manage our React Native apps' state and data flow
  • Install the dependencies for Redux in our application
  • Refactor Tasks, our to-do list app, to use Redux
