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.

Planning the Redux conversion

The approach we will take in converting our app to Redux will involve multiple steps:

  1. First, we should begin by scaffolding a Redux project by creating a store, wrapping the AppContainer around a Provider, and creating some basic actions and reducers to handle very basic functionality--we can worry about persistent storage later.
  2. Then, we will begin converting the TasksList component to Redux by creating a TasksListContainer and mapping our actions and state tree to the TasksList component. Any other components from when we built Tasks in Chapter 1First Project - Creating a Basic To-Do List App, and Chapter 2, Advanced Functionality and Styling the To-Do List App, will remain untouched for the time being.
  3. Afterwards, we will modify the TasksList component to take advantage of its container by removing all component-unspecific logic from it.
  4. We will repeat this series of steps for the EditTask component.
  5. Finally, we should address the asynchronous calls to the...
