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.

That's it for this chapter! You've just taken your first step into publishing the apps you build with React Native for both iOS and Android devices.

In this chapter, we learned about the requirements and costs of signing up for developer accounts to publish our apps to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Then we looked at the requirements for submitting an app to those marketplaces, including app icons and screenshots.

We also built and uploaded app files for both platforms, generated a signed APK for our Android app, and then submitted the apps for distribution. Finally, we discovered how to make our apps available for prerelease testing with TestFlight for iOS and the Google Developer Console for Android.

In the final chapter, we're going to look at parts of the React Native SDK that we couldn't fit into our three existing projects, and discover how to use them.
