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.

I would like to immensely thank my girlfriend Ro for her support and encouragement in my life, and for her tremendous help overcoming a couple cases of writer’s block while writing this book. I also want to thank my two cats, Mystique and Walter, for keeping me company during my writing sessions.

I also owe a deep amount of gratitude to my parents, Bakthong and Seuchyong, for encouraging this career change; without them I would not feel as empowered as I am today.

I’d like to thank Pavan Ravipati and Arian Faurtosh, who I worked closely with as we dove into a very beta release of React Native back in 2015 and helped spark my interest in this framework. Additionally, I owe a big thanks to Marlene Fong who has been a very generous and patient mentor during the times I struggled when first learning how to code.
