Overview of this book

If you are a developer looking to create mobile applications with maximized code reusability and minimized cost, React Native is what you need. With this practical guide, you’ll be able to build attractive UIs, tackle common problems in mobile development, and achieve improved performance in mobile environments. This book starts by covering the common techniques for React Native customization and helps you set up your development platforms. Over the course of the book, you’ll work through a wide variety of recipes that help you create, style, and animate your apps with built-in React Native and custom third-party components. You’ll also develop real-world browser-based authentication, build a fully functional audio player, and integrate Google Maps in your apps. This book will help you explore different strategies for working with data, including leveraging the popular Redux library and optimizing your app’s dataflow. You’ll also learn how to write native device functionality for new and existing React Native projects and how app deployment works. By the end of this book, you'll be equipped with tips and tricks to write efficient code and have the skills to build full iOS and Android applications using React Native.

Who this book is for

This book has been designed with beginner to intermediate level React Native developers in mind. Even if you don't have a lot of experience with web development, the JavaScript found in this book should hopefully never be over your head. I've tried to avoid complexity wherever possible, to keep the focus on the lesson being taught within a given recipe.

This book also assumes the developer works on a computer running macOS. While it is technically possible to develop React Native apps using Windows or Linux, there are a number of limitations that make macOS machines much more preferable for React Native development, including the abilities to work with native iOS code via Xcode, run iOS code on the iOS simulator, and work with the most robust development tools for React Native app development.
