Overview of this book

Developed by Facebook, React is a popular library for building impressive user interfaces. React extends its capabilities to the mobile platform using the React Native framework and integrates with popular web and mobile tools to build scalable applications. React Projects is your guide to learning React development by using modern development patterns and integrating React with powerful web tools such as GraphQL, Expo, and React 360. You'll start building a real-world project right from the first chapter and get hands on with developing scalable applications as you advance to building more complex projects. Throughout the book, you'll use the latest versions of React and React Native to explore features such as Higher Order Components (HOC), Context, and Hooks on multiple platforms, which will help you build full stack web and mobile applications efficiently. Finally, you'll delve into unit testing with Jest to build test-driven apps. By the end of this React book, you'll have developed the skills necessary to start building scalable React apps across web and mobile platforms.

Getting started

The project that we'll create in this chapter builds upon an initial version that you can find on GitHub: https://github.com/PacktPublishing/React-Projects/tree/ch11-initial. The complete source code can also be found on GitHub: https://github.com/PacktPublishing/React-Projects/tree/ch11.

You need to have the application Expo Client installed on a mobile iOS or Android device to run the project on a physical device.

It's highly recommended to use the Expo Client application to run the project from this chapter on a physical device. Receiving notifications is currently only supported on physical devices, and running the project on either the iOS simulator or Android Studio emulator will result in error messages.

Alternatively, you can install either Xcode or Android Studio on your computer to run the application on a virtual device:
