React and React Native - Third Edition

By: Adam Boduch, Roy Derks

Overview of this book

React and React Native, Facebook’s innovative User Interface (UI) libraries, are designed to help you build robust cross-platform web and mobile applications. This updated third edition is improved and updated to cover the latest version of React. The book particularly focuses on the latest developments in the React ecosystem, such as modern Hook implementations, code splitting using lazy components and Suspense, user interface framework components using Material-UI, and Apollo. In terms of React Native, the book has been updated to version 0.62 and demonstrates how to apply native UI components for your existing mobile apps using NativeBase. You will begin by learning about the essential building blocks of React components. Next, you’ll progress to working with higher-level functionalities in application development, before putting this knowledge to use by developing user interface components for the web and for native platforms. In the concluding chapters, you’ll learn how to bring your application together with a robust data architecture. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to build React applications for the web and React Native applications for multiple mobile platforms.

Sorting and filtering lists

Now that you have learned the basics of FlatList components, including how to pass data, let's add some controls to the list that you just implemented in the Rendering data collections section. The FlatList component helps you render fixed-position content for list controls. You'll also see how to manipulate the data source, which ultimately drives what's rendered on the screen.

Before implementing list control components, it might be helpful to review the high-level structure of these components so that the code has more context. Here's an illustration of the component structure that you're going to implement:

Here's what each of these components is responsible for:

  • ListContainer: The overall container for the list; it follows the familiar React container pattern
  • List: A stateless component that passes the relevant pieces of state intoListControls and the React Native ListView component
  • ListControls: A component that holds the...
