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.

Annotating points of interest

Annotations are exactly what they sound like; additional information rendered on top of the basic map geography. In fact, you get annotations by default when you render MapView components. The MapView component can render the user's current location and points of interest around the user. The challenge here is that you probably want to show points of interest that are relevant to your application, instead of the points of interest that are rendered by default.

In this section, you'll learn how to render markers for specific locations on the map, as well as render regions on the map.

Plotting points

Let's plot some local breweries! Here's how you pass annotations to the MapView component:

import React from "react";
import { View } from "react-native";
import MapView from "react-native-maps";
import styles from "./styles";

export default function App() {
return (
<View style={styles.container}&gt...
