Even though React Native and ReactJS are similar in a way, but there are some differences you need to know before starting your first native app.
In this write-up, I will be putting a fine line difference between both React Native and ReactJS in the following areas.
Start-up or Set-up and Bundling:
As a developer if you are starting up or setting up a new project using ReactJS, you have to choose a bundler like Web pack and also try to know the bundling modules needed for the project. This is not the case with React Native as it comes with everything you need which makes starting up a new project super easy and fast. As a matter of fact, you only need a command line to make coding for your first native app.
The use of HTML and Styling:
Creation of gestures and animation:
Navigating between scenes:
You might be wondering how to navigate between scenes while developing your first mobile app. You don’t need to look for an alternative to react-router usually used to transits between pages which could be complicated in some situations and might not give you exactly what you need. But with React Native, you won’t encounter all these challenges.
Other differences are seen in the specific codes used on both platforms and the fact that there is no need for installing any developer tool while doing a new project with React Native.
