Got an idea for a new mobile app? You might want to consider building it with a new React Native tool from the folks at Facebook, which works for iOS and Android projects on any OS.
In addition, you’ll also be able to access APIs for things like the camera, contacts, maps and Facebook authentication. However, if you need to include native code in your project, you’ll have to eject it and then continue your build in Xcode or Android Studio.
To get started, all you have to do is install the tool using a few command-line interface instructions to create a project and start the React Native packager. Next, open the QR code that’s automatically generated using the Expo Android or iOS app on your mobile device, and you’re good to go.
You can find out more about CRNA and grab the tool from this GitHub repository.
