Facebook’s invention React Native, is an open-source mobile application development framework that is used for iOS, Android, and Web applications. The technology came into existence in 2013, and in just a couple of years, it was ranked the fastest-growing open-source platform with over 30,000 stars on GitHub. Also a year later, Facebook and Microsoft established a partnership, thereby adding Windows support to the React Native platform.
Multiple business giants use this modern-day technology, including Uber eats, Myntra, Airbnb, Instagram, Bloomberg, Facebook Messenger, Discord, etc. What makes this technology stand apart is the feature to share codes between two different operating systems to develop an application without compromising the performance and being cost-effective at the same time.
As React Native runs on both Android and iOS, it allows both target platforms to receive an outcome from a single team of developers and codebase, which results in quicker and easier development and testing of the app.
