Abstract

We’ve been using React Native in production for a while now, and thought we’d share our experience, so that you too can benefit from the plethora of awesome features that it adds. It has completely changed the way we do mobile development at Myntra.

Outline

React Native enables you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms using a consistent developer experience based on JavaScript. The focus of React Native is on developer efficiency across all the platforms you care about — learn once, write anywhere. - from the react native website

React Native for Android was announced about a year ago, and there has been a lot of speculation over using it with large apps.
We’ve been using React Native in our apps that reach millions of users, for quite sometime now, and we wanted to share our experience with you, so that you too can take that leap of faith and reap the benefits that we did.

Benefits that we reaped

  • Increased developer efficiency
  • Faster release cycles
  • More developers chipping in. All front end devs, can now do mobile… Yeah!
  • Instant Refresh
  • Simpler Code

and…

  • Share code between Android and iOS
  • Near instant release cycles

In the talk I will focus on our journey in taking React Native to production and talk about the benefits we reaped, some pitfalls/caveats that we faced, etc.
