    Routing and navigation for your React Native apps

    As many mobile apps won't be made up of a single screen, managing multiple screens and transitioning between them is, therefore, an integral part of mobile development. The navigation solution in React native is provided by the React Native community. The navigation mechanism is not in-built as many would have expected. The recommended third-party library is the react-navigation library. It is an easy-to-use, cross-platform compatible, and easily customizable library that provides routing in both expo and React Native applications.

  • React

    A declarative, efficient, and flexible JavaScript library for building user interfaces.

    In 2015, React Native was launched by Facebook as the JavaScript framework to build mobile apps for both iOS and Android. It uses the same concepts and ideas from React. React Native allows you to create mobile apps for both iOS and Android with a single code base. This is known as the Hybrid Mobile development.

  • Zigi

    The context switching struggle is real. Zigi makes context switching a thing of the past. It monitors Jira and GitHub updates, pings you when PRs need approval and lets you take fast actions - all directly from Slack!

  • Flutter

    Flutter makes it easy and fast to build beautiful apps for mobile and beyond

    Another tool that is being used for hybrid mobile development like React Native is Flutter, an open-source framework by Google built with Dart programming language.
