  • Employ open source third-party plugins to create React Native apps

Who this book is for

If you're a JavaScript developer looking for a practical guide for developing feature-rich mobile apps using React Native, this book is for you. Though not necessary, some experience of working with React will help you understand the React Native concepts covered in this book easily.

While React Native development can be done on a Windows machine, certain aspects, such as running your apps on iOS devices and in the iOS simulator, or editing native code with Xcode, can only be done with a Mac.
