What is React Native?
React Native vs Native?
So, does that mean Native isn't as good compared to React Native? Well no, as React's main benefit is the flexibility between iOS and Android, if a client want's an application only for a specific OS, than using a standard Native would be a better option. The main reason is because Native supports all APIs, there's a larger community, and it's easier to detect errors.
What is React Suspense and why is it good?
React Suspense is a way for components to suspend rendering while they load data from a cache. It's good for slow connections, as it gives a developer control over when and where to show certain items on a browser.
What's even better is that, it doesn't destroy the previous view while the suspense is activated. The only downside to this is the difficulty on trying to use React Suspense. This is because it needs to fake a back end API to interact with.
So is React worth it?
React Native is definitely something to look out for in the future, as it is cross platform compatible and easy to learn if a developer is already familiar with React. Definitely there are differences between native development compared to it's counterpart, but it can change the development process within companies as it saves time.
