First of all : what is React Native?

React Native is a mobile development framework created by Facebook that allows you to create applications for iOS and Android platforms using the JavaScript programming language.

The framework allows you to create applications that work natively on these two platforms, i.e. they use the native user interface components of each platform (buttons, lists, etc.) and offers a user experience similar to that of an application developed specifically for iOS or Android.

React Native is built around the concept of "components" which are UI elements that can be reused in different parts of the application. These components are defined using the JSX markup language, which allows JavaScript and HTML to be mixed.

React Native also uses the principle of "properties" to define the properties of a component and "state" to manage data that may change during the execution of the application.

How can I start to develop in React Native?

To develop an application with React Native, it is recommended to use an integrated development environment (IDE) such as Visual Studio Code or Android Studio. It is also possible to use developer tools such as React Native Debugger to help debug the application.

In addition to allowing to create applications for iOS and Android platforms, React Native also offers the possibility to develop web applications using the React framework. This helps create an app that works on the web as well as on mobile devices.

In summary, React Native is a very popular mobile development framework that allows to create applications for iOS and Android using JavaScript. It offers many advantages over native app building, including the ability to reuse code and the ability to develop apps for the web in addition to mobile devices.
