react native mobile app framework gets rearchitected

React Native Framework, popularly known as authentic facebook’s development framework, is all set to undergo the complete modification and rebuild to improve its efficiency and integration capability.

 

Having JavaScript and the UI library in the main use case, the framework will get a complete rewrite of many of its internals. With most of the changes at the internal side, the existing apps based on React Native will continue to function with slight or complete no update.

 

The complete modification of the React Native framework will result in making light weight and more apt for the existing apps. Along with these,

Major changes, we will see

 

  • The mega changes in the threading model. It will push the high priority work on the main and will keep the low priority work off to it, so that task can be completed in an ideal fashion.
  • To ease the asynchronous data accessing, async rendering abilities will be added to the system enabling several rendering priorities.
  • React Native is just React, but for Mobile App Development. React Native framework will be a lot quicker and lighter in weight through bridge simplification. The dialogue between native and JavaScript will be a lot better and influential. This will help in building debug tools.

 

The facebook believes that the main concern is with the integration abilities of the current framework as it does not support gesture control for key components such as – UIcollection view. With this rewrite, such problems will be settled forever. The user will have better experience as native applications will perform better and smoother.

 

Facebook has also showed interest in further slimming down the framework, so that it can be a better fit for the JavaScript ecosystem. However, this changes will only come to the floor after the successful completion of the first rewrite.

 

Facebook admits that the existing principles of React Native Framework does not go well with creating new features, which is actually not a good sign for the framework. The single asynchronous bridge between native and Java has already made it difficult to have an integration between the native APIs and JavaScript logic.

 

This also create problem in queuing up the native calls. However, it firmly believes that such hacks will be tackled by the rewrite and further they will look towards how effectively works. Based on the response, the planning for the further updates will take place.

 

All and all, it is a good news for the React Native framework and obviously, the Facebook.
