All About Cross Platform Mobile Development Using React Native

In past, developers assumes that choosing a cross platform development would lead to risks.Clients as well companies wish to have an application that clearly benefited from development of a particular mobile platform. Software developers or other mobile developers has the mindset that this cross development platform is less user friendly in terms of designing and reliability. Time to time development in native cross platform changes the mindset of everyone.

Whether you are looking for building a cross platform application or go for native mobile application platform, still this is challenging as most of the entrepreneurs hesitate to choose this technology. As per market trend this technology booming everyday and have lot of value seen in cross platform apps.

The cross platform development basically works with a single piece of code , it has an advantage that it works on various multiple OS.

Below are the Types of Cross Platform Application Development:

  1. Native Cross  Platform Applications:

These native apps are taken into consideration , when you looking for any mobile development. Most of the applications we are using or running on various OS are native apps. These are written in Javascript code. Let us take an example iOS related applications usually Swift or Objective C are written in this. Java is used for Android applications and C# is used for native windows applications. React Native is the best example of cross platform application.

       2. Hybrid Cross Platform Applications:

It is considered as one of the version of native apps. Javascript , HTML and CSS used in this Hybrid platform development and running on a platform called WebView. It has an advantage over native cross platform that hybrid is quick to deal with any problem and also known as Minimum viable product especially for start ups.

Some Benefits of Cross Platform Applications

  • Cost Effective:

These apps are cheaper to develop, as only single piece of JS code used in this development easy to maintain.Development of cross platform applications can’t help with bugs as debugging takes small amount of time. Tests can be written for common code helps in saving time.

  • One Product, One Code & Multiple Platforms:

Only single set of code is used , owner wish to use that particular code on different OS with same technology.

  • Ideal for Preliminary Version:

React Native is the best choice for preliminary version as it works faster and on both platforms at same time. Owners wanted that their app is the first to be released in market before their competitors.

  • UX/UI Friendly:

Popularity of React Native !

From developer pain of view they states that “Learn Once and Apply Everywhere”. That’s why developers and companies move to this React Native cross platform development technology. React technology can be deployed both on web and mobile based applications. Its code reusability helps developers to complete/ deliver a particular project in a given span of time.React Native uses a common Javascript code for both Android or iOS. It helps developers to see their code implementation on real mobile screens and also provides debugging which takes small amount of time.

How React Works ?

In react native you could see a small difference like <view> tag in place of <div>, <image> tag instead of <img>. rest all are same and some knowledge of Java or Objective C is great. It uses a JS library hence the codebase is same as that of web applications of React. The react native library has uses its own components rest packages also available to use. The Javascript code is compiled to native one.

Future Scope of React Native Technology

React Native gaining huge popularity among developers in past recent years like React. It’s library is well accepted by developers because of having great benefits and advantages. Facebook supporting this from very beginning. This technology upgrading day by day, the updations are held regularly.

Laravel is one of the highly used, open-source modern web application framework that designs customized web applications quickly and easily.


Developers prefer Laravel over to other frameworks because of the performance, features, scalability it offer. 

It follows Model View Controller (MVC) which makes it more useful than PHP.

It attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects,

such as authentication, routing, sessions and caching. It has a unique architecture,

where it is possible for developers to create their own infrastructure that is specifically designed for their application.

Current Latest version of Laravel 5 series is 5.5.

It’s main purpose to strengthen the security , speed up the database work and creating applications much easier.As we have been using Laravel framework from past 6 years, the Questions arises how to start using Laravel with VUE JS like how to set up VUE & how to use with Laravel Framework. Let’s find out !

Before figuring it out just Discover Some Benefits of Laravel Framework

1. Caching:

Laravel supports varieties of tools , with that it provides faster caching. As certain pre-built supports already installed in Laravel apps like Redis, which in turn it will increase the memory caching.

2. Laravel Scout:

It’s an effective Laravel tool that avow full text search on modules.

Laravel and VUE Development Process

If you looking to develop an application in Laravel with VUE.  Most likely if you are using Laravel framework, then for compilation Elixir is required, if not any other HTML or CSS framework is using then webpack must be required.

It is complicated to add VUE JS related components into an application because every time you see a slight change in template, CSS or any other logic for that you need to create a gulp or refreshing is required and if the gulp is running you still need a refresh. What exactly happens when it refreshes ? After refreshing the you loose all the state of an application. Consider with Modal Pop Up, if you make a change in VUE components, then everytime you need to refresh and popup up and see the running insights. The only solution for this is use Hot Reloading plugin.

This Plugin helps to keep the state as it is and made changes to components without any page refreshing.

IS VUE JS Better than Other Javascript Frameworks ?

VUE.js is a used for building web interfaces. If it merges with some other tools also become “ Framework of Javascript”. From past years it is emerging as one of the best Javascript Framework and also replacing Angular and React in many cases.

VUE.js first released in 2014 and it has 39,933 star rating on Github.

What makes VUE JS so special ?

The advantage of this framework is that their is absence of pedigree in it. It is lightweight framework and easy to learn technology.

Features of VUE JS

  • Fairly Basic Docs
  • Two Way Data Binding Option

Now the question arises which framework is better either we go for VUE or React ? Let’s find some key points of both frameworks !

  • Looking to build apps with Templates

In VUE braces are used for data binding while directives used for adding functionality to the template where as React avoids template and uses DOM in JS.

If you come from development paradigm , then templates are very much easier to understand for newbies.

  • Simplicity comes with VUE or React ?

VUE known for its simplicity and runs from a browser and can be inserted into any line of code as like jQuery while React relies on JSX & on classes also.

  • Which is faster VUE or React ?

Both frameworks build a DOM and have their own state to deal with this process. The rendering system of VUE is faster than that of React. Now comes to page size again in this VUE is leading by minifying the current size of VUE library is only 25.6KB while in case of React the DOM size is approx 37.4KB and that of its library size 11.4KB which equals to 48.8KB

Thus, VUE is faster than React, and you get larger API with using React.

  • For Large Scale Implementation of Apps what to choose React or VUE ?

As above we discussed about Templates as it is easier to understand at first end and faster to execute with. The only disadvantage that if you want to develop large scale app then it leads to slow development. As they are likely suffers from various errors etc.

As VUE rendering function is faster as i explained in above point but the React system is more configureable and has features like shallow rendering which makes it more testable when combine with React utilities.

React is a great choice when it comes to building large scale applications , its also good in term of testability.

  • Which is more Adaptable React or VUE ?

React is mainly used for building native applications and instead of using web components it uses native components. Since VUE don’t have shallow or other functions and uses HTML templates as its core designing part as it’s difficult to use VUE as native element on the other hand React has all these features that suitable fits in all circumstances.

React is one the popular Javascript Framework library with approx 2.4M downloads per month where as VUE got 225k hits per month.

Both are open-source as React is maintained by the Facebook developers and born from Facebook while VUE is created by a single developer whose name is Evan You.

Quick Recap:-

VUE Advantages:-

1.Good Option for templates


3.Faster Render

4.Small Page Size

React Advantages:-

1.Good Fit for Large Scale Applications

2.Testable & Not Error Prones

3.More Adaptable
