The purpose of this blog is to outline a first time real world project done in React Native. We will start from a “Hello World” application all the way to publishing to the app store for both iOS and Android. A lot of this is for my benefit. I’ve been a largely inconsistent blogger largely due to it being inconvenient. With the discovery of github pages and Visual Studio code (thank you markdown preview!), I found it a lot more convenient to fire things up and do a little writing.
I hadn’t yet produced a React application (web or native), but have been studying it for the last 6 months. I leaned heavily on the tutorials produced by Max Schwarzmüller of udemy.com. Both his React 16 and Redux course and his React Native course are worth every penny. I believe they fast tracked me to success. I had not written much beyond a few screens in his tutorial before I took on the project and my client is beyond pleased with the result and it’s ahead of schedule!
A Little About Me
The Application Developed
The app will be a content delivery method for sports teams. The client currently has a website and a RESTful API that can serve up their exclusive content in the form of text and podcasts.
Without further delay, lets have a sneak look at the application in action.
This is the focal point of the app and getting to this point involved a lot of steps, which we’ll go through. Step 1 is setting up our environment which will cover in the next post. Navigation, HTTP requests, and Redux are all a part of this and will also be detailed.
