We've now used all that knowledge to create the same experience for front-end developers and front-end-frameworks. We made it super easy to get up and running with React Native and Stream.

Creating timelines with React Native and the Stream API

Using React Native it’s super easy to make a cross platform app. Now with our components it’s super easy to build a social media network app including timelines and newsfeeds in just a couple of steps.

With React Native, you don't build a "mobile web app", an "HTML5 app", or a "hybrid app". You build a real mobile app that's indistinguishable from an app built using Objective-C or Java. React Native uses the same fundamental UI building blocks as regular iOS and Android apps. You just put those building blocks together using JavaScript and React.

Fast development

React.js is the leading front-end Javascript framework that let’s you build reactive applications that are scalable. With React Native front-end web developers are now able to code native cross platform apps without jumping through hoops to learn a new language, at it’s core it’s all JavaScript.


Because React Native is just Javascript you can use any Javascript library you want. From Lodash to the most obscure package. This makes developing apps with React Native super quick.
