Abstract

The mobile web is continuously growing in popularity. Yet, mobile apps are preferred to mobile websites. Traditional app development for native platforms requires big resource investments. Thus, solutions that promise cross-platform development are of particular interest to many organizations. This thesis takes a closer look at one of these solutions, namely React Native by Facebook. To evaluate the performance, an example app is developed both for the Android and iOS platforms, using both native technology as well React Native. Using a set of benchmarked metrics as well as considering the developer experience, we’ll conclude whether React Native can be a viable solution for cross-platform app development.
