React Native vs Flutter

 

React Native is an open-source framework supported by Facebook and was first released on GitHub. It led to the combining of native APIs of both iOS and Android.

Flutter is backed by Google and is used to create responsive iOS and Android native apps. It is a software development kit which is meant for mobile applications. The main intention behind creating it was to build applications that have great performance and fidelity. They also made sure that the applications were compatible enough to run on all platforms. Its features are that it has a thin level of code and most of the system is implemented in the Dart. This makes it easier for developers to replace, remove or make any other required changes.  Thus, it enables the developers to have great control over it.

React Native has been very popular lately especially in the ReactJS circle and in the web community. It has been highly used by companies because it is written on JavaScript. Many companies have also switched over it.

Flutter has been gaining traction from 2017. It is now widely recognised by developers and is ardently used by them in the mobile app development industry. It has the features and the potential to go a long way.

Flutter is also an open-source application framework but what makes it different is that it works on a programming language known by the name of Dart. Dart is a programming language that is used for general purposes and it was made by Google in 2011. It is mainly used for making apps that are mission-critical and with greater quality for all the three platforms: web, iOS and Android. The features of Dart have been primarily aimed at client-side development. C++ and Java form its base. The purpose of choosing Dart was because it was appropriate for the user interface requirements. Dart bridge makes the size of the application bigger but it works faster.

Meanwhile, React Native lets you build apps with the help of JavaScript. This is the main difference between both. It can compile the dynamic code of JavaScript for native view at runtime. The app in itself has a virtual machine which runs the rest of the code.

The platforms also differ in architecture. The frameworks are also based on the MVC framework. React Native’s application architecture is known as Flux. Facebook uses Flux to build client-side web applications. In Flux, the data has a unidirectional flow or a one-sided flow. React handles the view part and Flux handles model. Dart has an architecture library. This was again inspired by refluxJS and Flux. Its unidirectional flutter flow consists of actions, stores and store watchers.

At aTeamIndia, developers use both of these frameworks interchangeably depending upon the requirements of the project. Both of them have a different set of features to cater to different requirements. So, if you are confused in choosing React Native or Flutter, you know where to go. Just convey your requirements to aTeamIndia, sit back and enjoy the show.

React Fibre and React – What We Should Know

Reactfibre

React is also popularly known as React JS. It is a JavaScript library that is mainly used for building user interfaces or UI. It is mostly maintained by the social media giant Facebook and other companies and developers that form a community. It is versatile in the sense that it can be used as a base either for a single page or for the development of a mobile application. Its optimal purpose is to record rapidly changing data in the quickest way possible. If the React applications are complex, then it will need additional libraries for the purposes of routing, interaction etc. On the other hand, React Fibre is the reimplementation of the core algorithm of React and this is an ongoing process. It completely and internally has rewritten React. Even if it is definitely a rewrite, it is also compatible backwards. With Fibre, the developers intend to improve the compatibility in areas like animation, gestures etc. The standing out feature is incremental rendering. Just as the name suggests, it is the capability to divide the rendering tasks into small portions and then spread it across many frames.

Since it is a reimplementation of the React core algorithm, it is considered a virtual stack frame. Here each stack frame will contain information that is stored in the form of a heap. Such preservation has mainly two benefits. One is that you have the complete control of the data structure and only the relevant information will be processed.

Another feature to consider is that it was not made to perform faster. Its main goal is to make the user interface and navigation as smooth as possible. Therefore, even though it might not be as fast as you expect, it brings out the best results. One of the common performance issues is scheduling. React developers have come up with many features to tackle this. Varying according to the different platforms, React makes use of renderers for displaying the user interface elements. Likewise, in React Fibre, the rendering process is divided into two parts.

Reconcile: In this phase, the work that is in progress is built and the changes will be listed.

Commit: The changes will now be performed into the DOM or native UI in this phase.

Breaking down work into chunks helps in making React more responsive to browser events but it also sets out priorities. Different priorities are given to different sets of user interface updates. Animations and other such updates are given priority while the other updates can be paused. After the greater priority ones are committed and reconciled, the lower priority ones go through the same process. Thus, React Fibre has a built-in scheduling program, small-sized bundles and code base that is better and more approachable. It also has great features to handle any errors. Because of flow typing, there are greater error boundaries.
