* STYLESHEET MODULE OR  INLINE STYLES

*"css like"  name/value

* Layout Flexbox

// 1. Platform
Install Xcode // Android SDK
brew install node
brew install watchman

// 2. React Native CLI
npm install -g react-native-cli

// 3. Creating and Running
react-native init AwesomeProject
cd AwesomeProject
react-native run-ios // run-android

Setup

* single platform

#teamios

#teamandroid

almost

no code reuse

very

expensive

shared skills

Universal js WEb team

more than 85% shared code

platform specific code

import { Platform, StyleSheet } from 'react-native';

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  height: (Platform.OS === 'ios') ? 200 : 100,
});
// ...
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    ...Platform.select({
      ios: { backgroundColor: 'red' },
      android: { backgroundColor: 'blue' },
    }),
  },
});
By Platform module

platform specific code

// |- BigButton.ios.js
// |- BigButton.android.js

const BigButton = require('./BigButton');

// React Native will automatically pick up
// the right file based on the running platform.
