Two years after the 2015 React.JS release, Facebook created React Native. While the React.JS library is built for use in creating web interfaces, React Native is a hybrid app-development framework for iOS and Android platforms. A promising aspect of React Native is that it inherits ReactJS principles and syntax.
All technical differences between them are caused by platform aims.
While ReactJS uses Virtual DOM to render browser code, React Native uses native APIs as a bridge to render components on mobile.
React Native doesn’t use HTML. Hence developers who have worked with React.JS before, you’ll have to get familiar with the React Native syntax.
Since React Native doesn’t use Cascaded Style Sheets (CSS), standard CSS-features like animation only run with special React Native APIs.
Focused wholly on the ‘View’ of MVC, which represents the User Interaction development capabilities of React.JS.
While other frameworks such as Angular.JS, Ember.JS and Backbone.JS are referred to as client-side MVC frameworks React.JS is employed only to manage User Interaction.
Enabled with a Virtual DOM feature.
React is the fastest of the bunch. This framework tracks differences in his in-memory cache and use these differences to update the DOM in browser, which is what gives him the boost.
Data Binding and JSX Enabled
The team who built React.JS increased the speed of updates by using virtual ‘document object model’ (DOM). React.JS is different from related frameworks that work with the Real DOM, as it uses its abstract copy, the Virtual DOM. This helps in updating small changes made by a user, without impacting other parts of the application interface. This is attributed to components isolation and a special data structure in the React.JS library.
An added advantage that Facebook introduced with React.JS was to provide developers with the ability to reuse code components of a different level anytime, which is vital in saving time for Pace Wisdom developers, during application development.
Managing updates is convenient for developers who build interfaces with React.JS owing to the isolation of components and this indicates that changing one component will not affect other components. This allows Pace Wisdom developers to reuse components which makes programming phase accurate and stress-free for developers.
