They started with iOS and when Android release was ready, took them only 2 days to build.
However, they immediately stopped after identifying various issues such as poor performance of touch events and lack of 64-bit support .
Though they thought React Native was ideally for iOS.
Used storybook to quickly render "dumb" components that don't manage any state internally with mock props. By leveraging the same tooling, they could quickly follow the web team who originally adopted storybook. Along with hot reloading, storybook dramatically accelerates their UI development cycle.
Designers can even easily tweak styling directly in storybook.
A few days ago, we were able to quickly deploy a post-release fix for cameras and skip the approval process. We can’t even begin to count how many OTAs we’ve shipped. Being allowed more room for mistakes, engineers can ship often with confidence and avoid coordination, which unblocks everyone.
Immature long lists have been a well known issue since day one, using for chat view. Alternatively, they use
UITableView for smooth scrolling performance and dynamic cell heights.
This is the only view which was implemented on native, which means the hundreds of other of React Native components are provided at 60 fps.
Facebook is solving this problem by re-architecting the threading model :
After various attempts at solutions like
InputAccessoryView , we eventually figured out a way to "portal" the React Native component into native iOS views hierarchy and therefore manage high-priority keyboard updates synchronously in native. We will detail this more in a later blog post.
Fortunately, Facebook documented unbundling to only load necessary portions of the bundle for startup and progressively load more as needed via their packager.
React Native is a great framework that bridges the gap between web and mobile. At Discord it has brought us incredibly efficiency. It allows us to write reusable code, learn from each other, and move fast with a two person team.
Although there are real pain points and challenges, the overall gains significantly outweigh the costs which motivates us to keep investing in the platform.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
