React Native: A Note on Rearchitectural Revitalization in 2021

Rearchitectural Revitalization is an architectural framework developed by Facebook.

The cross-platform mobile development framework was announced at React.js conf 2015. Since then, React Native has come a long way in which the programming language was extensively used by developers to unleash their skill sets into the world of mobile development.

Facebook launched the React Native with a vision of transforming the user interface development process with its core set of cross-platform UI primitives, and its popular declarative rendering pattern. With its immense success and name, React Native became the13th most popular open-source project on Github.

React Native works on the principle of keeping the User Interface(UI) components in the native block and the business logic in the JavaScript block. With a user request, the UI block detects the change and sends it to the JavaScript block. The request is processed there and is sent back to the UI block.

To infuse new life into the mobile architectural framework, Facebook is restructuring the React Native to make it a more flexible and better-integrated framework with the native infrastructures in the Hybrid JavaScript/Native apps.

Sophie Alpert, Engineering Manager at Facebook, mentioned in a blog post named State of React 2018,

The new move from Facebook will be a surprise for many of the developers as they must be keeping a close eye on the final outcome of the React Native. Before this, the changes that developers appreciated was during the transition to React Fiber.

The new architectural change promises to revolutionize React Native into a much lighter architectural framework; much like Flutter.

Following are the major changes that will accompany React native:

  • Upgraded threading model: From now onwards, JavaScript can be called on any thread for high-priority updates while low-priority work can be taken down off the main thread.

  • Async rendering ability: This will rationalize asynchronous data handling and enable multiple rendering priorities.

  • Lighter and faster bridge: Direct calls between native and JavaScript are more efficient and will make it easier to build debugging tools like cross-language stack traces.

Facebook also hinted at making the React Native platform more slimmer so that it fits better with the JavaScript ecosystem. This will be done by making the VM and bundler swappable.

There is no doubt about the potential that React Native holds, as this cross-platform framework opened new horizons of mobile development. The new changes promise to deliver some added benefits to the developers. But it will be compelling enough to watch out for the expansion of React Native in the mobile development marketplace.

After getting the mass request for enhanced documentation, Facebook may also come up with thorough documentation in the near future. Though the social media giant didn’t comment on this, still we hope to see it soon.
