What's inside this Episode?

As the content of this episode revolves around Open Source, we begin by explaining how Callstack pays it forward to the community with involvement in OSS projects.

Then, we move on to the first topic: RFC for the proposal for natively supporting Expo Config Plugins by React Native core. This proposal has been released as part of our R&D program. The discussion around it is getting heated, so you should check it out!

Next up, we throw a spotlight on super apps and our approach to building them. We mention our freshly released pillar page dedicated to Super Apps, which includes a bunch of helpful technical & business resources.

Moving on, we talk about the latest updates to Re.Pack, including deal-breaking code signing and remote assets. If you’d like to dive deep into these new features, register for “Super app development made easy with Re.Pack” webinar held on May 9.

Last but not least, we have a segment on React Native Paper, where we discuss the latest developments and plans for future versions. We are currently on version 5 of RN Paper and version 3 of Material Design. Our ongoing work includes fixing bugs and extending our dynamic color schemes generator. We also share some spoilers for version 6 of RN Paper.

Enjoy the talk!
