Implement new cross-platform React Native features to multiple native apps only once - they will work on all the platforms.
The stages of the process:
Two native versions of the same app (Android and iOS) work separately.
No code shared. There are two separate codebases and teams.
The feature created with React Native is being injected into both apps at the same time working side by side with the native code. No need to rewrite the entire native application to start sharing the code.
The common cross-platform feature is developed and maintained by a single team. There’s no longer a large panel of experts involved.
Transform multiple native apps into one, cross-platform React Native solution gradually, feature by feature. Without rewriting the app from scratch.
Integrate new components into a working app and replace its existing native pieces one by one.
The stages of the process:
Two native versions of the same app work separately.
Subsequent elements of these apps are being gradually rewritten with React Native and some pieces of native code.
Two native versions of one app become one cross-platform app that can be developed and maintained by one team.
A common cross-platform React Native feature works the same on all platforms without differences in performance.
The stages of the process:
A specific feature doesn’t work the same on two native versions of one app.
By transforming this feature to React Native, it becomes a common cross-platform element of two native apps.
Despite the different platforms (Android, iOS, etc.), the feature works the same on each of them.
Write code once and run it everywhere. While React Native makes the features work properly on every platform, you can focus on improving the product.
Don’t disappoint your users with missing or inconsistent platform-specific features. Integrate and launch cross-platform features into multiple native apps at the same time.
Instead of writing a new app from scratch, incrementally replace platform-specific features with cross-platform ones. Validate the approach and nail out the technical details before going all in.
The advantages of Brownfield software development
Hire one team for Android and iOS and reuse native code to reduce costs up to 50%
Provide your customers with inclusive apps that work the same on every platform
Add features and updates without going through the app store update cycle
Learn more about React Native Integration with Brownfield development from our podcast episode.
This episode explores developing apps with React Native the brownfield way. It also provides details on React Native brownfield library.
We talk a lot about moving from native apps to React Native apps that work on every platform. But how is the React Native integration better from your current native solutions?
Once built, React Native apps can work on iOS, Android, Windows, tvOS, and more
Interfaces are composed of smaller building blocks, which reduces the code duplication
Less coding means less time needed to launch an app
More and more companies decide to use Brownfield development in their apps. Check out how they benefit from integrating React Native in existing applications.
A highly performant cross-platform application that shares the components across the stack
Meeting a tight deadline for the project due to applying a time-efficient technology
Improved navigation for both Android and iOS.
Native code can be reused in React Native keeping a native feeling of the application on every platform.
Everything is in one repository with the React Native version in sync.
Learn more about about the benefits and use cases of Brownfield software development by visiting our blog and reading below articles:
The library contains our best practices and tools that we pick when adding React Native to existing projects.
Currently, we are working on a new version of the library in order to reduce the steps needed to set up React Native in a Brownfield environment to a bare minimum.
To stay on top of the updates,
be sure you watch the repository on Github.
We offer flexible solutions adjusted to your needs. Our process is crafted to fit small and enterprise clients.
We join your team, dive into your project and tell you what we can do together. Our partnership model of collaboration can be broken down into six steps:
How it looks in practice
We set up an initial call to understand your application and learn about the issues you have.
Based on the initial call, we prepare a proposal and assign you a developer that best suits your needs in terms of skills and knowledge.
We become your team members to learn everything about your project and organization. We join your meetings, chat with your programmers to look at the project from your perspective.
We cooperate with your developers on your project and share our knowledge with them at the same time.
At the end of the first month, we present you a report with our recommendations based on the research described in Step 3.You decide if you want to continue the cooperation or implement what we recommend yourself.
Once you decide to continue the cooperation, we will implement the recommendations and support your further efforts. We will be happy to guide you through your next steps. You can always count on our expertise.
