React Native Notes

Why web-view is bad? Less performent compared to native and native-like technologies Does not follow OS’s UI design pattern. Same design in both android and iOS Why React Native Big community.

And invested by Shopify, Microsoft (despite having Xamarin) etc Cross-Platform. Write code once, and run it in three platform (Android, Web and iOS) React Native can’t beat Native App’s performence To understand this, we first gotta understand how React Native works internally.

Generator Functions in JavaScript (with real-world examples)

Before I start writing anything, here’s a discloser: I knew about generator functions since a long time, but did not really had a chance to use them. In this blogpost, I will demonstrate implementation of generator functions in real-world scenerios. Generator Function Before we begin, let’s quickly revise what generator functions are.

At the time of writing this, the constructor would return an instance which contains a method AbortController.
