Hello World With React Native

React Native allows you to develop an application for Android and iOS by writting single code. It is an open source framework developed by Facebook.

Learn once, write anywhere: Build mobile apps with React.

You can use ReactJS to write a code for React Native and it will build an application for Android and iOS. It is very fast when compare to other cross platform frameworks.

Main advantage of using React Native is, you can even use your native code in ReactJS.

With React Native you don’t need to recompile your application everytime you made some changes in code, you can just refresh it to see the changes(For android simulator you can use ‘two times R’ and For iOS it will be ‘CMD + R’) Continue Reading

Firebase Realtime Database In Android

Welcome to another post of Firebase series. We have already discussed about Firebase Remote Config, Firebase Authentication and Firebase Crash Report. Today we are going to discuss about Firebase Realtime Database.

As an android developer we always have a feeling that if we need to sync data between more number of users we need :

  • Webservices/API
  • MySQL database
  • Some domain

Authentication is the process to provide uniqueness to each user of your application. It will be the identity of particular user.

If your application requires user’s data to be securely stored, you need to authenticate each and every user.

In earlier days we need to have some back-end service developed either in PHP, Java or some other platform. We need some web developer to do that kind of things.

Firebase Authentication provides a way to directly authenticate a user via email and password and store that user to cloud.

Firebase Authentication also support social media authentication like G+, Facebook, Twitter, Github. It means now its a easy task to perform login with facebook or login with g+ task.

Using Firebase Remote Config in Android

Firebase Remote Config is a cloud service provided by Firebase.

In previous article Getting Started With Firebase Android we have seen what are the features Firebase is providing to improve app performance and usability.

Firebase Remote config is the best feature from developer point of view, it allows you to perform some dynamic operation without updating the build. End user will get the latest changes without updating application to new version.

You can use Firebase Remote config to provide promotional offer banners to user without updating new build.
