React Native in 2024: What’s New and Exciting?

React Native is a mobile application development framework built by Facebook; it helps developers to create mobile applications for android and iOS using JavaScript and React. Since it started in 2015 up to the present, it has revolutionize the concept of mobile app development since it is capable of developing great apps in both IOS and android from a single source code. Thus, in 2024, React Native remains relevant and evolves, adopting new trends and becoming even better. Here are some of the most fascinating and up-to-date inventions in the React Native platform this year.

1. Speed Boost with Hermes

React Native has its own JavaScript called Hermes. It is intended to help your apps to launch and operate even faster by decreasing the memory consumption on devices with low memory. Hermes has lately been improved for 2024 to perform even better as a carrier and as such, the choice of developers who would want their apps to be as fast as Hermes.

2. New and Improved Architecture

New architecture of React Native is emerging, making developers have more control and capabilities. Key components of this architecture include:

Fabric: It improves the process of rendering.
TurboModules: Gives easier and quicker way to access of native modules.
JSI (JavaScript Interface): Introduces a new and more performant JavaScript runtime.
These are improvements that make the applications built with React Native to perform better and are easy to maintain.

3. Embracing TypeScript

Recently, there are more and more signs that the developers of React Native applications begin to use TypeScript, which differs from JavaScript by the presence of static types. You get to spot the mistakes early enough hence making the code more efficient to use and a lot easier to debug. As of the year 2024 developers are more inclined to adopt TypeScript since the number of libraries and tools that should be applied is considerably larger.

4. Exciting Expo Updates

Expo is a feature that acts as an upgrade in the creation of React Native projects. New updates to Expo SDK have improvements in features, higher performance, and enhanced tools so that exp has become working and managing react native applications without interfacing with native code simpler than ever.

5. Better Developer Tools

Good tools help a developer to work effectively; besides, the React Native is filled with effective tools. In 2024, the tools like Flipper, Reactotron, and React Native Debugger are improved in enhancing the debugging, profiling, and performance of the application to help the developers in identifying the problem easily.

6. Focus on Accessibility

Accessibility of apps for everyone is crucial and React Native has not been so bad on this front. By having enhanced opportunities for accessibility APIs, having a solution for better screen reader support, and having detailed documentation in this matter, it means that everyone producing apps can create at least applications that would be rather suitable to use for several types of disabled people.

7. Growing Community and Ecosystem

The usage of React Native is increasing day by day and the community is expanding by having more and more meetups, conferences and Online forums. Thus, the active community is very beneficial for developers to work together, exchange the relevant information and enhance the framework.

8. AI Machine Learning Adoption

Growing usage of AI and machine learning in mobile applications is a trend that React Native is not left behind from. There are libraries such as TensorFlow. js and ONNX. js, that can help to add AI & ML into React Native App and develop intelligent based application.

React Native remains the widely-used and highly versatile tool for constructing mobile applications. New to 2024 are performance enhancements, new architecture, TypeScript integration, Expo improvement, better developer tools, shift to web accessibility, growing community, and AI/ML; all these make it a perfect platform for developing top-notch cross-platform apps.
