Ionic Vs. React Native

Ionic Vs. React Native

React Native – Engineered with JavaScript and React.JS

Facebook used JavaScript – one of the dominant and high-level dynamic programming languages and merged it with the benefits of React.JS (Web Framework) to develop React Native. Definitely an intelligent move. According to the latest Stack Overflow Survey, about 66.7 percent of developers are already using JavaScript in their work. Thus, it won’t be troublesome to find a developer for developing React Native Apps as these developers will be either skilled to start coding or will have a shorter learning curve.

One of the strongest points making React Native the widely used and widely preferred cross-platform app development framework is because it allows developers to write modules in Objective-C, Swift, or Java Language whenever they need. Additionally, due to the native modules and libraries in React Native Apps, it becomes easier to handle computationally heavy programs like image editing or video processing.

Ionic – Superset of JavaScript – TypeScript

The Ionic framework is developed using HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript for writing and running the application; however, it requires a Cordova wrapper to access the native features and native platform controllers. The core of the Ionic framework is based on AngularJS a JavaScript Framework and is written with SaaS in mind.

The main programing language of Ionic is TypeScript – recognized as a superset of JavaScript complied to the plain JavaScript. The quality of the code in Ionic is dramatically increased due to its inbuilt capability to identify and mitigate errors at the time of writing code. Remember, it is optional to use TypeScript as you are able to build the application using simple JavaScript.
