React Native Apps for macOS


In this course we will learn how to create modern macOS applications using react native.

In this course we will explore react-native as a framework for building macOS applications.

Unlike web based tools, react-native offers a lot of benefits when it comes to performance and the ability to leverage native functionality.

In lessons we cover setting up a scalable application architecture, connecting with native macOS APIs and exploring some workarounds.

The course comes with a lot of new techniques, code samples and detailed instructions to develop React Native apps that are truly equal to native alternatives.

If you are an experienced React Native developer, you may already know a lot of this, but you can still find useful information here.

By learning the basics of JavaScript to create our application, we will really be able to make our application take full advantage of the desktop OS.

For this course, we will create an application to track the books you have read.

If you are a JavaScript developer, you will learn a lot about native APIs.

We will use Swift to develop native functions. This is not a Swift course, so we won’t delve into the syntax, but rather make a high-level pass by providing you with the code snippets you’ll need.

If you are a macOS developer, you will get to know a lot of the native code that we use, but you will learn how to link this native code to the JavaScript environment, and learn more about the internal structure of React Native.
