But, in the current market, it is a real tough challenge to decide the best available framework. In this blog, we are going to focus on two frameworks, which are in talk nowadays: React Native and Native Script.
But before getting our heads into it. What is a native or hybrid application? What exactly does that mean?
The applications that are written in one language for a particular platform are Native applications. For example, iOS apps are written in swift or Android apps written in Java or Windows application written in C/C++.
The word “native” suggests the application being developed in its habitat, which results in the application being more robust, more efficient, and being more reliable.
But if you have an application that requires to be on all the platforms. Imagine the amount of rework to be done. As the languages are different, you cannot reuse any piece of code.
This is a major drawback of Native Applications.
The applications that are not developed in the natural habitat are hybrid applications as such application are written in cross-platform languages like, js and c#.
The development of a hybrid application is much faster and simpler. It uses various plugins for device specific interactions. The development is much faster as you are required to write just one code for different platforms.
The drawback of developing a hybrid application is:
- The speed of the application
- Can face challenges for specific interaction with the device
Now before getting to the war zone. First, let us see what React Native and Native Script do:
