Reactant is a new native framework for iOS apps
Just while you thought it was secure to return to Xcode, a small Czech group referred to as Brightify has created Reactant, a framework that makes it straightforward to program iOS apps. The system is a Swift-based framework that provides live-reload of code, permitting you so as to add parts on the fly as you program.
“The Reactant architecture dictates how to structure an iOS project from start to finish. It allows testable and reusable code, that is also highly scalable. By that I mean that there’s no boilerplate that would slow down a development of a small app, but it also keeps the development on track when the app grows larger,” mentioned Tadeas Kriz. The group has posted the framework on Github and raised a small family and friends spherical to assist develop the system.
“Now, we have the architecture ready and it’s used in all of our applications. It has been developed alongside our work for clients, to make sure it fits all of our requirements before making it public. That part is Open Source and available for anyone to use.”
They are additionally constructing a UI editor to make it even simpler to format apps. It will launch in December.
“Our main advantage is that any iOS developer can use Reactant right away, since it’s all native Swift. We give developers a lot of compile time safety through Swift’s powerful type system.”
Kriz and his co-founder Michael Chlubna created Reactant as a answer to their very own growth issues. The group additionally runs Brightify, a cell app growth home, and this instrument made it simpler to construct apps in Swift with out in depth coding. Because the apps compile into native iOS code there is not one of the incompatibilities launched by hybrid frameworks like React Native. They even have pretty full documentation which makes it simpler to select up Reactant and begin programming.
I met the group at Disrupt in San Francisco and located the platform to be well-built and undoubtedly thrilling for a beginner like me. Might be price a look for your subsequent programming challenge.
