We are discussing about two frameworks in this article and that two frameworks are exquisitely maintained top ranks for some time now and most important they are using very much in 2021, namely react native and flutter. So, the react native is creation of Facebook and which was made open-source in 2015. And, the flutter is released in 2017 and it is created by google. Flutter is portable User Interface toolkit for building natively arrange the apps across mobile, web and desktop from a single codebase. And, react native framework for building native application using react.

  1. Programming language: In programming language react native are used to JavaScript it means it is easier for web developers to transition quickly to react native for mobile app development as set against to Dart.
    But, the flutter is whole new language and the dart is was not used much in the flutter and it is based on Java due to conceptual object oriented support. Also, it has some easy documentation to get you started.
  2. Install Process: Installation Process of react native is easy, you can be installed node package manager (npm) while using MacOS.
    Flutter supports binary download from GitHub for particular platform. In case of MacOS after download the file needs to added as PATH variable.
  3. User Interface: Flutter apps always up-to-date operating system as older version and it also look good. They have only one codebase and the apps look and behave similar across IOS and Android they can imitate the platform design itself.
    React native use native components under the hood should give you confidence after any Operating system UI update your apps component will be immediately improve as well. React native depend heavily on third-party libraries to access most of the native modules.
  4. Sharing Code: Flutter can use same codebase to ship native apps to operating system: IOS, Android, MacOS ,Linux and windows . Flutter can be embedded in Cars, TV and smart home appliances. Existing mobile app allowing flutter apps to be run on desktop.
    React native share code to IOS and Android but there are selected libraries that allow to use the same code to build IOS, Android, web and Window 10 apps. They are allow to developer focus on writing code for particular platform without having any consider similarity with another one.

So, there are so many types of differences in flutter and react native and these are some of the conclusion that come across and sure they are many more but eventually it is all comes down to what you as a developer actually prefer at the end of the day.

React native is open source mobile application framework created by Facebook and community. React native are written in objective-c,Java,C++ and python. Different kinds of people are use react native and people are advanced ios developer to they have react beginners and those type of people who get started programming for the first time in their career.

Docs are written for all learners, no matter their experience level or background. It’s based on react Facebook JavaScript library for building user interface. Web developers can now write mobile application that look and feel truly “native”.

React native make it easy to simultaneously developed for both android and ios. Your application will render using real mobile UI components not web views and we will look any other mobile application. React native app can access platform feature like phone, camera or user location. Besides shared react components wrap existing code and interact with native APIs via UI paradigm and JavaScript. You can use react developer tools to debug the react component hierarchy.

React Native built in flow and it will support both Typescript and flow by default. Type Script is language which extends JavaScript by add type definitions. React native application needs to access a native platform. API that is not available by default in JS. Native module system are expose instance of objective-C/C++ classes to JS as JS object and thereby allow to execute arbitrary native code from within JS.

The largest risk in react native is maturity, as the project still relatively young. Android support released in September 2015 and ios support released in march 2015. Some feature of Android and IOS still are not supported the community is still discovering best practices. React native is still young and the usual caution that go along with working new technology are apply here.
