3 things you love and 3 things you hate about React Native?

Three things I like

  1. Development speed is faster than any other way to build mobile apps, and this is so important when building new stuff.
  2. Flexbox was a good choice for layout I think. It's pretty intuitive compared to pre-Flexbox CSS.
  3. Many people are already familiar with React, and so RN is very accessible for lots of people.

Three things I don't like

  1. Takes a long time to build the initial package
  2. Wish starting up JS VM and loading initial JS was faster
  3. Wish debugging were better. Doing debugging by running your JS off-device inside your web browser is just kind of wacky.
