Cordova & React Native Frameworks
In this article we will explore the build performance capabilities of Cordova and React Native frameworks. We will analyze and compare the strengths and limitations of both frameworks and draw a conclusion in the end.
React Native is an open-source mobile application framework created by Facebook. It is used to develop applications for Android, iOS, Web and UWP by enabling developers to use React along with native platform capabilities.
