Create React Native App

React Conf is back this year and so are some new exciting announcements. News is out that Create React Native App is now officially out.

If you used CRA before then you will already know that this will let you create a bootstrapped app with some simple commands.

$ npm i -g create-react-native-app
$ create-react-native-app my-project
$ cd my-project
$ npm start

This will let you develop pure JavaScript applications, if you then will need to wrap native libraries then you can run npm run eject and react-native link as you would normally do after a react-native init.
