top-7-editors-for-react-native-mobile-app-development.png

React Native, a JavaScript framework and product of Facebook, is widely used by developers to build quality, native and powerful mobile applications for iOS and Android. The framework quickly rose to fame after Facebook open sourced it in 2015.

There's no doubt React Native has become a trend in custom j2ee development for cross-platform apps, but code editors are also playing an important role to fast track the development process using React Native. That said, I am bringing to light the best 7 code editors you can use for React Native to create immaculate mobile apps. However, developers must understand that the word “Best” may vary as per their specific requirements.

Top 7 Editors For React Native Mobile App Development

Nuclide has been crowned as one of the best IDEs for developing React Native applications. Nuclide comes with built-in support for React native framework and offers great support to JavaScript. Facebook brought Nuclide into existence with the motive to simplify mobile app development and transcend the limitations of other IDEs like AppCode and Eclipse.

Nuclide also offers all features of Flow, like Autocomplete, Code Diagnostics, etc, which is a big plus for developers who have to deal with React Native apps that are primarily written in Flow.

3. Sublime Text

Going by Stackoverflow's 2016 developer survey, Sublime Text is the 3rd most popular Development Environment. Sublime offers a lot of packages and themes, much similar to Atom. Sublime Text came into existence almost a decade ago, hence a lot of iterations has been made into it so far, which means it has become a seasoned player in the tech market.

These 7 code editors enable developers to create quality React Native mobile apps at utmost ease. However, as I said in the very beginning that the word “best” may vary as per specific requirements of projects, some developers may find other editors better than the ones discussed above.
