|I'm interested in the opinion of React Native from companies who chose to build their mobile apps with React Native and have been doing so for at least a year. RN passes the first-week smell test really well. How has it held up for you in production? How has it held up for dev teams of ~10 or more? Pros and cons?|
I run a mobile team of ~30 folks. In 2015 we experimented with RN for 3 months before deciding that it was not a good fit for us. I'm interested in stories from the alternate reality where we took the react-native path instead.
I'm NOT particularly interested in stories about single devs making prototypes for a weekend. React Native has a delightful experience for this use-case, but it does not directly transfer to being a good experience for a larger team with serious product goals.
