Hi everyone!

This week we have many great React articles and a few interesting releases. It seems that React is constantly being criticized, but overall, the arguments are always the same and many of them seems a bit outdated, and never acknowledging what React does better than other solutions.

The React Native world is taken over by the official launch of Vision Pro!

We are trying something new this week, with a very first Twitter thread dedicated to React Native. Let us know if you like it.

The newsletter will be on a break next week. We'll be back the 21th of February πŸ‘‹.

I'd also like to ask you a small favor: can you reply to this e-mail with a simple "hello" or a comment? This helps increase our email deliverability. Thanks!

      Announcing React Native for Apple Vision Pro

      Announcing React Native for Apple Vision Pro

      Last week, Apple released their Apple Vision Pro, and at least parts of the React Native community are excited about a new platform for which they’ll be able to build experiences with their favorite framework. There are two different approaches (🐦 side-by-side comparison) to bring React Native onto visionPro:

      • Similar to how you can run an iOS app on macOS you can check a box in App Store Connect and enable your app to run on visionOS β€œas is,” using compatibility mode. Check out how 🐦 Evan Bacon provisions, builds, and installs an Expo app on visionPro in under 10 minutes. Apps in compatibility mode don’t take advantage of the β€œspatial computing” capabilities of visionOS though, they’re merely an iPad screen shown in the room.

      • To build apps that are truly optimized for this new world, additional native capabilities need to be adapted. And that is exactly what this new visionOS platform is doing, driven by Oskar KwaΕ›niewski and brought to us by Callstack.

      It’s early days, but it's super exciting to see RN embrace a new platform so quickly! The very first React Native visionOS app Spacial Noise is already available on the App Store.
