React Native pain points

We asked members of the React Native community to share their opinions about the results

Besides well-known headaches with upgrades and debugging, the developers highlighted a huge reliance on community libraries, many of which got abandoned over the years. Let's be honest - creating (and maintaining) a library requiring expertise in 3+ languages and having knowledge of both iOS and Android APIs isn't easy.

Futhermore, the never-ending changes in the mobile platforms forces continuous maintenance of native modules. New architecture won't make it any easier as it is making bridge-based packages obsolete. Seeing so many responses and passionate feedback it's clear that people want React Native to succeed. In the near future, I would love to see Expo Modules API helping greatly in the development of native modules.
