The backend of the application encompasses all the things that are happening “behind the scenes”. It is a part of the application that cannot be accessed directly by the end-user. The parts of the application that the user can interact with and the way that the app is communicating with the server-side are called the frontend or client-side of the application. There are many technologies that may be used in the development process to ensure that the business solution will have all the required features.
What is ReactJS?
React Native – what you need to know
The most important thing you need to know about it is that it does not render WebViews in the code. Instead, it runs on native views and components. React Native is used by a large group of developers. Choosing React could contribute to considerable time and money savings in the development process. Applications built with React are also characterized by the great performance
- Node.js modules enable developers to bundle the React application into a single file.
- Some components of the React DOM have been designed specifically to work with Node. That makes server-side rendering much smoother.
Choosing to work with React for frontend and Node for backend is a good idea when you are trying to create a web application which will need to handle multiple simultaneous requests. Node can also be the right technology for building apps that will process data in real time. It is also a good combination for developing SPAs.
MERN for end-to-end web app development
React Native and Django
React Native – the framework for mobile app development – can be used together with Django – a high-level Python-based framework for backend development. Just like React, it is open-source and free to use for anyone. If you decide on Python it is highly possible that you will be able to develop an application at a moderate cost. This programming language is nowadays quite popular. The main advantage of Django is scalability – it is used for building both small projects and comprehensive, complex solutions capable of handling heavy traffic and large volumes of data. It may be used for building cross-platform applications in a short time as well.
So why are React Native and Django a good pairing for app development? Django is supported by a large community, just as React, and they have both been used by the largest companies on the market. Django may be applied for mobile as well as for web development regardless of the size of the project. It is a good choice if you wish to deploy your product quickly, and – what is almost as important as tech stuff – Python developers’ salaries may not be as high as the salaries of developers specializing in Java or Node. Would you like to put your money on React Native? Django may be one of the best choices for server-side development.
