Introducing Create React Native App

Today we’re announcing Create React Native App: a new tool that makes it significantly easier to get started with a React Native project! It’s heavily inspired by the design of Create React App and is the product of a collaboration between Facebook and Expo (formerly Exponent).Many developers struggle with installing and configuring React Native’s current native build dependencies, especially for Android. With Create React Native App, there’s no need to use Xcode or Android Studio, and you can develop for your iOS device using Linux or Windows. This is accomplished using the Expo app, which loads and runs CRNA projects written in pure JavaScript without compiling any native code.Try creating a new project (replace with suitable yarn commands if you have it installed):$ npm i -g create-react-native-app
$ create-react-native-app my-project
$ cd my-project
$ npm startThis will start the React Native packager and print a QR code. Open it in the Expo app
