Introduction
  • Are you trying to gather information about
    cross-platform development frameworks for your
    project? Your exploits will inevitably lead you
    to React Native and Ionic. At the moment, both
    frameworks stand out from all others. However,
    one of them is better than the other in some
    ways. So, which one should be your choice?
  • If youre planning to develop a mobile app, you
    should take a look at this write-up. Choosing to
    build an app is an excellent decision,
    considering the fact that almost everyone uses
    smartphones these days. There isnt anything
    better than an app for a business to engage its
    uses and enhance their lives.
  • Studies conducted by the experts of Gartner prove
    that about 70 of all interactions on business
    software solutions will take place via mobile
    devices within this year. Then again, the
    ecosystem of mobile devices is a complicated one.
    To get your app published on both Apple App Store
    and Google Play Store, you may require two native
    development teams.

  • As you can probably guess, building applications
    for two different platforms separately will
    ultimately contribute to your expenses. Its one
    of the main reasons why app development maestros
    created cross-platform development frameworks.
    Among them, React Native and Ionic stand out from
    the rest. This topic will try to establish
    differences between the two.
  • By contemplating those differences, you can
    determine whether to hire a react native app
    development company or opt for Ionic app
    development.

The popularity factor
  • Which one of the two is more popular? Its the
    first question that comes to the minds of
    business owners attempting to get an app created
    for their entrepreneurial ventures.
  • Both frameworks receive support from a massive
    community spread throughout the world. Both
    frameworks have also won the trust and respect of
    some of the largest enterprises.
  • These business firms utilized their React Native
    and Ionic apps to accumulate massive volumes of
    customer data. Also, end-users have been using
    apps designed on these platforms for years.

  • Here are some results of popularity surveys
    conducted by market researchers in 2020.
  • Over the last few years, about 86 of all web
    developers utilized Ionic SDKs to develop apps
    extensively. On the other hand, only 16 of web
    developers chose React Native.
  • 71 of app developers have created PWAs using the
    libraries, frameworks, and tools of Ionic.
    Conversely, only 21 of React Native developers
    managed to do the same.
  • On Github, Ionic enjoys 13.3k project forkings
    and 41k Github stars. Also, Ionic has about 238
    versions. React Native has a star-count of 89.1k
    on Github with 19.8k projects forked
    consistently. Until now, React Native has
    released 346 versions.

2. The functionality factor
  • Just because React Native won the round of
    popularity doesnt mean you should go for react
    native app development services. There are a few
    other factors worth paying attention to. The next
    point of comparison is the functionality of each
    framework.
  • Dynamic Runtime of React Native
  • The creators of React Native wrote the framework
    using JavaScript. The code of JavaScript
    communicates with Android and iOS with the aid of
    a mobile JS API. This API transfers the necessary
    functions and data calls to the native platform
    API as the two remain connected by a bridge.
  • WebView Wrapper of Ionic
  • React Native depends on the Dynamic Runtime
    approach, but Ionic is all about Cordova that
    piggybacks on a WebView component or a browser
    view devoid of chrome. The component of WebView
    leverages an HTML layout engine for rendering
    HTML/CSS user interfaces.

3. The learning curve factor
  • Both frameworks have a core SDK comprising
    JavaScript, but there are differences. The
    fundamental flex layout of React Native lets
    developers obtain the necessary components with
    ease. There is one limitation, though a
    developer has to get familiarized with CSS. They
    may even need to learn Flexbox, Redux with React,
    Axios to call APIs, ES6, and more.
  • Conversely, Ionic is easy to install via npm
    commands through Cordova. The ngcordova component
    provides developers with a powerful collection of
    all services and extensions of AngularJS.
    Furthermore, Ionic even has an Ionic Academy,
    which is an online education establishment. It
    offers step-by-step courses for developers of
    various levels to ease learning.

4. The stack structure factor
  • Both frameworks have a core SDK comprising
    JavaScript, but there are differences. The
    fundamental flex layout of React Native lets
    developers obtain the necessary components with
    ease. There is one limitation, though a
    developer has to get familiarized with CSS. They
    may even need to learn Flexbox, Redux with React,
    Axios to call APIs, ES6, and more.
  • Conversely, Ionic is easy to install via npm
    commands through Cordova. The ngcordova component
    provides developers with a powerful collection of
    all services and extensions of AngularJS.
    Furthermore, Ionic even has an Ionic Academy,
    which is an online education establishment. It
    offers step-by-step courses for developers of
    various levels to ease learning.

The structure of React Native

  • You already know that React Native establishes
    communication between native and JavaScript
    components by bridging the gaps between the two
    correspondences.
  • The most attractive feature of React Native is
    that a developer wont be able to do anything
    using the JavaScript aspect. They can offload it
    to the native section of an app only. In other
    words, developers will create some parts of the
    app in React Native and the rest using
    full-fledged native components.
  • As the name of this framework has the word
    native, you may be wondering whether it can
    facilitate cross-platform development at all.
    Well, it can, but it isnt a hybrid platform per
    se. Developers cant use it to build one codebase
    thatll run on both mobile operating systems.

11
The structure of Ionic


  • The stack structure of Ionic has three different
    layers.
  • Ionic as the user interface framework
  • One of the primary functions of this framework is
    to offer UI components that dont exist in the
    web app development ecosystem. It also has a CLI
    tool to make building, creating, and launching
    Ionic apps easier.
  • Cordova as the hybrid app framework
  • Cordova delivers a web interface to work between
    a devices WebView API and native API. The main
    feature of Cordova is to cover the gap between
    the two tech stacks of Native API and WebView
    HTML.
  • Angular as the web app framework
  • Ionic depends on AngularJS to build its
    customized UI components. Furthermore, Angular
    also simplifies things for Ionic to leverage one
    of the necessary framework powers, such as MVVM,
    MVC, or MVP.

12
5. The size factor


  • If you have to evaluate cross-platform
    development frameworks like Ionic and React
    Native, you must consider the size of the
    platforms. For react native app development,
    companies like Moon Technolabs have to spare
    about 8.5 MB of space for the framework.
  • On the other hand, Ionic needs only 3.2 MB. Ionic
    is also the better platform when it comes to
    building smaller applications.

13
6. The time factor



  • Even the best developers can take almost a month
    to build the simplest applications using Ionic.
    However, the same developers need about one and a
    half months to complete their work on an app
    using React Native.
  • If you want to publish your mobile business
    solution as fast as possible, you should put your
    faith in Ionic.

14
7. The security factor
  • App security is one of the most crucial
    determinants of today. What can Ionic and React
    Native offer in terms of security?
  • Ionic encryption
  • When working on an iOS app on Ionic, developers
    can add encryption features on their devices
    using the secure storage plugin of Cordova. On
    Android, they need a screen lock or swipe system
    on the device for encryption purposes.
  • React Native encryption
  • Developers can depend on several third-party
    libraries for storing sensitive data locally.
    Some of these third-party libraries include React
    Native secure storage, React Native keychain, and
    React Native sensitive info.

15
8. Your choice
  • Several other factors require your attention if
    you hope to make an informed decision.
    Unfortunately, it isnt possible to include any
    more information in this write-up. Nevertheless,
    you should stick to react native app development
    offered by Moon Technolabs if your project
    fulfills the following criteria.
  • Your existing website or applicant works on React
    Native.
  • You need native platforms as theyre
    mission-critical to your project.
  • You have a team of developers with expertise in
    React Native.
  • You have enough funds to meet the budgetary
    requirements of an extensive process of
    development.
  • You have enough time to dedicate to React Native
    development.

16
  • Ionic should your choice if your project adheres
    to the following criteria.
  • You have an exclusive app idea and youre
    attempting to launch your startup.
  • You prioritize time over everything else.
  • You need your MVP development to raise funds and
    grow your business.
  • You and your competitor have the same idea to
    extract the most value out of the digitized
    markets of today.
  • You have a tight budget and you have to keep your
    expenses as low as possible.
  • If your app is about P2P marketplaces, video
    streaming, fitness, social media, or something
    similar, Ionic will be perfect.
  • Conversely, React Native would be the better
    choice if you hope to create a powerful solution
    with higher performance standards and
    responsiveness. Those who choose React Native
    dont have to worry about budget or time-related
    restrictions.
