What is the difference between a react-native’s boilerplate “Welcome” app and this “Industry standard” app?

I am sure, here you’ll find answer to this question. Then I’ll take you along the journey how to create that industry standard app which will be customer acceptable and ready for deployment.


Infrastructure & environment setup (React native setup)
setup issues like unable to load script, metro server running, etc.
App name (display name) with space,
Bundle identifier update,
App/Launcher icon,
Splash screen


The main reason is, the getting started app you…

If you like the story, buy me a coffee!

This story will cover all the aspects of a react js web app architecture. If you are creating a new responsive web application using react JS, then follow along.
Our app architecture includes various features. A quick list of few aspects that we will cover is as per fig-1 above and fig-2 below.

This story will cover all the aspects of a cross-platform react-native framework based app’s architecture. This can be used for creating a boilerplate for creating your next awesome cross-platform mobile app.

I’ve also written a story for Industry standard React-Native App setup.

NOTE: For versions of react and other libraries, please refer before and after screenshots of “package.json”.

If you are creating a new application then, the prerequisite will be to create a react-native app using react-native-cli. Please refer to “https://reactnative.dev/docs/environment-setup” for steps to create a basic react native app and run it on emulator/device.

Overview of app architecture…

(redux-persist with redux-toolkit in react)

SUMMARY of this Story

  1. React native counter application. (Steps will be exactly the same for a react JS web app.)
  2. Redux implementation using redux-toolkit.
  3. Redux-persist implementation over redux-toolkit (blacklist store attributes)
  4. Bonus (React Native Paper — Component Library for Material design in React Native)

Why redux-persist?

  • Redux-persist does a very simple yet very powerful job of persisting your application state across different user sessions /browser windows(days, months, years).

Why this Story?

Implement redux-persist in a react (JS or native) app with redux-toolkit.

You may find documentation and other internet articles for redux-persist implementation with traditional redux (store, Provider, reducer, actions)


Easier than you think. Believe me!

Sole intention of this story is to learn nested routing.

SUMMARY of Story:

  1. What is nested routing?
  2. URL naming conventions
  3. Why nested routing?
  4. Advantages of nested routing
  5. Code example and implementation
  6. Guidelines

For React Js app architecture in detail refer:

What is nested routing?

Nested routing in react can be thought of multiple forward slash in the URL.


URL naming conventions I strongly recommend:

lowercase only
kebab-case/for-multi-word-url (use dash and not underscore or camelCase)
For any reason, if you plan to change/rename a url, make sure the old url redirects to the new one. …

Topics Covered:

Comparison between API vs Firebase CLI approach to manage RemoteConfig.

Firebase CLI to manage Remote Config when when you don’t have access to Remote Config.

GitLab CI/CD pipeline (.gitlab-ci.yml) for managing Remote Config.

Sample code examples for remoteconfig.template.json file.

Firebase remote config is a very powerful feature that can bring magic to your applications may it be web or mobile.

  • Remote config helps you set application configurations via firebase cloud console.
  • There configurations can be updated/set on demand. It does not require any deployment process.
  • Consider it like authoring content on CMS; change the required configuration and publish.
  • Version history of the remote config is very detailed and tracing the changes…

Material-UI: A popular React UI framework (material-ui.com)
version 4.11.1
Updated as on: Dec 25, 2020

Primary agenda of this story is to cover Theming with Material UI.

At the end of this story, you should have a React JS application with all the colors, typography (fonts), spacing, breakpoints, and other styling options set as default through out the website/application.

I desperately wanted to get rid of relative paths like “../../../components/Blah” from most of my react application files.
It makes me uncomfortable to see that in the list of imports.
Make react app code more readable with absolute paths. Get rid of relative paths.

Absolute paths for adding components from where without drilling backwards was my need and achieved it adding “jsconfig.json” file. No npm installation required.

ref: https://create-react-app.dev/docs/importing-a-component#absolute-imports

Fortunately this is it. You need to follow simple steps as below enable usage of absolute paths:

  1. Add jsconfig.json file in the root of your project (next to /index.js …

Hello folks! Today I am going to review OnePlus Bluetooth earphones. I actually don’t like calling it truly wireless as it bears wires. Although, let me share my review/feedback for OnePlus Bullets is positive. I love it! 😍

Ikea India returns policy: https://www.ikea.com/in/en/customer-service/return-policy-for-india-pub7b960a7b

This is the link for return policy of Ikea India. Somehow I wasn’t quite satisfied reading this page.

Don’t like it, return it!

After a few online orders in Mumbai, I once received a broken glass bowl in the delivery. That’s when I went through return policy and was clueless what is the process to file a complaint/refund.
This time I also wanted to return an Item which turned out to be pretty larger in size than I expected.

There is NO online process for return or replacement of damaged items.

Only thing I found helpful was Ikea customer service number “18004194532”.

Experience was a bit different…
