  • Q&A Channel Reactiflux
  • The Mobile Content-Editing team is focused on mobile but their app is a hybrid mobile-webapp (React) + native kotlin/Swift + react-native. Also, the react-native that they write is cross-platform mobile & desktop-web with an opinionated architecture about business-logic/rendering separation. Bob gave a talk about it at Chain React last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZGaWefWVBs
  • The Design Platform team works on both web and mobile using React and React Native. This fundamental cross-platform architecture used by their react and react-native code was spearheaded by the efforts of this team. Also, Squarespace does use use GraphQL in some of its software but they don’t it our mobile apps (yet).
