Today we are going to develop our first React Native application. In this tutorial I am going to directly jump into coding without explain code much. You don’t need to know all sort of technical jargon to write your first React Native application.

 

This application just prints “Hello World” text on your phone screen. This application can run on Android or iOS device without any code change. This is the power of React Native. You can run your application both Android or iOS devices with minimum code change and most of the code common for both platforms.

 

Before write any code you need to setup your development environment, if you haven’t done yet. You can get all the information here to setup your React Native Development Environment.


Creating a new application

To create new application, you have to use React Native built-in command line interface. You can access it without installing anything globally using npx, which ships with Node.js. Let's create a new React Native project called "HelloWorld":

 

npx react-native init HelloWorld

 


You need to modify App.js file as below to print “Hello World” on your phone screen.


import React from 'react';
import { TextView } from 'react-native';

const HelloWorldApp = () => {
  return (
    <View
      style={{
        flex: 1,
        justifyContent: "center",
        alignItems: "center"
      }}>
      <Text>Hello, world!</Text>
    </View>
  )
}
export default HelloWorldApp;


First two lines import "react" and "react-native" components. Then write simple function called "HelloWorldApp" and it just return "Hello, world!" text.


Finally, default export of "HelloWorldApp" function for rendering.


Next step is to run your application. Below command run your application either on your emulator or mobile device. If you want to test your application on the emulator you have to load your emulator. If you want to test your application on your phone you have to connect your phone via USB port to computer and run below command.

npx react-native start


This will load metro server.




Then run your application, run below command.


npx react-native run-android


Now you can see your code is running like this.



Now modify your code and see how the changes are reflecting. This is very simple code, but good starting point. Next we try to develop some basic React Native Calculator application.

The Power of ChatGPT and Whisper Models

A Deep Dive into Natural Language Processing Natural Language Processing (NLP) has seen a significant boost in recent years due to advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning. Two models that have shown remarkable success in NLP are ChatGPT and Whisper. In this article, we will delve into the power of these models and their applications in the field of NLP. ChatGPT is a transformer-based language model developed by OpenAI that uses unsupervised learning to predict the next word in a sentence based on the context of previous words. ChatGPT is a generative model that is trained on large datasets of text, such as books and articles, and can be fine-tuned for specific tasks, such as question-answering or dialogue generation. ChatGPT is known for its ability to produce human-like text, making it an ideal tool for applications such as chatbots, content creation, and language translation. Whisper, on the other hand, is a paraphrasing model developed by Google that is based on

How to generate component and define routings in Angular

  Things we learned so far How to set up environment             How to create Angular project   Today we will understand how you can create component using Angular CLI and how you can define routing to each component.
