Getting start with React Native

React Native lets you build mobile apps using only JavaScript. A React Native app is a real mobile app. It uses the same design as React, letting you compose a rich mobile UI from declarative components.


Using Create React Native App we can start building a new React Native application easily. It allows you to start a project without installing or configuring any tools to build native code – no Xcode or Android Studio installation required.

Assuming that you have Node installed, you can use npm to install the create-react-native-app command-line utility:

Try creating a new project:-

This will start a development server for you, and print a QR code in your terminal.

To run your app,

Install the Expo client app on your iOS or Android phone and connect to the same wireless network as your computer. Using the Expo app, scan the QR code from your terminal to open your project.

Basic App

In the App.js file you can see:-

import, from, class, extends, and the () => syntax in the example above are all ES2015 (also known as ES6)  features. The unusual thing in this code example is.<Text>Hello world!</Text> This is JSX – a syntax for embedding XML within JavaScript. <Text> is a built-in component that just displays some text. This code is …

Observer Design Pattern in Ruby

Bookmark and Share

Observer design pattern (also known as Publish/Subscribe) is a software design pattern, used when we are building a system where the state of one object affects the state of other objects. It is a key part of model-view-controller architectural pattern.

In a traditional MVC ( Model-View-Controller ) architecture, a model is a subject and a view is an observer. A view is notified when a model changes and responds accordingly. When the subject sends observers detailed information about what has changed, indiscriminately, this is known as the push model of the Observer pattern. When a subject sends only minimal information to its observers must ask for details explicitly, this is known as the pull model of the Observer pattern.

Observer Design Pattern

Ruby provides a simple mechanism to implement this design pattern using the Observable module. In this mechanism, the Notifier class uses the Observable module, which provides the methods for managing the associated observer objects.

The observable object must:

  • assert that it has #changed
  • call #notify_observers

An observer subscribes to updates using #add_observer, which also specifies the method called via notify observers. The default method for notify observers
