I arrived fashionably late to the React Native party in Artsy. I had been a part of our Auctions Team, where we worked in Swift with some light-FRP. We were not affected by the 4 months of simultaneous work on moving to React Native, at all.
It was a quiet revolution. I did not have to install
npm, I made zero changes to the code for auctions and the whole app's infrastructure barely changed. Yet we moved to making all new code inside our 3 year old iOS app use React Native. What gives?
