  1. Hello Kumar Harsh,

    thank you for this tutorial is very well explained and is easy to follow, I got to the last step but Im having a problem when I try to launch the local server with the command:

    ./node_modules/.bin/webpack-dev-server -inline

    this is the error Im receiving:
    Error: Cannot find module ‘webpack-cli/bin/config-yargs’
    at Function.Module._resolveFilename (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:636:15)
    at Function.Module._load (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:562:25)

    and this are the versions Im using in my package.json:
    “webpack”: “^5.38.1”,
    “webpack-cli”: “^4.7.2”,
    “webpack-dev-server”: “^3.11.2”

    thanks in advance for the help.

  2. Good to know that same source can be used to develop mobile and web apps using React-native for Web. Any idea how it compares with Flutter which can also be used for developing apps that work on mobile as well as web?

  3. So while a web app can simply be written in HTML, CSS & basic JS directly, just like web pages, we should now all use React Native plus React Native Web? Where’s the logic in that?

    1. If your users want a mobile app and a website then you can use one code base to write all of them. Less dev time, less cost. Better product. Thats the logic. If you just want a website and no mobile app then no need to bother with this.

  4. I guess the idea is that if you have a mobile app up and running but you have to create a website from scratch and if there is a way to use the same code with a little tweaks into web, then why not?

  5. The example for Expo doesn’t work on Android for me. Anyone else experience this? IOS and web seem to work ok. Android users are people too 😛
