Hermes Engine for React Native is here!
So it started from here :
Facebook officially released React Native v0.60.2 about two hours ago which enables the engine as an opt-in feature. This brings a really big advancement on mobile development with React Native as it will give the Android Applications built with react native a significant boost in performance, smaller build size and less memory usage! 💜❤️
And the integration is so easy! Just enable it in your
build.gradle file and that's it. Done 🙆♂️ Literally, JUST ONE LINE OF CODE AND THATS IT! ✨
You can see the difference on app startup here!👇 :
The only thing is that you need to upgrade React Native to version 0.60.2 which has a lot of significant changes (RN v0.60 was released a week ago - see changelog here) but well, the improvement for Android apps with this engine is AWESOME! Definitely trying it over the weekend! 💪
Who all are excited for this? I definitely am!
