Evan's Talk

Cross-Platform Navigation with Expo and React

The biggest issue with universal React Native apps is sharing navigation code across web and native platforms…

The paradigms are just so complex and different!

I’ve been doing lots of work on the issue at Expo, I'm excited to share some updates on the solution!

Ultimately we need a system to automatically split navigation elements away from routing so web can utilize the built-in browser navigation.

Also need to make the native navigation developer experience as easy as web, rather than increasing web complexity to the same level as native (this part is hard).
