To get started with React Native development, you will need a modern code editor (like VS Code), NodeJS and NPM installed globally, a mobile device(iOS/Android) to test on and its respective SDK installed. Because React Native is a cross platform mobile development framework you will need to install Xcode for iOS development and Android Studio for Android Development, both will come bundled with the respective platforms SDK.
Through Node’s package manager (NPM), React Native and all its dependencies can be brought into your workspace. After the dependencies have been installed, you can use React Native's built-in Command Line Interface (CLI) to create your first application. The CLI can be used for many functions like running you application on a simulator or real device and building the app for production.
