React Native + Meteor Boilerplate

As technology changes articles get out of date. This post may be in that state now so be aware that things may not work exactly the same way. If you’re interested in getting the latest information please join my email list.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been writing a weekly blog post about various aspects of developing React Native applications that interface with a Meteor backend.

Here’s a basic series related to authentication:

  1. Easily Connect React Native to a Meteor Server
  2. Meteor Authentication from React Native
  3. Password Hashing for Meteor React Native

I’ve really enjoyed the process of research, writing, and the feedback I’ve gotten. I want to continue this process for the foreseeable future but I’ve found myself building and rebuilding a fair amount of boilerplate code.

So this week I looked at some larger React Native projects from the community and projects I’ve been involved with and started to pull out the strong points. I want this project to serve as a simple starting point for React Native + Meteor applications that works on both iOS and Android.

So, let’s collaborate and make this a great starting point for future tutorials and projects. You can view the project on Github.

Want these walkthroughs and tutorials emailed to you as soon as they come out? Sign up for my email list and I’ll send them to you!
