Last week was a great week for the react-native ecosystem. we saw some great announcements form react-native Europe and core team members that would make react native development more enjoyable.
In case you missed it, this is a small post that covers almost all news and announcements from the last week.
React native 0.61 release candidate with fast refresh :
Fast refresh is a “hot reloading” alternative feature and it should be as reliable as a full refresh but the feedback loop is fast.

It’s like the old "hot reloading" feature, but rebuilt from scratch for better reliability, error resilience, and function component support.
Want to help test it?

Flipper with React Native :
Flipper is a great developer tool for debugging mobile apps. This tool is shipped with react-native 62. But you can use it today with your existing Application, thanks to the amazing Parashuram’s blog post.

On the wave of RN navigation announcements I'm happy to release firstname.lastname@example.org that includes support for native nav stack primitives (e.g., UINavViewController) – you can also use it with RNN – check `createNativeStackNavigator` in the docs 👉 https://t.co/gj2beCqEgZ pic.twitter.com/Knpxgk6DgK— Krzysztof Magiera (@kzzzf) September 5, 2019
Microsoft is working on bringing React Native to Mac :
During react Native Europe, Microsoft demonstrates how they use react-native with Office suite to build cross-platform new features. And they announced that they are working on bringing React Native to Mac too.

Formik native :
The great Jared Palmer will publish on the next few weeks a native formik version with scroll/focus/keyboard management by default.
Some folks asked me after my #ReactNativeEU about scroll / focus / keyboard management in formik-native. The answer is yes, this will be built-in. There will be a <KeyboardAwareScrollView /> that will automagically scroll to the next input. Hacked a demo video for ya pic.twitter.com/k8SqkjTnVP— Jared Palmer (@jaredpalmer) September 5, 2019
