We're delighted to introduce a new project type: React.
This new project type is optimised for web development with webpack, Express and React.js so you can now get a web app up and running within seconds. And to make your life even easier, you can now preview your web projects with the new in-app web browser.
Other than this, we have added buttons to control the console and app preview visibility and fixed a couple of crashes.
Ratings and Reviews
The most amazing JS/React sandbox app I’ve ever used.
Impressive — just what I needed!
Wow! Thank you 🙏🏽. This app is exactly what I needed to allow me to conveniently experiment with react native without having to fire up my Mac. The editor and DEV environment are extremely functional and user friendly. The documentation is a pleasant bonus. The two together present a very impressive learning and productivity tool. Wow!!!
I normally don’t post reviews
But I felt I kinda had to for this app. The dev designed it to perform exactly as it promised...and wow. Very well executed. I can actually program/build react apps on the fly. Props to the developer for making the UI so smooth and akin to a desktop experience.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
