iOS dev says he may never use Objective-C or Swift again! Web wins again.

He doesn't just like it. He loves it:

Most, if not all, of my initial complaints about React Native wouldn’t even exist if I started learning it today. Bugs are fixed daily, and new releases seem to pop up every week or so. The documentation still needs work, but has greatly improved. Facebook and the open source community in general are clearly very serious about developing this framework. It’s nice to see people actively engaged in React Native issues on GitHub and questions on Stack Overflow. If you are an iOS developer considering playing with React Native, know that you aren’t alone. React Native is wonderful, and you should try to embrace it with an open mind. Don’t pigeonhole yourself into what is comfortable like I did.

Step outside of your comfort zone and you may just find something even better than before.
