After setting up the development environment we have to decide which Code Editor we can use to develop our React Native Application. Here are the Top 2 Code Editors For React Native Mobile App Development. You can use any of the Code Editors to start development.
There are so many editors which are available for the React Native development but here we want to introduce only two of them, which are good in performance and best for the React Native App debugging but that doesn’t mean rest are not good.
We are just filtering out the simple to install and easy to operate code editors for the beginners and for those who are confused about what to choose. Due to the support of a very large community both are mostly used code editors.
We just want to mention that we are not in the big fans of both the editors and also don’t want to promote them, it is just we found both the code editors developer friendly.
