NativeBase is one of the most popular React Native libraries. This library is a free open-course framework for developers to build high-quality React Native apps with ease providing reusable components like buttons, lists, cards, header, footer, etc. In other words, NativeBase is a set of customizable UI components that can be used in your apps.

Front-End Web engineers not hard to start coding with components named HTML elements(Content/Header/Footer). It even has “Container” to replace React Native’s “View”.  It Seems that NativeBase likes Bootstrap on React Native. The biggest advantage of this library is that you can operate/add any other third-party libraries with it. This means that you can create a big project with the help of NativeBase and any other resources. Using Native Base components, every developer can create their own small or medium-sized project.  Similarly, it features convenient starter packs, customizable theme templates, and much more.
