Attending React India 2022 (Goa), working on a performance fix for NativeBase, experimenting with NativeBase for Flutter, and animating tokens using Moti- we've been keeping busy this past month (follow us on Twitter yet?). A quick look into what we have been up to and our upcoming plans for NativeBase:
Events and Meetups

🔷 Devfest Bangalore 2022
#HogaHoga, the tagline that defines our work mindset, made it to the main stage of Devfest Bangalore 2022. Watch Ashwin Gopinathan and Gayathri Devi Srinivasan's talk on "Diving Deep into Flutter WebViews", in which they create an API/backend server and demonstrate it on WebView.
Latest Experiments and Upcoming Releases
🔷 Performance Fix Release
We are working on a performance fix release v3.5.0 for NativeBase. It is close to launching and we are excited to share it soon. Keep following us on Twitter and GitHub for the latest updates!
🔷 NativeBase for Flutter
We are experimenting with NativeBase for Flutter! The attempt is to recreate what we did with NativeBase for React Native - this is an ongoing experiment by Hasnen Tai.
🔷 NativeBase X Moti
Sankalp Pandey experimented with animating NativeBase tokens using Moti, a universal animation library for React Native. Leveraging both tools, the goal was to analyze how easily a NativeBase component could be animated using Moti. Read the full article here to know how this perfect match was achieved.
