Animating Navigation: Going off the deep end

This talk begins with a quick introduction to the Animated API and a demonstration of the touch responder system. We will build a sample gesture and animation together and explain how it works behind the scenes. Then we will dive into the new Navigation API for React Native, and demonstrate how we can customize the gestures and animations of navigation in our app. Lastly, we will discuss the shortcuts and limitations of this approach to navigation.

Unraveling Navigation in React Native

Navigation in a mobile app is not typically as simple as navigation in the browser. On the web, we typically have a single history stack. But on mobile, navigation can be deeply nested, and is directly tied into the fabric of almost every mobile app, and even into the gestures and animations. I'll discuss the current state of the world of navigation in React Native, and demo a new solution that we've built at Exponent that can unravel the complexity of building an app with complex navigation.
