Building a Fully-Fledged Media Player in React Native

A session at ReactNext 2016

Thursday 15th September, 2016

10:00am to 10:45am (JMT)

At Callstack.io, we have been working on the media player for one of our clients on both iOS and Android and decided to do it in React Native. React Native itself doesn't provide any APIs to control lock screen, bluetooth headphones or music playback thus they all have to be written. In this talk, we will check how all the above can be added to React Native with native modules while still being 100% reusable and easy to maintain.
