Feature Idea: React Native Apps

+1 for react native!
That plugin from Wix… I am trying it out. It looks like it shows some data, but all is just UIViewController. Can I do something with it or it’s just hard limitation of RN?

where can we vote on this?

Hi @edoardo, @olliebrennan, @jasonmerino, @brianjd, @Wang, @jules, @cristian1, @sdj, @kevin_mccall, @doronpe, @trubi, @matthias.schmidt, @ggordan, @ianm, @Lorraine.Fox,

Thank you so much for reaching out about React Native (in a couple different posts). We are starting to talk to customers about what they would want to see for data for React Native apps, since they are so different than native apps from the development and monitoring perspectives.

So, a couple questions for you:

  • What data is the most crucial for monitoring your mobile app? Crashes, network requests and errors, interactions, javascript errors, or something else?
  • For crashes, would the native code stack trace be enough, or would you need some mapping to the initial javascript?
  • What else would be useful that might be a bit different than for native apps?

We are starting some research on React Native. Please let us know your thoughts!

Definitely interested in any React Native developments.

For our team working in React Native, the more important part that we want to monitor are related to network requests and javascript errors. And if we can have mapped that error, much better.
I think that the big difference is everything related to javascript because it’s the important part of our app.

+1 for a stable and NR backed sdk/lib.

Data for monitoring :
Interactions, similar to regular mobile SDK.
Crash analytics.
Network info/profiling.

+1 for an officially-maintained react-native library. I think demand is still there three years after the OP’s original suggestion.

Still would want this to consolidate all monitoring into one place

+1 for react native!
Wix plugin doesn’t work for me and it is not maintained.
Native New Relic works for me on my RN iOS, but I am really not sure it is capturing everything…
Native New Relic doesn’t capture anything on my RN Android project and got error messages.

The support team told me it is on their roadmap now, but I don’t have any release date.

I’d really like to see React Native officially supported by New Relic - I’ve been using NR Mobile for years (at different orgs) & it’s still only ‘on the roadmap’.

At the moment, we’re using a fork of the wix nr mobile framework since they abandoned the project.

Hey everyone!

Good news - We do have a new more extensible Mobile agent in the works. I don’t have a release date yet - but rest assured that we are working on an agent that can work with React.

If you’re interested, I would suggest reaching out to your New Relic Account Manager to talk about the possibility of beta testing that, when we get to that stage with the agent.

Gillian, our Mobile Product Manager gave this update a while back:

Glad to hear that, thanks for your attention to the community!

Also, please consider people who develops React Native apps with Expo’s managed workflow since it doesn’t allow for linking native platform-specific code.

Thanks for the additional note - I’ll get that passed over to Gillian the mobile PM. :slight_smile:

Hi. pls, any update on this?
Do we already have a release date?

thank you

I don’t have a timeline just yet @wilsweb - we’ll update the thread here as soon as we have that information :smiley:

Any updates on this? I’d also be great if you guys could provide support for RN apps with expo managed workflow
