Why create a desktop app with React Native Windows?

Build one application that runs on every Windows device. Provide desktop solutions with less effort by using reusable components or even legacy XAML code.

How does it work?

React Native Windows enables developers and designers to speak one common language in the whole development process. It allows developers to create reusable UI components with a modern-looking view that can be easily integrated with the application logic.
create the initial structure able to hold all the content developed as components of your application.
