Some of the npm modules literally have my heart

Under the Hood

Most of my last stories revolve around react-native because I am currently working on it for more than 8 hours a day.

I building a react-native web3 non-custodial wallet app, basically a metamask or uniswap mobile app.

Now every time I create a mobile app I prefer some of the modules as the go-to packages and that is the inspiration of this idea.


React Native vector icons npm module can be missed if you won’t have your own custom-made icons.

You can of course use images from Flaticon and Google but it takes time and for MVP I prefer vector icons to develop fast.


It’s a debate I still can’t use Expo for any production-based application. I have a doubt or let’s say didn’t trust Expo much for the high-level application.

The main reason is the community support and Expo is still new and its compatibility with multiple packages in future is what I doubt the most.

But still, to develop things fast and easily Expo will be my favourite and go-to package.

I mean I don’t want to waste time installing a react-native project and running it in my emulator this is a stupid waste of time.

Tailwind CSS Colors

I found this love recently because I use Tailwind in frontend or in all my frontend projects so automatically when it comes to dealing with colours in react-native I choose Tailwind CSS colours.

Basically, the below link is open for all my project's websites or mobile apps.

React Native Paper or Elements

Nothing much to say you will need UI components like Buttons, Tasb, and Spinners so just use any one of them and you are good to go.
