The Foundry Release beta is out, and I wanted to show you its powerful capabilities with a very common use-case: rendering an article from a Blog. For this case study, we will use the official React Native blog, which is build on Docusaurus. The App will feature:

  • A list of articles fetched from an RSS Feed;
  • An aside table of content displayed in a drawer layout;
  • A scroll-to-section feature when pressing a TOC entry.

This study will be a good opportunity to learn or revisit important techniques to master this library. Also note that the implementation, especially targeted CSS classes are inherently tied to how the website is structured. Since the React Native blog is built on Docusaurus, the implementation should be very easy to transpose in other docusaurus-based blogs.

Now, let's get to the heart of it ❤️

After seven months of a long and exciting journey in alpha development and testing with the community, I am proud to announce the first Foundry (v6) beta release of React Native Render HTML.

This process has led the new API to mature, and the introduction of beta stage marks the end of its instability. During the beta stage, I will bring fixes to any issue reported by the community and expect the test coverage to rise above 90%. I also plan to refine the Discovery App and website, including additional sections for best user experience. Now, let's get to the heart of it!
