What's your experience (if any) been like with RN-web?

We're considering rewriting an existing hybrid app to RN w/web, uses camera but no other hardware. I read above that you wouldn't recommend create-react-natve-app? For first timers, would you recommend using that, then when comfortable rewriting instead of ejecting?

Thanks!

 

I haven't used it. I love the idea of sharing web code with react native, but I don't think that idea should go as far as to share dumb components so I probably wouldn't use it. I haven't gone through the process of ejecting an app but I've been told it's really painful, but it's probably not quite as bad as rewriting from scratch.

Sharing code with web was what got me into react native in the first place, I don't think that benefit is talked about enough.
