Essential cross-platform UI components for React Native
NativeBase is a sleek, ingenious and dynamic front-end framework created by passionate React Loving team at Geekyants.com to build cross platform Android & iOS mobile apps using ready to use generic components of React Native.
Icon is a wrapper around react-native-vector-icons and uses
Ionicons as the default iconFamily. To change the icon family you have to set it in the theme variable file. Other iconfamilies (like FontAwesome) won't work out of the box unless the variable file is changed.
