More Info

Right now, this is working due to a series of hacks that I put together. You can find them in my forks of cerebral and cerebral-react-immutable-store. The hacks aren't too bad, so hopefully we'll see support for React Native officially very soon.

If you have any trouble getting the demo running, please create an issue or find me in the #reactnative channel on freenode or Reactiflux.

The demo itself

The <TextInput> fields are a little wonky since the JS bridge seems a little slow for it to be saving all state constantly through Cerebral. It's probably not the best example performance-wise, but it at least demonstrates what Cerebral can do with state, and it serves the main purpose of showing that it can be run on top of React Native.

What's Cerebral?!
