Install Xcode and Android

Follow the installation steps documented on React Native's website for Xcode and Android:

Cloning and installing Node

To clone and run this application you'll need Git, Homebrew and NVM. Then run the commands below.

# Clone the repository
$ git clone

# Go into the repository
$ cd futurospective-mobile

# Install Node via NVM. This will install the version mentioned in the .nvmrc file.
$ nvm install

# Install watchman - Watchman is a tool by Facebook for watching changes in the filesystem. It is highly recommended you install it for better performance.
$ brew install watchman

Install React Native CLI and the dependencies

The React Native CLI will let you start your mobile client from your terminal.

# Install the React Native CLI globally
$ npm install -g react-native-cli

# Install dependencies
$ yarn

Running tests

# Static type checking with flow
$ npm run flow
# Linting
$ npm run lint

Testing with npm test is currently broken - haven't had the time to get my head around this yet as Enzyme does not support react v16-alpha (which makes total sense).
