Jitsi Meet android: java vs react native


#1

Sorry, I’m still finding my bearings (including in the jitsi github repos.)

  1. Is the default Jitsi Meet app for Android written in Java or React Native?

  2. Are both variants available - and if so, are there any functional differences?

from my understanding yes it is written in java. it utilises a library called ‘jitsi-meet-sdk’ which is also writtten in java but it uses the react-native bridge to expose certain functionality or something like that. the UI u see is definitely written in react-native. i hope this information is correct.

Again i am saying from my experience, u can use both ways. u can change a lot in just the UI using react-native and it will work (need to change namespace). Also u can generate sdk from master and use it in ur native app directly. And lastly, u can change in UI then generate ur own sdk by forking the repo and then can use it in ur native app. i mean thats how i am using it.
