The Beauty Of React Native: Building Your First iOS App With JavaScript (Part 2)


  

In part 1 of this tutorial we started building our iOS app from scratch. We started out by setting up a blank React Native project. Then we pulled data from the Unsplash.it API. Because downloading data takes time, we built a loading screen.

In the process we went over positioning UI elements with flexbox and styling them using CSS-like properties. Towards the end of part 1 we downloaded and included a third-party Swiper component from GitHub, which allowed us to display wallpaper data in a swipeable container.

Pope Francis Just Invited 12 Syrian Refugees to Live in the Vatican


In a sharp statement on the world’s response to the more than 1 million migrants to arrive in Europe since the beginning of 2015, Pope Francis took 12 Muslim refugees back to the Vatican with him following a trip to the island on Saturday.

Source: Petros Giannakouris/APThe pontiff took back three Syrian refugee families — "two from Damascus and one from the eastern city of Deir al-Zour" — whose homes were destroyed in air strikes during the conflict, according to the New York Times. A Vatican statement issued to the paper called the relocation a "gesture of welcome regarding refugees."

Refugees are not numbers, they are people who have faces, names, stories, and need to be treated as such.

The Times also reported the pope spoke at a refugee camp on the island of Lesbos, where he called the migration situation a "grave humanitarian crisis … Read More

Facebook’s new Origami Studio uses visual programming to create awesome app prototypes


Facebook has a new tool for designers, and it’s meant to make prototyping apps much faster and easier than your current workflow. Origami Studio is native for OS X, and uses current technology like Core Animation for stability and speed. Facebook also built Origami Studio to feel like Sketch or Photoshop in use. You’ll also be able to check out prototypes in real-time on the computer screen as part of the design environment, or on a phone plugged into your Mac.

Flea Performs Bass-Only National Anthem at Kobe Bryant’s Final Game: Watch

Flea Performs Bass-Only National Anthem at Kobe Bryant's Final Game: Watch

Tonight, as the L.A. Lakers play the Utah Jazz, Kobe Bryant is playing his final game. Prior to the game, Flea came out to play the national anthem. That’s right—Kobe’s last game was kicked off by a patriotic bass solo. It wasn’t the first time Flea has performed the national anthem at a Lakers game without his fellow Red Hot Chili Peppers (or Atoms for Peace) bandmates, but what an incredible and absurd way to send off Kobe. Watch it happen below.

Flea discussed his admiration for Kobe with Rolling Stone. "I look at him as someone like, you know, Charlie Parker or John Coltrane or Jimmy Page or Jimi Hendrix, you know?" he said. "He’s been able to change and evolve and grow and be such a master of his craft. It’s been great seeing him grow up, because he joined the Lakers when he was 17, and he’s done so much for our city." Flea once called an ESPN article about Kobe "absolute garbage."
