A cloud service that enables Cordova and React Native developers to deploy mobile app updates directly to their users’ devices is our GitHub Project of the Week.
Basically, CodePush allows you to push code updates to your apps instantly. It works by acting as a central repository that developers can publish updates to and that apps can query updates from. It allows you to have a more deterministic and direct engagement model with your user base, according to its website. You can also address bugs and add small features that don’t require you to rebuild a binary or redistribute it through any public app stores.
The repo includes the management CLI and some shared code used by both Cordova and React Native client SDKs. See the simple guide on how to get started using CodePush here.
