React Native eCommerce Boilerplate

This React Native eCommerce boilerplate is gives you a bare minimum setup to build your own React Native App for iOS and Android. It is connected to the Crystallize API. By default this React Native eCommerce boilerplate is connected to our demo tenant called “Furniture”. This is the same tenant being used in the JAMStack eCommerce Boilerplate using NextJS and shows re-use of product information and rich marketing content across Web and iOS and Android Apps.
