Factorial Complexity was hired by Wall Street Oasis company to finish and support the mobile application for their vast community of users. The application was built with React Native. Factorial Complexity had a huge experience with technology and was able to take over the existing code, improve it, and kept adding new features.
The work was organized as a dedicated team arrangement. Factorial Complexity developers were interacting with the customer's development team on a daily basis. They adapted the Wall Street Oasis processes and worked as an extension of the team.
The application in its essence is a convenient mobile client for the WSO forums. Users can connect and discuss various financial topics. Throughout the year and half of working on the project, the team has delivered a number of releases. New features were introduced as well as old issues with a codebase were gradually addressed.
Resolving Architecture Issues
The initial codebase didn't adhere to the best practices of React Native development. Redux was rudimentary used in the database without utilizing the full power of the architecture. This was gradually changed and the whole project was refactored to utilize the best approaches of Redux.
Fixing Bugs with HTML Rendering
The application had a long-standing issue with rendering user-created HTML content that comes from the web site. HTML is being mapped into the native views in order to speed up rendering. All standard React Native solutions for this have certain limitations. A custom solution was created that addressed the issue.
