React Native on Zebra Mobile Computers

31st August 2016 7 By darryncampbell

Just a quick blog to advertise the React Native module I’ve put together!

React Native developers targeting Zebra Technologies’ range of Mobile Computing devices running Android are out of luck as Zebra does not offer an official avenue for React developers.

To fill this gap I’ve put together a React Native module, react-native-datawedge-intents, available on npm or github.

The module interacts with the DataWedge service running on Zebra Technologies’ devices.  DataWedge controls the barcode scanner and can be separately configured through an XML file.  React-native-datawedge-intents interfaces with the DataWedge Intent API to receive scanned barcodes and offers a 1:1 mapping of the DataWedge API through React Native.
