React Native / Lock

Hi,

I’m currently using https://github.com/auth0/react-native-auth0 for a React Native project. It works but was looking at integrating with the respective lock native solutions.

I noticed that there used to be an official solution: https://github.com/auth0/react-native-lock
My question: Was there a specific technical reason that it was deprecated or was it just to decrease maintenance overhead?

Thanks,
Thorben

Hey there @thorben!

Let me research it and get that info for you!

Got an update!

So it was basically not to decrease the maintenance overhead but because of the fact that we want you to to avoid using that library and use react-native-auth0 and a browser based login. That’s just it

Thanks for the answer @konrad.sopala.

I see where react-native-auth0 is solid for prototyping / getting started quickly. However when trying to build / deliver a native experience, sending the user to the browser with the address bar visible, doesn’t feel like a very good user experience.

Thanks a lot for that feedback! I’ll make sure to relay it to appropriate team!
