We are implementing React Native framework for the development of the Front-End for the machine learning models maintenance and monitoring website. It provides meaningful error messages, and time-saving and robust tools make it a premium choice over other platforms. Moreover, it provides intelligent debugging tools and error report mechanisms. And most importantly for us, it provides the aesthetic minimal functionality to learn in order to implement it, thereby eliminating the need to work in Xcode or Android Studio for iOS or Android apps respectively.

Node.js is easy and good to use, their support team is also good they always tend to help you, and solve your problem, even we know that Node is free to use and opensource but then also we get support from them but for getting much better results we need to purchase standard or enterprises support provided by them.

Decision for React Native came mainly from the big popularity of the framework. Thus, we had a big base of resources we could come back to. We also used it because it is a javascript framework. Thus, we could utilize the already existing experience in javascript and web development to ensure a smoother implementation of the app.
