The best tools are built by users who are determined to improve their workflow! This is pretty much the story behind the creation of Vasern, a brand new data storage for React Native.

It is time to introduce you to a brand new data storage for React Native, Vasern.

React Native currently has 69,469 stars on Github, making it a steadily growing trend for building native mobile apps. However, as Hieu Nguyen, creator of Vasern pointed out, the available options for data storage are quite limited.

This became the main driver behind his decision to build Vasern — a database which would allow you to just plug in and use, and without any third party or services involved. What’s more, in order to obtain the best performance, Vasern is built natively.

Vasern’s design and structures are inspired by various open source databases and the benefits of using it include:

  • It’s open source
  • Developer friendly end-to-end database sync solution
  • Focus on performance and consistency
  • Super fast

Getting started

Vasern is currently available on iOS under alpha version which means you should expect breaking changes and improvements coming live!

The currently supported data types are:

  • Basic data types: string, int, double, datetime
  • reference “#”, optional “?”, list “[]”

Make sure you check out the GitHub repo for more information on this tool and any upcoming changes.

Vasern is still under construction so a lot of things are yet to come!
