Too Long; Didn't Read

I never thought I would be writing an article on Medium, but I honestly couldn’t find a decent guide or example of using <a href="https://github.com/facebook/react-native" target="_blank">React Native</a> with <a href="http://socket.io/" target="_blank">Socket.io</a> for this use case. I did find <a href="https://medium.com/@ekryski/how-to-actually-use-socket-io-in-react-native-39082d8d6172#.qjp8o5hs3" target="_blank">some</a> <a href="https://github.com/badfortrains/wsExample" target="_blank">relevant</a> <a href="https://github.com/skellock/phoenix-react-native-mashup" target="_blank">examples</a>, but they were either not descriptive enough or were using a different tech stack. So now it’s time for me to contribute to the wealth of knowledge.
