Too Long; Didn't Read

React Native can’t package core Node JS modules into React Native, so you get a runtime error. This makes core modules like crypto modules like that of the Node JS binary unusable from React Native. Fortunately, there’s a solution to this problem, but it takes some work. There is a hacky but simple way to fix this problem with React Native: create a standalone Javascript file that contains a polyfill for themodule and use it within our app. The last few lines of the file contain our code from the polyfills.
