Create ArcGIS native apps in JS and have all the great tooling of React ecosystem.

Just a few of them:

React Native SDK: React Native | A framework for building native apps using React 

CLI: Introducing Create React Native App 

Expo SDK & tooling: Learn Expo | Expo v15.0.0 documentation 

ReactXP: A library for building cross-platform apps - ReactXP 

Did you know that Skype is written in React Native?

Many developers are using React Native and if they need a map component, these are the options:

GitHub - airbnb/react-native-maps: React Native Mapview component for iOS + Android 

GitHub - mapbox/react-native-mapbox-gl: A Mapbox GL react native module for creating custom maps 

I really do not understand why there is no React Native support for ArcGIS Runtime.

This POC sounds abitious but it's inactive more then a year: GitHub - glazou/react-native-arcgis-sdk-demo: Proof of concept - Use ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android ... 

Maybe someday.
