In the previous two posts we have bootstrapped a React Native project with TypeScript and CocoaPods, and then integrated an SQLite plugin to enable storing relational data on-device. Next, let’s take a look at using the Dropbox HTTP API to backup our database and enable synchronization between devices. We’ll begin by walking through support for the Dropbox v2 authorization flow in a React Native app, and then use the token we are granted to enable synchronization of our database file via the Dropbox

Building an offline first app with React Native and SQLite
This article walks through how I built an offline first React Native app using a device-local SQLite database, and details the patterns that I would recommend following when building your own. As I mentioned in the intro of my last post, I recently worked on a side project which required the secure storage of financial data in a relational manner. Due to the sensitive nature of the data, we did not want to store it on a server. The solution we came up with was one where the data would be stored locally on-device, which we found to have a number of benefits:
