Tinder animations with a Meteor-React-Ionic hybrid app

I just put together a demo of how to do Tinder animations with a Meteor-React-Ionic hybrid app here. I’m going to do a little more with the actual functionality in a later post, but I was really surprised by how easy this was to accomplish with React.


Thanks for sharing! Really interesting :slight_smile:

Waiting to see the final result and the next posts!

This is the second-to-last piece of the puzzle. We’re now passing in data from our Mongo collection using fake data and removing each object from the database on a yes or no swipe. The last step is giving the user access to the objects that were swiped affirmatively, which I’ll cover in the next post.

@samcorcos, your tutorial was awesome. Also, thanks for doing the legwork in getting a solid base set up.

I tried using the latest version of http://tinderclone.meteor.com/ on my Nexus 6, but dragging was jittery, like a slow framerate.

Did you experience this on iOS?
Would you consider this technique leading to a production ready app?

You’re welcome!

Yeah, box shadow animations are not performant on mobile. It should be a
lot faster if you just remove the shadow.

I also saw an article somewhere along the way that shows how to make
shadows more performant, but I can’t find it at the moment.
