react-native-bg-thread

This package helps in executing the javascript in a background thread. Time-consuming javascript code is shifted to a native background thread by freeing the main-UI thread, which helps in increasing the efficiency of the application. Thread priority can be handled by passing in the appropriate flags. Currently we support three types of flag as under:

Priority Flags Description Android thread value IOS thread value
MAX This sets the thread priority to the maximum available on the corresponding native platform. 10 1.0
MIN This sets the thread priority to the minmimum available on the corresponding native platform. 1 0.1
NORMAL This sets the thread priority to the default or normal on the corresponding native platform. 5 0.5
