Benchmarks

Performance tests and comparisons.

React Native

In this benchmark  Tamagui is within 10% of the speed of vanilla React Native, even when using nearly all of Tamagui's features. We render list of 28 items with a few sections, text and images. Average of 5 runs on a Apple M2 Air:

Tamagui

108ms

React Native

106ms

NativeBase

247ms

Running Tamagui without the compiler averages 125ms or ~12% slower. Note that the compiler is much more effective on the web as it turns many more props into CSS and both bundle size and render performance are more important.

Web

We forked and ran a few more micro benchmarks  for the web.

Simple component

Timing rendering a simple custom component.

Updating variants

Changing variants is fast at runtime, and even faster when compiled:

Tamagui

0.02ms

RNW

0.063ms

Dripsy

0.108ms

NativeBase

0.73ms

Stitches

0.037ms

Emotion

0.069ms

SC

0.081ms

Since styled-components and Emotion don't offer a first-class variant API, this was done via prop interpolation.

Updating inline styles

Tamagui has a big advantage for inline styles, it's the only library to compile them and flatten the tree.

Fully dynamic styles

These benchmarks don't benefit from the compiler. The React Native API surface is much more feature-rich than DOM.
