I am wondering if the react-native Picker component is still maintained and if it is usable or if I am totally looking at the wrong thing for using a picker for a mobile app.
The Data I Have
I collected some data points about the React Native Picker but I still don't know if this component is in wide use or not.
npm Lists Many Downloads
On npm the package has >67k downloads a week which looks like there is some traction and many people are using it. That is my assumption.
Moved out of the RN Core
Last time I had used the picker component, it was part of the RN core. In about 2017, as far as I understand from the issue's comments. the Picker moved to the community repo, where some formerly core components have moved.
Unresolved Issues Stay
Almost no Maintenance
Most commits in the last months are about managing dependencies. A lot of issues are still open and knowing that the repo had moved in 2017 (I believe) I assume the issues had not been moved from there to the new repo.
