This snippet is about deep cloning objects in React Native. React Native does not have a direct equivalent to the structuredClone() method because it doesn't have the same browser environment and doesn't interact with the DOM. While JavaScript provides methods like JSON.stringify() and JSON.parse() for basic deep cloning, they have limitations, especially with complex objects containing functions or circular references. To overcome these limitations, developers often turn to third-party libraries like Lodash, which offers _.cloneDeep() for robust deep cloning solutions in React Native projects.
