Run the example
git clone https://github.com/FaridSafi/react-native-gifted-chat cd react-native-gifted-chat/example npm install react-native run-ios
Normally, after a code change to react-native-gifted-chat src files, you must remove the node_modules/react-native-gifted-chat directory and npm install. The react-native packager wont follow symlinks.
To assist development, this command watches and rsyncs changes:
npm run sync
Leave a terminal open running this command when running the Example app and making react-native-gifted-chat src changes.
