Customizable Google Places autocomplete component for iOS and Android React-Native apps

Preview

Installation

  1. npm install react-native-google-places-autocomplete --save
  2. Get your Google Places API keys and enable "Google Places API Web Service" (NOT Android or iOS) in the console.
  3. Enable "Google Maps Geocoding API" if you want to use GoogleReverseGeocoding for Current Location

Example

import React from 'react';
import { View, Image } from 'react-native';
import { GooglePlacesAutocomplete } from 'react-native-google-places-autocomplete';

const homePlace = { description: 'Home', geometry: { location: { lat: 48.8152937, lng: 2.4597668 } }};
const workPlace = { description: 'Work', geometry: { location: { lat: 48.8496818, lng: 2.2940881 } }};

const GooglePlacesInput = () => {
  return (
    <GooglePlacesAutocomplete
      placeholder='Search'
      minLength={2} // minimum length of text to search
      autoFocus={false}
      returnKeyType={'search'} // Can be left out for default return key https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/textinput.html#returnkeytype
      listViewDisplayed='auto'    // true/false/undefined
      fetchDetails={true}
      renderDescription={row => row.description} // custom description render
      onPress={(data, details = null) => { // 'details' is provided when fetchDetails = true
        console.log(data, details);
      }}
      
      getDefaultValue={() => ''}
      
      query={{
        // available options: https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/autocomplete
        key: 'YOUR API KEY',
        language: 'en', // language of the results
        types: '(cities)' // default: 'geocode'
      }}
      
      styles={{
        textInputContainer: {
          width: '100%'
        },
        description: {
          fontWeight: 'bold'
        },
        predefinedPlacesDescription: {
          color: '#1faadb'
        }
      }}
      
      currentLocation={true} // Will add a 'Current location' button at the top of the predefined places list
      currentLocationLabel="Current location"
      nearbyPlacesAPI='GooglePlacesSearch' // Which API to use: GoogleReverseGeocoding or GooglePlacesSearch
      GoogleReverseGeocodingQuery={{
        // available options for GoogleReverseGeocoding API : https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/geocoding/intro
      }}
      GooglePlacesSearchQuery={{
        // available options for GooglePlacesSearch API : https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/search
        rankby: 'distance',
        types: 'food'
      }}

      filterReverseGeocodingByTypes={['locality', 'administrative_area_level_3']} // filter the reverse geocoding results by types - ['locality', 'administrative_area_level_3'] if you want to display only cities
      predefinedPlaces={[homePlace, workPlace]}

      debounce={200} // debounce the requests in ms. Set to 0 to remove debounce. By default 0ms.
      renderLeftButton={()  => <Image source={require('path/custom/left-icon')} />}
      renderRightButton={() => <Text>Custom text after the input</Text>}
    />
  );
}
