OpenGL bindings for React Native to implement complex effects over images and components, in the descriptive VDOM paradigm. You can use predefined filters:

  • blur
  • contrast
  • saturation
  • brightness
  • hue
  • negative
  • sepia
  • sharpen
  • tempreture.

gl-react-native is an implementation of gl-react for react-native. Please read the main gl-react README for more information.

Configure your React Native Application

on iOS:

or if you use Cocapods:

pod 'RNGL', :path => './node_modules/gl-react-native'

on Android:

  1. android/settings.gradle:: Add the following snippet
include ':RNGL'
project(':RNGL').projectDir = file('../node_modules/gl-react-native/android')
  1. android/app/build.gradle: Add in dependencies block.
compile project(':RNGL')
  1. in your MainApplication (or equivalent) the RNGLPackage needs to be added. Add the import at the top:
import com.projectseptember.RNGL.RNGLPackage;
  1. In order for React Native to use the package, add it the packages inside of the class extending ReactActivity.
protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
  return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
	new MainReactPackage(),
	new RNGLPackage()


import React, { Component } from 'react';
import {
} from 'react-native';
import { Surface } from "gl-react-native";
import ImageFilters from "react-native-gl-image-filters";

export default class App extends Component {
  save = () => {
    if (!this.image) return;

    this.image.captureFrame() // <= you can pass config here, check docs

  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
        <Text style={styles.welcome}>
          Welcome to React Native Image Filters!
          ref={ref => (this.image = ref)}
        <Button title="Save" onPress={} />

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
    backgroundColor: '#F5FCFF',
  welcome: {
    fontSize: 20,
    textAlign: 'center',
    margin: 10,
