RxRNBridge

RxJava Observable bridge for React Native

Introduction

React Native supports callbacks or promise from native java code.

RxRNBridge as a helper further supports RxJava observables and user don't need to do type convert handy.

RxRNBridge is good for Android legacy code and leverage original RxJava ecosystem's powerful and start new UI view by React Native.

Usage

Simply add @ReactMethodObservable annotation to Observable returned methods.

@ReactMethodObservable
public Observable<String> foo() { ... }

Now these methods will be wrapped as js functions with callback. (i.e. foo(errorCallback, successCallback)) You could encapsulate callback as Promise.

var SampleModule = {
  foo: function(): Promise {
    return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
      RNSampleModule.foo(
        (error) => {
          reject(error);
        }, (val) => {
          resolve(val);
        });
    });
  }
};

Installation

  • build.gradle
...
apply plugin: 'com.neenbedankt.android-apt'

repositories {
    jcenter()
}

buildscript {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
    }
    dependencies {
    	...
    	classpath 'com.neenbedankt.gradle.plugins:android-apt:1.8'
    }
}

compile 'com.github.kudo:rxrnbridge:0.0.1'
apt 'com.github.kudo:rxrnbridge-compiler:0.0.1'
    
  • YourNativePackage.java

New a module instance by RxRNBridge.newInstance(YourNativeModule.class, reactContext);

E.g.

List<NativeModule> modules = new ArrayList<>();

NativeModule module = RxRNBridge.newInstance(RNSampleModule.class, reactContext);
modules.add(module);
...
return modules;

Known issues

  1. React Native callbacks/promise could only trigger once. Therefore, continuous event such as Observable.timer() will make problems.

Special thanks

  • @ChenNevin for share me with Android development and Java annotation processing
  • ButterKnife for structure and sample for annotation processor
