ReactNative for Windows (vnext)

Hero Image with Logo

See the official React Native website for an introduction to React Native. See main landing page for more details on overall direction of react-native-windows.

The current subdirectory adds support for an earlier react-native-windows implementation built in C#. It reimplemented the JS<->Native bridge in C#, and shared the JS with Facebook's implementation of react-native. The ongoing direction of react-native involves a closer interaction between C++ and JS which is hard to achieve with a separate C# implementation.

In this vnext sub-folder, we are working on a rewrite of react-native-windows built in C++ that reuses the C++ core bridge implementation from Facebook’s React Native. This will allow React Native for Windows to innovate and provide features by sharing the same core as Facebook’s React Native. See Status for more details.

Status and roadmap

The development of the React Native Windows vnext implementation is ongoing. You can take a look at Milestones and Projects for a view on the work streams and tasks.

The vnext package currently supports v0.58 of corresponding react-native major version. See releases for more information on vnext release strategy.


React Native already has great documentation, and we're working to ensure the React Native Windows is part of that documentation story. Check out the React documentation for further details about the React API in general.

For a live document for information on parity status with Android and iOS, including details on implemented and missing components and modules, along with related issues for missing features from partial implementations, see Parity Status.

Coming soon - we will be publishing more documentation including some of the following shortly:

Getting Started

See Getting Started Guide for React Native Windows C++.

Opening issues

If you encounter a bug with the React Native Windows C++ implementation or have a feature request, we would like to hear about it. Search the existing issues and try to make sure your problem doesn’t already exist before opening a new issue. It’s helpful if you include the version of Windows, React Native, React Native Windows plugin, and device family (i.e., desktop, Xbox, etc.) you’re using. Please include a stack trace and reduced repro case when appropriate, too.

Please make sure to use the correct template for issues related to the vnext react-native-windows implementation.


See Contributing guidelines for how to setup your fork of the repo and start a PR to contribute to React Native Windows vNext.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
