react-native-drawer-menu Build Status Coverage Status

A drawer component for React Native Application (ios / android)

Similar to drawer menu component of QQ mobile.


iOS Platform

Android Platform


SUGGESTION In iOS, the drawer menu component should only be used in the top level route, because the action that swipes from left side of the screen to right is designed to pop route from navigate stack. You are supposed to avoid the conflict of the UI interactions. At least, don't use the Left drawer menu to wrap sub routes, use Right drawer menu if it's needed.

install from npm

npm install --save react-native-drawer-menu

import in project

import Drawer from 'react-native-drawer-menu';
import {Easing} from 'react-native'; // Customize easing function (Optional)
// in render function
render() {
  // prepare your drawer content
  var drawerContent = (<View style={styles.drawerContent}>
    <View style={styles.leftTop}/>
    <View style={styles.leftBottom}>
      <View><Text>Drawer Content</Text></View>
  // customize drawer's style (Optional)
  var customStyles = {
    drawer: {
      shadowColor: '#000',
      shadowOpacity: 0.4,
      shadowRadius: 10
    mask: {}, // style of mask if it is enabled
    main: {} // style of main board
  return (
      customStyles={{drawer: styles.drawer}}
      onDrawerOpen={() => {console.log('Drawer is opened');}}
      onDrawerClose={() => {console.log('Drawer is closed')}}
      <View style={styles.content}>
        <Text>{Object.values(Drawer.positions).join(' ')}</Text>
        <Text>{Object.values(Drawer.types).join(' ')}</Text>

Notice: The reference of the drawer is passed to drawer content element, you could use this.props.drawer to invoke Drawer's instance methods like this.props.drawer.closeDrawer()
