Expo Compatibility

Dynamic Search Bar is usable with Expo. You just need to add a peer dependency:

"react-native-dynamic-vector-icons": "WrathChaos/react-native-dynamic-vector-icons#expo"

Known Issues


Vector Icons are not showing :O

-> You need to add this line of code into app/gradle

apply from: "../../node_modules/react-native-vector-icons/fonts.gradle"

Animations are not working on the Android like the example ?

-> You need to enable experimental LayoutAnimation on the android. Here is how to do it:

import { UIManager } from 'react-native';

constructor() {

    if (Platform.OS === 'android') {
      UIManager.setLayoutAnimationEnabledExperimental && UIManager.setLayoutAnimationEnabledExperimental(true);

Future Plans

  • Write an article about the lib on Medium
  • Typescript Challenge!
