Mobile social coordination prototype built with React Native and Firebase



React, Redux, Firebase, React Native Elements, React Native Router Flux, Location API

Installing / Getting started

To clone the repo and install dependencies:

cd socialite/
npm install

To get the development environment up and running, you'll first need to signup for an Expo account install the Expo XDE if you prefer a GUI:

Using Expo Client:

  1. Open Expo XDE
  2. Select 'Open existing project...'
  3. Find and select the cloned project folder
  4. Once the project has initialized, click 'Device' and select your preferred simulator

Using Expo CLI:

  1. npm install -d exp to install expo globally
  2. exp login to login
  3. ios [project-dir] to open project in Expo and in an iOs simulator or
  4. android [project-dir] to open project in Expo and in an Android simulator

You'll also need a unique Yelp Fusion API key which you can get here:

Once you've obtained your unique API key, add the following to config/index.js in the root dir:

export const YELP_API_KEY = 'API KEY STRING'


To build the project, select 'Publish' in the Expo XDE dashboard.


Currently no testing has been implemented. This is something planned for future versions.


  • User can signup and login to an authenticated view
  • User can immediately see places nearby their current latitude and longitude
  • User can see relevant information about places nearby
  • User can search places that are in proximity to their current location and the results will display in real-time
  • User can call a place by tapping the phone number listed on the card
  • User can RSVP to any place that appears
  • User can see how many other people have also RSVP'd
  • User can see their current RSVP'd places in their 'My Places' view
  • User can easily remove their RSVP from a place and the place will subsequently be removed from their 'My Places' view





My Places

Future Considerations and Open Thoughts

This app is a starting point for a more robust experience. Future features to include are:

  • Ability to view, by username, which users are also attending the same place
  • Friend/Follow functionality
  • Ability to receive push notifications when a friend RSVPs to the same place
  • Archive or calendar or past places you visited
  • Ability to sort/search places by category
  • User authentication needs to be included in a single component; currently, both Login and Signup forms are separate components with a lot of duplicated code.
