My email is on GitHub, anyone interested in helping keeping this library useful, don't hesitate to contact me!

Installing The Library

Using React Native version below 0.40? use version 0.0.1. Otherwise, use version 0.0.2.

RN < 0.40

npm install react-native-restart@0.0.1 --save

RN >= 0.40

npm install react-native-restart --save

Automatic Installation

react-native link react-native-restart or npm install -g rnpm && rnpm link react-native-restart

Manual Android Installation

In android/settings.gradle

...

include ':react-native-restart'
project(':react-native-restart').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/react-native-restart/android')

In android/app/build.gradle

...

dependencies {
    ...

    implementation project(':react-native-restart')
}

RN < 0.29

Register module (in MainActivity.java)

import com.avishayil.rnrestart.ReactNativeRestartPackage;  // <--- Import

public class MainActivity extends ReactActivity {
  ......

      /**
     * A list of packages used by the app. If the app uses additional views
     * or modules besides the default ones, add more packages here.
     */
    @Override
    protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
        ...
        return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
                new MainReactPackage(),
                new ReactNativeRestartPackage() // Add this line
        );
    }
  ......

}

RN >= 0.29

Register module (in MainApplication.java)

import com.avishayil.rnrestart.ReactNativeRestartPackage;  // <--- Import

public class MainApplication extends Application implements ReactApplication {

	private final ReactNativeHost mReactNativeHost = new ReactNativeHost(this) {
  		......

	      /**
	     * A list of packages used by the app. If the app uses additional views
	     * or modules besides the default ones, add more packages here.
	     */
	    @Override
	    protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
	        ...
	        return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
	                new MainReactPackage(),
	                new ReactNativeRestartPackage() // Add this line
	        );
	    }
	};
	......
	@Override
	public ReactNativeHost getReactNativeHost() {
    	return mReactNativeHost;
	}
};

Manual iOS Installation

Importing The Library

  • Drag the file RCTRestart.xcodeproj from /node_modules/react-native-restart/ios into the Libraries group in the Project navigator. Ensure that Copy items if needed is UNCHECKED!

Add Files To...

Library Imported Successfully

  • Ensure that libRCTRestart.a is linked through Link Binary With Libraries on Build Phases:

Library Linked

  • Ensure that Header Search Paths on Build Settings has the path $(SRCROOT)/../node_modules/react-native-restart set to recursive:

  • You're All Set!

CocoaPod iOS Installation

In your ios/Podfile make sure to use RCTRestart from the local node_modules/. With that, only your project Pod needs to be linked and no extra configuration is required:

target 'MyReactApp' do
  # Make sure you're also using React-Native from ../node_modules
  pod 'React', :path => '../node_modules/react-native', :subspecs => [
    'Core',
    'RCTActionSheet',
	# ... whatever else you use
  ]
  # React-Native dependencies such as yoga:
  pod 'yoga', path: '../node_modules/react-native/ReactCommon/yoga'

  # The following line uses RCTRestart, linking with
  # the library and setting the Header Search Paths for you
  pod 'RCTRestart', :path => '../node_modules/react-native-restart/ios'
end

Remember to run cd ios && pod install to update files used by Xcode.

Usage

import RNRestart from 'react-native-restart'; // Import package from node modules

// Immediately reload the React Native Bundle
RNRestart.Restart();

CREDITS

Thanks to Microsoft CodePush library. I simply extracted the code from their library's logic to reload the React Native Bundle.
