Getting Started

First-time React Native Setup

If this is your first time running a React Native project on this machine, following the "Getting Started" instructions in the React Native docs here. No need to do the react-native init AwesomeProject part since this project has already been initialized.


You will need to get your own Mapbox API Key. Place it in env.json before you start.

Project Setup

  • git clone
  • cd charlotte-lightrail
  • git fetch
  • git checkout development
  • yarn install
  • A Simulator must be open in order to run the app. If you're on a Mac and have Xcode installed: open /Applications/
  • yarn start

Note: If you get an error where assets or components are pointing to a /node_modules directory, you may need to manually start the packager with npm start -- --reset-cache.


Currently, only Components in src/components have jest tests.

  • Run Tests: yarn test or yarn test:watch
  • Code Coverage: yarn test:coverage
