Chabok react native chat
in this demo, we implement a Chat application based on react native with Chabok SDK.

If Yarn was installed when the project was initialized, then dependencies will have been installed via Yarn, and you should probably use it to run these commands as well. Unlike dependency installation, command running syntax is identical for Yarn and NPM at the time of this writing.
Runs your app in development mode.
npm start -- --reset-cache # or yarn start -- --reset-cache
Runs the jest test runner on your tests.
npm run ios
npm start, but also attempts to open your app in the iOS Simulator if you're on a Mac and have it installed.
npm run android
npm start, but also attempts to open your app on a connected Android device or emulator. Requires an installation of Android build tools (see React Native docs for detailed setup). We also recommend installing Genymotion as your Android emulator. Once you've finished setting up the native build environment, there are two options for making the right copy of
adb available to Create React Native App:
If you're unable to load your app on your phone due to a network timeout or a refused connection, a good first step is to verify that your phone and computer are on the same network and that they can reach each other. Create React Native App needs access to ports 19000 and 19001 so ensure that your network and firewall settings allow access from your device to your computer on both of these ports.
Try opening a web browser on your phone and opening the URL that the packager script prints, replacing
http://. So, for example, if underneath the QR code in your terminal you see:
Try opening Safari or Chrome on your phone and loading
If this works, but you're still unable to load your app by scanning the QR code, please open an issue on the Create React Native App repository with details about these steps and any other error messages you may have received.
If you're not able to load the
http URL in your phone's web browser, try using the tethering/mobile hotspot feature on your phone (beware of data usage, though), connecting your computer to that WiFi network, and restarting the packager.
iOS Simulator won't open
If you're on a Mac, there are a few errors that users sometimes see when attempting to
npm run ios:
- "non-zero exit code: 107"
- "You may need to install Xcode" but it is already installed
- and others
There are a few steps you may want to take to troubleshoot these kinds of errors:
- Make sure Xcode is installed and open it to accept the license agreement if it prompts you. You can install it from the Mac App Store.
- Open Xcode's Preferences, the Locations tab, and make sure that the
Command Line Toolsmenu option is set to something. Sometimes when the CLI tools are first installed by Homebrew this option is left blank, which can prevent Apple utilities from finding the simulator. Make sure to re-run
npm/yarn run iosafter doing so.
- If that doesn't work, open the Simulator, and under the app menu select
Reset Contents and Settings.... After that has finished, quit the Simulator, and re-run
npm/yarn run ios.
