API documentation

Installation in managed Expo projects

For managed managed Expo projects, please follow the installation instructions in the API documentation for the latest stable release. If you follow the link and there is no documentation available then this library is not yet usable within managed projects — it is likely to be included in an upcoming Expo SDK release.

Installation in bare React Native projects

For bare React Native projects, you must ensure that you have installed and configured the react-native-unimodules package before continuing.

Install expo-gl-cpp

expo-gl requires that you also install and configure expo-gl-cpp.

Add the package to your npm dependencies

expo install expo-gl


To use expo-gl with React Native 0.58.0 or newer you will need to use 5.x.x version of expo-gl and at least 0.4.0 of react-native-unimodules. Here is the table showing compatibility between these three packages:

expo-gl react-native-unimodules react-native
<=4.x.x 0.3.x <=0.57.x
>=5.0.0 >=0.4.0 *

Configure for iOS

Run pod install in the ios directory after installing the npm package.

Configure for Android

No additional set up necessary.
