react-native event source

Server-Sent Events for your React Native apps! Based on @remy's EventSource polyfill.

Installing

Run the following command in your project's directory to grab the latest published version of this code:

$ npm install react-native-event-source --save

Using in your project

import RNEventSource from 'react-native-event-source'

Now you're ready to connect to your SSE endpoint and start streaming updates! :godmode:

const eventSource = new RNEventSource('https://my-sse.com/stream');

eventSource.addEventListener('message', (event) => {
  console.log(event.type); // message
  console.log(event.data);
});

You can also optionally pass a second argument when initializing RNEventSource to pass in header values:

const options = { headers: { Authorization: 'Baerer ...' } };
const eventSource = new RNEventSource('https://my-sse.com/stream', options);

Here is a full example that subscribes to a SSE stream and writes the results to console.log

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { View, Text } from 'react-native';

import RNEventSource from 'react-native-event-source';

class MyApp extends Component {
  componentDidMount() {
    this.eventSource = new EventSource('https://sse.com/stream');

    // Grab all events with the type of 'message'
    this.eventSource.addEventListener('message', (data) => {
      console.log(data.type); // message
      console.log(data.data);
    });
  }
  componentDidUmnount() {
    this.eventSource.removeAllListeners();
    this.eventSource.close();
  }
  render() {
    return (
      <View>
        <Text>Streaming!</Text>
      </View>
    )
  }
}
