React Native for macOS

Build native macOS apps with React.

React Native for macOS is released under the MIT license. Current npm package version. PRs welcome!

See the official React Native website for an introduction to React Native.

React Native is a framework developed by Facebook that enables you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms using a consistent developer experience based on JavaScript and React. The focus of React Native is on developer efficiency across all the platforms you care about - learn once, write anywhere.

This repository is a working fork of facebook/react-native that adds support for the official React Native for macOS implementation from Microsoft.

You can read more about the macOS implementation in our website - React Native for Windows + macOS


You can run React Native for macOS apps on Mac devices with versions Catalina (10.15) or newer.

For a full and detailed list of the system requirements and how to set up your development platform, see our System Requirements documentation on our website.

Getting Started

See the Getting Started Guide on our React Native for Windows + macOS website to build your first React Native for macOS app.
