React Native Cookies - A Cookie Manager for React Native

Cookie Manager for React Native

Maintainers

Platforms Supported

  • iOS
  • Android

Currently lacking support for Windows, Web, and Expo. Support for these platforms will be created when there is a need for them. Starts with a posted issue.

Installation

yarn add @react-native-community/react-native-cookies

Setup (React Native < 0.60.0)

Automatic (recommended)

react-native link @react-native-community/react-native-cookies

Manual

If automatic linking does not work, you can manually link this library by following the instructions below:

iOS

  1. Open your project in Xcode, right click on Libraries and click Add Files to "Your Project Name" Look under node_modules/@react-native-community/react-native-cookies/ios and add RNCookieManagerIOS.xcodeproj.
  2. Add libRNCookieManagerIOS.a to `Build Phases -> Link Binary With Libraries.
  3. Clean and rebuild your project

Android

Run react-native link to link the react-native-cookies library.

Or if you have trouble, make the following additions to the given files manually:

android/settings.gradle

include ':@react-native-community_react-native-cookies'
project(':@react-native-community_react-native-cookies').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/@react-native-community/react-native-cookies/android')

android/app/build.gradle

dependencies {
   ...
   implementation project(':@react-native-community_react-native-cookies')
}

MainApplication.java

On top, where imports are:

import com.reactnativecommunity.cookies.CookieManagerPackage;

Add the CookieManagerPackage class to your list of exported packages.

@Override
protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
    return Arrays.asList(
            new MainReactPackage(),
            new CookieManagerPackage()
    );
}

Usage

import CookieManager from '@react-native-community/react-native-cookies';

// set a cookie (IOS ONLY)
CookieManager.set({
  name: 'myCookie',
  value: 'myValue',
  domain: 'some domain',
  origin: 'some origin',
  path: '/',
  version: '1',
  expiration: '2015-05-30T12:30:00.00-05:00'
}).then((res) => {
  console.log('CookieManager.set =>', res);
});

// Set cookies from a response header
// This allows you to put the full string provided by a server's Set-Cookie 
// response header directly into the cookie store.
CookieManager.setFromResponse(
  'http://example.com', 
  'user_session=abcdefg; path=/; expires=Thu, 1 Jan 2030 00:00:00 -0000; secure; HttpOnly')
    .then((res) => {
      // `res` will be true or false depending on success.
      console.log('CookieManager.setFromResponse =>', res);
    });

// Get cookies as a request header string
CookieManager.get('http://example.com')
  .then((res) => {
    console.log('CookieManager.get =>', res); // => 'user_session=abcdefg; path=/;'
  });

// list cookies (IOS ONLY)
// useWebKit: boolean
CookieManager.getAll(useWebKit)
  .then((res) => {
    console.log('CookieManager.getAll =>', res);
  });

// clear cookies
CookieManager.clearAll()
  .then((res) => {
    console.log('CookieManager.clearAll =>', res);
  });

// clear a specific cookie by its name (IOS ONLY)
CookieManager.clearByName('cookie_name')
  .then((res) => {
    console.log('CookieManager.clearByName =>', res);
  });

WebKit-Support (iOS only)

React Native comes with a WebView component, which uses UIWebView on iOS. Introduced in iOS 8 Apple implemented the WebKit-Support with all the performance boost.

To use this it's required to use a special implementation of the WebView component (e.g. react-native-wkwebview).

This special implementation of the WebView component stores the cookies not in NSHTTPCookieStorage anymore. The new cookie-storage is WKHTTPCookieStore and implementes a differnt interface.

To use this CookieManager with WebKit-Support we extended the interface with the attribute useWebKit (a boolean value, default: FASLE) for the following methods:

Method WebKit-Support Method-Signature
getAll Yes CookieManager.getAll(useWebKit:boolean)
clearAll Yes CookieManager.clearAll(useWebKit:boolean)
get Yes CookieManager.get(url:string, useWebKit:boolean)
set Yes CookieManager.set(cookie:object, useWebKit:boolean)
Usage
import CookieManager from '@react-native-community/react-native-cookies';

const useWebKit = true;

// list cookies (IOS ONLY)
CookieManager.getAll(useWebKit)
	.then((res) => {
		console.log('CookieManager.getAll from webkit-view =>', res);
	});

// clear cookies
CookieManager.clearAll(useWebKit)
	.then((res) => {
		console.log('CookieManager.clearAll from webkit-view =>', res);
	});

// Get cookies as a request header string
CookieManager.get('http://example.com', useWebKit)
	.then((res) => {
		console.log('CookieManager.get from webkit-view =>', res);
		// => 'user_session=abcdefg; path=/;'
	});

// set a cookie (IOS ONLY)
const newCookie: = {
	name: 'myCookie',
	value: 'myValue',
	domain: 'some domain',
	origin: 'some origin',
	path: '/',
	version: '1',
	expiration: '2015-05-30T12:30:00.00-05:00'
};

CookieManager.set(newCookie, useWebKit)
	.then((res) => {
		console.log('CookieManager.set from webkit-view =>', res);
	});
You can’t perform that action at this time.
