React Native WebView Getting Started Guide

Here's how to get started quickly with the React Native WebView.

1. Add react-native-webview to your dependencies

$ yarn add react-native-webview

(or)

For npm use

$ npm install --save react-native-webview

2. Link native dependencies

From react-native 0.60 autolinking will take care of the link step but don't forget to run pod install

React Native modules that include native Objective-C, Swift, Java, or Kotlin code have to be "linked" so that the compiler knows to include them in the app.

$ react-native link react-native-webview

iOS:

If using cocoapods in the ios/ directory run

$ pod install

Android - react-native-webview version <6: This module does not require any extra step after running the link command 🎉

Android - react-native-webview version >=6.X.X: Please make sure AndroidX is enabled in your project by editting android/gradle.properties and adding 2 lines:

android.useAndroidX=true
android.enableJetifier=true

For Android manual installation, please refer to this article where you can find detailed step on how to link any react-native project.

For iOS, while you can manually link the old way using react-native own tutorial, we find it easier to use cocoapods. If you wish to use cocoapods and haven't set it up yet, please instead refer to that article.

NOTE: If you ever need to uninstall React Native WebView, run react-native unlink react-native-webview to unlink it.

3. Import the webview into your component

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { WebView } from 'react-native-webview';

class MyWeb extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <WebView
        source={{ uri: 'https://infinite.red' }}
        style={{ marginTop: 20 }}
      />
    );
  }
}

Minimal example with inline HTML:

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { WebView } from 'react-native-webview';

class MyInlineWeb extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <WebView
        originWhitelist={['*']}
        source={{ html: '<h1>Hello world</h1>' }}
      />
    );
  }
}
