React Native Elements App

This is the Demo app for React Native Elements UI kit built with Expo. In this app you will find examples on how to use various components as well as Production-ready screens which showcase how to combine multiple components to built entire views in your app.

This repo uses React Native Elements as a submodule through /node_modules/react-native-elements. Hence once you clone this repo, you can make changes to any RNE /src files, test these changes through this example app and also commit directly to the main RNE repo.

Release date:

The current plan is to continue development on v1 until end of November. Please feel free to request new features or let us know what you would like to see improved on RNE v1. We also welcome PR's. 🙌

RNE v1-beta is slated to release in the second week of December. Since v1 has a lot of API changes (many of which are breaking changes due to re-written components), we will be releasing v1-beta to give users enough time to migrate their apps to v1 as well as give us time to iterate on feedback from the community.

The official v1 will be released in 2018 🎉 around mid-January.

Major contributors:

  • @xavier-villelegier 🔥
  • @iRoachie 💯
  • @martinezguillaume 🎸
  • @johot 🙏

RNE Ecosystem:

It's a platform that connects small teams/anyone that needs help developing their RN app to open source contributors that are willing to build complex UI screens & animated interactions for 💰. It's built on top of RNE & Open Collective.

If this sounds interesting and you would like to participate, please leave an 👍 on this comment. More details coming soon.

In the meantime, here's a taste of what's to come.
