react-native-htmltext

WIP: Experiment to use HTML like markup to create stylized text in react-native.

Why?

React Native provide a Text element for stylized text. Instead of using NSAttributedString, you creat nested Text:

<Text style={{fontWeight: 'bold'}}>
  I am bold 
  <Text style={{color: 'red'}}> and red </Text>
</Text>

While this approach is excellent for static interface text, what if we have dynamic text with format we do not know until we use it? HtmlText is a component to present a limited subset of HTML as React Native views.

Important: This is not going to replace your WebView for HTML rendering, instead it use a limited subset of HTML and try to present it using native Text elements in a reasonable way.

Example

Input

render: function() {
  var html = `<p>Hello world <b>world</b> <i>foo</i> bar hahh</p>`
  return (
    <View style={styles.container}>
      <HtmlText style={styles.welcome} html={html}></HtmlText>
    </View>
  );
}

Input

render: function() {
  var html = `<blockquote><p>Hello world <b>world</b> <i>foo</i> <blockquote>bar hahh</blockquote></p></blockquote>`
  return (
    <View style={styles.container}>
      <HtmlText style={styles.welcome} html={html}></HtmlText>
    </View>
  );
}
