🎈 React Native Camera Kit

A high performance, easy to use, rock solid
camera library for React Native apps.

React Native Camera Kit is released under the MIT license. Current npm package version.

  • Cross Platform (iOS and Android)

  • Optimized for performance and high photo capture rate

  • QR / Barcode scanning support

  • Camera preview support in iOS simulator

Installation (RN > 0.60)

yarn add react-native-camera-kit
cd ios && pod install && cd ..

Android: Add Kotlin to your project

Components

CameraScreen

Full screen camera component that holds camera state and provides camera controls

import { CameraScreen } from 'react-native-camera-kit';
<CameraScreen
  actions={{ rightButtonText: 'Done', leftButtonText: 'Cancel' }}
  onBottomButtonPressed={(event) => this.onBottomButtonPressed(event)}
  flashImages={{
    // optional, images for flash state
    on: require('path/to/image'),
    off: require('path/to/image'),
    auto: require('path/to/image'),
  }}
  cameraFlipImage={require('path/to/image')} // optional, image for flipping camera button
  captureButtonImage={require('path/to/image')} // optional, image capture button
  torchOnImage={require('path/to/image')} // optional, image for toggling on flash light
  torchOffImage={require('path/to/image')} // optional, image for toggling off flash light
  hideControls={false} // (default false) optional, hides camera controls
  showCapturedImageCount={false} // (default false) optional, show count for photos taken during that capture session
/>

Barcode / QR Code Scanning

Additionally, the camera screen can be used for barcode scanning

<CameraScreen
  ...
  // Barcode props
  scanBarcode={true}
  onReadCode={(event) => Alert.alert('QR code found')} // optional
  showFrame={true} // (default false) optional, show frame with transparent layer (qr code or barcode will be read on this area ONLY), start animation for scanner,that stoped when find any code. Frame always at center of the screen
  laserColor='red' // (default red) optional, color of laser in scanner frame
  frameColor='white' // (default white) optional, color of border of scanner frame
/>

Camera

Barebones camera component

import { Camera, CameraType } from 'react-native-camera-kit';
<Camera
  ref={(ref) => (this.camera = ref)}
  cameraType={CameraType.Back} // front/back(default)
/>

Camera Props (Optional)

Props Type Description
flashMode 'on'/'off'/'auto' Camera flash mode. Default: auto
focusMode 'on'/'off' Camera focus mode. Default: on
zoomMode 'on'/'off' Enable pinch to zoom camera. Default: on
torchMode 'on'/'off' Toggle flash light when camera is active. Default: off
ratioOverlay ['int':'int', ...] Show a guiding overlay in the camera preview for the selected ratio. Does not crop image as of v9.0. Example: ['16:9', '1:1', '3:4']
ratioOverlayColor Color Any color with alpha. Default: '#ffffff77'
resetFocusTimeout Number iOS only. Dismiss tap to focus after this many milliseconds. Default 0 (disabled). Example: 5000 is 5 seconds.
resetFocusWhenMotionDetected Boolean iOS only. Dismiss tap to focus when focus area content changes. Native iOS feature, see documentation: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/avfoundation/avcapturedevice/1624644-subjectareachangemonitoringenabl?language=objc). Default true.
onOrientationChange Function Callback when physical device orientation changes. Returned event contains orientation. Ex: onOrientationChange={(event) => console.log(event.nativeEvent.orientation)}. Use import { Orientation } from 'react-native-camera-kit'; if (event.nativeEvent.orientation === Orientation.PORTRAIT) { ... } to understand the new value

Barcode Props (Optional)

Props Type Description
scanBarcode Boolean Enable barcode scanner. Default: false
showFrame Boolean Show frame in barcode scanner. Default: false
laserColor Color Color of barcode scanner laser visualization. Default: red
frameColor Color Color of barcode scanner frame visualization. Default: yellow
surfaceColor Color Color of barcode scanner surface visualization. Default: blue
onReadCode Function Callback when scanner successfully reads barcode. Returned event contains codeStringValue. Default: null. Ex: onReadCode={(event) => console.log(event.nativeEvent.codeStringValue)}

Imperative API

Note: Must be called on a valid camera ref

capture()

Capture image as JPEG.

A temporary file is created. You must move this file to a permanent location (e.g. the app's 'Documents' folder) if you need it beyond the current session of the app as it may be deleted when the user leaves the app. You can move files by using a file system library such as react-native-fs or expo-filesystem. (On Android we currently have an unsupported outputPath prop but it's subject to change at any time).

Note that the reason you're getting a URL despite it being a file is because Android 10+ encourages URIs. To keep things consistent regardless of settings or platform we always send back a URI.

const { uri } = await this.camera.capture();
// uri = 'file:///data/user/0/com.myorg.myapp/cache/ckcap123123123123.jpg'

If you want to store it permanently, here's an example using react-native-fs:

import RNFS from 'react-native-fs';
// [...]
let { uri } = await this.camera.capture();
if (uri.startsWith('file://')) {
  // Platform dependent, iOS & Android uses '/'
  const pathSplitter = '/';
  // file:///foo/bar.jpg => /foo/bar.jpg
  const filePath = uri.replace('file://', '');
  // /foo/bar.jpg => [foo, bar.jpg]
  const pathSegments = filePath.split(pathSplitter);
  // [foo, bar.jpg] => bar.jpg
  const fileName = pathSegments[pathSegments.length - 1];

  await RNFS.moveFile(filePath, `${RNFS.DocumentDirectoryPath}/${fileName}`);
  uri = `file://${destFilePath}`;
}

checkDeviceCameraAuthorizationStatus (iOS only)

const isCameraAuthorized = await Camera.checkDeviceCameraAuthorizationStatus();

return values:

AVAuthorizationStatusAuthorized returns true

AVAuthorizationStatusNotDetermined returns -1

otherwise, returns false

requestDeviceCameraAuthorization (iOS only)

const isUserAuthorizedCamera = await Camera.requestDeviceCameraAuthorization();

AVAuthorizationStatusAuthorized returns true

otherwise, returns false
