React Native Bootstrap Styles

React Native Bootstrap Styles

npm version

Bootstrap style library for React Native.

Original class names are transformed from "dashed" to "camelcase" format, for example: text-center to textCenter and my-sm-4 to 'mySm4'. Also all the constants (variables in terms of Bootstrap) could be accessible in templates. It helps to make custom tweaks preserving styling guidelines, for example: {fontSize: 10 * FONT_SIZE_BASE}.

Documentation with snippets and live samples: alpha version.

Basic "Hello world" example:

import React, { Component } from 'react'; import { View, Text } from 'react-native'; import BootstrapStyleSheet from 'react-native-bootstrap-styles'; const bootstrapStyleSheet = new BootstrapStyleSheet(); const { s, c } = bootstrapStyleSheet; class Hello extends Component { render() { return ( <View style={[s.body]}> <Text style={[s.text, s.textPrimary]}>Hello world! 🤓🚀🚀🚀</Text> </View> ); } }

Advanced "Hello world" example with custom styles:

import React, { Component } from 'react'; import { View, Text } from 'react-native'; import BootstrapStyleSheet from 'react-native-bootstrap-styles'; const BODY_COLOR = '#000022', TEXT_PRIMARY = '#882288'; // custom constants const constants = { BODY_COLOR, TEXT_PRIMARY, }; // custom classes const classes = { title: { color: 'red', } }; const bootstrapStyleSheet = new BootstrapStyleSheet(constants, classes); const { styles: s, constants: c } = bootstrapStyleSheet; class Hello extends Component { render() { return ( <View style={[s.body]}> <View style={[s.container, s.h100, s.justifyContentCenter]}> <Text style={[s.text, s.title]}>Hello world!</Text> <Text style={[s.text, s.textPrimary, s.myXs1, s.myMd3]}>Hello second world!</Text> <Text style={[s.text, s.py3, {fontSize: 5 * c.REM}]}>🤓🚀🚀🚀</Text> </View> </View> ); } }


Bootstrap renamed constants to variables some time ago.
No renaming here for now. See actual example above.

Check the full list of constants in the source code:

Extra dynamic parameters available as constants or properties of the bootstrapStyleSheet object:

DIMENSIONS_WIDTH, // ex. 750 DIMENSIONS_HEIGHT, // ex. 1334 DIMENSIONS_MAX, // ex. 1334 ORIENTATION_PORTRAIT, // ex. true ORIENTATION_LANDSCAPE, // ex. false MODE_LIGHT, // ex. false MODE_DARK, // ex. true SCREENS, // ['Xs', 'Md'] SCREEN, // ex. 'Md'


Styles, containing "media queries", are automatically updated on dimentions, orientaion and mode changes. There is nothing to bother about, except one little thing. Components should be forced to re-render with the updated styles. That's where the events could be helpful:

  • addDimensionsListener
  • addOrientationListener (portrait/landscape)
  • addModeListener (light/dark)**

Here is an example:

class App extends Component { componentDidMount() { bootstrapStyleSheet.addDimensionsListener(data => { // params are accessible // const dimensions = data; // direct call // this.forceUpdate(); // or via state change // this.setState({update: me}) // or via redux state change // dispatch('NAME', {update: me}) }); } render() { // poor pattern, supposed to be passed in state or props const width = bootstrapStyleSheet.DIMENSIONS_WIDTH return ( <View style={s.container}> <Text style={[s.mediaDependentClass]}>Screen width: {width}</Text> </View> ); } }

** extra package should be installed: react-native-appearance.


Simplified version of the original layout classes. Any ideas how to extend grid classes are welcome.

Impelemented features: .container-*, .gutters-*, .no-gutters-*. .row-{screen}-{n}, .col-{screen}-{n}.
Among non-impelemented features: .row-cols-*, .offset-*-*, .order-*-*.


As there is no such things as "tag-based" styles, "inheritance" and "nesting" for styles in React Native. Extra text classes defined, that should be applied to all Text tags, for example:

<Text style="{[s.text]}">Text</Text> <Text style="{[s.text, s.textSmall]}">Text</Text> <Text style="{[s.text, s.textMuted]}">Text</Text> <Text style="{[s.text, s.textWhite]}">Text</Text> <Text style="{[s.text, s.textBlack50]}">Text</Text> ...

Text styles for elements already include base s.text style instructions and can be used without it:

<Text style="{[s.btnText]}">Button text</Text> <Text style="{[s.formText]}">Form text</Text> <Text style="{[s.formLabelText]}">Form label text</Text> <Text style="{[s.navLinkText]}">Nav link</Text> ...

  • button group
  • cards
  • carousel
  • forms
  • list group
  • modal
  • pagination
  • progress
  • tables

Check live examples with code snippets in the app.



An attempt to mimic CSS selectors for group pseudo-classes, such as :first-child, and media queries:

<View style={[s.flexRow]}> { group.map((item, index) => ( <View key={index} style={[s.selectorFirstChild(index, s.bgLight)]}> <Text style={[s.selectorMediaUpMd([s.text, s.textPrimary])>Colored for Md+</Text> <Text style={[s.selectorMediaLandscape([s.text, s.textPrimary])>Colored for Lanscape</Text> </View> )) } </View>

Check the full list of selectors in the source code:

Some element classes have selector-based extensions, for example cardHeaderFirstChild:

provide an example...


  • flex is an alias for flex1, and the same for flex{screen}
  • some styles contain undocumented, but supported by Yoga, instructions, such as width: '100%'. React Native uses Yoga as a layout engine.
