Demo of react-native-tip

npm version npm downloads npm licence


To install the latest version of react-native-tip you only need to run:

npm install --save react-native-tip


yarn add react-native-tip

Try it out

You can find the examples above on src/example.

Basic Usage

Import TipProvider and place it at the very bottom of your App.js as below:

import React from "react"; import { SafeAreaView } from "react-native"; import TipProvider from "react-native-tip"; export default class App extends React.Component { render() { return ( <SafeAreaView style={{ flex: 1 }}> ... all your stuff <TipProvider ...global options, see below /> </SafeAreaView> ); } }

Show a tip

To show a tip you need to import the Tip component and wrap the component you want to highlight inside it as shown below:

import React from "react"; import { Text } from "react-native"; import { Tip } from "react-native-tip"; class App extends React.Component { render() { return ( <Tip title="Title" body="body" > <Text style={{ padding: 10, fontWeight: 'bold', fontSize: 20 }} > Show tip </Text> </Tip> ); } }

When you wrap a component inside <Tip> it becomes a touchable.
When you press it, it shows the tip automatically by default but you can change that by setting the props active = false.

OBS: if the item is already a pressable component, you have to show or close the tip manually by importing showTip(), closeTip() help functions.

import React from 'react' import { View, StyleSheet, TouchableOpacity, Button } from 'react-native' import { showTip, closeTip, Tip } from './Tip' import Icon from 'react-native-vector-icons/Ionicons' const Screen = ({ navigation }) => { const [_showTip, setShowTip] = React.useState(true) return ( <View style={styles.container}> <Tip id='heart' title="Do you liked it?" body="Remember to hit the heart if you enjoyed the content" showItemPulseAnimation pulseColor='#ff8080' active={false} > <TouchableOpacity onPress={() => { _showTip && showTip('heart') setShowTip(false) }} style={{ padding: 10, borderRadius: 50 }} > <Icon name='heart' color='red' size={35}/> </TouchableOpacity> </Tip> <View style={{ width: 200 }}> <Button title="Show heart tip" onPress={() => showTip('heart')} /> </View> </View> ) }

Show a tip tour

You can create a tour with the tips you choose by setting a list of steps and pass it as a param of showTipTour(steps) helper function.
Each step receives a series of params specified in TipStep Props below.
