React Native generator

List

Install

To use this generator you need Node.js and Yarn (or npm) installed. To run the command line tool, we also recommend using npx.

Create a React Native application using Expo CLI.

yarn global add expo-cli
expo init my-app

When asked, choose to use the blank template, then move to the created directory:

cd my-app

Install the required dependencies:

yarn add redux react-redux redux-thunk redux-form react-native-elements react-native-router-flux react-native-vector-icons prop-types whatwg-url buffer react-native-event-source react-native-gesture-handler react-native-reanimated react-native-screens

Generating a Native App

In the app directory, generate the files for the resource you want:

npx @api-platform/client-generator https://demo.api-platform.com . --generator react-native --resource book

Replace the URL with the entrypoint of your Hydra-enabled API. Omit the resource flag to generate files for all resource types exposed by the API.

Create a Router.js file to import all routes:

// Router.js
import React from 'react';
import { Router, Stack } from 'react-native-router-flux';
// Replace "book" with the name of the resource type
import BookRoutes from './routes/book';

const RouterComponent = () => {
  return (
      <Router>
        <Stack key="root">
          {BookRoutes}
        </Stack>
      </Router>
  );
};

export default RouterComponent;

Here is an example of an App.js file:

// App.js
import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { Provider } from 'react-redux';
import thunk from 'redux-thunk';
import { createStore, applyMiddleware, combineReducers } from 'redux';
import { View } from 'react-native';
import {reducer as form} from 'redux-form';

// see https://github.com/facebook/react-native/issues/14796
import { Buffer } from 'buffer';
global.Buffer = Buffer;

// see https://github.com/facebook/react-native/issues/16434
import { URL, URLSearchParams } from 'whatwg-url';
global.URL = URL;
global.URLSearchParams = URLSearchParams;

// see https://github.com/facebook/react-native/issues/12890
import RNEventSource from 'react-native-event-source';
global.EventSource = RNEventSource;

// Replace "book" with the name of resource type
import book from './reducers/book';
import Router from './Router';

export default class App extends Component {
  render() {
    const store = createStore(combineReducers({
      book,
      form
    }), {}, applyMiddleware(thunk));
    return (
        <Provider store={store}>
          <View style={{flex: 1}}>
            <Router/>
          </View>
        </Provider>
    );
  }
}

The code is ready to be executed!
