react-native-app-State

react-native-app-state is a declarative way to use react-native's AppState. Internally it uses the new React 16.3 Context API.

react-native-app-state

I think you got it. It's definitely easier than:

react-native-app-state

Getting started

Requirements

Because this library uses the new React 16.3 Context API, you need at least React 16.3.

Installation

Yarn (recommended)

$ yarn add react-native-app-state

npm

$ npm install react-native-app-state --save

Usage

See the example project under example/

import AppState from 'react-native-app-state';

class App extends React.PureComponent {
  onAppStateChange = (appState, prevAppState) => {
    console.log(this.constructor.name, 'onAppStateChange()', prevAppState, '=>', appState);
    // E.g. output: "App onAppStateChange() background => active"
  };

  render() {
    return (
      <View>
        <AppState onChange={this.onAppStateChange}>
          {({ appState }) => (
            <View>
              <Text style={styles.text}>App state: {appState}</Text>
            </View>
          )}
        </AppState>
        {/* ------ OR ------ */}
        <AppState onChange={this.onAppStateChange}>
          <AppState.Active>
            <Text>App is active</Text>
          </AppState.Active>
          <AppState.Inactive>
            <Text>App is inactive</Text>
          </AppState.Inactive>
          <AppState.Background>
            <Text>App is in background</Text>
          </AppState.Background>
        </AppState>
      </View>
    );
  }
}

ToDO

  • [ ] Write tests
  • [ ] Add/Replace example with expo
  • [ ] Add usage examples
    • [x] component based <AppState.Active>, <AppState.Inactive>, <AppState.Background>
    • [ ] <AppState.Foreground> alias for <AppState.Active> and <AppState.Inactive>
    • [x] with render prop <AppState>{({ appState }) => (<View />)}</AppState>
