A simple and reusable React-Native error boundary component.

Install

$ yarn add react-native-error-boundary

Usage

Using this component is really simple. First you have to import the ErrorBoundary
component. Then, you have to wrap it around any component that
could throw an error.

Basic

import ErrorBoundary from 'react-native-error-boundary'

const App = () => (
  <ErrorBoundary>
    <ChildrenThatCouldThrowEror />
  </ErrorBoundary>
)

Logging errors

You can log the error by providing an onError function to the component.

import ErrorBoundary from 'react-native-error-boundary'

const errorHandler = (error: Error, stackTrace: string) => {
  /* Log the error to an error reporting service */
}

const App = () => (
  <ErrorBoundary onError={errorHandler}>
    <ChildrenThatCouldThrowEror />
  </ErrorBoundary>
)

Custom fallback component

You can customize the appearance of the fallback component by providing the FallbackComponent prop.

import ErrorBoundary from 'react-native-error-boundary'

const CustomFallback = (props: { error: Error, resetError: Function }) => (
  <View>
    <Text>Something happened!</Text>
    <Text>{props.error.toString()}</Text>
    <Button onPress={props.resetError} title={'Try again'} />
  </View>
)

const App = () => (
  <ErrorBoundary FallbackComponent={CustomFallback}>
    <ChildrenThatCouldThrowEror></ChildrenThatCouldThrowEror>
  </ErrorBoundary>
)
