Usage

react-native-styled-toast is built to work with both vanilla react-native apps as well as react-native apps bootstrapped with Expo. It utilizes styled-components and styled-system under the hood to facilitate theming.

Because the toasts rely on theming, you need to ensure that you've wrapped your app in the ThemeProvider component from styled-components - then use the ToastProvider and wrap the rest of your app:

import { ThemeProvider } from 'styled-components'
import { ToastProvider } from 'react-native-styled-toast'

return (
  <ThemeProvider theme={theme}>
    <ToastProvider>
      <App />
    </ToastProvider>
  </ThemeProvider>
)

Now that your app has access to the Toast context, you can make use of the provided useToast hook to trigger a toast anywhere in your app:

import { useToast } from 'react-native-styled-toast'

const { toast } = useToast()

return <Button onPress={() => toast({ message: 'Check me out!', ...config })} />

If you aren't able to make use of hooks for whatever reason, you can still use the provided ToastContext.Consumer to fire off a toast.

import { ToastContext } from 'react-native-styled-toast'

return (
  <ToastContext.Consumer>
    {({ toast }) => {
      return (
        <Button
          onPress={() =>
            toast({
              message: 'Woo! This is a success toast.'
            })
          }
          title="Show Success Toast"
        />
      )
    }}
  </ToastContext.Consumer>
)

This component relies on styled-system to access colors from your theme. So you need to ensure that your theme object is configured correctly. Please refer to the styled-system docs. Your theme object should contain at least a spacing scale with some default colors, it should looks something like this:

export default {
  space: [0, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 32, 40, 48],
  colors: {
    text: '#0A0A0A',
    background: '#FFF',
    border: '#E2E8F0',
    muted: '#F0F1F3',
    success: '#7DBE31',
    error: '#FC0021',
    info: '#00FFFF'
  }
}

By default, react-native-styled-toast references the following theme color keys for their respective properties:

background (default toast background)
text (default toast text color)
success (default success accent color)
info (default info accent color color)
error (default error accent color)
muted (default close button bg color)

If your colors object in your theme does not contain these, you can customize these values in the toast configuration object. E.g:

const { toast } = useToast()

<Button onPress={() => toast({ bg: 'myBgColor', color: 'myTextColor' })} />

Fully Customizable Styling

You are now able to fully customize both the style of the Toast component itself, as well as the close button - all while respecting your theme contstraints. This can be achieved through the toastStyles and closeButtonStyles objects respectively. You can also hide the accent view. These options need to be passed to the internal toast config:


toast({
  message: 'My First Toast!',
  toastStyles: {
    bg: 'lightblue',
    borderRadius: 16
  },
  color: 'white',
  iconColor: 'white',
  iconFamily: 'Entypo',
  iconName: 'info',
  closeButtonStyles: {
    px: 4,
    bg: 'darkgrey',
    borderRadius: 16
  },
  closeIconColor: 'white',
  hideAccent: true
})

Above is an example of a fully customized toast which renders the following:

232342

Max Toasts

Along with the new styling updates, you are now also able to limit the number of toasts which a user can see. To do so, simply pass the maxToasts prop to the ToastProvider component:

<ToastProvider maxToasts={2} offset={16} position="BOTTOM">
  <Container />
</ToastProvider>

Dark Mode Compatible 🌗

Because of the theming capability of react-native-styled-toast, it has out of the box support for dark mode. All you need to do is ensure the color keys you're using for your different modes are the same
