npm (scoped)

A view component for React Native with pinch to zoom and drag to pan functionality.

Demo of the example app

? Introduction

Even though the demo shows the library used with images, it was initially designed to show <View>s representing blueprints of rooms.

  • Pinch to zoom with two fingers
  • Drag one finger to pan
  • Keep content inside container boundaries
  • Configurable minimum and maximum scale

Thanks to react-native-reanimated all animations are running on the UI thread, so no fps drops are experienced.

AFAIK, Expo users should be able to use it once Expo updates to[email protected].

? Prerequisites

This library uses react-native-reanimated v2 and the new API of react-native-gesture-handler.

Before installing it, you need to install those two libraries and set them up in your project:

⚙️ Installation

npm install react-native-pan-pinch-view

import PanPinchView from "react-native-pan-pinch-view";

// ...

const CONTAINER = {
  width: 300,
  height: 300,

const CONTENT = {
  width: 900,
  height: 400,
// ...

    width: CONTAINER.width,
    height: CONTAINER.height,
  contentDimensions={{ width: CONTENT.width, height: CONTENT.height }}

// ...

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  image: {
    width: CONTENT.width,
    height: CONTENT.height,
