Library for implementing markdown syntax in React Native

react-native-markdown-package

Node Module Package for implementing markdown syntax in React Native. I knew this is not a perfect library, so your contribution, Pull Request, or anything else from you guys will be really appreciated. :)

Getting started

To install this library, you can easily run this command from your project folder.

npm i react-native-markdown-package --save

Usage

What you need to do is import the react-native-markdown-package module and then use the
<Markdown/> tag.

How to use?

Here we are, take a look at this simple implementation:

/**
 * Sample React Native App
 * https://github.com/facebook/react-native
 * @flow
 */

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import Markdown from 'react-native-markdown-package';
import {
  AppRegistry,
  StyleSheet,
  Text,
  View
} from 'react-native';

export default class AwesomeProject extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
        <Text style={styles.welcome}>
          Welcome to React Native!
        </Text>
        <Markdown styles={styles.markdown} >
          # This is Heading 1{'\n\n'}
          ## This is Heading 2{'\n\n'}
          1. List1 {'\n'}
          2. List2 {'\n'} 
          {'\t'}1. sublist1{'\n'}
          {'\t'}description sublist1.{'\n'}
          {'\t'}2. sublist2{'\t\t'}{'\n'}
          * List3{'\n'}
          * List4{'\n'}
          {'\t'}1. **bold text** {'\n'}
          {'\t'}2. this line contain * and should not be a new sublist{'\t\t'}{'\n'}
          5.  Last list{'\n\n'}
          Some *really* basic **Markdown**.{'\n\n'}


          ## this is header {'\n\n\n\n'}
          {'this is _italic_ '}
          {'this is **strong**'}

          {'\n\n'}
          | # | Name   | Age |{'\n'}
          |---|--------|-----|{'\n'}
          | 1 | John   | 19  |{'\n'}
          | 2 | Sally  | 18  |{'\n'}
          | 3 | Stream | 20  |{'\n'}
        </Markdown>
      </View>
    );
  }
}

const styles = {
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
    backgroundColor: '#F5FCFF',
  },
  welcome: {
    fontSize: 20,
    textAlign: 'center',
    margin: 10,
  },
  instructions: {
    textAlign: 'center',
    color: '#333333',
    marginBottom: 5,
  },
  markdown: {
    heading1: {
      color: 'red'
    },
    heading2: {
      color: 'green'
    },
    strong: {
      color: 'blue'
    },
    em: {
      color: 'cyan'
    },
    text: {
      color: 'magenta',
    }
  }
};

AppRegistry.registerComponent('AwesomeProject', () => AwesomeProject);

Properties

styles

Default style properties will be applied to the markdown. You will likely want to customize these styles, the following properties can be used to modify the rendered elements:

Note: The text inside the parentheses denotes the element type.

  • autolink (<Text>) - WIP
  • blockQuote (<Text>) - WIP
  • br (<Text>)
  • codeBlock (<View>) - WIP
  • del (<Text>)
  • em (<Text>)
  • heading (<Text>) - Also heading1 through heading6
  • hr (<View>)
  • image (<Image>) - Implemented but size is fixed to 50x50 until auto width is supported by React Native.
  • inlineCode (<Text>)
  • link (<Text>) - WIP
  • list (<View>) - Also sublist (<View>), listItem (<View>), listItemBullet (<Text>) and listItemNumber (<Text>)
  • sublist (<View) - Also listItem (<View>), listItemBullet (<Text>) and listItemNumber (<Text>)
  • mailto (<Text>) - WIP
  • newline (<Text>) - WIP
