GHubber (GitHub mobile client)

Yet another Mobile iphone client for GitHub powered on react-native.

How to get alpha version :atom:


The app is an alpha and the easiest way to install will be Play Market Alpha version. To get access to the alpha, you should:

  1. Join Google Plus Group (needed to access in play market alpha page)
  3. (refresh multiple times, maybe not allowed due delay in Google)


Please send a email to [email protected] with Subject: Invite me to GHubber TestFlight and your email, firstname, lastname.

Note: Be sure to incude the email you use for iTunes.


Before we start to develop app you should configure your env:


  1. You should install NodeJS with NPM

OSX by brew:

brew install nodejs

Debian and Ubuntu:

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
  1. Now you should install dependencies by NPM, inside project directory run:
npm install

If you have another OS


  1. You should download and install Android Studio
  2. Run Android Studio and download default SDKs, don't forget to configure path(s)
export ANDROID_HOME=/Users/<user>/Library/Android/sdk
export PATH=$ANDROID_HOME/platform-tools:$PATH
  1. Run emulator:

Way 1: Built-in Android emulator, use KVM on linux if it's installed for acceleration

Note: KVM and VirtualBox supposedly cannot coexist, or rather, VirtualBox won't run while the KVM modules are loaded in memory

The easy way will be to create a new device inside Android Studio, press run

Way 2: Genymotion is a cool emulator, it runs on VirtualBox

Run it, you will see ;)

Way 3: Run on real device (I didn't use this method for development, and I don't recommend it)

First you should enable Developer menu on Android, Google it or try:

  1. Go to the settings menu, and scroll down to "About phone." Tap it.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom again, where you see "Build number." (Your build number may vary from our's here.)
  3. Tap it seven (7) times. After the third tap, you'll see a playful dialog that says you're four taps away from being a developer. (If only it were that simple, eh?) Keep on tapping, and poof, you've got the developer settings back.


Note: Sorry, but for build iOS you should have macOS

It's pretty easy, you should install XCode by AppStore :+1:

Lets run ;)

Way 1

You should open 2 terminals

Inside second you should write:

npm run start

Inside first:


npm run android


npm run ios

Way 2

Or just run npm run start:android or npm run start:ios depending on the platform :smile:
