Peer Dependencies

This library needs some peer dependencies to work properly. You need to install them in your project.

  • for react-native-cli users:

    1. install peer dependencies:

      yarn add react-native-reanimated @gorhom/portal
    2. For iOS:

      cd ios && pod install
  • for expo users:

expo install react-native-reanimated @gorhom/portal


you first need to wrap your app with PortalProvider from @gorhom/portal to provide a context for the Portal.

import { PortalProvider } from '@gorhom/portal';

const App = () => {
  return (
      <App />

then you can use the Tooltip component

import React from 'react';
import Tooltip from 'react-native-tooltiplize';
import { PortalProvider } from '@gorhom/portal';
import { View, TouchableOpacity, StyleSheet, Text } from 'react-native';

const App = () => {
  const [isVisible, toggle] = React.useReducer((state) => !state, false);

  const renderContent = React.useCallback(() => {
    return (
      <TouchableOpacity style={styles.tooltipContainer} onPress={toggle}>
        <Text style={styles.tooltipText}>
          Welcome to React Native Tooltiplize ?
  }, []);

  return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
          <TouchableOpacity onPress={toggle} style={styles.newFeature}>
            <Text style={styles.newFeatureText}>This is new cool feature</Text>

export default App;

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
  tooltipContainer: {
    paddingHorizontal: 16,
    paddingVertical: 8,
    borderRadius: 8,
    shadowColor: '#000',
    shadowOffset: {
      width: 0,
      height: 2,
    shadowOpacity: 0.1,
    shadowRadius: 12,
    elevation: 5,
    backgroundColor: 'green',
  tooltipText: {
    fontSize: 12,
    color: 'white',
  pointer: { width: 16, height: 8 },
  newFeature: {
    backgroundColor: 'white',
    padding: 16,
    borderRadius: 8,
  newFeatureText: {
    fontSize: 16,
