Native mobile apps, as easy as creating a website.
Hyperview is a new hypermedia format and React Native client for developing server-driven mobile apps.
- react-native-keyboard-aware-scrollview 2.0.0
This repo contains an example XML server that serves Hyperview XML to showcase the available features.
It also contains a demo Expo project that can connect to the example XML server, or any other Hyperview endpoint.
1. Run the example server
From the repo root directory:
yarn yarn test:xmlserver
This will start an HTTP server listening on port 8085.
2. Start the demo app
In a separate shell, install the demo dependencies and start the development server. From the repo root directory:
cd demo yarn
The next step depends on whether you want to run the demo app in the iOS simulator, on an Android Virtual Device, or on a physical mobile device.
Running on the iOS simulator
This will open the iOS simulator and install the demo app in the simulator. It will then start the Expo development server to load the demo app.
Running on an Android Virtual Device
This will open an AVD and install the demo app in the emulator. It will then start the Expo development server to load the demo app.
Running on a physical device
On your physical mobile device, install the Expo client
Make sure your mobile device and development machine are connected to the same network.
Open /demo/navigation/AppNavigator.js in a text editor. In
initialRouteParams, replace the host in the url (
http://0.0.0.0:8085/index.xml) with the IP of your machine. This is needed in order for your physical device to be able to request the example XML files from your development machine.
demo/ directory on your development machine:
This command will start an Expo development server and open a webpage (http://localhost:19002). This webpage will display a QR code.
- On your iOS device, open the Camera app and point it at the QR code on your screen. The Camera app should show an "Open in Expo" notification. Tap this notification.
- On your Android device, use the Expo app to scan the QR code on your screen.
3. You're all set!
Whether you're using a physical device or simulator, you should now see a Hyperview screen rendered from the example server:
