React Native for Web

npm version Build Status PRs Welcome

Compatibility: React Native 0.55.

"React Native for Web" makes it possible to run React Native components and APIs on the web using React DOM. Check out the live demo of the React Native examples running on the web.

  • High-quality web interfaces: makes it easy to create fast, adaptive web UIs in JavaScript. It provides native-quality interactions, support for multiple input modes (touch, mouse, keyboard), optimized vendor-prefixed styles, built-in support for RTL layout, built-in accessibility, and integrates with React Dev Tools.

  • Write once, render anywhere: interoperates with existing React DOM components and is compatible with the majority of the React Native API. You can develop new components for native and web without rewriting existing code. React Native for Web can also render to HTML and critical CSS on the server using Node.js.

Who is using React Native in production web apps? Twitter, Major League Soccer, Flipkart, Playstation, Uber, The Times.

Browser support: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari 7+, IE 10+.

Quick start

The easiest way to get started is to edit this CodeSandbox template (or Glitch). You don’t need to install anything to try it out.

For installation and configuration details please read the getting started guide.


You can find the API documentation on the website.

Please refer to the React Native documentation for more design details, and for information about the Gesture Responder system and animations.



There are examples on the website (source code. And all the React Native examples (source code) are also available. Here is an example to get you started:

import React from 'react';
import { AppRegistry, StyleSheet, Text, View } from 'react-native';

class App extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <View style={}>
        <Text style={styles.text}>Hello, world!</Text>

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  box: { padding: 10 },
  text: { fontWeight: 'bold' }

AppRegistry.registerComponent('App', () => App);
AppRegistry.runApplication('App', { rootTag: document.getElementById('react-root') });

This example will render the App into a container on the page.

You'll notice that there is no reference to react-dom; the App component is defined using the platform-agnostic APIs and Components introduced by React Native. This allows the app to be rendered to web and native platforms.
