Example of Animated Splash Screen in React Native

This is an Example of Animated Splash Screen in React Native.  This example contains the simple splash screen with some animation in which we will show the image first and then the name of the app.

To Make a React Native App

Getting started with React Native will help you to know more about the way you can make a React Native project. We are going to use react-native init to make our React Native App. Assuming that you have node installed, you can use npm to install the react-native-cli command line utility. Open the terminal and go to the workspace and run
npm install -g react-native-cli
Run the following commands to create a new React Native project
react-native init ProjectName
This will make a project structure with an index file named App.js in your project directory.

Now Open App.js in any code editor and replace the code with the following code.


To Run the React Native App

Open the terminal again and jump into your project using.
cd ProjectName
To run the project on an Android Virtual Device or on real debugging device
react-native run-android
or on the iOS Simulator by running
react-native run-ios (macOS only).

This is how you can make an animated splash screen in React Native. If you have any doubt or you want to share something about the topic you can comment below or contact us here. There will be more posts coming soon. Stay tuned!

    I have learnt a lot from your posts which are very useful.
    I am trying to link drawer and splash by createSwitchNavigator by following example,
    but I cannot make it.
    What I have done is to add the following codes to the drawer example:
    const SwitchNavigator = createSwitchNavigator(
    Splash: SplashScreens,
    Drawer: DrawerNavigatorExample,
    initialRouteName: ‘Splash’,

    export default createAppContainer(SwitchNavigator);

    But it just stop after the Splash, I do not what I have done wrong.
