React Native Card View using react-native-paper

React Native Paper

Here is an example of React Native Card View using react-native-paper. If you want to explore some more options to make a Card View you can visit our previous post on React Native Card View.

For this example, we are using Card component provided by react-native-paper.  So let’s get started.

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

If you want to start a new project with a specific React Native version, you can use the --version argument:

react-native init ProjectName --version X.XX.X
react-native init ProjectName --version react-native@next

This will make a project structure with an index file named App.js in your project directory.

Installation of Dependencies

Open the terminal and jump into your project using

cd ProjectName

To use Card we need to install react-native-paper and react-native-vector-icons packages. To install these run the following command

npm install react-native-paper --save
npm install react-native-vector-icons --save

These commands will copy all the dependencies into your node_module directory.

Linking of Dependency

After the updation of React Native 0.60, they have introduced autolinking feature means we do not require to link the library but they have also mentioned that some libraries need linking and react-native-vector-icons is one of those cases. So for that, we need to link the library using

react-native link react-native-vector-icons

CocoaPods Installation

Now we need to install pods

cd ios && pod install && cd ..


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


//This is an Example of Card Using react-native-paper
import * as React from 'react';
import { Text, View, StyleSheet, Image } from 'react-native';
import { Card } from 'react-native-paper';

export default class App extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
          <View style={{ alignItems: 'center' }}>
                width: 150,
                height: 150,
          <Text style={styles.paragraph}>
            This is a simple example of Card using "react-native-paper" library

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    justifyContent: 'center',
    paddingTop: 30,
    backgroundColor: '#ecf0f1',
    padding: 8,
  paragraph: {
    margin: 24,
    fontSize: 18,
    fontWeight: 'bold',
    textAlign: 'center',

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).
