React Native Confetti Cannon

This is an example to make a Gift Card Screen using react-native-confetti-cannon for Android and IOS devices. You can create any types of screens using react-native-confetti-cannon. You have seen this type of animations whenever you got a gift voucher or any cashback amount. Have a look at the sample code and comment below with more suggestions and amazing idea which can be done using Confetti Cannon.:)

In this example, we will see how to create a Gift Card Screen using react-native-confetti-cannon. So let’s get started.

Import ConfettiCannon using

import ConfettiCannon from 'react-native-confetti-cannon';

To Show ConfettiCannon

  origin={{ x: -10, y: 0 }} 

For this example, we will create a gift card using Basic View and Text Component provided by React Native. We have created a state shoot which will decide the fire of Confetti Cannon.

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 Dependency

To use ConfettiCannon component we need to install react-native-confetti-cannon dependency.

To install this open the terminal and jump into your project using

cd ProjectName

Run the following command to install

npm install react-native-confetti-cannon --save

This command will copy all the dependency into your node_module directory.

–save is optional, it is just to update the react-native-confetti-cannon dependency in your package.json file.


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


/*Example of Gift Card Screen with react-native-confetti-cannon*/
import * as React from 'react';
//import React
import { Text, View, StyleSheet, Image, Button } from 'react-native';
//import Basic React Native Component
import ConfettiCannon from 'react-native-confetti-cannon';
//Import Library to make a cannon

export default class App extends React.Component {
  constructor() {
    this.state = {
      //defalt false and if tru cannon will be fired
      shoot: false,
  componentDidMount() {
    //Time out to fire the cannon
    setTimeout(() => {
      this.setState({ shoot: true });
    }, 1000);
  _handlePress() {
    //To fire the cannon again. You can make your own logic here
    this.setState({ shoot: false });
    setTimeout(() => {
      this.setState({ shoot: true });
    }, 500);
  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
        {/*Card to show the Gift*/}
        <View style={styles.card}>
          <Text style={styles.paragraphHeading}>Congrates !!</Text>
          <View style={{ backgroundColor: 'grey', width: '100%', height: 1 }} />
          <Text style={styles.paragraph}>You got a Cashback</Text>
              uri: '',
          <Text style={styles.textLarge}>$22.22</Text>
              marginTop: 20,
              backgroundColor: 'green',
              width: '100%',
                color: 'white',
                fontSize: 18,
                padding: 10,
                textAlign: 'center',
              onPress={() => this._handlePress()}>
        {/*Cannon which will fire whenever shoot is true*/}
        {this.state.shoot ? (
          <ConfettiCannon count={200} origin={{ x: -10, y: 0 }} />
        ) : null}
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    justifyContent: 'center',
    paddingTop: 30,
    backgroundColor: '#ecf0f1',
    padding: 12,
  card: {
    alignItems: 'center',
    justifyContent: 'center',
    padding: 24,
    backgroundColor: 'white',
  textLarge: {
    margin: 24,
    fontSize: 40,
    fontWeight: 'bold',
    textAlign: 'center',
    color: 'green',
  paragraphHeading: {
    margin: 24,
    fontSize: 20,
    fontWeight: 'bold',
    textAlign: 'center',
    color: 'green',
  paragraph: {
    margin: 24,
    fontSize: 18,
    textAlign: 'center',
  logo: {
    height: 84,
    width: 84,

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
