React Native ListViewDataSource

React Native ListViewDataSource

ListView Component has been removed from React Native after React Native 0.59. Please visit FlatList Example.

This is an old example for React Native version< 0.59.

React Native DataSource provides efficient data processing and access to the ListView component. A ListViewDataSource is created with functions for extracting data from the input blob, and comparing elements (with default implementations for convenience). The input blob can be as simple as an array of strings, or an object with rows nested inside section objects.

To Import ListView in code

Prepare DataSource

Render Using

In the example below, we are using free demo APIs. The example has a simple ListView made with LIstViewDataSource. 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.

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).

That was the React Native ListViewDataSource. 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!
