React Native View

React Native View

In this post, you will see the React Native View – Most Basic Component For Building a UI. A view is a container which is used to hold multiple components. Views are designed to be used with StyleSheet for clarity and performance, inline styles are also supported like CSS. Whenever you have more than two components in your class (Which is your own component) you need to enclose them inside <View></View>

To Import View in the Code

import { View } from 'react-native'

Render Using

<View> Put all your components between this view component </View>

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.


//This is an example code to understand View

//import React in our code
import React from 'react';
//import all the components we are going to use
import {View, Text, SafeAreaView} from 'react-native';

const App = () => {
  return (
    // enclose all components in this View tag
        <Text>All the very best</Text> 
        <Text>This is your first App.</Text>
        <Text>Enjoy react native coding.</Text>

export default App;

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 (macOS only)

react-native run-ios
