    Platform Specific Installation Guides

    Getting Started

    Once you’ve set up your development environment, created a new React Native project, and installed the CedarMaps SDK for React Native, you’re ready to initialize a map in your App.js file.

    First, you’ll import the components that you will need. This includes components from React, React Native, and CedarMaps.

    To display a map you’ll need CedarMaps credentials (clientID and clientSecret). CedarMaps uses an access token generated from these to associate requests to API resources with your account.

    Use the CedarMaps Map component, which is basically an extended MapView component, to initialize your map. The Map component will add a map to the view, and you can add props to specify some parameters for the map such as style and camera.

    Here’s a sample code to display a map:

    import React from 'react';
    import {
    } from 'react-native';
    import CedarMaps from '@cedarstudios/react-native-cedarmaps';
    const App: () => React$Node = () => {
      return (
          <StatusBar barStyle="dark-content" />
                centerCoordinate={[51.4093, 35.7546]}
    const styles = StyleSheet.create({
      container: {
        flex: 1
    export default App;

    Other possible values for mapStyle are:

    Vector Tiles (Recommended)

    • style://streets-light
    • style://streets-dark

    Raster Tiles

    • style://streets-light-raster


    CedarMaps SDK is based on Mapbox Maps SDK for React Native v7.0.7.

    CedarMaps Component is basically a wrapper component over MapboxGL with some added stuff. All methods and properties available on MapboxGL are available on CedarMaps as well.


    • getMap(): Getting the map ref object.





    Mapbox has a plethora of examples for different use cases such as Showing User Location, Adding Annotations, etc. You can consult those here.
