0.0.5 • Public • Published


React native library to show text in a condensed way and expand when needed. Can be used with native or expo on all platforms.

Why another library ?

This package is different from regular see more/less components available out there. It's smart enough to calculate where to position See more within the same paragraph instead of occupying another line. It is a drop-in replacement for Text component and you can control when to apply the see more functionality by configuring the numberOfLines prop. Moreover, you can also pass your own custom implementation of Text component like ParsedText etc.

const App = () => {
  return (
    <View style={styles.root}>
        {`Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.`}

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  root: {
    flex: 1,
    padding: 16,
    marginTop: 48,

export default App;
