Usage

Simple Portal

This is the very simple usage of this library, where you will teleport your content to the PortalProvider layer of the app.

First, you will need to add PortalProvider to your root component - this usually be the App.tsx.

export const App = () => (
  <PortalProvider>
  {... your app goes here}
  </PortalProvider>
);

Last, you wrap the content that you want to teleport with Portal.

const BasicScreen = () => {
  return (
    { ... }
    <Portal>
      <Text>
        Text to be teleported to the root host
      </Text>
    </Portal>
    { ... }
  );
};

Custom Portal Host

This is when you need to teleport your content to a custom portal host PortalHost at any layer in the app.

First, you will need to add PortalProvider to your root component - this usually be the App.tsx.

export const App = () => (
  <PortalProvider>
  {... your app goes here ...}
  </PortalProvider>
);

Second, you will need to add PortalHost at any layer in your app, with a custom name.

const CustomView = () => {
  return (
    { ... }
    <PortalHost name="CustomPortalHost" />
    { ... }
  );
};

Last, you wrap the content that you want to teleport with Portal and the custom portal host name.

const BasicScreen = () => {
  return (
    { ... }
    <Portal hostName="CustomPortalHost">
      <Text>
        Text to be teleported to the CustomView component
      </Text>
    </Portal>
    { ... }
  );
};

React Native Screens integration

In order to get your teleported content on top of all native views, you will need to wrap your content with FullWindowOverlay from react-native-screens.

import { FullWindowOverlay } from 'react-native-screens';

const BasicScreen = () => {
  return (
    { ... }
    <Portal>
      <FullWindowOverlay style={StyleSheet.absoluteFill}>
        <Text>
          Text to be teleported to the CustomView component
        </Text>
      </FullWindowOverlay>
    </Portal>
    { ... }
  );
};

React Native Gesture Handler

To avoid issues when using the React Native Portal with React Native Gesture Handler, you must place the PortalProvider under the GestureHandlerRootView, otherwise it might freeze your app.

export const App = () => (
  <GestureHandlerRootView>
    <PortalProvider>
    {... your app goes here}
    </PortalProvider>
  </GestureHandlerRootView>
);
