          [[UIApplication sharedApplication] cancelLocalNotification:notification];
  • Add Alarm.caf and Silence.caf to the Resources folder of your xcode project. (can be found in react-native-local-notifications/ios/RNLocalNotifications)


  • In the AndroidManifest.xml file of your android studio project add:
    <receiver android:process=":remote" android:name="com.github.wumke.RNLocalNotifications.AlarmReceiver" android:exported="true"></receiver>
  • In the MainActivity.java file of your android studio project add:
        public void onResume() {
            NotificationManager nMgr = (NotificationManager) getSystemService(Context.NOTIFICATION_SERVICE);
  • In the settings.gradle
      include ':react-native-local-notifications', ':app'
      project(':react-native-local-notifications').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/react-native-local-notifications/android')
  • In the build.gradle
      compile project(':react-native-local-notifications')
  • In MainApplication.java
      import com.github.wumke.RNLocalNotifications.RNLocalNotificationsPackage;
      protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
        return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
          new RNLocalNotificationsPackage(),



import RNLocalNotifications from 'react-native-local-notifications';
//RNLocalNotifications.setAndroidIcons(largeIconName, largeIconType, smallIconName, smallIconType);
RNLocalNotifications.setAndroidIcons("ic_launcher", "mipmap", "notification_small", "drawable"); //this are the default values, this function is optional

//RNLocalNotifications.createNotification(id, text, datetime, sound[, hiddendata]);
RNLocalNotifications.createNotification(1, 'Some text', '2017-01-02 12:30', 'default');

//RNLocalNotifications.updateNotification(id, text, datetime, sound[, hiddendata]);
RNLocalNotifications.updateNotification(1, 'Some modifications to text', '2017-01-02 12:35', 'silence');


Parameter explanation:

  • id (Integer): Unique value to be able to edit or cancel scheduled notifications.
  • text (String): The message text.
  • datetime (String): The date + time to show the notification, as a string in the format 'yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm'.
  • sound (String): Which sound is played: '' or 'silence' for vibration only, 'default' for system alarm sound, custom sound namefor self added ringtones.
  • hiddendata (String): Invisible data that can be used to perform custom actions when the mobile app is opened by clicking on the local notification.

Add custom sounds:

Convert your ringtone to .caf and .mp3 file formats.

iOS: Add yoursound.caf to the Resources folder of your xcode project.
Android: Add yoursound.mp3 to the 'raw' folder

Use 'yoursound' as string for the sound parameter.

Hidden/extra data:

When you need to include custom, non-visible, data (for example object id's) to your notifications provide the optional 'hiddendata' parameter to createNotification/updateNotification.

The value will be available as hiddendata (Android) or userData.hiddendata (iOS) when you click the notification.

Note that 'hiddendata' must be a string, so if you want to include json objects you need to encode/decode the data yourself.
