    Migrating from the core react-native module

    This module was created when the Slider was split out from the core of React Native.
    To migrate to this module you need to follow the installation instructions above and then change you imports from:

    import { Slider } from 'react-native';


    import Slider from '@react-native-community/slider';

    Roadmap and Progress

    There's a Project board available here which contains all reported issues organized into columns regarding their status.

    If you are interested in knowing whether the issue you reported is handled or just to check the status of a feature you would like to have in Slider, please check the board.


    The main package implementation is done in the package/ directory. So when implementing changes there, make sure your code passes ESLint and the tests. Run the following to verify:

    cd package/
    npm run lint
    npm run test
    • Remember to cover your changes with tests if possible.

    When creating an issue please remember to specify the platform which the issue occurs on.

    Running the example app

    While developing, you can run the example app to test your changes.


    • Clone the repository
    • Run npm install in the root directory to install dependencies.
    • Run npm run example-<platform>, where platform can be: ios, android, windows

    You can also do this manually by:

    • Installing node modules for example app
    • Installing pods for iOS app
    • Running example app like always: npx react-native run-<platform>

    New architecture setup (Fabric)

    In order to use the new architecture some extra steps are needed.


    • Install pods with new arch flag inside example/ios folder: RCT_NEW_ARCH_ENABLED=1 pod install
    • Run npm run example-ios


    • Set newArchEnabled to true inside example/android/
    • Run npm run example-android
    If you are using React Native version lower than 0.70, you need to setup manual linking for Android to work.

    Inside example/android/app/src/main/jni/ add these lines:

    + include $(NODE_MODULES_DIR)/@react-native-community/slider/android/build/generated/source/codegen/jni/
    include $(CLEAR_VARS)
        libreact_codegen_rncore \
    +   libreact_codegen_ReactSlider \
        libreact_debug \

    Inside example/android/app/src/main/jni/MainComponentsRegistry.cpp update these lines:

    #include <react/renderer/components/rncore/ComponentDescriptors.h>
    + #include <react/renderer/components/ReactSlider/ComponentDescriptors.h>
    MainComponentsRegistry::sharedProviderRegistry() {
      auto providerRegistry = CoreComponentsRegistry::sharedProviderRegistry();
      // Custom Fabric Components go here. You can register custom
      // components coming from your App or from 3rd party libraries here.
      // providerRegistry->add(concreteComponentDescriptorProvider<
      //        AocViewerComponentDescriptor>());
    + providerRegistry->add(concreteComponentDescriptorProvider<RNCSliderComponentDescriptor>());
      return providerRegistry;
