    Expose iPad mouse & track pads interactions to React Native

    Ref: https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/ios/user-interaction/pointers/


    Getting started

    Mostly automatic installation

    1. Install the library

    npm install @thefunbots/react-native-pointer-interactions --save

    2. (Optional) Install react-native-swift

    If you are not already using any other swift based modules in your app, install and run react-native-swift to configure your iOS project to support swift.

    Install react-native-swift

    npm install --save react-native-swift

    After installing it, you will need to link it. Requires project to use Swift 5.0 and iOS SDK 13.4+

    Manual installation


    1. In XCode, in the project navigator, right click LibrariesAdd Files to [your project's name]
    2. Go to node_modulesreact-native-pointer-interactions and add RNPointerInteractions.xcodeproj
    3. In XCode, in the project navigator, select your project. Add libRNPointerInteractions.a to your project's Build PhasesLink Binary With Libraries

    Basic usage

    Wrap the views you want to be interactable in PointerInteractionView

    import { PointerInteractionView } from '@thefunbots/react-native-pointer-interactions';
    <PointerInteractionView pointerMode="lift">

    Using the High Order Component



    The component extends the regular View, so you can use the common properties too.

    Prop Description
    pointerMode [automatic, lift, highlight, hover, verticalBeam, horizontalBeam]
    beamLength Sets the cursor size for Beam modes only


    If you want to play with the API but don't feel like trying it on a real app, you can run the example project. Clone the repo, go to the example/ folder and run:

    npm install

    If you are running on ios, run pod install in the ios folder

    Run react-native start to start the metro bundler

    Run react-native run-ios (depending on which platform you want to run the example app on).

    You will need to have an iOS device or emulator connected as well as react-native-cli package installed globally.


    • It doesn't work when wrapping react-native-gesture-handler buttons
