React Native Gesture Handler by Software Mansion

Declarative API exposing platform native touch and gesture system to React Native.

React Native Gesture Handler provides native-driven gesture management APIs for building best possible touch-based experiences in React Native.

With this library gestures are no longer controlled by the JS responder system, but instead are recognized and tracked in the UI thread. It makes touch interactions and gesture tracking not only smooth, but also dependable and deterministic.

Digicard Fork additions/changes

Based on Ver 2.1.0 (Expo SDK44 compatible)

  • Added properties leftStop and rightStop. When opened passing this breakpoint (but before left/rightThreshold) opening stops there when released
  • New getState() method return internal state (dirty hack, I know!)
  • Methods openLeft/openRight accept optional parameter position to perform a partial opening.
  • onSwipeableLeftOpen/onSwipeableRightOpen/onSwipeableOpen now provide argument toValue
  • currentOffset() internal function takes last real position instead of returning full width. This was causing weird animation effect before closing

  yarn install

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

Run yarn start to start the metro bundler

Run yarn android or yarn ios (depending on which platform you want to run the example app on).
