    Edge React Native UI

    This repo implements a UI layer on top of edge-core-js to provide React Native applications with secure account management in just a small handful of Javascript API calls.

    Basic usage for react native mobile application

    Edge expects to work with React Native v0.60.0 or greater.

    First, add the Edge libraries to your project:

    yarn add edge-core-js edge-login-ui-rn

    The login UI depends on some extra external native libraries, which you will have to install as well:

    • disklet
    • react-native-linear-gradient v2
    • react-native-localize v2
    • react-native-mail v6
    • react-native-permissions v3
    • react-native-reanimated v2
    • react-native-share v5 (v7 also works)
    • react-native-svg v12
    • react-native-vector-icons v7 (v9 also works)
      • Follow the extra installation steps.
      • We use AntDesign, Entypo, MaterialIcons, FontAwesome, FontAwesome5, and SimpleLineIcons.

    To initialize the Edge core library, your application needs to mount the MakeEdgeContext component and keep it around for the lifetime of the app. This component will create and manage an EdgeContext object.

    You should also wrap your entire application in a LoginUiProvider component, which the login scene needs to display modals, error alerts, and similar floating UI:

    import { MakeEdgeContext } from 'edge-core-js'
    import { LoginUiProvider } from 'edge-login-ui-rn'
    import * as React from 'react'
    export const App = props => {
      // Stores the Edge context:
      const [context, setContext] = React.useState()
      return (
            // Get this from our support team:
            // Called when the core is done loading:
          <MainRouterComponent edgeContext={context} />

    Now, you can show or hide the LoginScreen component on demand as part of your app's navigation:

    import { LoginScreen } from 'edge-login-ui-rn'
    export const MainRouterComponent = props => {
      const { edgeContext } = props
      // Stores the Edge account:
      const [account, setAccount] = React.useState()
      // Once the context is ready, we can show the login screen.
      // Once the user logs in, we can show the main app:
      return edgeContext == null ? (
      ) : account == null ? (
      ) : (
        <YourApp edgeAccount={account} />

    Feel free to replace this MainRouterComponent example with a proper routing library such as react-navigation.

    You can use the account object to create and restore wallet private keys:

    async function getAppPrivateKey (account) {
      // Find the first Ethereum wallet in the account:
      const edgeWalletInfo = account.getFirstWalletInfo('wallet:ethereum')
      // If an Ethereum wallet already exists, return its key:
      if (edgeWalletInfo != null) {
        return edgeWalletInfo.keys.ethereumKey
      // There are no Ethereum wallets, so make one:
      const keys = {
        ethereumKey: new Buffer(secureRandom(32)).toString('hex')
      const walletId = await account.createWallet("wallet:ethereum", keys)
      const edgeWalletInfo = account.walletInfos[walletId]
      return edgeWalletInfo.keys.ethereumKey

    Adding core plugins

    If you want full wallet functionality, with balances, transactions, and so forth, you need to add one or more currency plugins to your app. To do this, first use NPM to install one of our plugin libraries, such as edge-currency-accountbased for Ethereum.

    Each plugin library includes a JavaScript bundle that needs to be integrated into your native application. To do this on Android, add a prepare script to your app's package.json file that copies the file node_modules/edge-currency-accountbased/lib/react-native/edge-currency-accountbased.js into your android/app/src/main/assets/ folder. For iOS, open your App in Xcode and drag the edge-currency-accountbased.js file into the Resources section of your project.

    Finally, you need to tell the Edge core about these plugins. You do this by passing the location of the plugin JS bundle, as well as a config object that specifies which currencies to activate:

        'ethereum': true,
        'eos': false
      // Other properties from earlier...
