    Getting started


    To start using GetSocial, you have to create a free account and login to GetSocial Dashboard. Dashboard provides a web interface to manage all GetSocial services.

    Install React Native package

    1. Run npm install getsocial-react-native-sdk --save in your app's root folder.

    Configure GetSocial SDK


    To start using GetSocial, you have to add and configure GetSocial Gradle Plugin to your Android project. Plugin adds all GetSocial dependencies to the project and configures AndroidManifest.xml.

    To add GetSocial Gradle plugin:

    1. Add repository and classpath dependency for the plugin in your top-level build.gradle. This file is for the entire project so it will be used for global project configurations:

      buildscript {
          repositories {
              maven {
                  url ""
          dependencies {
              classpath "im.getsocial:plugin-v7:[1,2)"
    2. In the Android application project build.gradle (this file is the module build file, so it will be used for specific module level configs) apply im.getsocial plugin after plugin:

      apply plugin: ''
      apply plugin: 'im.getsocial' // should be applied after plugin
    3. In the same build.gradle configure GetSocial plugin with GetSocial App id:

      getsocial {
          appId "put-your-getsocial-app-id-here"

    Check the GetSocial Gradle plugin reference for the full list of available configurations.


    To start using GetSocial, you have to add and configure GetSocial installer script to your Xcode project. The script adds GetSocial frameworks to the project and configures app entitlements, plist files, and Xcode project settings.

    To add GetSocial installer script:

    1. Run pod install to update dependencies.

    2. In your Xcode project go to Project Settings --> select target you want to modify --> Build Phases tab.

    3. Create new Run Script phase with the content:

      "$PROJECT_DIR/" --app-id="your-getsocial-app-id"
    4. Move Run Script phase before the Compile Sources phase.

    5. Build your project.

    !!! tip "Project Backups" GetSocial installer script creates a backup of your project.pbxproj file every time it is executed. If something goes wrong, you can always roll back to the previous version.

    !!! tip "Source Control Configuration" We suggest adding .backup files under .xcodeproj to ignore list to keep your version control history clean.

    Start Using GetSocial

    GetSocial UI

    At this point, you should be able to start using GetSocial.

    GetSocial UI library contains easy to customize views for all GetSocial features, e.g. code below will create and show GetSocial Smart Invites view:

    import {GetSocialUI, InvitesView} from 'getsocial-react-native-sdk';

    SDK Initialization

    GetSocial SDK is auto-initialized, just provide a GetSocial App Id in the Gradle plugin on Android, or as a parameter to the iOS Installer Script on iOS, and we will do the magic.

    If you want to be notified about initialization complete, you can register a listener, which will be invoked when SDK gets initialized or invoked immediately if it is already initialized:

    import {GetSocial} from 'getsocial-react-native-sdk';
    GetSocial.addOnInitializedListener(() => {
        // GetSocial SDK is ready to use

    Send your first invite

    import {Invites} from 'getsocial-react-native-sdk';
    Invites.send(nil, "email", () => {
        console.log('Invitation via email was sent');
    }, () => {
        console.log('Invitation via email was cancelled');
    }, (error) => {
        console.log('Failed to send invitation via email failed, error: ' + error.message);


    npm i getsocial-react-native-sdk
