    react-native-create-guid

    Minimal library to create Guids in React Native. It uses the native implementations to generate one and send it over to JS.

    Why?

    When faced with the problem of generating a GUID in React Native, I found that there were no current good solutions. Relying on Math.random didn't seem like a good idea, and the other alternatives found like react-native-uuid that are just ports of node.js libraries (needed to install other libraries buffer).

    Since native platforms already have ways to create GUIDs that are useful, creating a simple native library would be enough to use them in React-Native.

    Getting started

    $ npm install react-native-create-guid --save

    Mostly automatic installation

    RN < 0.60:

    $ react-native link react-native-create-guid

    RN >= 0.60:

    $ cd ios && pod install

    Manual installation

    iOS

    1. In XCode, in the project navigator, right click LibrariesAdd Files to [your project's name]
    2. Go to node_modulesreact-native-create-guid and add CreateGuid.xcodeproj
    3. In XCode, in the project navigator, select your project. Add libCreateGuid.a to your project's Build PhasesLink Binary With Libraries
    4. Run your project (Cmd+R)<

    Android

    1. Open up android/app/src/main/java/[...]/MainApplication.java
    • Add import com.reactnative.createguid.CreateGuidPackage; to the imports at the top of the file
    • Add new CreateGuidPackage() to the list returned by the getPackages() method
    1. Append the following lines to android/settings.gradle:
      include ':react-native-create-guid'
      project(':react-native-create-guid').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, 	'../node_modules/react-native-create-guid/android')
      
    2. Insert the following lines inside the dependencies block in android/app/build.gradle:
        compile project(':react-native-create-guid')
      

    Usage

    Check the example under example folder for it's usage.

    import createGuid from "react-native-create-guid";
     
    // in an async function;
    const guid = await createGuid();
     
    // using promises
    createGuid().then((guid) => console.log(guid));
