React Native Design System is a set of design rules and component library that lets you prototype faster with easy to use cross-platform components. Let's get started!

📄 Documentation


Simply go to the command line and run this command.

yarn add react-native-design-system

This library needs react-native-vector-icons so go on and install that too to get all the cool icons. Check out Install guide.


React Native Design System uses a centralized theme to provide consistency across all the components.

Step 1. Import ThemeProvider and theme then wrap your root component

This step is important. We are passing theme as context value that each component will access.

//your root component
import {ThemeProvider, theme} from 'react-native-design-system';

function App() {
  return (
    <ThemeProvider theme={theme} colorMode="light">
      <Root />

Step 2. Use component

//inside any file
import {Button} from 'react-native-design-system';

function HomeScreen() {
  return <Button>Press Me</Button>;

That's pretty much it. theme file contains configuration for all the components. Don't worry, you can easily customize it. Let me show how:


You just need to import theme, reassign the value you want to change and pass it to ThemeProvider. Example:
Default primary color is blue but you like orange so you can simply do:

import {ThemeProvider, theme} from 'react-native-design-system';

theme.colors.primary = 'orange';

function App() {
  return (
    <ThemeProvider theme={theme} colorMode="light">
      <Root />

And we are done!

You can see all the configurations available on the theme page.

If you have a lot of customizations

This is just a personal approach, you can do as you prefer. What I usually do is create a theme.config.js file and add all my customizations there.

//theme.config.js at root
import {theme} from 'react-native-design-system';

theme.colors.dark = {
  bg: {
    '100': '#fff',
    '200': '#f8f8f8',
    '300': '#f4f4f4',
  heading: '#000',
  para: '#999',
  subtle: '#333',
  disabled: '#78909c',
  disabledText: '#78907c',

export default theme;

Now, I will just import theme from here and pass it to my ThemeProvider.

import {ThemeProvider} from 'react-native-design-system';
import theme from './theme.config.js';

function App() {
  return (
    <ThemeProvider theme={theme}>
      <Root />

Please make sure to pass all the keys while reassigning any object inside the theme.
