              rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/react-native-paged-contacts/android/')
    • Update dependencies in build.gradle.

      dependencies {
          compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
          compile project(':pagedcontacts')  // <— Add this

    Usage

    Import the library and create a new PagedContacts instance.

    import {PagedContacts} from 'react-native-paged-contacts';
    let pg = new PagedContacts();

    First request authorization, and, if granted, request the contacts. (iOS only)

    pg.requestAccess().then((granted) => {
      if(granted !== true)
      {
        return; 
      }
     
      pg.getContactsCount().then( (count) => {
        pg.getContactsWithRange(0, count, [PagedContacts.displayName, PagedContacts.thumbnailImageData, PagedContacts.phoneNumbers, PagedContacts.emailAddresses]).then((contacts) => {
          //Use contacts here
        });
      });
    });

    This is a very intensive way of obtaining specific keys of all contacts. Instead, use the paging mechanism to obtain contacts within a range, and only request keys you need.
