Manual iOS Installation

Importing The Library

  • Drag the file RCTRestart.xcodeproj from /node_modules/react-native-restart/ios into the Libraries group in the Project navigator. Ensure that Copy items if needed is UNCHECKED!

Add Files To...

Library Imported Successfully

  • Ensure that libRCTRestart.a is linked through Link Binary With Libraries on Build Phases:

Library Linked

  • Ensure that Header Search Paths on Build Settings has the path $(SRCROOT)/../node_modules/react-native-restart set to recursive:

  • You're All Set!

CocoaPod iOS Installation

In your ios/Podfile make sure to use RCTRestart from the local node_modules/. With that, only your project Pod needs to be linked and no extra configuration is required:

target 'MyReactApp' do
  # Make sure you're also using React-Native from ../node_modules 
  pod 'React', :path => '../node_modules/react-native', :subspecs => [
    'Core',
    'RCTActionSheet',
    # ... whatever else you use 
  ]
  # React-Native dependencies such as yoga: 
  pod 'yoga', path: '../node_modules/react-native/ReactCommon/yoga'
 
  # The following line uses RCTRestart, linking with 
  # the library and setting the Header Search Paths for you 
  pod 'RCTRestart', :path => '../node_modules/react-native-restart/ios'
end

Remember to run cd ios && pod install to update files used by Xcode.

Usage

import RNRestart from 'react-native-restart'; // Import package from node modules
 
// Immediately reload the React Native Bundle
RNRestart.Restart();

CREDITS

Thanks to Microsoft CodePush library. I simply extracted the code from their library's logic to reload the React Native Bundle.
