Material Design "Snackbar" component for Android and iOS.

Snackbar screenshot

Snackbars are used for displaying a brief message to the user, along with an optional action. They animate up from the bottom of the screen and then disappear shortly afterward.

See Google's Material Design guidelines for more info on Snackbars and when to use them.

How it works{
  title: 'Hello world',
  duration: Snackbar.LENGTH_SHORT,

Or, to include an action button:{
  title: 'Hello world',
  duration: Snackbar.LENGTH_INDEFINITE,
  action: {
    title: 'UNDO',
    color: 'green',
    onPress: () => { /* Do something. */ },


  1. Install:

    • Using npm: npm install react-native-snackbar --save
    • Using Yarn: yarn add react-native-snackbar
  2. Link:

    • react-native link react-native-snackbar
    • Or if that fails, link manually using these steps
  3. Import it in your JS:

    import Snackbar from 'react-native-snackbar';

Customization accepts the following options:

Key Data type Default value? Description
title string Required. The message to show.
duration See below Snackbar.LENGTH_SHORT How long to display the Snackbar.
action object (described below) undefined (no button) Optional config for the action button (described below).

Where duration can be one of the following (timing may vary based on device):

  • Snackbar.LENGTH_SHORT (just over a second)
  • Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG (about three seconds)
  • Snackbar.LENGTH_INDEFINITE (stays on screen until the button is pressed)

And the optional action object can contain the following options:

Key Data type Default value? Description
title string Required. The text to show on the button.
onPress function undefined (Snackbar is simply dismissed) A callback for when the user taps the button.
color string or style undefined (natively renders as white) The text color for the button.
