Simple and fully customizable walkthrough guide for your app!

Create amazing guides to help new users discovering your masterpiece 😉


React-Native-Walkthrough is a library I started working on 6 month ago when I had spare time. I chose to develop it because I was looking for an easy to setup and highly customizable library to guide new users on my apps.

As you can see on the demo, the component stays inside the parent we gave him. Also, everything is dynamically computed to allow an accurate placement of the spotlight or the tooltip.

yarn add react-native-wlkt

Getting Started


Step 1 : Place the component Walkthrough wherever you want the tutorial to be.

TIPS: Usually it is better to put it at the root of your app 😏

import { Walkthrough } from 'react-native-wlkt';


const App = () => {
  return (
      <Walkthrough />

Congratulations, you've finished setting up react-native-wlkt 🎉

That wasn't so hard, was it?


Step 1 : Register the components to be displayed in your interactive guide by encapsulating them in WalkthroughComponent.

import { WalkthroughComponent } from 'react-native-wlkt';


const HomeScreen = () => {
  return (
      <WalkthroughComponent id="textRnwlkt">

TIPS: When registering components, use an id coherent with the component being registered, it will help when creating scenarios 😎

NOTE: WalkthroughComponent works with the basic React Native components, if your component is not registered, try to encapsulate it in a View component

import { WalkthroughComponent } from 'react-native-wlkt';


const HomeScreen = () => {
  return (
      <WalkthroughComponent id="buttonRnwlkt">
            onPress={() => {

Step 2 : Create your scenario.

const myAmazingScenario = [
    component: 'textRnwlkt',
    tooltipOptions: {
      content: 'I am a TEXT element'
    component: 'buttonRnwlkt',
    tooltipOptions: {
      content: 'I am a BUTTON element'

Step 3 : Start the tutorial with startWalkthrough.

import { ..., startWalkthrough } from 'react-native-wlkt';


const HomeScreen = () => {
  return (
        onPress={() => {
          startWalkthrough({ scenario: myAmazingScenario })

Okay, everything is setup now 🔥

You can find everything we did so far in examples/Example.js.
