Check out the Example app


  1. Supports most SVG elements and properties (Rect, Circle, Line, Polyline, Polygon, G ...).
  2. Easy to convert SVG code to react-native-svg.


With expo-cli

The Expo client app comes with the native code installed!

Install the JavaScript with:

expo install react-native-svg

📚 See the Expo docs for more info or jump ahead to Usage.

Problems with Proguard

When Proguard is enabled (which it is by default for Android release builds), it causes runtime error. To avoid this, add an exception to android/app/

-keep public class com.horcrux.svglegacy.** {*;}

If you have build errors, then it might be caused by caching issues, please try:

watchman watch-del-all
rm -fr $TMPDIR/react-*
react-native start --reset-cache


rm -rf node_modules
react-native start --reset-cache

Unexpected behavior

If you have unexpected behavior, please create a clean project with the latest versions of react-native and react-native-svg

react-native init CleanProject
cd CleanProject/
yarn add react-native-svg
cd ios && pod install && cd ..

Make a reproduction of the problem in App.js

react-native run-ios
react-native run-android

Opening issues

Verify that it is still an issue with the latest version as specified in the previous step. If so, open a new issue, include the entire App.js file, specify what platforms you've tested, and the results of running this command:

react-native info

If you suspect that you've found a spec conformance bug, then you can test using your component in a react-native-web project by forking this codesandbox, to see how different browsers render the same content: If any evergreen browser with significant userbase or other svg user agent renders some svg content better, or supports more of the svg and related specs, please open an issue asap.
