React Navigation is born from the React Native community's need for an extensible yet easy-to-use navigation solution. It replaces and improves upon several navigation libraries in the ecosystem, including Ex-Navigation, React Native's Navigator and NavigationExperimental components. React Navigation can also be used across React and React Native projects allowing for a higher degree of shared code.

Once stable, NavigationExperimental will be deprecated in favor of React Navigation. React Navigation is a collaboration between people from Facebook, Exponent and the React community at large.

Getting started

  1. Create a new React Native App
react-native init SimpleApp
cd SimpleApp
  1. Install the latest version of react-navigation from npm
yarn add react-navigation


npm install --save react-navigation
  1. Run the new app
react-native run-android # or:
react-native run-ios


We have an active channel on the Reactiflux community. It's the best place to show off things you've made with the library, ask for help, or just hang out and discuss the project. This also helps keep the issues manageable.
