react-native-jitsi-meet

React native wrapper for Jitsi Meet SDK

Install

npm install react-native-jitsi-meet --save

If you are using React-Native < 0.60, you should use a version < 2.0.0.
For versions higher than 2.0.0, you need to add the following piece of code in your metro.config.js file to avoid conflicts between react-native-jitsi-meet and react-native in metro bundler.

const blacklist = require('metro-config/src/defaults/blacklist');

module.exports = {
  resolver: {
    blacklistRE: blacklist([
      /ios\/Pods\/JitsiMeetSDK\/Frameworks\/JitsiMeet.framework\/assets\/node_modules\/react-native\/.*/,
    ]),
  },
};

Although most of the process is automated, you still have to follow the platform install guide below (iOS and Android) to get this library to work.

Use (>= 2.0.0)

The following component is an example of use:

import React, { useEffect } from 'react';
import { View } from 'react-native';
import JitsiMeet, { JitsiMeetView } from 'react-native-jitsi-meet';

const VideoCall = () => {
  const onConferenceTerminated = (nativeEvent) => {
    /* Conference terminated event */
  }

  const onConferenceJoined = (nativeEvent) => {
    /* Conference joined event */
  }

  const onConferenceWillJoin= (nativeEvent) => {
    /* Conference will join event */
  }

  useEffect(() => {
    setTimeout(() => {
      const url = 'https://meet.jit.si/deneme'; // can also be only room name and will connect to jitsi meet servers
      const userInfo = { displayName: 'User', email: 'user@example.com', avatar: 'https:/gravatar.com/avatar/abc123' };
      JitsiMeet.call(url, userInfo);
      /* You can also use JitsiMeet.audioCall(url) for audio only call */
      /* You can programmatically end the call with JitsiMeet.endCall() */
    }, 1000);
  }, [])

  return (
    <View style={{ backgroundColor: 'black', flex: 1 }}>
      <JitsiMeetView onConferenceTerminated={onConferenceTerminated} onConferenceJoined={onConferenceJoined} onConferenceWillJoin={onConferenceWillJoin} style={{ flex: 1, height: '100%', width: '100%' }} />
    </View>
  )
}

export default VideoCall;

You can also check the ExampleApp

Events

You can add listeners for the following events:

  • onConferenceJoined
  • onConferenceTerminated
  • onConferenceWillJoin

Use (< 2.0.0 and RN<0.60)

In your component,

1.) import JitsiMeet and JitsiMeetEvents: import JitsiMeet, { JitsiMeetEvents } from 'react-native-jitsi-meet';

2.) add the following code:

  const initiateVideoCall = () => {
    JitsiMeet.initialize();
    JitsiMeetEvents.addListener('CONFERENCE_LEFT', (data) => {
      console.log('CONFERENCE_LEFT');
    });
    setTimeout(() => {
      JitsiMeet.call(`<your url>`);
    }, 1000);
  };

Events

You can add listeners for the following events:

  • CONFERENCE_JOINED
  • CONFERENCE_LEFT
  • CONFERENCE_WILL_JOIN

iOS Configuration

1.) navigate to <ProjectFolder>/ios/<ProjectName>/
2.) edit Info.plist and add the following lines

<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
<string>Camera Permission</string>
<key>NSMicrophoneUsageDescription</key>
<string>Microphone Permission</string>

3.) in Info.plist, make sure that

<key>UIBackgroundModes</key>
<array>
</array>

contains <string>voip</string>

iOS Install for RN >= 0.60

1.) Modify your Podfile to have platform :ios, '10.0' and execute pod install
2.) In Xcode, under Build setting set Enable Bitcode to No

iOS Install for RN < 0.60

Step 1. Add Files Into Project

  • 1-1.) in Xcode: Right click LibrariesAdd Files to [project]
  • 1-2.) choose node_modules/react-native-jitsi-meet/ios/RNJitsiMeet.xcodeproj then Add
  • 1-3.) add node_modules/react-native-jitsi-meet/ios/WebRTC.framework and node_modules/react-native-jitsi-meet/ios/JitsiMeet.framework to the Frameworks folder
  • 1-4.) add node_modules/react-native-jitsi-meet/ios/JitsiMeet.storyboard in the same folder as AppDelegate.m
  • 1-5.) Replace the following code in AppDelegate.m:
  UIViewController *rootViewController = [UIViewController new];
  rootViewController.view = rootView;
  self.window.rootViewController = rootViewController;

with this one

  UIViewController *rootViewController = [UIViewController new];
  UINavigationController *navigationController = [[UINavigationController alloc]initWithRootViewController:rootViewController];
  navigationController.navigationBarHidden = YES;
  rootViewController.view = rootView;
  self.window.rootViewController = navigationController; 

This will create a navigation controller to be able to navigate between the Jitsi component and your react native screens.

Step 2. Add Library Search Path

2-1.) select Build Settings, find Search Paths
2-2.) edit BOTH Framework Search Paths and Library Search Paths
2-3.) add path on BOTH sections with: $(SRCROOT)/../node_modules/react-native-jitsi-meet/ios with recursive

Step 3. Change General Setting and Embed Framework

3-1.) go to General tab
3-2.) change Deployment Target to 8.0
3-3.) add WebRTC.framework and JitsiMeet.framework in Embedded Binaries

Step 4. Link/Include Necessary Libraries

  • 4-1.) click Build Phases tab, open Link Binary With Libraries
  • 4-2.) add libRNJitsiMeet.a
  • 4-3.) make sure WebRTC.framework and JitsiMeet.framework linked
  • 4-4.) add the following libraries depending on your version of XCode, some libraries might exist or not:
AVFoundation.framework
AudioToolbox.framework
CoreGraphics.framework
GLKit.framework
CoreAudio.framework
CoreVideo.framework
VideoToolbox.framework
libc.tbd
libsqlite3.tbd
libstdc++.tbd
libc++.tbd
  • 4-5.) Under Build setting set Dead Code Stripping to No, set Enable Bitcode to No and Always Embed Swift Standard Libraries to Yes
  • 4-6.) Add the following script in a new "Run Script" phase in "Build Phases":
echo "Target architectures: $ARCHS"

APP_PATH="${TARGET_BUILD_DIR}/${WRAPPER_NAME}"

find "$APP_PATH" -name '*.framework' -type d | while read -r FRAMEWORK
do
FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_NAME=$(defaults read "$FRAMEWORK/Info.plist" CFBundleExecutable)
FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH="$FRAMEWORK/$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_NAME"
echo "Executable is $FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH"
echo $(lipo -info "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH")

FRAMEWORK_TMP_PATH="$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH-tmp"

# remove simulator's archs if location is not simulator's directory
case "${TARGET_BUILD_DIR}" in
*"iphonesimulator")
echo "No need to remove archs"
;;
*)
if $(lipo "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH" -verify_arch "i386") ; then
lipo -output "$FRAMEWORK_TMP_PATH" -remove "i386" "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH"
echo "i386 architecture removed"
rm "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH"
mv "$FRAMEWORK_TMP_PATH" "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH"
fi
if $(lipo "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH" -verify_arch "x86_64") ; then
lipo -output "$FRAMEWORK_TMP_PATH" -remove "x86_64" "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH"
echo "x86_64 architecture removed"
rm "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH"
mv "$FRAMEWORK_TMP_PATH" "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH"
fi
;;
esac

echo "Completed for executable $FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH"
echo $

done

This will run a script everytime you build to clean the unwanted architecture

...
    @Override
    protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
      return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
        new MainReactPackage(),
        new RNJitsiMeetPackage()                  // <--- Add this line
      );
    }

Side-note

If your app already includes react-native-locale-detector or react-native-vector-icons, you must exclude them from the react-native-jitsi-meet project implementation with the following code (even if you're app uses autolinking with RN > 0.60):

    implementation(project(':react-native-jitsi-meet')) {
      exclude group: 'com.facebook.react',module:'react-native-locale-detector'
      exclude group: 'com.facebook.react',module:'react-native-vector-icons'
      // Un-comment below if using hermes
      //exclude group: 'com.facebook',module:'hermes'
      // Un-comment any packages below that you have added to your project to prevent `duplicate_classes` errors
      //exclude group: 'com.facebook.react',module:'react-native-community-async-storage'
      //exclude group: 'com.facebook.react',module:'react-native-community_netinfo'
      //exclude group: 'com.facebook.react',module:'react-native-svg'
      //exclude group: 'com.facebook.react',module:'react-native-fetch-blob'
      //exclude group: 'com.facebook.react',module:'react-native-webview'
      //exclude group: 'com.facebook.react',module:'react-native-linear-gradient'
      //exclude group: 'com.facebook.react',module:'react-native-sound'
    }
