Getting Started

This page will help you install and integrate AppFriends into your ReactNative app.

Install via NPM

You can install the library using npm:

$ npm install react-native-app-friends-library --save

iOS integration

For iOS, we need to install the AppFriends Native library as a dependency using Cocoapod. Please go to your iOS folder at {your project folder}/ios, and run:

$ pod init

Then inside the Podfile, add:

pod 'AppFriendsUI', :git => '', :branch => ‘swift4_0’
pod 'AppFriendsCore', :git => '', :branch => ‘swift4_0’
pod 'CoreStore', :git => '', :branch => 'prototype/Swift_4_0’

Then run pod install. This will create a workspace file {yourproject}.xcworkspace. Please use the workspace file to open your iOS project from now on. The last step is linking the library:

`$ react-native link react-native-app-friends-library`

Android Integration

For Android, the native AppFriends Core library is a required dependency. Add the following to your application's build.gradle file:

repositories {
    maven { url '' }

dependencies {
   // AppFriends
   compile 'me.appfriends.sdk:ui:3.2.4'

Once Gradle successfully syncs the library, a final linking step is required:

`$ react-native link react-native-app-friends-library`


Before using AppFriends features, you need to initialize the SDK:

import AppFriends from "react-native-appfriends-library";

// you can get your AppFriends key and secret from AppFriends Dashboard.
AppFriends.initialize('{your application key}', 'your Application secret');
