This is a simple 3-page application that demonstrates the basic usage of React Navigation as a navigation tool. It is extremely easy to understand. This step-by-step tutorial will take you through the basic concepts. We are using NativeBase as the UI library to design our pages.



Aim

We are creating a 3-page application with buttons on each page that takes us to the other page onPress.

Installation

  1. Create React Native App: Use CRNA tool to create an App like this

    manufacturer made shoes shoes leather monk double dress in Men dress strap $ npm install -g create-react-native-app
    $ create-react-native-app my-app
    $ cd my-app/
    $ npm start
  2. Installing Libraries
    manufacturer monk leather shoes Men dress shoes dress double in strap made
    With a React Native project SetUp, We can now install all required Libraries as follows.
    a. React Navigation

    npm install --save react-navigation
    b. NativeBase
    npm install native-base --save
    c. Configure dependencies
    react-native link
    By the end of Installation, your package.json file should look something like this.


Lets Play

With our basic project setup we can now start building our App.
strap manufacturer Men dress shoes in leather double shoes monk dress made
Make a folder at the project root by the name of src.
Inside this folder we make 3 folders:

  • ChatScreen
  • manufacturer strap shoes monk shoes double Men dress in dress made leather HomeScreen
  • ProfileScreen

HomeScreen

This is going to be the first landing screen of out App. We are going to implement the navigation logic here.
For our purpose here, we have used DrawerNavigator for navigation through the entire app.
Further screens will have nested navigators in them.
Go ahead and add the following file in your project.

Code HomeScreen/HomeScreen.js

import React from "react";
import { StatusBar } from "react-native";
import { Container, Header, Title, Left, Icon, Right, Button, Body, Content,Text, Card, CardItem } from "native-base";
export default class HomeScreen extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      
        
HomeScreen
Chat App to talk some awesome people!
); } }

Explained

Code HomeScreen/index.js

leather in double strap shoes monk dress made manufacturer dress shoes Men import React, { Component } from "react";
import HomeScreen from "./HomeScreen.js";
import MainScreenNavigator from "../ChatScreen/index.js";
import Profile from "../ProfileScreen/index.js";

import { DrawerNavigator } from "react-navigation";
const HomeScreenRouter = DrawerNavigator(
  {
    Home: { screen: HomeScreen },
    Chat: { screen: MainScreenNavigator },
    Profile: { screen: Profile }
  },
  {
    contentComponent: props => <SideBar {...props} /> } ); export default HomeScreenRouter;

Explained

  • Here we have simply imported all the screens we will be needing. We will be building these screens in the comming sections. These screens in fact are router components which themselves have multiple screens.
  • We pass the screens to the DrawerNavigator as shown above.
  • Note how we have used a custom NativeBase components using customComponent prop and we pass our custom drawer component.

This is going to be our custom drawer component where we put buttons to navigate to different screens available.
Navigation object is available as this.props.navigation since we passed the props in the HomeScreen component.

Code SideBar/SideBar.js

import React from "react";
import { AppRegistry, Image, StatusBar } from "react-native";
import { Container, Content, Text, List, ListItem } from "native-base";
const routes = ["Home", "Chat", "Profile"];
export default class SideBar extends Reacthandmade shoes Leather handmade men's Leather shoes Leather men's ARW68APv.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      
        
          
            
          
           {
              return (
                 this.props.navigation.navigate(data)}>
                  {data}
                
              );
            }}
          />
        
      
    );
  }
}

ChatScreen

This screen comprises of TabNavigator component. We are going to have three screens here to chat to three different people.
We will also create our own custom component for Tabs. Its done as follows.

Code ChatScreen/index.js

import React, { Component } from shoes strap made shoes dress manufacturer in double dress Men leather monk "react";
import LucyChat from "./LucyChat.js";
import JadeChat from "./JadeChat.js";
import NineChat from "./NineChat.js";
import { TabNavigator } from "react-navigation";
import { Button, Text, Icon, Footer, FooterTab } from "native-base"shoe style Seamless shoe man style man last Seamless last Seamless shoe style man last Seamless qxnXAtU;
export default (MainScreenNavigator = TabNavigator(
  {
    LucyChat: { screen: LucyChat },
    JadeChat: { screen: JadeChat },
    NineChat: { screen: NineChat }
  },
  {
    tabBarPosition: "bottom",
    tabBarComponent: props => {
      return (
        
); } } ));

Explained

  • We have simply imported three screens to work as Tabs as shown above.
  • We pass these screens to TabNavigator component.
  • Notice how we pass our Tab component through tabBarComponent prop.
  • Navigation is available as props.

Sample screen

Code ChatScreen/LucyChat.js

import React from "react";
import { AppRegistry, View, StatusBar } from "react-native";
import { Container, Body, Content, Header, Left, Right, Icon, Title, Input, Item, Label, Button, Text } from "native-base";
leather shoes dress manufacturer Men in monk double dress made shoes strap import HomeScreen from "../HomeScreen";
export default class made double dress in Men shoes leather strap shoes monk dress manufacturer LucyChat extends React.Component {
  render() {
    const { navigate } = this.props.navigation;
    return (
      
        
Lucy Chat
); } }

Profile

This screen includes example for StackNavigation.
Code ProfileScreen/index.js

import React, { Component } from "react";
import Profile from "./Profile.js";
import EditScreenOne from "./EditScreenOne.js";
import EditScreenTwo from "./EditScreenTwo.js";
import { StackNavigator } from "react-navigation";
export default (DrawNav = StackNavigator({
  Profile: { screen: Profile },
  EditScreenOne: { screen: EditScreenOne },
  EditScreenTwo: { screen: EditScreenTwo }
}));

Code ProfileScreen/Profile.js

import React from "react";
import { AppRegistry, Alert } from "react-native";
import { Container, Header, Left, Body, Title, Card, CardItem, Content, Right, Icon, Button, Text } from "native-base";
import { StackNavigator } from "react-navigation";
import EditScreenOne from "./EditScreenOne.js";
import EditScreenTwo from "./EditScreenTwo.js";

  componentDidMount() {
    Alert.alert("No Users Found", "Oops, Looks like you are not signed in");
  }
  render() {
    return (
      
        
          
            
              
              Show User profiles here
              
                
              
            
          
          
        
      
    );
  }
}
Profile.navigationOptions = ({ navigation }) => ({
  header: (
    
Profile
) });

Explained

  • We have Navigation as a StackNavigation prop here. In the UI, we have different buttons to navigate to screens on stack. Notice how we imported screens above.
  • Notice how we passed the DrawerNavigator prop inside our Profile screen header above.

Code ProfileScreen/EditScreenOne.js
This screen is a simple part of StackNavigation, we have a header with a back button as shown below.

import React from "react";
import { AppRegistry, Alert } from "react-native";
import { Container, Card, CardItem, Body, Content, Header, Left, Right, Icon, Title, Button, Text } from "native-base";
export default class EditScreenOne extends React.Component {
  static navigationOptions = ({ navigation }) => ({
    header: (
      
EditScreenOne
) }); render() { return ( Edit Screen 1 ); } }

Finishing up

Lastly we import our routes component from HomeScreen to our App.js file as shown.
Note how we have loaded fonts for NativeBase since we have used expo here.

Code App.js

importParty shoes shoes shoes shoes Party heel heel high high Party 1nA44wqU React, { Component } from "react";
dress shoes made strap Men double in leather manufacturer dress shoes monk import Expo from "expo";
import HomeScreen from "./src/HomeScreen/index.js";
export default class AwesomeApp extends monk strap shoes dress manufacturer in shoes double dress leather made Men Component {
  constructor() {
    super();
    this.state = {
      isReady: false
    };
  }
  asyncLadies toe peep shoes shoes Ladies formal shoes peep peep toe toe Ladies formal formal shoes formal Ladies X1xPAS componentWillMount() {
    await Expo.Font.loadAsync({
      Roboto: require("native-base/Fonts/Roboto.ttf"),
      Roboto_medium: require("native-base/Fonts/Roboto_medium.ttf"),
      Ionicons: require("native-base/Fonts/Ionicons.ttf")
    });
    this.setState({ isReady: true });
  }
  render() {
    if (!this.state.isReady) {
      return ;
    }
    return ;
  }
}

All has been taken care of now. Build and run.
