React Native Gesture Handler

Declarative API exposing platform native touch and gesture system to React Native.

React Native Gesture Handler provides native-driven gesture management APIs for building best possible touch-based experiences in React Native.

With this library gestures are no longer controlled by the JS responder system, but instead are recognized and tracked in the UI thread. It makes touch interactions and gesture tracking not only smooth, but also dependable and deterministic.


Check getting started section of our docs for the detailed installation instructions.


Check out our dedicated documentation page for info about this library, API reference and more: https://docs.swmansion.com/react-native-gesture-handler/docs/


If you want to play with the API but don't feel like trying it on a real app, you can run the example project. Clone the repo, go to the Example/ folder and run:

  yarn install

If you are running on ios, run pod install in the ios folder

Run yarn start to start the metro bundler

Run react-native run-android or react-native run-ios (depending on which platform you want to run the example app on).

You will need to have an Android or iOS device or emulator connected as well as react-native-cli package installed globally.
