iOS FBSDKShareKit support for React Native apps.

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import reactNativeFbsdkshare from '';



A wrapper around the functionality from FBSDKShareKit in the iOS Facebook SDK, supporting the share button, share dialogs, etc.


Share dialogs

All of the dialogs included are used in a similar way, with differing content types.

var FBSDKShare = require('react-native-fbsdkshare');
var {
} = FBSDKShare;

// ...

// Build up a shareable link.
var linkContent = new FBSDKShareLinkContent('', 'Wow, check out this great site!', '', null);
// Share the link using the native share dialog., (error, result) => {
  if (!error) {
    if (result.isCancelled) {
      alert('Share cancelled.');
    } else {
      alert('Thanks for sharing!');
  } else {
    alert('Error sharing.');

// ..

Share API

Your app must have the publish_actions permission approved to share through the share API.

var FBSDKShare = require('react-native-fbsdkshare');
var {
} = FBSDKShare;

// ...

// Build up a shareable photo, where 'cat.png' is included in the project. A data URI encoding the image can also be passed.
var photo = new FBSDKSharePhoto('cat.png', true);
var photoContent = new FBSDKSharePhotoContent([photo]);
// Share using the share API.
FBSDKShareAPI.share(photoContent, "/me", "Check out this cat!", (error, result) => {
  if (error) {
    alert('Error sharing');
  } else {
    alert('Shared successfully');

// ...

Sample App

A sample app is available from the GitHub repository for React Native FBSDK.


Run npm install --save react-native-fbsdkshare to add the package to your app's dependencies.

You'll then also have to add the native iOS code to your app's Xcode project:

  • Download and install the Facebook SDK for iOS. The Xcode project assumes that it's installed in the standard location at ~/Documents/FacebookSDK.
  • Follow the Getting Started guide to link your project with the Facebook SDK frameworks and set up the app delegate. FBSDKShareKit.framework must be added to your app's Xcode project.
  • Add RCTFBSDKShare.xcodeproj from node_modules/react-native-fbsdkshare to your app's Xcode project. Follow the Linking Libraries (iOS) guide to make sure it's added correctly to your project's build targets.


Alternatively, CocoaPods can automatically maintain the native iOS code within your Xcode project. To use CocoaPods, create a PodFile like this in your app's project directory:

source ''
pod 'React', :subspecs => ['Core', 'RCTImage', 'RCTNetwork', 'RCTText', 'RCTWebSocket'], :path => 'node_modules/react-native'
pod 'react-native-fbsdkshare', :path => 'node_modules/react-native-fbsdkshare'

Now run pod install. This will automatically download the Facebook SDK for iOS and create an Xcode workspace containing all native files. From now on open YourApp.xcworkspace instead of YourApp.xcodeproject in Xcode. Because React Native's iOS code is now pulled in via CocoaPods, you also need to remove the React, RCTImage, etc. subprojects from your app's Xcode project.

Follow the Getting Started guide to set up a Facebook app, configure your Xcode project, and set up the app delegate. You can skip the steps that talk about downloading and linking the Facebook SDK frameworks -- that's already taken care of by CocoaPods.
