Currently this guide is written for react-native-notifications@^3.0.0.
We also assume you use react-native@60.x.x and above.

For older versions, visit this installation guide.

Add react-native-notifications to your dependencies

$ npm install --save react-native-notifications

Link native dependencies

iOS

$ pod install --project-directory=ios/

Add the following line at the top of your AppDelegate.m

#import "RNNotifications.h"

Start monitor notifications in AppDelegate.m:

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
[RNNotifications startMonitorNotifications]; // -> Add this line
return YES;
}

And add the following methods to support registration to AppDelegate.m:

- (void)application:(UIApplication *)application didRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithDeviceToken:(NSData *)deviceToken {
[RNNotifications didRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithDeviceToken:deviceToken];
}
- (void)application:(UIApplication *)application didFailToRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithError:(NSError *)error {
[RNNotifications didFailToRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithError:error];
}

Register for notification events

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import {Notifications} from 'react-native-notifications';
class MyComponent extends Component {
constructor(props) {
super(props);
Notifications.registerRemoteNotifications();
Notifications.events().registerNotificationReceivedForeground((notification: Notification, completion) => {
console.log(`Notification received in foreground: ${notification.title} : ${notification.body}`);
completion({alert: false, sound: false, badge: false});
});
Notifications.events().registerNotificationOpened((notification: Notification, completion) => {
console.log(`Notification opened: ${notification.payload}`);
completion();
});
}
}
