Android Installation

Add the library to your application class (e.g. MainApplication.java):

import com.wix.reactnativenotifications.RNNotificationsPackage;
...
@Override
protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
@SuppressWarnings("UnnecessaryLocalVariable")
List<ReactPackage> packages = new PackageList(this).getPackages();
// ...
// Add the following line:
packages.add(new RNNotificationsPackage(MainApplication.this));
return packages;
}

Receiving push notifications

note

This section is only necessary in case you wish to be able to receive push notifications in your React-Native app.

Push notifications on Android are managed and dispatched using Google's FCM service. The following installation steps are a TL;DR of Google's FCM setup guide. You can follow them to get FCM integrated quickly, but we recommend that you will in the very least have a peek at the guide's overview.

Step #1: Subscribe to Google's FCM

To set FCM in your app, you must first create a google-services.json file. If you have no existing API project yet, the easiest way to go about in creating one is using this step-by-step installation process;

Step #2: Copy google-services.json

After creating google-services.json, copy it into your project's android/app folder.

Step #3: Add google-services package

./android/build.gradle
buildscript {
...
dependencies {
...
classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.0.0'
}
}

Step #4: Add firebase-core package and apply google-services plugin

./android/app/build.gradle
dependencies {
...
implementation project(':react-native-notifications')
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.0'
}
apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'

Step #5: Link react-native-notifications

./android/settings.gradle
include ':react-native-notifications'
project(':react-native-notifications').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/react-native-notifications/lib/android/app')
