React Native

react-native complete example app

NOTE: If you are looking to use native modules (react-native-firebase or other), visit the v2.0.0 docs


  1. Click "Add Firebase To iOS"
  2. Download GoogleService-info.plist
  3. Place GoogleService-info.plist in the folder of whichever platform you are using (i.e. /ios)
  4. Copy your client id out of the GoogleService-info.plist file (should end in
  5. Place the client id into iosClientId variable within the example

Example App Snippets

This snippet is a condensed version of react-native complete example.

NOTE: The API used in this snippet changes in v2.0.0, if you are starting a new project, the new syntax is suggested


import { createStore, compose } from 'redux'
import rootReducer from './reducer'
import { firebase as fbConfig } from './config'
import { reactReduxFirebase } from 'react-redux-firebase'
import { AsyncStorage } from 'react-native'

export default function configureStore (initialState, history) {
  // use compose to make a function that will create store
  const createStoreWithMiddleware = compose(
        userProfile: 'users',
        enableLogging: false,
        ReactNative: { AsyncStorage },

  // create store
  const store = createStoreWithMiddleware(rootReducer)

  // Enable Webpack hot module replacement for reducers
  if ( {'./reducer', () => {
      const nextRootReducer = require('./reducer')

  return store

Creating Your Own

We are going to use the project name Devshare for example here. For your project, use your project name everywhere where Devshare is used.


  1. Make sure you have create-react-native-app installed, or install it using npm install -g create-react-native-app.
  2. Run create-react-native-app Devshare (again replace Devshare with the name of your project)
  3. After that is complete, eject using yarn eject or npm run eject

Download Firebase Config

  1. Download GoogleService-Info.plist file from Firebase

    1. Visit Over page and click Add Firebase to iOS


    2. Fill in application info in register modal and click register


    3. Download the .plist file and place it in your ios folder


Add react-native-google-signin

  1. Add react-native-google-signin to the project

    1. Run npm i --save react-native-google-signin to include it within JS dependencies
    2. Download the react-native-google-signin zip, and unzip it
    3. Drag and drop the ios/GoogleSdk folder to your xcode project. (Make sure Copy items if needed IS ticked)
    4. Add RNGoogleSignin to project build phase

      1. Click Name in sidebar of Xcode


      2. In your project build phase -> Link binary with libraries step, add:

      3. libRNGoogleSignin.a
      4. AddressBook.framework
      5. SafariServices.framework
      6. SystemConfiguration.framework
      7. libz.tbd

      Note: (May take clicking "Add Other" button then selecting the GoogleSdk folder and RNGoogleSignin folder)

  2. Make sure all dependencies are correctly linked to your project: link config

  3. Configure URL types in the Info panel of your xcode project

    1. add a URL with scheme set to your REVERSED_CLIENT_ID (found inside the plist)
    2. add a URL with scheme set to your bundle id


  4. Make sure you import RNGoogleSignin.h in your AppDelegate.m like so:

    // add this line before @implementation AppDelegate
    #import <RNGoogleSignin/RNGoogleSignin.h>
    // add this method before @end
    - (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application openURL:(NSURL *)url
     sourceApplication:(NSString *)sourceApplication annotation:(id)annotation {
     return [RNGoogleSignin application:application openURL:url sourceApplication:sourceApplication annotation:annotation];

At the end of this step, your Xcode config should look similar to this:

xcode config

Set Open URLs

Only one openURL method can be defined, so if you have multiple listeners which should be defined (for instance if you have both Google and Facebook OAuth), you must combine them into a single function like so:


- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application openURL:(NSURL *)url
  sourceApplication:(NSString *)sourceApplication annotation:(id)annotation {

  return [[FBSDKApplicationDelegate sharedInstance] application:application
         || [RNGoogleSignin application:application

Run It

Now, if everything was done correctly you should be able to do the following:

react-native run-ios
