re: Tutorial: How to share code between iOS, Android & Web using React Native, react-native-web and monorepo VIEW POST


Thanks for the post! I have been able to get it going without any problems using the outlined steps.

I am facing problems however when i try to install 3rd party dependencies after getting the initial setup going. It will be great if the post could be updated with steps on how to install dependencies post setup.

For example i wanted to add react-native-gesture-handler and a few other native libraries but somehow i keep getting some issue or the other. I tried yarn workspace components add react-native-gesture-handler and it installs but i am unable to use it since i get IDE errors about some constants not being found. Similar issues with other libraries as well. Auto-linking somehow doesn't seem to reflect.

Should jettifier be installed and added in the post-install of package.json(and if so which package.json - root or the ones inside the packages) if running commands like yarn workspace mobile start? Basically some tips on how to add 3rd party libraries for both mobile and web will really help. Thanks again for the post - its my first attempt at a monorepo and this post really helped iron out all my initial doubts but i am also obviously making some newbie/rookie mistakes so there are some stumbling blocks to really get started with it.


Ok. so with a few more attempts i got it going for a critical dependency in my packages. I am using the versatile Navigation router (github.com/grahammendick/navigation) for all the routing requirements in all my packages, across all the router's supported platforms (which is basically everything web, mobile, native etc).

After following all the steps in the post i initially installed the router into my equivalent of the components package. I got it to work for the web but, for the react-native implementation, the navigation router has native code for Android and IoS and somehow it wasn't getting auto-linked. The solution was to simply install it to my equivalent of the mobile package and everything seems good! im still not sure of the jettifer post-install step but it should not be an issue i think.
