    Official React Native SDK for Activity Feeds

    React Native components to create activity and notification feeds using Stream

    NPM Build Status Component Reference

    react native activity feed

    The official React Native integration library for Stream, a web service for building scalable newsfeeds and activity streams.

    :warning: This SDK is no longer actively maintained by Stream

    A Feeds integration includes a combination of server-side and client-side code and the interface can vary widely which is why we are no longer focussing on supporting this SDK. If you are starting from scratch we recommend you only use the server-side SDKs.

    This is by no means a reflection of our commitment to maintaining and improving the Feeds API which will always be a product that we support.

    We continue to welcome pull requests from community members in case you want to improve this SDK.

    Note: The user interface for the activity feed can vary widely across different apps. Most of our activity feed customers integrate with Stream via their backend and build their own UI. This takes advantage of Streamโ€™s scalability while keeping full control over the UI. This library is only updated and improved sporadically.

    ๐Ÿ” React Native Compatibility

    ๐Ÿ”Œ Usage & Activity Feed setup

    Setup StreamApp component

    In order to use Stream React Components in your application, you first need to initialize the StreamApp component. StreamApp holds your application config and acts as a service/data provider.

      {/* everything from your application interacting with Stream should be nested here */}
    1. API_KEY your Stream application API_KEY
    2. API_ID your Stream application ID
    3. USER_ID current user's ID
    4. TOKEN the authentication token for current user
    5. ANALYTICS_TOKEN [optional] the Analytics auth token

    You can find your API_KEY and APP_ID on Stream's dashboard.

    Generating user token

    The authentication user token cannot be generated client-side (that would require sharing your API secret). You should provision a user token as part of the sign-up / login flow to your application from your backend.

    const client = stream.connect(API_KEY, API_SECRET);
    const userToken = client.createUserToken(userId);

    Generating analytics token

    React components have analytics instrumentation built-in, this simplifies the integration with Stream. In order to enable analytics tracking, you need to initialize StreamApp with a valid analytics token. You can generate this server-side as well.

    const client = stream.connect(API_KEY, API_SECRET);
    const analyticsToken = client.getAnalyticsToken();
