Documentation

react-native-svg

Version NPM

react-native-svg provides SVG support to React Native on iOS and Android, and a compatibility layer for the web.

Check out the demo

Features

  1. Supports most SVG elements and properties (Rect, Circle, Line, Polyline, Polygon, G ...).
  2. Easy to convert SVG code to react-native-svg.

Installation

Automatically

With Expo, this is pre-installed. Jump ahead to Usage

  1. Install library from npm

    npm i react-native-svg
  2. Link native code

    react-native link react-native-svg

NOTICE:

Due to breaking changes in react-native, the version given in the left column (and higher versions) of react-native-svg only supports the react-native version in the right column (and higher versions, if possible).

It is recommended to use the version of react given in the peer dependencies of the react-native version you are using.

The latest version of react-native-svg should always work in a clean react-native project.

react-native-svg react-native
3.2.0 0.29
4.2.0 0.32
4.3.0 0.33
4.4.0 0.38
4.5.0 0.40
5.1.8 0.44
5.2.0 0.45
5.3.0 0.46
5.4.1 0.47
5.5.1 >=0.50
>=6 >=0.50
>=7 >=0.57.4
>=8 >=0.57.4
>=9 >=0.57.4

Or, include this PR manually for v7+ stability on android for older RN ( included in 0.57-stable and newer).

The latest version of v6, v7, v8 and v9 should all work in the latest react-native version.

v7 and newer requires the patch for making android thread safe, to get native animation support.

Manually

Android
  1. npm install react-native-svg --save

  2. Append the following lines to android/settings.gradle:

    include ':react-native-svg'
    project(':react-native-svg').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, 	'../node_modules/react-native-svg/android')
    
  3. Insert the following lines inside the dependencies block in android/app/build.gradle:

    implementation project(':react-native-svg')
    
  4. Open up android/app/src/main/java/[...]/MainApplication.java

  • Add import com.horcrux.svg.SvgPackage; to the imports at the top of the file
  • Add new SvgPackage() to the list returned by the getPackages() method. Add a comma to the previous item if there's already something there.
iOS

Manual linking

To install react-native-svg on iOS visit the link referenced above or do the following:

  1. Open your project in XCode and drag the RNSVG.xcodeproj file (located in .../node_modules/react-native-svg/ios) into the Libraries directory shown in XCode.
  2. Expand the RNSVG.xcodeproj file you just added to XCode until you see: libRNSVG.a (located in RNSVG.xcodeproj > Products )
  3. Drag libRNSVG.a into the Link Binary With Libraries section (located in Build Phases which may be found at the top of the XCode window)
CocoaPods

Alternatively, you can use CocoaPods to manage your native (Objective-C and Swift) dependencies:

  1. Add RNSVG to your Podfile
pod 'RNSVG', :path => '../node_modules/react-native-svg'

If cocoapods is used and if error RNSVGImage.m:12:9: 'React/RCTImageLoader.h' file not found occurs:

Add the following entry in Podfile:

    pod 'React', :path => '../node_modules/react-native', :subspecs => [
        [...]
        'RCTImage', # <-- Add RCTImage
    ]

and run pod install from ios folder

Troubleshooting

If you have build errors, then it might be caused by caching issues, please try:

watchman watch-del-all
rm -fr $TMPDIR/react-*
npm start -- --reset-cache

Or,

rm -rf node_modules
npm i
npm start -- --reset-cache

If the new build system in XCode 10 is failing, either use the legacy system, or uncheck "Parallelize build", clean the project, and build again.

If you have unexpected behavior, please create a clean project with the latest versions of react-native and react-native-svg

react-native init CleanProject
cd CleanProject/
npm i react-native-svg
react-native link

Make a reproduction of the problem in App.js

react-native run-ios
react-native run-android

Verify that it is still an issue with the latest version. If so, open a new issue, include the entire App.js file, specify what platforms you've tested, and the results of running this command:

react-native info

If you suspect that you've found a spec conformance bug, then you can test using your component in a react-native-web project by forking this codesandbox, to see how different browsers render the same content: https://codesandbox.io/s/pypn6mn3y7

Usage

Here's a simple example. To render output like this:

SVG example

Use the following code:

import Svg,{
    Circle,
    Ellipse,
    G,
    Text,
    TSpan,
    TextPath,
    Path,
    Polygon,
    Polyline,
    Line,
    Rect,
    Use,
    Image,
    Symbol,
    Defs,
    LinearGradient,
    RadialGradient,
    Stop,
    ClipPath,
    Pattern,
    Mask,
} from 'react-native-svg';

/* Use this if you are using Expo
import { Svg } from 'expo';
const { Circle, Rect } = Svg;
*/

import React from 'react';
import { View, StyleSheet } from 'react-native';

export default class SvgExample extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <View
        style={[
          StyleSheet.absoluteFill,
          { alignItems: 'center', justifyContent: 'center' },
        ]}>
        <Svg height="50%" width="50%" viewBox="0 0 100 100">
          <Circle
            cx="50"
            cy="50"
            r="45"
            stroke="blue"
            strokeWidth="2.5"
            fill="green"
          />
          <Rect
            x="15"
            y="15"
            width="70"
            height="70"
            stroke="red"
            strokeWidth="2"
            fill="yellow"
          />
        </Svg>
      </View>
    );
  }
}

Try this on Snack

Use with content loaded from uri

Try react-native-svg-uri

import * as React from 'react';
import SvgUri from 'react-native-svg-uri';

export default () => (
  <SvgUri
    width="200"
    height="200"
    source={{
      uri: 'http://thenewcode.com/assets/images/thumbnails/homer-simpson.svg',
    }}
  />
);

Use with svg files

Try react-native-svg-transformer to get compile time conversion and cached transformations. https://github.com/kristerkari/react-native-svg-transformer#installation-and-configuration https://github.com/kristerkari/react-native-svg-transformer#for-react-native-v057-or-newer--expo-sdk-v3100-or-newer

metro.config.js

const { getDefaultConfig } = require("metro-config");

module.exports = (async () => {
  const {
    resolver: { sourceExts, assetExts }
  } = await getDefaultConfig();
  return {
    transformer: {
      babelTransformerPath: require.resolve("react-native-svg-transformer")
    },
    resolver: {
      assetExts: assetExts.filter(ext => ext !== "svg"),
      sourceExts: [...sourceExts, "svg"]
    }
  };
})();

Import your .svg file inside a React component:

import Logo from "./logo.svg";

You can then use your image as a component:

<Logo width={120} height={40} />

Alternatively, you can use react-native-svg-uri with babel-plugin-inline-import, but with transforms done at run-time.

.babelrc

{
  "presets": ["module:metro-react-native-babel-preset"],
  "plugins": [
    ["babel-plugin-inline-import", {
      "extensions": [
        ".svg"
      ]
    }]
  ]
}

App.js

import * as React from 'react';
import SvgUri from 'react-native-svg-uri';
import testSvg from './test.svg';
export default () => (
  <SvgUri
    width="200"
    height="200"
    svgXmlData={testSvg}
  />
);

Common props:

fill '#000' The fill prop refers to the color inside the shape.
fillOpacity 1 This prop specifies the opacity of the color or the content the current object is filled with.
fillRule nonzero The fillRule prop determines what side of a path is inside a shape, which determines how fill will paint the shape, can be nonzero or evenodd
stroke 'none' The stroke prop controls how the outline of a shape appears.
strokeWidth 1 The strokeWidth prop specifies the width of the outline on the current object.
strokeOpacity 1 The strokeOpacity prop specifies the opacity of the outline on the current object.

Supported elements:

Svg

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="100"
>
    <Rect x="0" y="0" width="100" height="100" fill="black" />
    <Circle cx="50" cy="50" r="30" fill="yellow" />
    <Circle cx="40" cy="40" r="4" fill="black" />
    <Circle cx="60" cy="40" r="4" fill="black" />
    <Path d="M 40 60 A 10 10 0 0 0 60 60" stroke="black" />
</Svg>

Colors set in the Svg element are inherited by its children:

<Svg
    width="130"
    height="130"
    fill="blue"
    stroke="red"
    color="green"
    viewBox="-16 -16 544 544"
>
    <Path
        d="M318.37,85.45L422.53,190.11,158.89,455,54.79,350.38ZM501.56,60.2L455.11,13.53a45.93,45.93,0,0,0-65.11,0L345.51,58.24,449.66,162.9l51.9-52.15A35.8,35.8,0,0,0,501.56,60.2ZM0.29,497.49a11.88,11.88,0,0,0,14.34,14.17l116.06-28.28L26.59,378.72Z"
        strokeWidth="32"
    />
    <Path d="M0,0L512,512" stroke="currentColor" strokeWidth="32" />
</Svg>

Pencil

Code explanation:

  • The fill prop defines the color inside the object.
  • The stroke prop defines the color of the line drawn around the object.
  • The color prop is a bit special in the sense that it won't color anything by itself, but define a kind of color variable that can be used by children elements. In this example we're defining a "green" color in the Svg element and using it in the second Path element via stroke="currentColor". The "currentColor" is what refers to that "green" value, and it can be used in other props that accept colors too, e.g. fill="currentColor".

Rect

The element is used to create a rectangle and variations of a rectangle shape:

<Svg
    width="200"
    height="60"
>
    <Rect
        x="25"
        y="5"
        width="150"
        height="50"
        fill="rgb(0,0,255)"
        strokeWidth="3"
        stroke="rgb(0,0,0)"
    />
</Svg>

Rect

Code explanation:

  • The width and height props of the element define the height and the width of the rectangle.
  • The x prop defines the left position of the rectangle (e.g. x="25" places the rectangle 25 px from the left margin).
  • The y prop defines the top position of the rectangle (e.g. y="5" places the rectangle 5 px from the top margin).
Circle

The element is used to create a circle:

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="100"
>
    <Circle
        cx="50"
        cy="50"
        r="50"
        fill="pink"
    />
</Svg>

Rect

Code explanation:

  • The cx and cy props define the x and y coordinates of the center of the circle. If cx and cy are omitted, the circle's center is set to (0,0)
  • The r prop defines the radius of the circle

Ellipse

The element is used to create an ellipse.

An ellipse is closely related to a circle. The difference is that an ellipse has an x and a y radius that differs from each other, while a circle has equal x and y radius.

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="110"
>
    <Ellipse
        cx="55"
        cy="55"
        rx="50"
        ry="30"
        stroke="purple"
        strokeWidth="2"
        fill="yellow"
    />
</Svg>

Rect

Code explanation:

  • The cx prop defines the x coordinate of the center of the ellipse
  • The cy prop defines the y coordinate of the center of the ellipse
  • The rx prop defines the horizontal radius
  • The ry prop defines the vertical radius

Line

The element is an SVG basic shape, used to create a line connecting two points.

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="100"
>
    <Line
        x1="0"
        y1="0"
        x2="100"
        y2="100"
        stroke="red"
        strokeWidth="2"
    />
</Svg>

Rect

Code explanation:

  • The x1 prop defines the start of the line on the x-axis.
  • The y1 prop defines the start of the line on the y-axis.
  • The x2 prop defines the end of the line on the x-axis.
  • The y2 prop defines the end of the line on the y-axis.

Polygon

The element is used to create a graphic that contains at least three sides. Polygons are made of straight lines, and the shape is "closed" (all the lines connect up).

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="100"
>
    <Polygon
        points="40,5 70,80 25,95"
        fill="lime"
        stroke="purple"
        strokeWidth="1"
    />
</Svg>

Rect

Code explanation:

  • The points prop defines the x and y coordinates for each corner of the polygon

Polyline

The element is used to create any shape that consists of only straight lines:

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="100"
>
    <Polyline
        points="10,10 20,12 30,20 40,60 60,70 95,90"
        fill="none"
        stroke="black"
        strokeWidth="3"
    />
</Svg>

Rect

Code explanation:

  • The points prop defines the x and y coordinates for each point of the polyline

Path

The element is used to define a path.

The following commands are available for path data:

  • M = moveto
  • L = lineto
  • H = horizontal lineto
  • V = vertical lineto
  • C = curveto
  • S = smooth curveto
  • Q = quadratic Bézier curve
  • T = smooth quadratic Bézier curveto
  • A = elliptical Arc
  • Z = closepath

Note: All of the commands above can also be expressed with lower letters. Capital letters means absolutely positioned, lower cases means relatively positioned. See Path document of SVG to know parameters for each command.

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="100"
>
    <Path
        d="M25 10 L98 65 L70 25 L16 77 L11 30 L0 4 L90 50 L50 10 L11 22 L77 95 L20 25"
        fill="none"
        stroke="red"
    />
</Svg>

Rect

Text

The element is used to define text.

<Svg
    height="60"
    width="200"
>
    <Text
        fill="none"
        stroke="purple"
        fontSize="20"
        fontWeight="bold"
        x="100"
        y="20"
        textAnchor="middle"
    >STROKED TEXT</Text>
</Svg>

Text

TSpan

The element is used to draw multiple lines of text in SVG. Rather than having to position each line of text absolutely, the element makes it possible to position a line of text relatively to the previous line of text.

<Svg
    height="160"
    width="200"
>
    <Text y="20" dx="5 5">
        <TSpan x="10" >tspan line 1</TSpan>
        <TSpan x="10" dy="15">tspan line 2</TSpan>
        <TSpan x="10" dx="10" dy="15">tspan line 3</TSpan>
    </Text>
    <Text x="10" y="60" fill="red" fontSize="14">
        <TSpan dy="5 10 20" >12345</TSpan>
        <TSpan fill="blue" dy="15" dx="0 5 5">
            <TSpan>6</TSpan>
            <TSpan>7</TSpan>
        </TSpan>
        <TSpan dx="0 10 20" dy="0 20" fontWeight="bold" fontSize="12">89a</TSpan>
    </Text>
    <Text y="140" dx="0 5 5" dy="0 -5 -5">delta on text</Text>
</Svg>

TSpan

TextPath

In addition to text drawn in a straight line, SVG also includes the ability to place text along the shape of a element. To specify that a block of text is to be rendered along the shape of a , include the given text within a element which includes an href attribute with a reference to a element.

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="200"
>
    <Defs>
        <Path
            id="path"
            d={path}
        />
    </Defs>
    <G y="20">
        <Text
            fill="blue"

        >
            <TextPath href="#path" startOffset="-10%">
                We go up and down,
                <TSpan fill="red" dy="5,5,5">then up again</TSpan>
            </TextPath>
        </Text>
        <Path
            d={path}
            fill="none"
            stroke="red"
            strokeWidth="1"
        />
    </G>
</Svg>

TextPath

G

The element is a container used to group other SVG elements. Transformations applied to the g element are performed on all of its child elements, and any of its props are inherited by its child elements. It can also group multiple elements to be referenced later with the <Use /> element.

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="200"
>
    <G
        rotation="50"
        origin="100, 50"
    >
        <Line
            x1="60"
            y1="10"
            x2="140"
            y2="10"
            stroke="#060"
        />

        <Rect
            x="60"
            y="20"
            height="50"
            width="80"
            stroke="#060"
            fill="#060"
        />

        <Text
            x="100"
            y="75"
            stroke="#600"
            fill="#600"
            textAnchor="middle"
        >
            Text grouped with shapes</Text>
    </G>
</Svg>

G

Use

The element can reuse an SVG shape from elsewhere in the SVG document, including elements and elements. The reused shape can be defined inside the <Defs> element (which makes the shape invisible until used) or outside.

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="300"
>
    <Defs>
        <G id="shape">
            <G>
                <Circle cx="50" cy="50" r="50" />
                <Rect x="50" y="50" width="50" height="50" />
                <Circle cx="50" cy="50" r="5" fill="blue" />
            </G>
        </G>
    </Defs>
    <Use href="#shape" x="20" y="0"/>
    <Use href="#shape" x="170"y="0" />
</Svg>

This example shows a element defined inside a <Defs> element. This makes the invisible unless referenced by a element.

Before the element can be referenced, it must have an ID set on it via its id prop. The element references the element via its href prop. Notice the # in front of the ID in the prop value.

The element specifies where to show the reused shapes via its x and y props. Notice that the shapes inside the element are located at 0,0. That is done because their position is added to the position specified in the element.

use

Symbol

The SVG element is used to define reusable symbols. The shapes nested inside a are not displayed unless referenced by a element.

<Svg
    height="150"
    width="110"
>
    <Symbol id="symbol" viewBox="0 0 150 110" width="100" height="50">
        <Circle cx="50" cy="50" r="40" strokeWidth="8" stroke="red" fill="red"/>
        <Circle cx="90" cy="60" r="40" strokeWidth="8" stroke="green" fill="white"/>
    </Symbol>

    <Use
        href="#symbol"
        x="0"
        y="0"
    />
    <Use
        href="#symbol"
        x="0"
        y="50"
        width="75"
        height="38"
    />
    <Use
        href="#symbol"
        x="0"
        y="100"
        width="50"
        height="25"
    />
</Svg>

Symbol

Defs

The element is used to embed definitions that can be reused inside an SVG image. For instance, you can group SVG shapes together and reuse them as a single shape.

Image

The element allows a raster image to be included in an Svg componenet.

<Svg
    height="100"
    width="100"
>
    <Defs>
        <ClipPath id="clip">
            <Circle cx="50%" cy="50%" r="40%"/>
        </ClipPath>

ClipPath

The SVG element defines a clipping path. A clipping path is used/referenced using the clipPath property

<Svg

        <RadialGradient id="grad" cx="50%" cy="50%" rx="50%" ry="50%" fx="50%" fy="50%" gradientUnits="userSpaceOnUse">

LinearGradient

The element is used to define a linear gradient. The element must be nested within a <Defs> tag. The <Defs> tag is short for definitions and contains definition of special elements (such as gradients).

Linear gradients can be defined as horizontal, vertical or angular gradients:

  • Horizontal gradients are created when y1 and y2 are equal and x1 and x2 differ
  • Vertical gradients are created when x1 and x2 are equal and y1 and y2 differ
  • Angular gradients are created when x1 and x2 differ and y1 and y2 differ
<Svg
    height="150"
    width="300"
>
    <Defs>
        <LinearGradient id="grad" x1="0" y1="0" x2="170" y2="0">
            <Stop offset="0" stopColor="rgb(255,255,0)" stopOpacity="0" />
            <Stop offset="1" stopColor="red" stopOpacity="1" />
        </LinearGradient>
    </Defs>
    <Ellipse cx="150" cy="75" rx="85" ry="55" fill="url(#grad)" />
</Svg>

Code explanation:

  • The id prop of the tag defines a unique name for the gradient
  • The x1, x2, y1,y2 props of the tag define the start and end position of the gradient
  • The color range for a gradient can be composed of two or more colors. Each color is specified with a tag. The offset prop is used to define where the gradient color begin and end
  • The fill prop links the ellipse element to the gradient

LinearGradient

NOTICE: LinearGradient also supports percentage as prop:

<LinearGradient id="grad" x1="0%" y1="0%" x2="100%" y2="0%">
    <Stop offset="0%" stopColor="rgb(255,255,0)" stopOpacity="0" />
    <Stop offset="100%" stopColor="red" stopOpacity="1" />
</LinearGradient>

This result is same as the example before. But it's recommend to use exact number instead; it has performance advantages over using percentages.

RadialGradient

The element is used to define a radial gradient. The element must be nested within a <Defs> tag. The <Defs> tag is short for definitions and contains definition of special elements (such as gradients).

<Svg
    height="150"
    width="300"
>
    <Defs>
        <RadialGradient id="grad" cx="150" cy="75" rx="85" ry="55" fx="150" fy="75" gradientUnits="userSpaceOnUse">
            <Stop
                offset="0"
                stopColor="#ff0"
                stopOpacity="1"
            />
            <Stop
                offset="1"
                stopColor="#83a"
                stopOpacity="1"
            />
        </RadialGradient>
    </Defs>
    <Ellipse cx="150" cy="75" rx="85" ry="55" fill="url(#grad)" />
</Svg>

Code explanation:

  • The id prop of the tag defines a unique name for the gradient
  • The cx, cy and r props define the outermost circle and the fx and fy define the innermost circle
  • The color range for a gradient can be composed of two or more colors. Each color is specified with a tag. The offset prop is used to define where the gradient color begin and end
  • The fill prop links the ellipse element to the gradient

Mask

In SVG, you can specify that any other graphics object or ‘G’ element can be used as an alpha mask for compositing the current object into the background.

A mask is defined with a ‘Mask’ element. A mask is used/referenced using the ‘mask’ property.

A ‘Mask’ can contain any graphical elements or container elements such as a ‘G’.

The element must be nested within a <Defs> tag. The <Defs> tag is short for definitions and contains definition of special elements (such as gradients).

Pattern

A pattern is used to fill or stroke an object using a pre-defined graphic object which can be replicated ("tiled") at fixed intervals in x and y to cover the areas to be painted. Patterns are defined using a ‘pattern’ element and then referenced by properties ‘fill’ and ‘stroke’ on a given graphics element to indicate that the given element shall be filled or stroked with the referenced pattern. The element must be nested within a <Defs> tag. The <Defs> tag is short for definitions and contains definition of special elements (such as gradients).

Touch Events

Touch events are supported in react-native-svg. These include:

  • disabled
  • onPress
  • onPressIn
  • onPressOut
  • onLongPress
  • delayPressIn
  • delayPressOut
  • delayLongPress

You can use these events to provide interactivity to your react-native-svg components.

<Circle
    cx="50%"
    cy="50%"
    r="38%"
    fill="red"
    onPress={() => alert('Press on Circle')}
/>
