Recommended Implementation

We recommend that you follow two rules when implementing this component.

  1. Integrate it inside the parent-most/top-level/root component in your app
  2. Wrap usage of actions after attempting to stop the spinner with setTimeout to avoid the non-stop spinner issue:

    this.setState({ spinner: false });
    setTimeout(() => {
      Alert.alert('Oops!', err.message);
    }, 100);
