React Native Library to show toast

react-native-root-toast npm version


  1. Pure javascript solution.
  2. Support both Android and iOS.
  3. Lots of custom options for Toast.
  4. You can show/hide Toast by calling api or using Component inside render.



npm install react-native-root-toast

react-native-root-toast >= 2.1.0 only supports react-native >= 0.47.0 , for lower version choose 2.0.0 or below.

In react native >= 0.62, the new LogBox component would impact this component's initialization. To make it work we have to explicitly insert a mount point in your app like this:

// in your entry file like `App.js`

// In theory you don't have to install `react-native-root-siblings` because it's a dep of root-toast
// But you can install it explicitly if your editor complains about it.
import { RootSiblingParent } from 'react-native-root-siblings';

// in your render function 
return (
  <RootSiblingParent>  // <- use RootSiblingParent to wrap your root component
    <App />

You can skip this step if your react-native is lower than 0.62. And actually you can inject RootSiblingParent into anywhere like a react portal, for example if you have multiple rootviews you can choose where to display the root toast.

There are two different ways to manage a Toast.

Calling api
import Toast from 'react-native-root-toast';

// Add a Toast on screen.
let toast ='This is a message', {
    duration: Toast.durations.LONG,
    position: Toast.positions.BOTTOM,
    shadow: true,
    animation: true,
    hideOnPress: true,
    delay: 0,
    onShow: () => {
        // calls on toast\`s appear animation start
    onShown: () => {
        // calls on toast\`s appear animation end.
    onHide: () => {
        // calls on toast\`s hide animation start.
    onHidden: () => {
        // calls on toast\`s hide animation end.

// You can manually hide the Toast, or it will automatically disappear after a `duration` ms timeout.
setTimeout(function () {
}, 500);
Using a Component

NOTE: Showing a toast by using a Component inside render, The toast will be automatically disappeared when the <Toast /> is unmounted.

import React, {Component} from 'react-native';
import Toast from 'react-native-root-toast';

class Example extends Component{
    constructor() {
        this.state = {
            visible: false

    componentDidMount() {
        setTimeout(() => this.setState({
            visible: true
        }), 2000); // show toast after 2s

        setTimeout(() => this.setState({
            visible: false
        }), 5000); // hide toast after 5s

    render() {
        return <Toast
        >This is a message</Toast>;
