React Native Support

Write with or create components using JavaScript code to develop Android and iOS applications using React Native. This framework allows native mobile development design which makes it easily transferable for both Android and iOS platforms so you don’t need to develop on each platform separately.


View our React Native GitHub repository here or take a look at how to implement React Native with Foxit PDF SDK for iOS and Android.

React Native and Foxit PDF SDK

All you need to start your project is node.js, react-native-cli and PDF SDK for both Android and iOS. Once installed and open, you can use standard commands for both platforms separating them into different folders so that your app will work on both instantly. After this add the PDF libraries that you need, licenses and modules and you are on your way to creating a great app with PDF functionality inside.

Using Foxit PDF SDK with React Native

React Native is known for its efficiency on data retrieval and improvement in performance for applications running in APIs, like Foxit PDF SDK for Android/iOS. We have seen great feedback in the early months of our framework release.

Because you will be developing in JavaScript, code is compiled and runs faster than native apps. You can see this in the wide ranging applications built using React Native, like Uber, Wix, Adidas Glitch and SoundCloud Pulse.
