Rownd bindings for React Native

Prerequisites

You must be using React Native v0.64 or higher.

Installation

First, install the Rownd SDK for React Native.
npm install @rownd/react-native

Android

  1. 1.
    Ensure the Sdk versions match or are above provided versions. File: android/build.gradle
ext {
...
minSdkVersion = 26
compileSdkVersion = 32
targetSdkVersion = 31
...
}
2. Install the Rownd library and dependencies.
cd android && ./gradlew build

iOS

  1. 1.
    Ensure iOS version is at least 14. File: ios/Podfile
platform :ios, '14.0'
2. Add the code below to install the Sodium pod dependency correctly. Place inside the target. File: ios/Podfile
dynamic_frameworks = ['Sodium']
pre_install do |installer|
installer.pod_targets.each do |pod|
if dynamic_frameworks.include?(pod.name)
puts "Overriding the dynamic_framework? method for #{pod.name}"
def pod.dynamic_framework?;
true
end
def pod.build_type;
Pod::BuildType.dynamic_framework
end
end
end
end
3. Install the Rownd pod and it's dependencies
cd ios && pod install

Setup

Enable deep linking

Rownd supports automatically signing-in users when they initially install your app or when they click a sign-in link when the app is already installed.

Usage

The Rownd SDK includes a context provider that will enable any component of your app to access authentication state and user data.
Before you can use the SDK, you'll need to obtain an App Key from the Rownd Dashboard.
import { RowndProvider } from "@rownd/react-native";
// ...
export default function Root() {
return (
<RowndProvider appKey="<your app key>">
<App />
</RowndProvider>
);
}
Later on within your app's components, you can use the Rownd hook to access the Rownd browser API:
import { View, Text } from 'react-native';
import { useRownd } from '@rownd/react';
export default function MyProtectedComponent(props) {
const { is_authenticated, user, requestSignIn, getAccessToken } = useRownd();
// You can also request a sign in without a user pressing a button
// by calling requestSignIn() from a useEffect callback.
// useEffect(() => {
// if (!is_authenticated) {
// requestSignIn();
// }
// }, [is_authenticated]);
return (
<View>
{is_authenticated ? (
<>
<h1>Welcome {user.data.first_name}</h1>
<button onClick={() => getAccessToken()}>Get access token</button>
</>
) : (
<>
<Text>Please sign in to continue</Text>
<Pressable onPress={() => requestSignIn()}>
<Text>Sign in</Text>
</Pressable>
</>
)}
</View>
);
}

API reference

Most API methods are made available via the Rownd Provider and its associated useRownd React hook. Unless otherwise noted, we're assuming that you're using hooks.
requestSignIn()
Trigger the Rownd sign in dialog
const { requestSignIn } = useRownd();
requestSignIn();
signOut()
Sign out the user and clear their profile, returning them to a completely unauthenticated state.
const { signOut } = useRownd();
signOut();
getAccessToken()
Retrieves the active, valid access token for the current user.
const { getAccessToken } = useRownd();
let accessToken = await getAccessToken();
is_authenticated
Indicates whether the current user is signed in or not.
const { is_authenticated } = useRownd();
return (
<>
{is_authenticated && <ProtectedRoute />}
{!is_authenticated && <PublicRoute />}
</>
);
access_token
Represents the current access token for the user.
const { access_token } = useRownd();
useEffect(() => {
axios({
method: 'post',
url: '/api/sessions'
headers: {
authorization: `Bearer ${access_token}`
}
}).then(console.log);
}, [access_token]);
user
Represents information about the current user, specifically their profile information. In the example below, we use the existing data to display the current value of first_name in a form field, update a local copy of that data as the user changes it, and then save the changes to Rownd once the user submits the form.
const { user } = useRownd();
return (
<form onSubmit={() => user.set(profile)}>
<Text>First name</Text>
<TextInput
value={user?.data?.first_name}
onChangeText={}
/>
<Pressable onPress={}>Save</button>
</form>
);
Merge data into the user profile
const { user } = useRownd();
user.set({
first_name: 'Alice',
last_name: 'Ranier'
});
Set a specific field in the user profile
const { user } = useRownd();
user.setValue('first_name', 'Alice');
