Readme

react-native-share-pdf
npm version Codacy Badge codecov CircleCI
Android Library for saving and sharing a base64 encoded PDF.

Motivation

Sharing a base64 PDF works on iOS with the React Native API but it's not working for Android. The ShareFile JAVA module shows that's possible by saving the document on local storage of the device and sharing it.

Demo

Android | iOS ------- | --- Android | iOS

Install

npm i react-native-share-pdf

Usage

import RNShareFile from 'react-native-share-pdf';

async function loadAndSharePDF() {
  const showError = await RNShareFile.sharePDF(mockData.document, mockData.filename);
  if (showError) {
    // Do something with the error
  }
}

Methods

  • RNShareFile.share(base64Data, documentFileName);
