First step(Download):

Run npm i react-native-splash-screen --save

Second step(Plugin Installation):

Automatic installation

react-native link react-native-splash-screen or rnpm link react-native-splash-screen

Manual installation

  1. In your android/settings.gradle file, make the following additions:
include ':react-native-splash-screen'   
project(':react-native-splash-screen').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/react-native-splash-screen/android')

  1. In your android/app/build.gradle file, add the :react-native-splash-screen project as a compile-time dependency:

dependencies {
    implementation project(':react-native-splash-screen')

  1. Update the file to use react-native-splash-screen via the following changes:

// react-native-splash-screen >= 0.3.1
import org.devio.rn.splashscreen.SplashScreenReactPackage;
// react-native-splash-screen < 0.3.1
import com.cboy.rn.splashscreen.SplashScreenReactPackage;

public class MainApplication extends Application implements ReactApplication {

    private final ReactNativeHost mReactNativeHost = new ReactNativeHost(this) {
        public boolean getUseDeveloperSupport() {
            return BuildConfig.DEBUG;

        protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
            return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
                    new MainReactPackage(),
            new SplashScreenReactPackage()  //here

    public ReactNativeHost getReactNativeHost() {
        return mReactNativeHost;

  1. cd ios
  2. run pod install

  1. In XCode, in the project navigator, right click LibrariesAdd Files to [your project's name]
  2. Go to node_modulesreact-native-splash-screen and add SplashScreen.xcodeproj
  3. In XCode, in the project navigator, select your project. Add libSplashScreen.a to your project's Build PhasesLink Binary With Libraries

Third step(Plugin Configuration):

Update the to use react-native-splash-screen via the following changes:
import android.os.Bundle; // here
import com.facebook.react.ReactActivity;
// react-native-splash-screen >= 0.3.1
import org.devio.rn.splashscreen.SplashScreen; // here
// react-native-splash-screen < 0.3.1
import com.cboy.rn.splashscreen.SplashScreen; // here

public class MainActivity extends ReactActivity {
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {;  // here

return YES;
## Getting started  

Import `react-native-splash-screen` in your JS file.

`import SplashScreen from 'react-native-splash-screen'`    

### Android:

Create a file called `launch_screen.xml` in `app/src/main/res/layout` (create the `layout`-folder if it doesn't exist). The contents of the file should be the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android=""
    android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="match_parent"
    <ImageView android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:src="@drawable/launch_screen" android:scaleType="centerCrop" />

Customize your launch screen by creating a launch_screen.png-file and placing it in an appropriate drawable-folder. Android automatically scales drawable, so you do not necessarily need to provide images for all phone densities. You can create splash screens in the following folders:
  • drawable-ldpi
  • drawable-mdpi
  • drawable-hdpi
  • drawable-xhdpi
  • drawable-xxhdpi
  • drawable-xxxhdpi

Add a color called primary_dark in app/src/main/res/values/colors.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <color name="primary_dark">#000000</color>

Optional steps:
If you want the splash screen to be transparent, follow these steps.
Open android/app/src/main/res/values/styles.xml and add <item name="android:windowIsTranslucent">true</item> to the file. It should look like this:
    <!-- Base application theme. -->
    <style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">
        <!-- Customize your theme here. -->
        <item name="android:windowIsTranslucent">true</item>

To learn more see examples
If you want to customize the color of the status bar when the splash screen is displayed:
Create android/app/src/main/res/values/colors.xml and add
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <color name="status_bar_color"><!-- Colour of your status bar here --></color>

Create a style definition for this in android/app/src/main/res/values/styles.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <style name="SplashScreenTheme" parent="SplashScreen_SplashTheme">
        <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/status_bar_color</item>

Change your show method to include your custom style:,;


Customize your splash screen via LaunchScreen.storyboard or LaunchScreen.xib

Use like so:
import SplashScreen from 'react-native-splash-screen'

export default class WelcomePage extends Component {

    componentDidMount() {
    	// do stuff while splash screen is shown
        // After having done stuff (such as async tasks) hide the splash screen


| Method | Type | Optional | Description | |--------|----------|----------|-------------------------------------| | show() | function | false | Open splash screen (Native Method ) | | show(final Activity activity, final boolean fullScreen) | function | false | Open splash screen (Native Method ) | | hide() | function | false | Close splash screen |



For Jest to work you will need to mock this component. Here is an example:
// __mocks__/react-native-splash-screen.js
export default {
  show: jest.fn().mockImplementation( () => { console.log('show splash screen'); } ),
  hide: jest.fn().mockImplementation( () => { console.log('hide splash screen'); } ),


Splash screen always appears stretched/distorted

Add the ImageView with a scaleType in the launch_screen.xml, e.g.:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>


Issues are welcome. Please add a screenshot of you bug and a code snippet. Quickest way to solve issue is to reproduce it in one of the examples.
Pull requests are welcome. If you want to change the API or do something big it is best to create an issue and discuss it first.
