React Native Swipeable ListView: Vertical List with Swipeable Rows


<SwipeListView> is a vertical ListView with rows that swipe open and closed. Handles default native behavior such as closing rows when ListView is scrolled or when other rows are opened.

Also includes <SwipeRow> if you want to use a swipeable row outside of the <SwipeListView>


For use with RN 0.60+ please use react-native-swipe-list-view@2.0.0+

RN 0.60 and RNSLV 2.0.0 deprecate the use of ListView entirely, please see example.js for examples and see the migrating-to-flatlist doc for a migration guide if you aren't already using FlatList.

The useFlatList prop is no longer required, as FlatList is the default ListView used.


Try it out!

(What's a Snack?)


npm install --save react-native-swipe-list-view

Running the example

  • cd SwipeListExample
  • yarn
  • cd ios
  • pod install

  • react-native run-ios | react-native run-android

Android: If you get the following error SwipeListExample/android/app/debug.keystore' not found for signing config 'debug'.:

cd android/app/ && keytool -genkey -v -keystore debug.keystore -storepass android -alias androiddebugkey -keypass android -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity 10000
// answer the questions
cd ../..


import { SwipeListView } from 'react-native-swipe-list-view';

//... note: your data array objects MUST contain a key property 
//          or you must pass a keyExtractor to the SwipeListView to ensure proper functionality
//          see:

  this.state.listViewData = Array(20)
    .map((_, i) => ({ key: `${i}`, text: `item #${i}` }));

render() {
    return (
            renderItem={ (data, rowMap) => (
                <View style={styles.rowFront}>
                    <Text>I am {data.item.text} in a SwipeListView</Text>
            renderHiddenItem={ (data, rowMap) => (
                <View style={styles.rowBack}>

See example.js for full usage guide (including using <SwipeRow> by itself)


If your row is touchable (TouchableOpacity, TouchableHighlight, etc.) with an onPress function make sure renderItem returns the Touchable as the topmost element.


renderItem={ data => (
    <TouchableHighlight onPress={this.doSomething.bind(this)}>
            <Text>I am {data.item} in a SwipeListView</Text>


renderItem={ data => (
        <TouchableHighlight onPress={this.doSomething.bind(this)}>
            <Text>I am {data.item} in a SwipeListView</Text>
