A Simple Facebook Chat Head Like Bubble for React Native


A simple Facebook Chat Head like bubble for react native. Special thanks to bubble-for-android because this is just react native wrapper for that library.



$ npm install react-native-floating-bubble --save

Mostly automatic installation

$ react-native link react-native-floating-bubble

Manual installation

  1. Open up android/app/src/main/java/[...]/MainActivity.java
  • Add import com.reactlibrary.RNFloatingBubblePackage; to the imports at the top of the file
  • Add new RNFloatingBubblePackage() to the list returned by the getPackages() method
  1. Append the following lines to android/settings.gradle:

    include ':react-native-floating-bubble'
    project(':react-native-floating-bubble').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, 	'../node_modules/react-native-floating-bubble/android')
  2. Insert the following lines inside the dependencies block in android/app/build.gradle:

      compile project(':react-native-floating-bubble')
  1. This library is not supported for iOS. This functionality is not there.



import { showFloatingBubble, hideFloatingBubble, requestPermission, initialize } from "react-native-floating-bubble"

// To display the bubble over other apps you need to get 'Draw Over Other Apps' permission from androind.
// If you initialize without having the permission App could crash
	.then(() => console.log("Permission Granted"))
	.catch(() => console.log("Permission is not granted"))

// Initialize bubble manage
	.then(() => console.log("Initialized the bubble mange"))

// Show Floating Bubble: x=10, y=10 position of the bubble
showFloatingBubble(10, 10)
	.then(() => console.log("Floating Bubble Added"));

// Hide Floatin Bubble
	.then(() => console.log("Floating Bubble Removed"));


You can listen to bubble press and bubble remove events using DeviceEventEmitter.

Events: floating-bubble-press, floating-bubble-remove

    DeviceEventEmitter.addListener("floating-bubble-press", (e) => {
		// What to do when user press the bubble
		console.log("Press Bubble")
    DeviceEventEmitter.addListener("floating-bubble-remove", (e) => {
		// What to do when user removes the bubble
		console.log("Remove Bubble")

Change Bubble Icon

Place the icon file as android/app/src/main/res/drawable/bubble_icon.png
