To get started with our template, run one of the following commands:

# using npx, install our latest version from npm
npx react-native init MyApp [email protected]/react-native-template

# using npx and the github repo directly
npx react-native init MyApp --template=https://github.com/echobind/react-native-template

# using yarn & the react-native cli
yarn global add react-native-cli
react-native init MyApp --template=https://github.com/echobind/react-native-template

If you see an error after installing using the first option, pass the flag --ignore-existing and run:

npx --ignore-existing react-native init MyApp [email protected]/react-native-template

About The Project

Here at Echobind, we value developer productivity. After having built lots of React Native projects, we decided to put together our own template to speed up development. Our template includes the following:

๐Ÿ† Dev Productivity:

  • Hygen templates to easily generate components, screens, and utils with tests and stories.
  • vscode settings for common overrides ( ๐ŸŽจ Colors, formatOnSave and rulers width that matches prettier)
  • default Fastlane scripts for icon generation
  • global styles and colors
  • react-navigation preconfigured with a common setup
  • Pre-configured scripts in package.json to start the app & deal with simulators
  • Setup lint-staged to run eslint checks on precommit
  • Setup the app for TypeScript

We hope it saves you as much time as it saves us! ๐Ÿ‘

Built With

Getting Started


While not required, we recommend using a version manager for Ruby and Node. Some popular version managers are:

** Ruby **

** Node **

Follow the install docs for the version manager of your choice.

During the setup proceess, we will automatically check the versions on your machine and prompt you to install anything you're missing.


In order to use this template, follow these steps:

  1. Initialize a new react-native app: npx react-native init MyApp --template=https://github.com/echobind/react-native-template
  2. Change directories into your new app: cd MyApp
  3. Run the setup script: node ./setup. A successful setup will give you the green light: โœ… Setup completed!

During the setup process we will do the following:

  • Setup a display name for your app
  • Setup a bundle identifier (ex: com.myapp.mobile)
  • Use Solidarity to ensure your environment has all expected dependencies installed
  • Run bundle install and pod install so you don't have to
  • Setup placeholder icon and a splash screen
  • Setup the first integration test which can be run with the scripts from your package.json with yarn e2e:ios-debug or yarn e2e:android-debug (android emulator must be setup and open)


If you get an error with an iOS Release build for ios/Pods/OpenSSL-Universal/ios/lib/libcrypto.a(cryptlib.o) You should be able to resolve by updating the build settings image

CI / Deployment:

In order to set up CI/Deployment, we've created custom hygen templates to save you time. These live in our hygen-templates-echobind repository. You'll find installation instructions, which will allow you to set up the following:

  • CircleCI preconfigured for React Native. Fast build times!
  • Fastlane lanes for alpha, beta, and production releases. These should be run on CI only!
  • AppCenter integration for easy alpha distribution

After installing those, head into the "Setup CircleCI" docs in ./docs/circle-ci.md, which will walk you through the installation.

For more info, please follow the instructions in the hygen-templates-echobind repo.
