React Native plugin for Bugfender

React Native plugin for Bugfender

Getting started

The Bugfender bindings for React Native depend on the native iOS and Android Bugfender SDKs.

Creating a RN new project compatible with Bugfender

You can create a new project using

$ npx react-native init AwesomeProject

or if you already started your project using the tool create-react-native-app you will need to eject your project in order to add native modules.

More info can be found in the official docs

Before moving to the next point compile the project and ensure you can execute. In this way, we can discard issues in the next steps.

Adding Bugfender to your project

Please note: if you’re using Expo for development, be sure to be using the “bare workflow”.

$ cd path_to_your_project

1. Add the bugfender plugin from npm

$ npm install @bugfender/rn-bugfender --save

If you want to use cocoapods (recommended), skip the step 2 and go to the step 3B. For manual installation, proceed with the steps 2 and 3A.

2. Link to your project

// Add the classes of the plugin to your android and iOS projects 
$ npx react-native link @bugfender/rn-bugfender`


You are done!


3A. Manual installation

Download the latest release from Github and copy BugfenderSDK.framework to YourAwesomeProjectDirectory/ios (same directory as AwesomeProject.xcodeproj). Then, follow the instructions to setup your project manually:

  • Go to your Project > Your Target > General > Linked Frameworks and Libraries and drag BugfenderSDK.framework there (uncheck the “Copy items if needed” checkbox).

  • Make sure you have linked SystemConfiguration.framework, Security.framework, MobileCoreServices.framework and libc++.tbd as well.

  • If you are using Swift, add the Bugfender.swift helper file to your project.

3B. Cocoapods (recommended)

  1. Ensure your iOS project contains a Podfile, otherwise you need to add it now:
$ cd path_to_your_project/ios
$ pod init

  1. Link your project:
// Add the classes of the plugin to your android and iOS projects 
$ npx react-native link @bugfender/rn-bugfender`

Make sure you’re targeting at least iOS platform version 10 (specify platform :ios, '10.0').

A new line should have been added automatically to your Podfile:

pod 'RNBugfender', :path => '../node_modules/@bugfender/rn-bugfender'

  1. After configuring the podfile you can now go to the console and run

$ pod install

When the installation has finished you should be able to run your project in iOS and Android.

Remember that you should be using the Xcode workspace instead of the xcodeproj file from now on.

Important: the podspec of RNBugfender declares React as a dependency. Your Podfile must explicitly override that React dependency. Like this:

pod 'React', path: '../node_modules/react-native'

If you created your project with the react-native cli from React Native 0.60 or newer your podfile should be already prepared. For older versions of react-native you must ensure to override it. Otherwise, cocoapods will download and install a new version in your iOS folder and you will end up with all the React libraries duplicated.

At the end of this document you can find a recommended podfile. You can use it as an example.

If you have any problems compiling or executing, try our Troubleshooting section at the end of this document.

RNBugfender Usage

import Bugfender from '@bugfender/rn-bugfender';

// Init Bugfender with your APP key 

// Sending logs with default level 
Bugfender.d ("REACT", "This is a debug log in Bugfender from React Native");

// Sending logs with warning level 
Bugfender.w ("REACT", "This is a debug log in Bugfender from React Native");

// Sending logs with error level 
Bugfender.e ("REACT", "This is a debug log in Bugfender from React Native");

// Low level logs 
Bugfender.log (1001, "method", "file", "Debug", "tag", "Sending low level log.");
Bugfender.log (1001, "method", "file", "Error", "tag", "Sending low level log.");
Bugfender.log (1001, "method", "file", "Warning", "tag", "Sending low level log.");

// Creating issues 
Bugfender.sendIssue ("New issue", "This will create a new issue in Bugfender");

// Send user feedback 
Bugfender.sendUserFeedback ("New feedback", "This will create a new feedback in Bugfender");

// Set values 
Bugfender.setDeviceString ("device.key.string", "fake.string.value");
Bugfender.setDeviceBoolean ("device.key.boolean", true);
Bugfender.setDeviceFloat ("device.key.float", 101);
Bugfender.setDeviceInteger ("device.key.integer", 102);

Cocoapods Troubleshooting

We did our best to create a installation process that worked for most of the users. However, the React Native configuration can be tricky sometimes.

Most of the issues are related to the high number of dependencies and the compatibility between them. As every project is different and has different needs it’s difficult to provide a magic receipt that can work out of the box, however we find out that the following Podfile compiles and run correctly most of the time. You can use it as a basis to experiment and find a configuration that works for you.

Recommended Podfile

platform :ios, '9.0'

target 'SampleProject' do
  # Comment the next line if you don't want to use dynamic frameworks

  # Pods for SampleProject
  pod 'AFNetworking'

  # Add new pods below this line
  pod 'RNBugfender', :path => '../node_modules/@bugfender/rn-bugfender'

  rn_path = '../node_modules/react-native'

  pod 'yoga', path: "#{rn_path}/ReactCommon/yoga"
  pod 'Folly', :podspec => '../node_modules/react-native/third-party-podspecs/Folly.podspec'
  pod 'React', path: rn_path, subspecs: [


If you are not able to get your project working you can still try to add RNBugfender with the Manual Installation or to open an issue in Github and maybe we can help you.

Happy debugging!

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.
