React Native

ElectricSQL supports React Native via the react-native-sqlite-storage driver.


Add react-native-sqlite-storage as a dependency to your app, e.g.:

yarn add react-native-sqlite-storage

See the react-native-sqlite-storage README for additional steps -- basically you need to configure the native modules for your target environments.


You can use react-native-sqlite-storage with or without the promise API enabled. The example below shows using it with promises enabled:

import SQLite from 'react-native-sqlite-storage'
import { electrify } from 'electric-sql/react-native'

// Import your generated database schema.
import { schema } from './generated/client'

// Define your config with an least an auth token.
// See Usage -> Authentication for more details.
const config = {
auth: {
token: '...'

// Enable the promise API. Note that we use the
// `promisesEnabled` flag again below to tell the
// driver adapter that we're using the promise API.
const promisesEnabled = true

// Create the react-native-sqlite-storage database
// connection. The first argument is your database
// name. Changing this will create/use a new local
// database file.
const conn = await SQLite.openDatabase('electric.db')

// Instantiate your electric client.
const electric = await electrify(conn, schema, promisesEnabled, config)

You can now use the client to read, write and sync data, e.g.:

const { db } = electric

const results = db.projects.findMany()

See Usage -> Data access and Integrations -> Frontend for more information.
