<Onboarding /> npm npm

There are many ways to onboard people to your mobile app. But for React-Native, there is solely one component that is a) easy to setup and b) highly customizable: react-native-onboarding-swiper.

Your new users shouldn't jump in at the deep end. First give them a pleasurable, delightful introduction and only then let them explore your awesome app.

Getting everything running merely takes a minute. Don't believe me? Try it out!


npm i react-native-onboarding-swiper
import Onboarding from 'react-native-onboarding-swiper';


      backgroundColor: '#fff',
      image: <Image source={require('./images/circle.png')} />,
      title: 'Onboarding',
      subtitle: 'Done with React Native Onboarding Swiper',


Try out the example running in your browser.
