    react-native-svg

    Version NPM

    react-native-svg provides SVG support to React Native on iOS and Android, and a compatibility layer for the web.

    Check out the demo

    Looking for maintainers

    https://github.com/react-native-svg/react-native-svg/issues/1554

    Features

    1. Supports most SVG elements and properties (Rect, Circle, Line, Polyline, Polygon, G ...).
    2. Easy to convert SVG code to react-native-svg.

    Installation

    Automatically

    With expo-cli

    The Expo client app comes with the native code installed!

    Install the JavaScript with:

    expo install react-native-svg

    📚 See the Expo docs for more info or jump ahead to Usage.

    With react-native-cli
    1. Install library from npm

      yarn add react-native-svg
    2. Link native code

      With autolinking (react-native 0.60+)

      cd ios && pod install

      Pre 0.60

      react-native link react-native-svg

    NOTICE:

    Due to breaking changes in react-native, the version given in the left column (and higher versions) of react-native-svg only supports the react-native version in the right column (and higher versions, if possible).

    It is recommended to use the version of react given in the peer dependencies of the react-native version you are using.

    The latest version of react-native-svg should always work in a clean react-native project.

    react-native-svg react-native
    3.2.0 0.29
    4.2.0 0.32
    4.3.0 0.33
    4.4.0 0.38
    4.5.0 0.40
    5.1.8 0.44
    5.2.0 0.45
    5.3.0 0.46
    5.4.1 0.47
    5.5.1 >=0.50
    >=6 >=0.50
    >=7 >=0.57.4
    >=8 >=0.57.4
    >=9 >=0.57.4

    Or, include this PR manually for v7+ stability on android for older RN ( included in 0.57-stable and newer).

    The latest version of v6, v7, v8 and v9 should all work in the latest react-native version.

    v7 and newer requires the patch for making android thread safe, to get native animation support.

    Manually

    Android pre RN 0.60
    1. yarn add react-native-svg In RN 0.60+, this is all you should ever need to do get Android working. Before this, react-native link was responsible for the following steps:

    2. Append the following lines to android/settings.gradle:

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

      implementation project(':react-native-svg')
    4. Open up android/app/src/main/java/[...]/MainApplication.java

    • Add import com.horcrux.svg.SvgPackage; to the imports at the top of the file
    • Add new SvgPackage() to the list returned by the getPackages() method. Add a comma to the previous item if there's already something there.
    iOS pre RN 0.60

    Manual linking

    To install react-native-svg on iOS visit the link referenced above or do the following (react-native link should do this for you):

    1. Open your project in XCode and drag the RNSVG.xcodeproj file (located in .../node_modules/react-native-svg/ios) into the Libraries directory shown in XCode.
    2. Expand the RNSVG.xcodeproj file you just added to XCode until you see: libRNSVG.a (located in RNSVG.xcodeproj > Products )
    3. Drag libRNSVG.a into the Link Binary With Libraries section (located in Build Phases which may be found at the top of the XCode window)
    CocoaPods

    Alternatively, you can use CocoaPods to manage your native (Objective-C and Swift) dependencies:

    1. Add RNSVG to your Podfile (with RN 0.60+ autolinking, this is not needed)
    pod 'RNSVG', :path => '../node_modules/react-native-svg'

    If cocoapods is used and if error RNSVGImage.m:12:9: 'React/RCTImageLoader.h' file not found occurs:

    Add the following entry in Podfile:

        pod 'React', :path => '../node_modules/react-native', :subspecs => [
            [...]
            'RCTImage', # <-- Add RCTImage
        ]

    and run pod install from ios folder

    Troubleshooting

    Problems with Proguard

    When Proguard is enabled (which it is by default for Android release builds), it causes runtine error To avoid this, add an exception to android/app/proguard-rules.pro:

    -keep public class com.horcrux.svg.** {*;}

    If you have build errors, then it might be caused by caching issues, please try:

    watchman watch-del-all
    rm -fr $TMPDIR/react-*
    react-native start --reset-cache
    
    Or,
    
    rm -rf node_modules
    yarn
    react-native start --reset-cache

    Unexpected behavior

    If you have unexpected behavior, please create a clean project with the latest versions of react-native and react-native-svg

    react-native init CleanProject
    cd CleanProject/
    yarn add react-native-svg
    cd ios && pod install && cd ..

    Make a reproduction of the problem in App.js

    react-native run-ios
    react-native run-android

    Opening issues

    Verify that it is still an issue with the latest version as specified in the previous step. If so, open a new issue, include the entire App.js file, specify what platforms you've tested, and the results of running this command:

    react-native info

    If you suspect that you've found a spec conformance bug, then you can test using your component in a react-native-web project by forking this codesandbox, to see how different browsers render the same content: https://codesandbox.io/s/pypn6mn3y7 If any evergreen browser with significant userbase or other svg user agent renders some svg content better, or supports more of the svg and related specs, please open an issue asap.

    Usage

    Here's a simple example. To render output like this:

    SVG example

    Use the following code:

    import Svg, {
      Circle,
      Ellipse,
      G,
      Text,
      TSpan,
      TextPath,
      Path,
      Polygon,
      Polyline,
      Line,
      Rect,
      Use,
      Image,
      Symbol,
      Defs,
      LinearGradient,
      RadialGradient,
      Stop,
      ClipPath,
      Pattern,
      Mask,
    } from 'react-native-svg';
    
    /* Use this if you are using Expo
    import * as Svg from 'react-native-svg';
    const { Circle, Rect } = Svg;
    */
    
    import React from 'react';
    import { View, StyleSheet } from 'react-native';
    
    export default class SvgExample extends React.Component {
      render() {
        return (
          <View
            style={[
              StyleSheet.absoluteFill,
              { alignItems: 'center', justifyContent: 'center' },
            ]}
          >
            <Svg height="50%" width="50%" viewBox="0 0 100 100">
              <Circle
                cx="50"
                cy="50"
                r="45"
                stroke="blue"
                strokeWidth="2.5"
                fill="green"
              />
              <Rect
                x="15"
                y="15"
                width="70"
                height="70"
                stroke="red"
                strokeWidth="2"
                fill="yellow"
              />
            </Svg>
          </View>
        );
      }
    }

    Try this on Snack

    Use with content loaded from uri

    import * as React from 'react';
    import { SvgUri } from 'react-native-svg';
    
    export default () => (
      <SvgUri
        width="100%"
        height="100%"
        uri="http://thenewcode.com/assets/images/thumbnails/homer-simpson.svg"
      />
    );

    CSS Support

    If remote SVG file contains CSS in <style> element, use SvgCssUri:

    import * as React from 'react';
    import { SvgCssUri } from 'react-native-svg';
    
    export default () => (
      <SvgCssUri
        width="100%"
        height="100%"
        uri="http://thenewcode.com/assets/svg/accessibility.svg"
      />
    );

    Use with svg files

    Try react-native-svg-transformer to get compile time conversion and cached transformations. https://github.com/kristerkari/react-native-svg-transformer#installation-and-configuration https://github.com/kristerkari/react-native-svg-transformer#for-react-native-v057-or-newer--expo-sdk-v3100-or-newer

    metro.config.js

    const { getDefaultConfig } = require('metro-config');
    
    module.exports = (async () => {
      const {
        resolver: { sourceExts, assetExts },
      } = await getDefaultConfig();
      return {
        transformer: {
          babelTransformerPath: require.resolve('react-native-svg-transformer'),
        },
        resolver: {
          assetExts: assetExts.filter(ext => ext !== 'svg'),
          sourceExts: [...sourceExts, 'svg'],
        },
      };
    })();

    Import your .svg file inside a React component:

    import Logo from './logo.svg';

    You can then use your image as a component:

    <Logo width={120} height={40} />

    Alternatively, you can use SvgXml with babel-plugin-inline-import, but with transforms done at run-time.

    .babelrc

    {
      "presets": ["module:metro-react-native-babel-preset"],
      "plugins": [
        [
          "babel-plugin-inline-import",
          {
            "extensions": [".svg"]
          }
        ]
      ]
    }

    App.js

    import * as React from 'react';
    import { SvgXml } from 'react-native-svg';
    import testSvg from './test.svg';
    export default () => <SvgXml width="200" height="200" xml={testSvg} />;

    Use with xml strings

    import * as React from 'react';
    import { SvgXml } from 'react-native-svg';
    
    const xml = `
      <svg width="32" height="32" viewBox="0 0 32 32">
        <path

    `;
    
    export default () => <SvgXml xml={xml} width="100%" height="100%" />;

    CSS support

    If xml string contains CSS in <style> element, use SvgCss:

    import * as React from 'react';
    import { SvgCss } from 'react-native-svg';
    
    const xml = `
      <svg width="32" height="32" viewBox="0 0 32 32">
        <style>
          .red {
            fill: #ff0000;
          }
        </style>
        <rect class="red" x="0" y="0" width="32" height="32" />
      </svg>
    `;
    
    export default () => <SvgCss xml={xml} width="100%" height="100%" />;

    Common props:

    Name Default Description
    fill '#000' The fill prop refers to the color inside the shape.
    fillOpacity 1 This prop specifies the opacity of the color or the content the current object is filled with.
    fillRule nonzero The fillRule prop determines what side of a path is inside a shape, which determines how fill will paint the shape, can be nonzero or evenodd
    stroke 'none' The stroke prop controls how the outline of a shape appears.
    strokeWidth 1 The strokeWidth prop specifies the width of the outline on the current object.
    strokeOpacity 1 The strokeOpacity prop specifies the opacity of the outline on the current object.
    strokeLinecap 'square' The strokeLinecap prop specifies the shape to be used at the end of open subpaths when they are stroked. Can be either 'butt', 'square' or 'round'.
    strokeLinejoin 'miter' The strokeLinejoin prop specifies the shape to be used at the corners of paths or basic shapes when they are stroked. Can be either 'miter', 'bevel' or 'round'.
    strokeDasharray [] The strokeDasharray prop controls the pattern of dashes and gaps used to stroke paths.
    strokeDashoffset null The strokeDashoffset prop specifies the distance into the dash pattern to start the dash.
    x 0 Translate distance on x-axis.
    y 0 Translate distance on y-axis.
    rotation 0 Rotation degree value on the current object.
    scale 1 Scale value on the current object.
    origin 0, 0 Transform origin coordinates for the current object.
    originX 0 Transform originX coordinates for the current object.
    originY 0 Transform originY coordinates for the current object.

    Supported elements:

    Svg

    <Svg height="100" width="100">
      <Rect x="0" y="0" width="100" height="100" fill="black" />
      <Circle cx="50" cy="50" r="30" fill="yellow" />
      <Circle cx="40" cy="40" r="4" fill="black" />
      <Circle cx="60" cy="40" r="4" fill="black" />
      <Path d="M 40 60 A 10 10 0 0 0 60 60" stroke="black" />
    </Svg>

    Colors set in the Svg element are inherited by its children:

    <Svg
      width="130"
      height="130"
      fill="blue"
      stroke="red"
      color="green"
      viewBox="-16 -16 544 544"
    >
      <Path
        d="M318.37,85.45L422.53,190.11,158.89,455,54.79,350.38ZM501.56,60.2L455.11,13.53a45.93,45.93,0,0,0-65.11,0L345.51,58.24,449.66,162.9l51.9-52.15A35.8,35.8,0,0,0,501.56,60.2ZM0.29,497.49a11.88,11.88,0,0,0,14.34,14.17l116.06-28.28L26.59,378.72Z"
        strokeWidth="32"
      />
      <Path d="M0,0L512,512" stroke="currentColor" strokeWidth="32" />
    </Svg>

    Pencil

    Code explanation:

    • The fill prop defines the color inside the object.
    • The stroke prop defines the color of the line drawn around the object.
    • The color prop is a bit special in the sense that it won't color anything by itself, but define a kind of color variable that can be used by children elements. In this example we're defining a "green" color in the Svg element and using it in the second Path element via stroke="currentColor". The "currentColor" is what refers to that "green" value, and it can be used in other props that accept colors too, e.g. fill="currentColor".

    Rect

    The element is used to create a rectangle and variations of a rectangle shape:

    <Svg width="200" height="60">
      <Rect
        x="25"
        y="5"
        width="150"
        height="50"
        fill="rgb(0,0,255)"
        strokeWidth="3"
        stroke="rgb(0,0,0)"
      />
    </Svg>

    Rect

    Code explanation:

    • The width and height props of the element define the height and the width of the rectangle.
    • The x prop defines the left position of the rectangle (e.g. x="25" places the rectangle 25 px from the left margin).
    • The y prop defines the top position of the rectangle (e.g. y="5" places the rectangle 5 px from the top margin).

    Circle

    The element is used to create a circle:

    <Svg height="100" width="100">
      <Circle cx="50" cy="50" r="50" fill="pink" />
    </Svg>

    Rect

    Code explanation:

    • The cx and cy props define the x and y coordinates of the center of the circle. If cx and cy are omitted, the circle's center is set to (0,0)
    • The r prop defines the radius of the circle

    Ellipse

    The element is used to create an ellipse.

    An ellipse is closely related to a circle. The difference is that an ellipse has an x and a y radius that differs from each other, while a circle has equal x and y radius.

    <Svg height="100" width="110">
      <Ellipse
        cx="55"
        cy="55"
        rx="50"
        ry="30"
        stroke="purple"
        strokeWidth="2"
        fill="yellow"
      />
    </Svg>

    Rect

    Code explanation:

    • The cx prop defines the x coordinate of the center of the ellipse
    • The cy prop defines the y coordinate of the center of the ellipse
    • The rx prop defines the horizontal radius
    • The ry prop defines the vertical radius

    Line

    The element is an SVG basic shape, used to create a line connecting two points.

    <Svg height="100" width="100">
      <Line x1="0" y1="0" x2="100" y2="100" stroke="red" strokeWidth="2" />
    </Svg>

    Rect

    Code explanation:

    • The x1 prop defines the start of the line on the x-axis.
    • The y1 prop defines the start of the line on the y-axis.
    • The x2 prop defines the end of the line on the x-axis.
    • The y2 prop defines the end of the line on the y-axis.

    Polygon

    The element is used to create a graphic that contains at least three sides. Polygons are made of straight lines, and the shape is "closed" (all the lines connect up).

    <Svg height="100" width="100">
      <Polygon
        points="40,5 70,80 25,95"
        fill="lime"
        stroke="purple"
        strokeWidth="1"
      />
    </Svg>

    Rect

    Code explanation:

    • The points prop defines the x and y coordinates for each corner of the polygon

    Polyline

    The element is used to create any shape that consists of only straight lines:

    <Svg height="100" width="100">
      <Polyline
        points="10,10 20,12 30,20 40,60 60,70 95,90"
        fill="none"
        stroke="black"
        strokeWidth="3"
      />
    </Svg>

    Rect

    Code explanation:

    • The points prop defines the x and y coordinates for each point of the polyline

    Path

    The element is used to define a path.

    The following commands are available for path data:

    • M = moveto
    • L = lineto
    • H = horizontal lineto
    • V = vertical lineto
    • C = curveto
    • S = smooth curveto
    • Q = quadratic Bézier curve
    • T = smooth quadratic Bézier curveto
    • A = elliptical Arc
    • Z = closepath

    Note: All of the commands above can also be expressed with lower letters. Capital letters means absolutely positioned, lower cases means relatively positioned. See Path document of SVG to know parameters for each command.

    <Svg height="100" width="100">
      <Path
        d="M25 10 L98 65 L70 25 L16 77 L11 30 L0 4 L90 50 L50 10 L11 22 L77 95 L20 25"
        fill="none"
        stroke="red"
      />
    </Svg>

    Rect

    Text

    The element is used to define text.

    Text

    TSpan

    The element is used to draw multiple lines of text in SVG. Rather than having to position each line of text absolutely, the element makes it possible to position a line of text relatively to the previous line of text.

    <Svg height="160" width="200">

    TSpan

    TextPath

    In addition to text drawn in a straight line, SVG also includes the ability to place text along the shape of a element. To specify that a block of text is to be rendered along the shape of a , include the given text within a element which includes an href attribute with a reference to a element.

    <Svg height="100" width="200">
      <Defs>
        <Path id="path" d={path} />
      </Defs>
      <G y="20">
        <Text fill="blue">
          <TextPath href="#path" startOffset="-10%">
            We go up and down,
            <TSpan fill="red" dy="5,5,5">
              then up again
            </TSpan>
          </TextPath>
        </Text>
        <Path d={path} fill="none" stroke="red" strokeWidth="1" />
      </G>
    </Svg>

    TextPath

    G

    The element is a container used to group other SVG elements. Transformations applied to the g element are performed on all of its child elements, and any of its props are inherited by its child elements. It can also group multiple elements to be referenced later with the <Use /> element.

    <Svg height="100" width="200">
      <G rotation="50" origin="100, 50">
        <Line x1="60" y1="10" x2="140" y2="10" stroke="#060" />
    
        <Rect x="60" y="20" height="50" width="80" stroke="#060" fill="#060" />
    
        <Text x="100" y="75" stroke="#600" fill="#600" textAnchor="middle">
          Text grouped with shapes
        </Text>
      </G>
    </Svg>

    G

    Use

    The element can reuse an SVG shape from elsewhere in the SVG document, including elements and elements. The reused shape can be defined inside the <Defs> element (which makes the shape invisible until used) or outside.

    <Svg height="100" width="300">
      <Defs>
        <G id="shape">
          <G>
            <Circle cx="50" cy="50" r="50" />
            <Rect x="50" y="50" width="50" height="50" />
            <Circle cx="50" cy="50" r="5" fill="blue" />
          </G>
        </G>
      </Defs>
      <Use href="#shape" x="20" y="0" />
      <Use href="#shape" x="170" y="0" />
    </Svg>

    This example shows a element defined inside a <Defs> element. This makes the invisible unless referenced by a element.

    Before the element can be referenced, it must have an ID set on it via its id prop. The element references the element via its href prop. Notice the # in front of the ID in the prop value.

    The element specifies where to show the reused shapes via its x and y props. Notice that the shapes inside the element are located at 0,0. That is done because their position is added to the position specified in the element.

    Symbol

    The SVG element is used to define reusable symbols. The shapes nested inside a are not displayed unless referenced by a element.

    <Svg height="150" width="110">
      <Symbol id="symbol" viewBox="0 0 150 110" width="100" height="50">

      <Use href="#symbol" x="0" y="100" width="50" height="25" />
    </Svg>

    Symbol

    Defs

    The element is used to embed definitions that can be reused inside an SVG image. For instance, you can group SVG shapes together and reuse them as a single shape.

    Image

    The element allows a raster image to be included in an Svg component.

    ClipPath

    The SVG element defines a clipping path. A clipping path is used/referenced using the clipPath property

    LinearGradient

    The element is used to define a linear gradient. The element must be nested within a <Defs> tag. The <Defs> tag is short for definitions and contains definition of special elements (such as gradients).

    Linear gradients can be defined as horizontal, vertical or angular gradients:

    • Horizontal gradients are created when y1 and y2 are equal and x1 and x2 differ
    • Vertical gradients are created when x1 and x2 are equal and y1 and y2 differ
    • Angular gradients are created when x1 and x2 differ and y1 and y2 differ
    <Svg height="150" width="300">
      <Defs>
        <LinearGradient id="grad" x1="0" y1="0" x2="1" y2="0">
          <Stop offset="0" stopColor="#FFD080" stopOpacity="1" />
          <Stop offset="1" stopColor="red" stopOpacity="1" />
        </LinearGradient>
      </Defs>
      <Ellipse cx="150" cy="75" rx="85" ry="55" fill="url(#grad)" />
    </Svg>

    Code explanation:

    • The id prop of the tag defines a unique name for the gradient
    • The x1, x2, y1,y2 props of the tag define the start and end position of the gradient
    • The color range for a gradient can be composed of two or more colors. Each color is specified with a tag. The offset prop is used to define where the gradient color begin and end
    • The fill prop links the ellipse element to the gradient

    LinearGradient

    NOTICE: LinearGradient also supports percentage as prop:

    <LinearGradient id="grad" x1="0%" y1="0%" x2="100%" y2="0%">
      <Stop offset="0%" stopColor="rgb(255,255,0)" stopOpacity="0" />
      <Stop offset="100%" stopColor="red" stopOpacity="1" />
    </LinearGradient>

    This result is same as the example before. But it's recommend to use exact number instead; it has performance advantages over using percentages.

    RadialGradient

    The element is used to define a radial gradient. The element must be nested within a <Defs> tag. The <Defs> tag is short for definitions and contains definition of special elements (such as gradients).

    <Svg height="150" width="300">
      <Defs>
        <RadialGradient
          id="grad"
          cx="150"
          cy="75"
          rx="85"
          ry="55"
          fx="150"
          fy="75"
          gradientUnits="userSpaceOnUse"
        >
          <Stop offset="0" stopColor="#ff0" stopOpacity="1" />
          <Stop offset="1" stopColor="#83a" stopOpacity="1" />
        </RadialGradient>
      </Defs>
      <Ellipse cx="150" cy="75" rx="85" ry="55" fill="url(#grad)" />
    </Svg>

    Code explanation:

    • The id prop of the tag defines a unique name for the gradient
    • The cx, cy and r props define the outermost circle and the fx and fy define the innermost circle
    • The color range for a gradient can be composed of two or more colors. Each color is specified with a tag. The offset prop is used to define where the gradient color begin and end
    • The fill prop links the ellipse element to the gradient

    RadialGradient

    Mask

    In SVG, you can specify that any other graphics object or ‘G’ element can be used as an alpha mask for compositing the current object into the background.

    A mask is defined with a ‘Mask’ element. A mask is used/referenced using the ‘mask’ property.

    A ‘Mask’ can contain any graphical elements or container elements such as a ‘G’.

    The element must be nested within a <Defs> tag. The <Defs> tag is short for definitions and contains definition of special elements (such as gradients).

    Code explanation: https://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/masking.html#MaskElement

    Mask

    v10 adds experimental support for using masks together with native elements. If you had native elements inside any Svg root before (which was unsupported), Then your content might change appearance when upgrading, as e.g. transforms and masks now take effect.

    Pattern

    A pattern is used to fill or stroke an object using a pre-defined graphic object which can be replicated ("tiled") at fixed intervals in x and y to cover the areas to be painted. Patterns are defined using a ‘pattern’ element and then referenced by properties ‘fill’ and ‘stroke’ on a given graphics element to indicate that the given element shall be filled or stroked with the referenced pattern. The element must be nested within a <Defs> tag. The <Defs> tag is short for definitions and contains definition of special elements (such as gradients).

    Marker

    A marker is a symbol which is attached to one or more vertices of ‘path’, ‘line’, ‘polyline’ and ‘polygon’ elements. Typically, markers are used to make arrowheads or polymarkers. Arrowheads can be defined by attaching a marker to the start or end vertices of ‘path’, ‘line’ or ‘polyline’ elements. Polymarkers can be defined by attaching a marker to all vertices of a ‘path’, ‘line’, ‘polyline’ or ‘polygon’ element.

    The graphics for a marker are defined by a ‘marker’ element. To indicate that a particular ‘marker’ element should be rendered at the vertices of a particular ‘path’, ‘line’, ‘polyline’ or ‘polygon’ element, set one or more marker properties (‘marker’, ‘marker-start’, ‘marker-mid’ or ‘marker-end’) to reference the given ‘marker’ element.

    MarkerRendering

    Code explanation: https://www.w3.org/TR/SVG2/painting.html#VertexMarkerProperties

    ForeignObject

    SVG is designed to be compatible with other XML languages for describing and rendering other types of content. The ‘foreignObject’ element allows for inclusion of elements in a non-SVG namespace which is rendered within a region of the SVG graphic using other user agent processes. The included foreign graphical content is subject to SVG transformations, filters, clipping, masking and compositing.

    One goal for SVG is to provide a mechanism by which other XML language processors can render into an area within an SVG drawing, with those renderings subject to the various transformations and compositing parameters that are currently active at a given point within the SVG content tree. One particular example of this is to provide a frame for XML content styled with CSS or XSL so that dynamically reflowing text (subject to SVG transformations and compositing) could be inserted into the middle of some SVG content.

    Touch Events

    Touch events are supported in react-native-svg. These include:

    • disabled
    • onPress
    • onPressIn
    • onPressOut
    • onLongPress
    • delayPressIn
    • delayPressOut
    • delayLongPress

    You can use these events to provide interactivity to your react-native-svg components.

    <Circle
      cx="50%"
      cy="50%"
      r="38%"
      fill="red"
      onPress={() => alert('Press on Circle')}
    />
