React Native Dynamic Deck Swiper

react-native-dynamic-deck-swiper

Overview

This is a React Native component for creating a Tinder-like deck swiper where you can specify the next card based on the user's swipe direction and the previous cards, instead of needing to initialize the component with the whole deck upfront.

Example use case

Imagine you want to build an interactive card swiping game, like Reigns on iOS. Maybe the user has to navigate a maze using left and right swipes. In this case, you can't specify the full, linear deck of cards because the next card shown depends on which direction the user swiped. Using this component you would pass a function into the getNextCardData prop that returns the data for the next card based on which direction the user swiped.

See below for a code example.

Installation

npm install react-native-dynamic-deck-swiper --save

Prior Work

The code for this component is adapted from the tutorial created by Unsure Programmer (Varun Nath).

      <Swiper
        getNextCardData={({ first, left, right, previousCards }) => {
          if (previousCards.length >= 10) {
            // End of deck
            return null;
          }
          if (first) {
            return 'This is the first card. This is card #1.';
          } else if (left) {
            return `You swiped to the left. This is card #${previousCards.length +
              1}.`;
          } else if (right) {
            return `You swiped to the right. This is card #${previousCards.length +
              1}.`;
          }
        }}
      >
        {(card) =>
          card === null ? (

  1. cd example/
  2. npm install
  3. npm start

You can change the example code by editing App.js

For specific usage info, see the Expo CLI docs.

Updating the Swiper component

  1. Make edits to the code in the src/ directory.
  2. From the root project directory, above example/, run npm pack.
  3. In the example/ directory, run npm install ../react-native-dynamic-deck-swiper-X.Y.Z.tgz where X.Y.Z is the current version of the file. This should update package-lock.json.
  4. Then run npm start.

Don't forget to bump project and example versions in package.json whenever you submit a PR.
