A React Native Loader Component which uses Airbnb’s Lottie for beautiful loader animations.

Prerequisites

Using React Native CLI

This library uses lottie-react-native to render loader animations. Therefore this library need to be installed and linked to your project before installing this package.

Follow the official instruction and linking guide here.

Using Expo

No need to do anything specific, just install the package itself. Expo already has Lottie library API available and it will take care of the rest.

Install

yarn add react-native-animated-loader

or

npm install react-native-animated-loader --save

Usage

import React from 'react';
import { StyleSheet } from 'react-native';
import AnimatedLoader from "react-native-animated-loader";

export default class Loader extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    this.state = { visible: false };
  }

  componentDidMount() {
    setInterval(() => {
      this.setState({
        visible: !this.state.visible
      });
    }, 2000);
  }

  render() {
    const { visible } = this.state;
    return (
      <AnimatedLoader
        visible={visible}
        overlayColor="rgba(255,255,255,0.75)"
        source={require("./loader.json")}
        animationStyle={styles.lottie}
        speed={1}
      />
    );
  }
}

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  lottie: {
    width: 100,
    height: 100
  }
});
