Simple, performant & type-safe cross platform navigation in React Native / React Native Web


react-native-ridge-navigation ( ⚠️ in beta)

Simple and performant cross platform navigation on iOS, Android and the web with simple and type-safe api for React 18 (alpha)

⚠️ This is beta software, things can break.

Things which are not finished yet:

  • useFocus (like useEffect but for when screen is focused)
  • documentation
  • create universal lazyWithPreload for screens (only on web, but callstack/repack can fix it native too)
  • universal modal (web support too)


  • Superior performance (we use wix/react-native-navigation)
  • Simple api
  • Type safety
  • Type safe routes
  • Type safe params (based on url)
  • Android, iOS & web!
  • Preload data on mouseDown (or more sensitive on hover, see example)
  • Preload component on hover (on web)
  • Automatic deep-linking
  • Lazy load components
  • Real-time light/dark mode

See source of example app

Register screens

You can register screens with a preload function, the params will be automatically in string format based on the url.

// NavigatorRoutes.ts
const PostScreen = registerScreen(
  ({ id }) => {
      queryKeyPostScreen({ id }),
      queryKeyPostScreenPromise({ id })

    // if you return something here it can be used in the screen itself or somewhere else with
    // usePreloadResult(routes.PostScreen)
    // in this case react-query handles it based on queryKey so it's not needed but with it is. 
    // you can put the result of the usePreloadResult in your usePreloadedQuery if you use


const routes = {
  // ...
export default routes

Supported stacks

  • normal
  • bottomTabs
  • sideMenu (in progress)


1. If you don't have an app yet (optional, but recommended)

Create the app with our tool web-ridge/create-react-native-web-application

npx create-react-native-web-application --name myappname

1. Install deps + library

yarn add react-native-navigation react-native-navigation-hooks react-native-ridge-navigation history && npx rnn-link && npx pod-install

or with npm

npm install react-native-navigation react-native-navigation-hooks react-native-ridge-navigation history && npx rnn-link && npx pod-install

2. Extra (optional)

Add react-native-web-image-loader (see example), this will make sure the images in the BottomBar will be in good quality on the web.

const {
} = require('customize-cra');

// ...
    test: /\.(png|jpe?g|gif)$/,
    options: {
      name: 'static/media/[name].[hash:8].[ext]',
      scalings: { '@3x': 1 },
    loader: 'react-native-web-image-loader',
// ...


import {
} from 'react-native-ridge-navigation';

export const NavigationRoots = {
  RootHome: 'home',
  RootAuth: 'auth',

// svg to png
// tab icon
export const BottomRoots = {
  Posts: {
    path: '/post',
    title: () => 'Posts',
    icon: require('./img/palette-swatch-outline/icon-20.png'),
    selectedIcon: require('./img/palette-swatch/icon-20.png'),
    child: routes.PostsScreen,
  Account: {
    path: '/account',
    title: () => 'Account',
    icon: require('./img/account-circle-outline/icon-20.png'),
    selectedIcon: require('./img/account-circle/icon-20.png'),
    child: routes.AccountScreen,

const Navigator = createNavigation(
    [NavigationRoots.RootHome]: createBottomTabsRoot(
      [BottomRoots.Posts, BottomRoots.Account],
      // optional settings
      // {
      //   breakingPointWidth: 500, // default is 1200
      //   components: {
      //      start: BottomTabStart,
      //      end: BottomTabEnd,
      //   },
      // }
    [NavigationRoots.RootAuth]: createNormalRoot(routes.AuthScreen),
    // You can add endless more roots for your app e.g. for different roles of users
    // ...

export default Navigator;

New screen

Use the component as much as possible since it will work with ctrl+click on the web :)

{(linkProps) => ( // or other touchables/buttons go to post )} ">
  params={{ id: `${}` }}
  // mode="default" // optional if sensitive the preload will be called on hover instead of mouseDown
  {(linkProps) => (
    <Pressable  {...linkProps}> // or other touchables/buttons
      <Text>go to post</Text>

Alternative push (or replace)

const { push, replace } = useNavigation();

// call this where if you can't use 
push(routes.PostScreen, {
  id: `${}`

// call this if e.g. after a create you want to go to edit screen
// but without pushing history to the url-stack or app-stack :)
replace(routes.PostScreen, {
  id: `${}`

Switch root

Switch root can be used to switch from e.g. the auth screen to a different entrypoint of your app. E.g. check the role and switch the stacks to different roots for different user roles.

<SwitchRoot rootKey={NavigationRoots.RootHome} params={{}} />;
// or e.g.
<SwitchRoot rootKey={NavigationRoots.RootAuth} params={{}} />;


All available properties

const {
  refreshBottomTabs, // e.g. after language change and you want to update labels
  updateBadge, // updateBadge(BottomRoots.Projects, '10');
  pop, // go back
  switchBottomTabIndex, // switch bottom tab
  preload, // call preload (done automatic on link mouseDown
  push, // calls preload + pushes screen
  replace, // calls preload + pushes screen
} = useNavigation()

Deep linking

You have to enable url schemes etc in your app and it'll work!


// global
  DeepLinking // see deep linking documentation
  OnlyRenderOnce // see deep linking documentation
  BackLink // for now .pop() but we'll update this according to Android guidelines later on (to always go back in hierarchy)
  lazyWithPreload // only available on the web: see example app
  setPreloadResult, // should not need this as it is done automatically

  // hooks
  usePreloadResult // e.g. usePreloadResult(routes.PostScreen)
