cd my-project/

docker run -t -i \
  -v $(pwd):/workspace \
  -v ~/.gradle/:/home/user/.gradle/ \
  -w /workspace \
  -e LOCAL_USER_ID=`id -u $USER` \
  adambene/react-native-android \
  /bin/sh -c "cd android && ./gradlew --stacktrace assembleRelease"

package.json & npm

Build a React Native project for Android with npm.

  "scripts": {
    "build-with-docker-debug": "docker run -t -i -v $(pwd):/workspace -v ~/.gradle/:/home/user/.gradle/ -w /workspace -e LOCAL_USER_ID=`id -u $USER` adambene/react-native-android /bin/sh -c \"cd android && ./gradlew --stacktrace assembleDebug\"",
    "build-with-docker-release": "docker run -t -i -v $(pwd):/workspace -v ~/.gradle/:/home/user/.gradle/ -w /workspace -e LOCAL_USER_ID=`id -u $USER` adambene/react-native-android /bin/sh -c \"cd android && ./gradlew --stacktrace assembleRelease\""
npm run build-with-docker-debug
npm run build-with-docker-release


The container runs the command with username user and user id LOCAL_USER_ID. This is important to avoid permission problems. The built files are owned by user not the root.

### Volumes Projects directory as workspace and host's ~/.gradle/ directory is needed.


Debug and release APK are built into the usual build directory android/app/build/outputs/apk/.


You can override the following defaults either in your Dockerfile or command line using -e.

ENV ANDROID_COMPONENTS platform-tools,build-tools-23.0.1,build-tools-23.0.3,android-23
ENV GOOGLE_COMPONENTS extra-android-m2repository,extra-google-m2repository,extra-google-google_play_services,extra-google-gcm
