Attention: Please use the AWS Amplify library for React Native development of new projects on AWS.

We've also released a React Native starter kit at This kit demonstrates a working React Native app with the following services:

  • Amazon Cognito User Pools
  • Amazon Cognito Federated Identities
  • Amazon API Gateway
  • AWS Lambda
  • Amazon DynamoDB
  • Amazon S3
  • AWS Mobile Hub

This developer preview is currently under review and we will be looking to merge the contents in the future under a single repository for all AWS React Native functionality. In the meantime, we recommend you leverage the AWS Amplify library or the AWS JavaScript SDK with React Native support.

AWS SDK for React Native

We’re excited to offer a developer preview of the AWS SDK for React Native. The SDK includes support for the following services:

  1. Amazon S3 to store user data, including photos and videos, in the cloud. It uses the TransferUtility, which simplifies file transfers between your app and the cloud.
  2. Amazon DynamoDB to store data into a NoSQL database.
  3. AWS Lambda to run serverless code in the cloud without the need for backend infrastructure.
  4. Amazon SNS to send and receive push notifications.

The SDK core uses Amazon Cognito Identity as the authentication provider to comply with best practices for mobile app development.
