🔗 React-Native LinkedIn

Simple LinkedIn login library for React-Native with WebView into a Modal


Benefits

  • Light: No need to link a native library like others alternatives
  • Simple: Get the token and the expires, you handle your own login with the access_token
  • Sure: open-source
  • Almost readable & understandable code: JavaScript & React

Installation

$ yarn add react-native-linkedin

Security

Please note that you should give your linkedin client id but not your secret key to this component. You should be aware that key can be found if you store it directly to your code. I strongly recommend to not declare client secret key on your code but found a way to keep it secret

  <LinkedInModal
    shouldGetAccessToken={false}
    clientSecret={null}
    clientID="[ Your client id from https://www.linkedin.com/developer/apps ]"
    redirectUri="[ Your redirect uri set into https://www.linkedin.com/developer/apps ]"
    onSuccess={{ authentication_code } => console.log(`Post this ${authentication_code} to your server.`)}
  />

Example

// See ./App.tsx file for details
import React from 'react'
import { StyleSheet, View } from 'react-native'

import LinkedInModal from 'react-native-linkedin'

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    backgroundColor: '#fff',
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
  },
})

export default class AppContainer extends React.Component {
  linkedRef = React.createRef<LinkedInModal>()
  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
        <LinkedInModal
          ref={this.linkedRef}
          clientID="[ Your client id from https://www.linkedin.com/developer/apps ]"
          clientSecret="[ Your client secret from https://www.linkedin.com/developer/apps ]"
          redirectUri="[ Your redirect uri set into https://www.linkedin.com/developer/apps ]"
          onSuccess={token => console.log(token)}
        />
        <Button title="Log Out" onPress={this.linkedRef.current.logoutAsync()} />
      </View>
    )
  }
}
