For simplicity the following guide is based on boilerplate react native app react-native init MyApp with git diff syntax for adding and removing lines from the boilerplate app.
  1. First, follow the official get started guide on setting up the React Native environment, setting up the environment, and creating a React Native project. The following steps will assume your app is created through react-native init MyApp.
  2. In MyApp folder, install react-native-pdftron by calling:
npm install git+ --save
  1. Then link the module by calling:

    react-native link react-native-pdftron
  2. Add a Podfile in the ios folder with the following:

    target 'MyApp' do
        pod 'PDFNet', podspec: ''
  3. In the ios folder, run:

    pod install
  4. If you need a close button icon, you will need to add the PNG resources to MyApp as well, i.e. ic_close_black_24px.
  5. Open MyApp.xcworkspace in Xcode and try to build it. If any errors occur, change the project settings as described here.
