react native gradient

Add React Native gradient to your project.

A gradient is a smooth transition or mix of two or more colors or tones. It is a visual effect that generates a seamless transition from one color to the next, usually in a linear or radial pattern. Gradients are often employed to lend depth, dimension, and visual appeal to an image or layout in a variety of design applications such as graphic design, web design, and digital artwork.

In React Native, we can make a gradient design using the react-native-linear-gradient package. The first thing to do is to add this package to our project after which we add the import statement..

Take a look …

yarn add react-native-linear-gradient

React Native Gradient

Here’s the full code for the project …

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { View, Text, StyleSheet } from 'react-native'
import LinearGradient from 'react-native-linear-gradient';

class App extends Component {
      <View style={styles.container}>
      <Text style={styles.heading}>React Native Gradient</Text>
      <View style={styles.gradientContainer}>
      <LinearGradient style={styles.item} colors={['#fc4a1a', '#f7b733', '#192f6a']}>
      <Text style={styles.text}>
         Orange Fun
      <LinearGradient style={styles.item} colors={['#e1eec3', '#f05053']}>
         Velvet Sun
      <LinearGradient style={styles.item} colors={['#1a2a6c', '#b21f1f', '#fdbb2d']}>
         King Yna
      <LinearGradient style={styles.item} colors={['#22c1c3', '#fdbb2d']}>

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  gradientContainer: {
    flex: 1,
    width: '100%',
    flexDirection: 'row',
    justifyContent: 'space-evenly',
    flexWrap: 'wrap',
    marginTop: 36
  item: {
    width: 108,
    height: 108,
    marginBottom: 18,
    alignItems: 'center',
    justifyContent: 'center'
  text: {
    color: 'black'
  heading: {
    textAlign: 'center',
    marginTop: 18,
    fontSize: 27,
    color: 'black',
    fontWeight: 'bold'
export default App;

So in effect we’re just adding the gradient to the different boxes we created using flex-box. You can also choose whether or not you want a 2-or -3-color gradient design as shown in the result below.
