Breaking Change

Make sure you read this documentation carefully, as the usage instructions had been changed since react-native-onesignal v3.0.2.

Note Regarding 0.39 <= React Native >= 0.40 Support

TL;DR - Install the latest version, doesn't matter on what RN version you are.

Since version 3.0.2, this module supports backwards compatibiltiy with React Native 0.39 and below, without installing a custom version. Everyone should now update to the latest version available for this module.

Running Example project

For your convenience, we created an example project, based on React Native 0.41.2. You can run this project to test configurations, debug, and build upon it.

  • git clone https://github.com/geektimecoil/react-native-onesignal
  • cd react-native-onesignal && cd examples && cd RNOneSignal
  • yarn && cd ios && pod update && cd ..
  • Running the iOS example app: react-native run-ios
  • Running the Android example app: react-native run-android

                               settings:@{kOSSettingsKeyAutoPrompt: @false}];
      
  • You're All Set!

Usage

In your index.android.js or index.ios.js:

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import OneSignal from 'react-native-onesignal'; // Import package from node modules
...

export default class App extends Component {

    componentWillMount() {
        OneSignal.addEventListener('received', this.onReceived);
        OneSignal.addEventListener('opened', this.onOpened);
        OneSignal.addEventListener('registered', this.onRegistered);
        OneSignal.addEventListener('ids', this.onIds);
    }

    componentWillUnmount() {
        OneSignal.removeEventListener('received', this.onReceived);
        OneSignal.removeEventListener('opened', this.onOpened);
        OneSignal.removeEventListener('registered', this.onRegistered);
        OneSignal.removeEventListener('ids', this.onIds);
    }

    onReceived(notification) {
        console.log("Notification received: ", notification);
    }

    onOpened(openResult) {
      console.log('Message: ', openResult.notification.payload.body);
      console.log('Data: ', openResult.notification.payload.additionalData);
      console.log('isActive: ', openResult.notification.isAppInFocus);
      console.log('openResult: ', openResult);
    }

    onRegistered(notifData) {
        console.log("Device had been registered for push notifications!", notifData);
    }

    onIds(device) {
        console.log('Device info: ', device);
    }
    ...
}

API

Handling Notifications

When any notification is opened or received the opened and received are activated and calling their callback functions defined in the listeners, passing an OSNotificationOpenResult or an OSNotification object encapsulating the event data.

componentWillMount() {
    OneSignal.addEventListener('received', this.onReceived);
    OneSignal.addEventListener('opened', this.onOpened);
}

componentWillUnmount() {
    OneSignal.removeEventListener('received', this.onReceived);
    OneSignal.removeEventListener('opened', this.onOpened);
}

onReceived(notification) {
    console.log("Notification received: ", notification);
}

onOpened(openResult) {
    console.log('Message: ', openResult.notification.payload.body);
    console.log('Data: ', openResult.notification.payload.additionalData);
    console.log('isActive: ', openResult.notification.isAppInFocus);
    console.log('openResult: ', openResult);
}

Notification object received example:

{
    shown: true, // BOOLEAN: If the notification was displayed to the user or not
    payload: {notificationID : "", contentAvailable : false, badge : 1, sound : "default", title : "Hello!", body : "World", launchURL : "", }, // OBJECT; the push data
    displayType: 1, //The display method of a received notification
    silentNotification: false // BOOLEAN : Wether the received notification was a silent one
}

Sending and Getting OneSignal Tags

We exposed the tags API of OneSignal to allow you to target users with notification later.

// Sending single tag
OneSignal.sendTag("key", "value");

// Sending multiple tags
OneSignal.sendTags({key: "value", key2: "value2"});

// Getting the tags from the server and use the received object
OneSignal.getTags((receivedTags) => {
    console.log(receivedTags);
});

// Delete a tag
OneSignal.deleteTag("key");

Set Email for Better Targeting

Sync hashed email if you have a login system or collect it. Will be used to reach the user at the most optimal time of day.

OneSignal.syncHashedEmail("test@domain.com");

Getting Player ID and Push Token

We exposed the idsAvailable API of OneSignal (both Android & iOS) as an event. Listen for ids event and define a callback to handle the returned object.

componentWillMount() {
    OneSignal.addEventListener('ids', this.onIds);
}

componentWillUnmount() {
    OneSignal.removeEventListener('ids', this.onIds);
}

onIds(device) {
    console.log('Device info: ', device);
}

Enable Vibration

We exposed the enableVibrate API of OneSignal (Android only).

You can call this from your UI from a button press for example to give your user's options for your notifications. By default OneSignal always vibrates the device when a notification is displayed unless the device is in a total silent mode. Passing false means that the device will only vibrate lightly when the device is in it's vibrate only mode.

// Setting enableVibrate
OneSignal.enableVibrate(true);

Enable Sound

We exposed the enableSound API of OneSignal (Android only).

You can call this from your UI from a button press for example to give your user's options for your notifications. By default OneSignal plays the system's default notification sound when the device's notification system volume is turned on. Passing false means that the device will only vibrate unless the device is set to a total silent mode.

// Setting enableSound
OneSignal.enableSound(true);

Set In App Focus Behavior

We exposed the inFocusDisplaying API of OneSignal.

Android:

  • 0 = None - Will not display a notification, instead only onNotificationReceived will fire where you can display your own in app messages.
  • 1 = InAppAlert - (Default) Will display an Android AlertDialog with the message contains.
  • 2 = Notification - Notification will display in the Notification Shade. Same as when the app is not in focus.
// Example, always display notification in shade.
OneSignal.inFocusDisplaying(2);

iOS:

On the init function in AppDelegate.m, add the settings parameter to specify custom settings. In this case, it would be the kOSSettingsKeyInFocusDisplayOption which can be set to 3 options:

  1. OSNotificationDisplayTypeNotification - Display the native notification display.
  2. OSNotificationDisplayTypeInAppAlert - Display an alert with the notification. Default value.
  3. OSNotificationDisplayTypeNone - Silent. Do not display any notification when the app is in focus.
self.oneSignal = [[RCTOneSignal alloc] initWithLaunchOptions:launchOptions
                     appId:@"YOUR APP ID"
                     settings:@{kOSSettingsKeyInFocusDisplayOption : @(OSNotificationDisplayTypeNone), kOSSettingsKeyAutoPrompt : @YES}];

Change User Subscription Status

We exposed the setSubscription API of OneSignal (both Android & iOS).

You can call this method with false to opt users out of receiving all notifications through OneSignal. You can pass true later to opt users back into notifications

// Setting setSubscription
OneSignal.setSubscription(true);

Check Push Notification and User Subscription Status

We exposed the getPermissionSubscriptionState API of OneSignal (both Android & iOS).

Allows you to check whether notifications are enabled for the app, whether user is subscribed to notifications through OneSignal, and what the user's in-app subscription preference is. It also provides access to pushToken and userId

// Check push notification and OneSignal subscription statuses
OneSignal.getPermissionSubscriptionState((status) => {
    console.log(status);
});

Post Notification (Peer-to-Peer Notifications)

We exposed the postNotification API of OneSignal, currently supports one Player ID to send a notification to. We call it internally P2P Notification, and therefore there is a special attribute to listen to while receiving the notification.

Allows you to send notifications from user to user or schedule ones in the future to be delivered to the current device.

The OneSignal documentation shows how to pass the parameters as here:

// Calling postNotification
let data = arr // some array as payload
let contents = {
    'en': 'You got notification from user'
}
OneSignal.postNotification(contents, data, playerId);

// Listening to postNotification using OneSignal.Configure:
onNotificationOpened: function(message, data, isActive) {
    if (data.p2p_notification) {
        for (var num in data.p2p_notification) {
            // console.log(data.p2p_notification[num]);
        }
    }
}

Prompt Location

We exposed the promptLocation API of OneSignal.

Prompts the user for location permissions. This allows for geotagging so you can send notifications to users based on location. Note: Make sure you also have the required location permission in your AndroidManifest.xml. For iOS, make sure you set the NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription or the NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription in your info.plist. (Location Always also requires the location background mode capability)

// Calling promptLocation
OneSignal.promptLocation();

Clear Notifications (Android Only)

We exposed the clearOneSignalNotifications API of OneSignal (currently supported only on Android).

Removes all OneSignal notifications from the Notification Shade.

// Calling clearOneSignalNotifications
OneSignal.clearOneSignalNotifications();

Cancel Notifications (Android Only)

We exposed the cancelNotification API of OneSignal (currently supported only on Android).

Cancels a single OneSignal notification based on its Android notification integer id. You can get the notification Id when invoking OneSignal.onNotificationOpened while receiving a notification.

// Calling cancelNotification
OneSignal.cancelNotification(id);

Check Push Notification Permissions (iOS Only)

See what push permissions are currently enabled. callback will be invoked with a permissions object (currently supported only on iOS).

// Requesting permissions
OneSignal.checkPermissions((permissions) => {
    console.log(permissions);
});

Request Push Notification Permissions (iOS Only)

We exposed the requestPermissions method (currently supported only on iOS).

// Setting requestPermissions
permissions = {
    alert: true,
    badge: true,
    sound: true
};
OneSignal.requestPermissions(permissions);

Register For Push Notifications (iOS Only)

We exposed the registerForPushNotifications API of OneSignal (currently supported only on iOS).

*Call when you want to prompt the user to accept push notifications. Only call once and only if you passed @NO to kOSSettingsKeyAutoPrompt on init.

// Calling registerForPushNotifications
OneSignal.registerForPushNotifications();

The following example is from our own App and needs to be customized in order to work.

Example:

_syncOneSignal = () => {
    var allTags = {};
    var missingTags = {};

    OneSignal.getTags((receivedTags) => {
        // Find missing tags
        for (var i = this.categories.length * 1; i >= 0; i--) {
            var category = this.categories[i];
            if (!(category.slug in receivedTags)) {
                missingTags[category.slug] = category.is_push_default;
            }
            // Hash all tags for performance later on deletion
            allTags[category.slug] = category.is_push_default;
        };

        // Send missing tags if there are any
        if (Object.keys(missingTags).length > 0) {
            OneSignal.sendTags(missingTags);
        }

        // Delete tags that doesn't show up in the categories
        Object.keys(receivedTags).forEach(function(key,index) {
            if (!(key in allTags)) {
                OneSignal.deleteTag(key);
            }
        });
    });
};

FAQ / Repeating Issues

The following issues has been marked as repeating, therefore we decided to devote them a separate section.

Issue 1 - Multiple dex files define:

> com.android.build.api.transform.TransformException: com.android.ide.common.process.ProcessException: java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: com.android.dex.DexException: Multiple dex files define Lcom/google/android/gms/internal/zzr;

Solution: Update all your Google Play Services dependencies to the latest version rather than to a specific version.

From the Google Play Services documentation: Be sure you update this version number each time Google Play services is updated https://developers.google.com/android/guides/setup#add_google_play_services_to_your_project

In android/app/build.gradle

...
dependencies {
    ...
    compile "com.google.android.gms:play-services-base:+"
    compile "com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:+"
    compile "com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:+"
}

Issue 2 - Multiple dex files define (Again):

:app:dexRelease
Unknown source file : UNEXPECTED TOP-LEVEL EXCEPTION:
Unknown source file : com.android.dex.DexException: Multiple dex files define Landroid/support/v7/appcompat/R$anim;

Solution: Upgrade your gradle to properly handle the dex tasks:

In android/build.gradle

...
dependencies {
    classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.2.3'

    // NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
    // in the individual module build.gradle files
}

In android/gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.properties

distributionBase=GRADLE_USER_HOME
distributionPath=wrapper/dists
zipStoreBase=GRADLE_USER_HOME
zipStorePath=wrapper/dists
distributionUrl=https://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-2.14.1-all.zip

Issue 3 - symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64 and/or OneSignal/OneSignal.h file not found

Please double check the iOS Installation section as missing a step or entering an incorrect path will create these errors.

Issue 4 - Make react-native-onesignal work with react-native-maps

If you have both react native maps and react-native-onesignal make sure you compile react-native-maps in the following way (android/app/build.gradle).

compile(project(':react-native-maps')){
    exclude group: 'com.google.android.gms', module: 'play-services-base'
    exclude group: 'com.google.android.gms', module: 'play-services-maps'
  }
  compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-base:+'
  compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-maps:+'

Manually updating iOS OneSignalNativeSDK

When you install react-native-onesignal it will automaticly include a specific version of the OneSignal iOS native SDK that is known to work with it. Only follow the instructions below if there is a native OneSignal SDK fix you need that isn't included already in the latest react-native-onesignal update.

  1. Download the latest OneSignal iOS native release.
  2. In XCode, delete OneSignalNativeSDK under Libraries/RCTOneSignal.xcodeproj
  3. Press "Move to trash"
  4. Create a new OneSignalNativeSDK folder under node_modules/react-native-onesignal/ios/.
  5. From the downloaded iOS native release, copy all .h and .m files from the iOS_SDK folder and put them in to OneSignalNativeSDK.
  6. Drop and drag this new OneSignalNativeSDK folder under the RCTOneSignal.xcodeproj in Xccode.
  7. Select "Create groups" and check RCTOneSignal and press Finish.
