react-native-shake v3.3.1

Detect shake event on Android and iOS

React Native Shake Event Detector

With this library, you can add shake event detector on your React Native app. Because react-native-shake-event is not in active development anymore, I decided to created this.

Please note that it only works on real devices


npm install react-native-shake


yarn add react-native-shake

Linking the native modules


react-native link react-native-shake

Manual (iOS):

  1. Add the ios/RNShakeEvent.xcodeproj file to your Xcode project Demo;

  componentWillMount() {
    RNShake.addEventListener('ShakeEvent', () => {

  componentWillUnmount() {
