react-native-tus-client v1.1.0

React Native client for the tus resumable upload protocol


React Native client for the tus resumable upload protocol inspired to tus-js-client.

It provides a native tus compliant implementation through the official TUSKit and tus-android-client libraries.

Getting started

$ npm install react-native-tus-client --save


$ yarn add react-native-tus-client

Mostly automatic installation

# RN >= 0.60
cd ios && pod install

# RN < 0.60
react-native link react-native-tus-client

Manual installation


  1. In XCode, in the project navigator, right click LibrariesAdd Files to [your project's name]
  2. Go to node_modulesreact-native-tus-client and add RNTusClient.xcodeproj
  3. In XCode, in the project navigator, select your project. Add libRNTusClient.a to your project's Build PhasesLink Binary With Libraries
  4. Run your project (Cmd+R)


  1. Open up android/app/src/main/java/[...]/
  • Add import com.vinzscam.RNTusClientPackage; to the imports at the top of the file
  • Add new RNTusClientPackage() to the list returned by the getPackages() method
  1. Append the following lines to android/settings.gradle:
    include ':react-native-tus-client'
    project(':react-native-tus-client').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir,   '../node_modules/react-native-tus-client/android')
  2. Insert the following lines inside the dependencies block in android/app/build.gradle:
      compile project(':react-native-tus-client')


All you need to know to upload a file to a tus server is the local absolute path where the file is stored. If you know it, you can just invoke the library as described in the snippet at the end of this section. If you don't know where your file is stored, some other library like react-native-image-picker might help you.

Upload a file by its absolute path

import { Upload } from 'react-native-tus-client';

const absoluteFilePath = // absolute path to your file;
const upload = new Upload(absoluteFilePath, {
  endpoint: '', // use your tus server endpoint instead
  onError: error => console.log('error', error),
  onSuccess: () => {
    console.log('Upload completed! File url:', upload.url);
  onProgress: (uploaded, total) => console.log(
    `Progress: ${(uploaded/total*100)|0}%`)

Upload an image using react-native-image-picker

import ImagePicker from 'react-native-image-picker';
import { Upload } from 'react-native-tus-client';

new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
  ImagePicker.showImagePicker({ }, ({ uri, error, path }) => {
    return uri ? resolve(path || uri) : reject(error || null);
.then(file => {
  const upload = new Upload(file, {
    endpoint: '', // use your tus server endpoint instead
    onError: error => console.log('error', error),
    onSuccess: () => {
      console.log('Upload completed. File url:', upload.url);
    onProgress: (uploaded, total) => console.log(
      `Progress: ${(uploaded/total*100)|0}%`)
.catch(e => console.log('error', e));
