Integrating with React Native

You can use Apollo with React Native exactly as you would with React Web.

To introduce Apollo to your app, install React Apollo from npm and use them in your app as outlined in the sample code snippet below:

npm install @apollo/react-hooks apollo-client graphql -save
import React from 'react';
import {AppRegistry} from 'react-native';
import {ApolloClient } from 'apollo-client';
import {ApolloProvider } from '@apollo/react-hooks';

// Create the client as outlined in the setup guide
const client = new ApolloClient();

const App = () => (
  <ApolloProvider client={client}>
    <MyRootComponent />
AppRegistry.registerComponent('MyApplication', () => App);


There are some Apollo examples written in React Native that you may wish to refer to:

  1. The "Hello World" example used at dev.apollodata.com.
  2. A GitHub API Example built to work with GitHub's new GraphQL API.

Apollo Dev Tools

React Native Debugger supports the Apollo Client Devtools:

  1. Install React Native Debugger and open it.
  2. Enable "Debug JS Remotely" in your app.
  3. (Optional) If you do not see the Developer Tools panel or the Apollo tab is missing in them, toggle the Developer Tools by right clicking anywhere and selecting "Toggle Developer Tools".
