:fire: The hottest CLI for React Native, boilerplates, plugins, generators, and more. :fire:

Note: if you're coming to Chain React, the React Native Conference in Portland July 10-11, we'll be handing out Ignite stickers! Be sure to say hi to an Infinite Red employee there.

Ignite CLI is here!

After months of work and sweat and tears, Ignite CLI has landed! We're incredibly proud of where Ignite CLI is and where it's headed.

Cliff notes version of the difference between Ignite 1 and Ignite CLI:

Ignite 1 was a (very nice!) React Native boilerplate. Ignite CLI is a generator for React Native with boilerplates, plugins, and more. Where before you had one choice -- Infinite Red's boilerplate -- now you can choose from many boilerplates and also add standalone plugins as you need them. It's much more modular and extensible than Ignite 1.

If you really liked Ignite 1 as it was, then not much has changed! You just run ignite new MyApp --max and everything feels pretty normal from there.

Quick Example

$ npm install -g ignite-cli
$ ignite new PizzaApp
$ cd PizzaApp
$ ignite add maps
$ ignite add vector-icons
$ ignite generate screen PizzaLocationList
$ ignite generate component PizzaLocation
$ ignite generate map StoreLocator
$ ignite add i18n
$ ignite remove i18n
$ ignite i love you

Why Ignite CLI?

  • Easily spin up a new React Native app with best practices built-in
  • No runtime! This is a developer tool only, not a library you have to depend on
  • An ever-expanding list of boilerplates and plugins
  • Powerful but well-defined behavior
  • Battle tested and used every day by the developers at Infinite Red

And you also get (by default) all of the sweet, sweet goodness of our default boilerplate, or choose one of many others.

:arrow_down: Install

First, make sure you're set up for React Native


Make sure you have Node 7.6+

While you are free to use whichever node version manager you like, we like using n

If you currently use nvm and would like to switch, follow these steps

You can check your version of node by running

node -v

then install Yarn for your system


All global installs below are using npm over yarn because of this bug on Windows.

$ npm install -g ignite-cli
$ ignite new MyNewAppName
