A React Native library for Applanga


1. Add Applanga to your Project

  • First, set up Applanga in your app as instructed on This includes setting up the Applanga-SDK and the Applanga Settings File, for both Android and iOS.

2. Add applanga-react-native

  • npm install applanga-react-native --save
  • react-native link applanga-react-native

iOS with CocoaPods support

react-native link applanga-react-native automatically inserts pod 'Applanga' to your Podfile. To be more correct, replace it with pod 'Applanga', '>= 2.0.107'.

  1. bundle install to install cocoapods-fix-react-native
  2. cd ios && pod install
  3. On top of the Podfile put the following line: plugin 'cocoapods-fix-react-native'
  4. pod install again

3. Usage

3.1 Import

import {Applanga} from 'applanga-react-native' If the previous line is not working, you should see an error message: "applanga-react-native module is not correctly linked".

3.2 Methods

Note: React Native bridge is asynchronous. So all Methods are asynchronous calls.

Applanga.getString("string_key", "default_message")

If string_key does not exists, default_message gets uploaded (see topic String Upload)


Fetches changes from the dashboard and updates the local Applanga Database. You have to rerender your UI to see latest changes. Be aware that due to our CDN-Caching it can take up to 15 minutes to be able to fetch new translations.

        "en": {
            "hello_world": "Hello World"
        "de" : {
            "hello_world": "Hallo Welt"

Applanga.localizeMap(map) returns the same map but with the actual Applanga localizations.

3.3 String Upload

Strings from Applanga.getString(String, String) and Strings which are located in the map of Applanga.localizeMap(map), will be uploaded if the app is in debug mode and fulfill one of the two points: They are non existent on the Applanga Dashboard or the target text is empty.

Debug mode for iOS

Open your ios/*.xcodeproj or ios/*.xcworkspace in XCode and run your app.

Debug mode for Android

Open Android Studio, File - Open. android/ directory. Run "Debug 'app'".
