Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.


Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

React Native WebView component for iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows




React Native WebView

star this repo PRs Welcome NPM Version Npm Downloads

React Native WebView is a community-maintained WebView component for React Native. It is intended to be a replacement for the built-in WebView (which was removed from core).


Many thanks to these companies for providing us with time to work on open source.
Please note that maintainers spend a lot of free time working on this too so feel free to sponsor them, it really makes a difference.

Windows and macOS are managed by Microsoft, notably:

Shout-out to Jamon Holmgren from Infinite Red for helping a lot with the repo when he had more available time.


Maintaining WebView is very complex because it is often used for many different use cases (rendering SVGs, PDFs, login flows, and much more). We also support many platforms and both architectures of react-native.

Since WebView was extracted from the React Native core, nearly 500 pull requests have been merged.
Considering that we have limited time, issues will mostly serve as a discussion place for the community, while we will prioritize reviewing and merging pull requests.

Platform compatibility

This project is compatible with iOS, Android, Windows and macOS.
This project supports both the old (paper) and the new architecture (fabric).
This project is compatible with expo.

Getting Started

Read our Getting Started Guide. If any step seems unclear, please create a pull request.


This project follows semantic versioning. We do not hesitate to release breaking changes but they will be in a major version.


Import the WebView component from react-native-webview and use it like so:

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { StyleSheet, Text, View } from 'react-native';
import { WebView } from 'react-native-webview';

// ...
const MyWebComponent = () => {
  return <WebView source={{ uri: '' }} style={{ flex: 1 }} />;

Common issues

  • If you're getting Invariant Violation: Native component for "RNCWebView does not exist" it likely means you forgot to run react-native link or there was some error with the linking process
  • If you encounter a build error during the task :app:mergeDexRelease, you need to enable multidex support in android/app/build.gradle as discussed in this issue
