Mobile App Environment Setup
The Rocket.Chat mobile app is developed with React Native, helping us create both Android and iOS applications from a single codebase.
Setting up the development environment requires you to download and install multiple dependencies. You will need an active internet connection throughout the process.
You are required to have the following installed already on your machine before starting.
Clone repository and install dependencies:
Run the app:
At this point, the app should be running on the simulator or on your device!
Or if you can't help coding, triaging issues is a great way of helping.
As soon as your changes are ready, you can open a Pull Request.
The title of your PR should be descriptive, including either [NEW], [IMPROVEMENT], or [FIX] at the beginning, e.g. [FIX] App crashing on startup.
You may share working results prior to finishing, please include [WIP] in the title. This way anyone can look at your code: you can ask for help within the PR if you don't know how to solve a problem.
Your PR is automatically inspected by various tools, check their response, and try to improve your code accordingly. Requests that fail to build or have the wrong coding style won't be merged.
