You are tasked to create a full-page bottom-sheet like experience to display some content within your React Native app. You wanted to use @gorhom/bottom-sheet for this use case, however there are some bugs and you need to swap @gorhom/bottom-sheet out for other libraries or find other techniques to achieve the same UI.

Today, we will explore how you can use react-navigation to achieve similar experience.


To achieve what we want of a full-page bottom-sheet, you can use react-navigation with some params configured such that the page itself becomes a modal.

This will be crucial to the user experience because it provides the user with the ability to swipe to dismiss the page.

Apart from being a modal, you also need to provide some form of "darkened" background that is translucent, so that it indicates to the user it is a "bottom-sheet". That is where the cardOverlay: Overlay comes into play. We will provide a component that is this "darkened" view.

Here is a snippet of how you should configure your Screen:

...TransitionPresets.ModalSlideFromBottomIOS, // provides bottom-up animation when launching page.
presentation: 'transparentModal',
cardOverlayEnabled: true,
headerTitleAlign: 'center',
headerShown: false,
cardOverlay: Overlay,

To let the user see the Overlay background, you have to have a transparent view within your page. Since we are doing a full-page bottom-sheet, we need set the height of this transparent view to be the safe area height.

Here is a snippet of the modal page:

const ModalScreen = () => {
const navigation = useNavigation<any>();

const onClose = () => {
navigation.canGoBack() && navigation.navigate('Home');
const top = useSafeAreaInsets().top;
return (
<View style={styles.root}>
<View style={[{ height: top }, styles.emptyContainer]} />
<View style={styles.contentContainer}>
<View style={styles.modalHeaderContainer}>
<Button title="close" onPress={onClose} />
<Text>Hello World</Text>
<Button title="save"></Button>

Here is how the full-page bottom-sheet looks like:

You are tasked to setup multiple repositories for a React Native project. Each repository essential serve as a business function, eg: User Login, User Address, Checkout, etc... Each business team should be able to work in an isolated manner and not be affected by another team.


Based on the given requirements, it essentially describes a mutli-repo approach to building react-native applications. This multi-repo approach is not uncommon in the industry and is frequently used to split business functions into individual teams. However, when you try to google multi-repo react-native there are barely any results that is suitable. Most of the industry today have shifted to using mono-repo because of its convient and easy to develop style.

There are many tools that are designed for mono-repo that can also be used for multi-repo because they are essentially about the same. Just how you place the folders and the node_modules.
