Expo Router

Overview

Expo Router brings file-based routing to React Native and web applications allowing you to easily create universal apps. Whenever a file is added to your src/app directory, a new path is automatically added to your navigation.

For the full documentation by Expo, head on over to the Introduction to Expo Router.

Ignite v9 is fully equipped to utilize expo-router after dependency installation and some directory structure updates! In this recipe, we'll convert the demo app's auth and tab navigators from react-navigation to use expo-router.

tip

This recipe is using Expo Router v3, which became available in Expo SDK 50. If you're using an older version of Expo, you can find more information about implementing it in your app in the Expo Router documentation.

Installation and Project Configuration

Bootstrap a new Ignite project:

npx ignite-cli@next new pizza-router --yes
cd pizza-router

Add the missing dependencies expo-router needs:

npx expo install expo-router expo-constants

Add expo-router to app.json plugins list if necessary:

"plugins": [
...
"expo-font",
"expo-router"
],

Change the entry point that expo-router expects in package.json:

"main": "node_modules/expo/AppEntry.js",
"main": "expo-router/entry",

expo-router has great TypeScript support, so let's enable that in app.json under experiments.

{
"expo": {
"experiments": {
"tsconfigPaths": true,
"typedRoutes": true
}
}
}

Reworking the Directory Structure

Expo Router requires route files to live in either app or src/app directories. But since our Ignite project is already using app, we'll need to rename it to src. We'll create src/app to contain all the file-base routing files from here on out, and models, components and other shared files will be located in the src directory now. We'll also remove App.tsx as this is no longer the entry point of the application.

rm App.tsx
mv app src
mkdir src/app

Let's update the TS alias and include paths over in tsconfig.json

{
"compilerOptions": {
// ...
"paths": {
"app/*": ["./app/*"],
"src/*": ["./src/*"],
// ...
},
}
"include": [
"index.js",
"App.tsx",
"app",
"types",
"plugins",
"app.config.ts",
".expo/types/**/*.ts",
"expo-env.d.ts"
],
"include": ["**/*.ts", "**/*.tsx"],
// ...
}

Fix Imports

We also need to fix up a few imports to use src/ instead of app/. Ignite's Demo App only contains a few files we need to update, but an existing app could contain more.

package.json

"format": "prettier --write \"app/**/*.{js,jsx,json,md,ts,tsx}\"",
"lint": "eslint App.tsx app test --fix --ext .js,.ts,.tsx && npm run format",
"format": "prettier --write \"src/**/*.{js,jsx,json,md,ts,tsx}\"",
"lint": "eslint src test --fix --ext .js,.ts,.tsx && npm run format",

src/devtools/ReactotronConfig.ts

import { clear } from "app/utils/storage";
import { goBack, resetRoot, navigate } from "app/navigators/navigationUtilities";
import { clear } from "src/utils/storage";
import { goBack, resetRoot, navigate } from "src/navigators/navigationUtilities";

Creating File-based Routes

src/app/_layout.tsx

We're now ready to start setting up navigation for the app! If you're familiar with Ignite, app.tsx is where our root navigator lives, however, with expo-router, we'll use src/app/_layout.tsx for that. We'll add the providers here that any route would need within the app.

// app/_layout.tsx
import React from "react";
import { Slot, SplashScreen } from "expo-router";
import { useInitialRootStore } from "src/models";

SplashScreen.preventAutoHideAsync();

if (__DEV__) {
// Load Reactotron configuration in development. We don't want to
// include this in our production bundle, so we are using `if (__DEV__)`
// to only execute this in development.
require("src/devtools/ReactotronConfig.ts");
}

export { ErrorBoundary } from "src/components/ErrorBoundary/ErrorBoundary";

export default function Root() {
// Wait for stores to load and render our layout inside of it so we have access
// to auth info etc
const { rehydrated } = useInitialRootStore();
if (!rehydrated) {
return null;
}

return <Slot />;
}

Move ErrorBoundary out of screens/ErrorScreen and into src/components/ErrorBoundary:

mkdir src/components/ErrorBoundary
mv src/screens/ErrorScreen/* src/components/ErrorBoundary

For starters, this sets up our error boundary for the app and handles waiting on our stores to rehydrate. <Slot /> comes from expo-router, you can think of it like the children prop in React. This component can be wrapped with others to help create a layout.

Next, we'll convert the conditional part of authentication from react-navigation to expo-router, deciding on whether or not to display the login form or get to the welcome screen experience.

src/app/(app)/_layout.tsx

Create another _layout.tsx but this time inside of a new directory, src/app/(app). This route wrapped in parentheses is called a Group. Groups can be used to add layouts and/or help organize sections of the app without adding additional segments to the URL. Remember, each directory is a route in this new mental model of file-based routing - but sometimes we don't want that, that's when you'll call upon groups.

In this layout is where we'll determine if the user is authenticated by checking our MST store. We'll also wait here while assets are loaded and then hide the splash screen when finished.

import React from "react";
import { Redirect, SplashScreen, Stack } from "expo-router";
import { observer } from "mobx-react-lite";
import { useStores } from "src/models";
import { useFonts } from "expo-font";
import { customFontsToLoad } from "src/theme";

export default observer(function Layout() {
const {
authenticationStore: { isAuthenticated },
} = useStores();

const [fontsLoaded, fontError] = useFonts(customFontsToLoad);

React.useEffect(() => {
if (fontsLoaded || fontError) {
// Hide the splash screen after the fonts have loaded and the UI is ready.
SplashScreen.hideAsync();
}
}, [fontsLoaded, fontError]);

if (!fontsLoaded && !fontError) {
return null;
}

if (!isAuthenticated) {
return <Redirect href="/log-in" />;
}

return <Stack screenOptions={{ headerShown: false }} />;
});

As you can see, if the user is not authenticated we redirect them to the /log-in route, otherwise we'll render a stack navigator. TypeScript is probably telling us that route doesn't exist yet, so let's fix that.

src/app/log-in.tsx

To redirect the user to the login form, create src/app/log-in.tsx. We'll copy over the contents from the original boilerplate src/screens/LoginScreen.tsx to help the UI layout of this page.

src/app/log-in.tsx
import { router } from "expo-router";
import { observer } from "mobx-react-lite";
import React, { ComponentType, useEffect, useMemo, useRef, useState } from "react";
import { TextInput, TextStyle, ViewStyle } from "react-native";
import { Button, Icon, Screen, Text, TextField, TextFieldAccessoryProps } from "src/components";
import { useStores } from "src/models";
import { colors, spacing } from "src/theme";

export default observer(function Login(_props) {
const authPasswordInput = useRef<TextInput>(null);

const [authPassword, setAuthPassword] = useState("");
const [isAuthPasswordHidden, setIsAuthPasswordHidden] = useState(true);
const [isSubmitted, setIsSubmitted] = useState(false);
const [attemptsCount, setAttemptsCount] = useState(0);
const {
authenticationStore: { authEmail, setAuthEmail, setAuthToken, validationError },
} = useStores();

useEffect(() => {
// Here is where you could fetch credentials from keychain or storage
// and pre-fill the form fields.
setAuthEmail("ignite@infinite.red");
setAuthPassword("ign1teIsAwes0m3");

// Return a "cleanup" function that React will run when the component unmounts
return () => {
setAuthPassword("");
setAuthEmail("");
};
}, []);

const error = isSubmitted ? validationError : "";

function login() {
setIsSubmitted(true);
setAttemptsCount(attemptsCount + 1);

if (validationError) return;

// Make a request to your server to get an authentication token.
// If successful, reset the fields and set the token.
setIsSubmitted(false);
setAuthPassword("");
setAuthEmail("");

// We'll mock this with a fake token.
setAuthToken(String(Date.now()));

// navigate to the main screen
router.replace("/");
}

const PasswordRightAccessory: ComponentType<TextFieldAccessoryProps> = useMemo(
() =>
function PasswordRightAccessory(props: TextFieldAccessoryProps) {
return (
<Icon
icon={isAuthPasswordHidden ? "view" : "hidden"}
color={colors.palette.neutral800}
containerStyle={props.style}
size={20}
onPress={() => setIsAuthPasswordHidden(!isAuthPasswordHidden)}
/>
);
},
[isAuthPasswordHidden]
);

return (
<Screen preset="auto" contentContainerStyle={$screenContentContainer} safeAreaEdges={["top", "bottom"]}>
<Text testID="login-heading" tx="loginScreen.signIn" preset="heading" style={$signIn} />
<Text tx="loginScreen.enterDetails" preset="subheading" style={$enterDetails} />
{attemptsCount > 2 && <Text tx="loginScreen.hint" size="sm" weight="light" style={$hint} />}

<TextField

onChangeText={setAuthEmail}
containerStyle={$textField}

/>

<TextField

onSubmitEditing={login}
RightAccessory={PasswordRightAccessory}
/>

<Button testID="login-button" tx="loginScreen.tapToSignIn" style={$tapButton} preset="reversed" onPress={login} />
</Screen>
);
});

const $screenContentContainer: ViewStyle = {
paddingVertical: spacing.xxl,
paddingHorizontal: spacing.lg,
};

const $signIn: TextStyle = {
marginBottom: spacing.sm,
};

const $enterDetails: TextStyle = {
marginBottom: spacing.lg,
};

const $hint: TextStyle = {
color: colors.tint,
marginBottom: spacing.md,
};

const $textField: ViewStyle = {
marginBottom: spacing.lg,
};

const $tapButton: ViewStyle = {
marginTop: spacing.xs,
};

If you're familiar with the Ignite boilerplate, this is the same authentication screen you are used to - the only difference here is some of the imports now from from src/* rather than the relative paths. So keep that in mind if you're upgrading an existing application.

src/app/(app)/index.tsx

If the user is successfully authenticated, we'll show them the welcome screen. Can you guess what the route will be by looking at the directory structure?

Just the root route! Think about it in terms of web URLs, if arriving at http://localhost:8081/ (in this case of local development), we'd expect to see the welcome screen. However, if we're not authenticated, we'll be redirected to /log-in to ask the user to log in.

This JSX will be the same exact contents from WelcomeScreen.tsx in the original Ignite boilerplate with the exception of some import paths (using the TS aliases) and a simple update to goNext.

Since we'll no longer use the navigation prop, we utilize expo-router's Imperative navigation to navigate to the component demo Showroom next. We're using .replace since we don't need to get back to this route. You can read more about Navigating between pages at Expo's documentation.

src/app/(app)/index.tsx
import { router } from "expo-router";
import { observer } from "mobx-react-lite";
import React from "react";
import { Image, ImageStyle, TextStyle, View, ViewStyle } from "react-native";

const welcomeLogo = require("assets/images/logo.png");
const welcomeFace = require("assets/images/welcome-face.png");

export default observer(function WelcomeScreen() {
const {
authenticationStore: { logout },
} = useStores();

function goNext() {
router.replace("/showroom");
}

useHeader(
{
rightTx: "common.logOut",
onRightPress: logout,
},
[logout]
);

const $bottomContainerInsets = useSafeAreaInsetsStyle(["bottom"]);

return (
<View style={$container}>
<View style={$topContainer}>
<Image style={$welcomeLogo} source={welcomeLogo} resizeMode="contain" />
<Text testID="welcome-heading" style={$welcomeHeading} tx="welcomeScreen.readyForLaunch" preset="heading" />
<Text tx="welcomeScreen.exciting" preset="subheading" />
<Image style={$welcomeFace} source={welcomeFace} resizeMode="contain" />
</View>

<View style={[$bottomContainer, $bottomContainerInsets]}>
<Text tx="welcomeScreen.postscript" size="md" />
<Button testID="next-screen-button" preset="reversed" tx="welcomeScreen.letsGo" onPress={goNext} />
</View>
</View>
);
});

const $container: ViewStyle = {
flex: 1,
backgroundColor: colors.background,
};

const $topContainer: ViewStyle = {
flexShrink: 1,
flexGrow: 1,
flexBasis: "57%",
justifyContent: "center",

};

const $bottomContainer: ViewStyle = {
flexShrink: 1,

flexBasis: "43%",
backgroundColor: colors.palette.neutral100,
borderTopLeftRadius: 16,
borderTopRightRadius: 16,
paddingHorizontal: spacing.lg,
justifyContent: "space-around",
};
const $welcomeLogo: ImageStyle = {
height: 88,
width: "100%",
marginBottom: spacing.xxl,
};

const $welcomeFace: ImageStyle = {
height: 169,
width: 269,
position: "absolute",
bottom: -47,
right: -80,
transform: [{ scaleX: isRTL ? -1 : 1 }],
};

const $welcomeHeading: TextStyle = {
marginBottom: spacing.md,
};

Checkpoint

Build and run your app using yarn run ios. You should see the log-in route, be able to authenticate, and navigate to the main "welcome" screen. But we aren't done yet - we still need to add the remaining screens in a Tab Navigator.

Adding Tab Navigation

First, we'll create another route group to help contain where these routes live and set the layout for the tabs.

Create src/app/(app)/(tabs)/_layout.tsx and we'll convert Ignite's previous app/navigators/DemoNavigator.tsx to live here.

src/app/(app)/(tabs)/_layout.tsx
import React from "react";
import { Tabs } from "expo-router/tabs";
import { observer } from "mobx-react-lite";
import { Icon } from "src/components";
import { translate } from "src/i18n";
import { colors, spacing, typography } from "src/theme";
import { TextStyle, ViewStyle } from "react-native";
import { useSafeAreaInsets } from "react-native-safe-area-context";

export default observer(function Layout() {
const { bottom } = useSafeAreaInsets();

return (
<Tabs
screenOptions={{
headerShown: false,
tabBarHideOnKeyboard: true,
tabBarStyle: [$tabBar, { height: bottom + 70 }],
tabBarActiveTintColor: colors.text,
tabBarInactiveTintColor: colors.text,
tabBarLabelStyle: $tabBarLabel,
tabBarItemStyle: $tabBarItem,
}}
>
<Tabs.Screen
name="showroom"
options={{
href: "/showroom",
headerShown: false,
tabBarLabel: translate("demoNavigator.componentsTab"),
tabBarIcon: ({ focused }) => <Icon icon="components" color={focused ? colors.tint : undefined} size={30} />,
}}
/>
<Tabs.Screen
name="community"
options={{
href: "/community",
headerShown: false,
tabBarLabel: translate("demoNavigator.communityTab"),
tabBarIcon: ({ focused }) => <Icon icon="community" color={focused ? colors.tint : undefined} size={30} />,
}}
/>
<Tabs.Screen
name="podcasts"
options={{
href: "/podcasts",
headerShown: false,
tabBarAccessibilityLabel: translate("demoNavigator.podcastListTab"),
tabBarLabel: translate("demoNavigator.podcastListTab"),
tabBarIcon: ({ focused }) => <Icon icon="podcast" color={focused ? colors.tint : undefined} size={30} />,
}}
/>
<Tabs.Screen
name="debug"
options={{
href: "/debug",
headerShown: false,
tabBarLabel: translate("demoNavigator.debugTab"),
tabBarIcon: ({ focused }) => <Icon icon="debug" color={focused ? colors.tint : undefined} size={30} />,
}}
/>
</Tabs>
);
});

const $tabBar: ViewStyle = {
backgroundColor: colors.background,
borderTopColor: colors.transparent,
};

const $tabBarItem: ViewStyle = {
paddingTop: spacing.md,
};

const $tabBarLabel: TextStyle = {
fontSize: 12,
fontFamily: typography.primary.medium,
lineHeight: 16,
flex: 1,
};

Creating Tab Screens

Now to create screens for each tabs, you simply just add [screen].tsx under the (tabs) group. Let's bring over the 3 simpler screens first - Community, Podcasts and Debug. Those will mostly be copy 🍝 aside from changing the exports to default and import from our TS paths.

src/app/(app)/(tabs)/community.tsx
import React from "react";
import { Image, ImageStyle, TextStyle, View, ViewStyle } from "react-native";
import { ListItem, Screen, Text } from "src/components";
import { spacing } from "src/theme";

import { isRTL } from "src/i18n";

const chainReactLogo = require("assets/images/demo/cr-logo.png");
const reactNativeLiveLogo = require("assets/images/demo/rnl-logo.png");
const reactNativeRadioLogo = require("assets/images/demo/rnr-logo.png");
const reactNativeNewsletterLogo = require("assets/images/demo/rnn-logo.png");

export default function DemoCommunityScreen() {
return (
<Screen preset="scroll" contentContainerStyle={$container} safeAreaEdges={["top"]}>

These will all be navigable by routing to /community, /podcasts or /debug. Next we'll cover the Showroom which is a bit more involved, since we have to add some supporting components that only apply to that route.

Showroom Screen

The Showroom screen has some supporting components it needs that only applies to that route. Ignite used to colocate these next to the screen file itself, in the src/app/screens/DemoShowroomScreen directory. However, expo-router wants to keep the app directory strictly for app routes.

To adhere to this, we'll move the supporting components to src/components/Showroom and import them from their in our src/app/(app)/(tabs)/showroom.tsx.

mv src/screens/DemoShowroomScreen src/components/Showroom
rm src/components/Showroom/DemoShowroomScreen.tsx

Note: There is a type that gets removed by the above command. Add the following to the top of src/components/Showroom/demos/index.ts

import { ReactElement } from "react";

export interface Demo {
name: string;
description: string;
data: ReactElement[];
}

You'll need to update the imports in the src/components/Showroom/demos/Demo*.ts files. A project-wide search and replace should do the trick:

  • Project-wide search for from "../DemoShowroomScreen"
  • Replace with from "."

We've deleted the screen file because we'll make a few expo-router specific changes to it over in the app directory. One improvement we can make to the Showroom screen is that we can reduce the platform specific code with regards to the renderItem of SectionList.

Before, we had an implementation for both web and mobile to help with some specific web routing for deep links:

const WebListItem: FC<DemoListItem> = ({ item, sectionIndex }) => {
const sectionSlug = item.name.toLowerCase();

return (
<View>
<Link to={`/showroom/${sectionSlug}`} style={$menuContainer}>
<Text preset="bold">{item.name}</Text>
</Link>
{item.useCases.map((u) => {
const itemSlug = slugify(u);

return (
<Link key={`section${sectionIndex}-${u}`} to={`/showroom/${sectionSlug}/${itemSlug}`}>
<Text>{u}</Text>
</Link>
);
})}
</View>
);
};

const NativeListItem: FC<DemoListItem> = ({ item, sectionIndex, handleScroll }) => (
<View>
<Text onPress={() => handleScroll?.(sectionIndex)} preset="bold" style={$menuContainer}>
{item.name}
</Text>
{item.useCases.map((u, index) => (
<ListItem
key={`section${sectionIndex}-${u}`}
onPress={() => handleScroll?.(sectionIndex, index + 1)}
text={u}
rightIcon={isRTL ? "caretLeft" : "caretRight"}
/>
))}
</View>
);

const ShowroomListItem = Platform.select({
web: WebListItem,
default: NativeListItem,
});

However, we don't have to worry about this anymore. We can implement this as follows:

const ShowroomListItem: FC<DemoListItem> = ({ item, sectionIndex }) => {
const sectionSlug = item.name.toLowerCase();

return (
<View>
<Link href={{ pathname: "/showroom", params: { sectionSlug } }}>
<Text preset="bold">{item.name}</Text>
</Link>
{item.useCases.map((u) => {
const itemSlug = slugify(u);
return (
<Link
key={`section${sectionIndex}-${u}`}
href={{ pathname: "/showroom", params: { sectionSlug, itemSlug } }}
asChild
>
<ListItem text={u} rightIcon={isRTL ? "caretLeft" : "caretRight"} />
</Link>
);
})}
</View>
);
};

Note the Link wrapper provided by expo-router. We link to the /showroom route and provide the extra search params for a section or specific component we want to navigate to. We can then extract (and type) these params using useLocalSearchParams

The snippet below contains the entire file for reference:

src/app/(app)/(tabs)/showroom.tsx
import React, { FC, useEffect, useRef, useState } from "react";
import { Image, ImageStyle, SectionList, TextStyle, View, ViewStyle } from "react-native";

}

const slugify = (str: string) =>
str

.replace(/[^\w\s-]/g, "")

};

export default function DemoShowroomScreen() {
const [open, setOpen] = useState(false);
const timeout = useRef<ReturnType<typeof setTimeout>>();
const listRef = useRef<SectionList>(null);
const menuRef = useRef<ListViewRef<DemoListItem["item"]>>(null);

const params = useLocalSearchParams<{
sectionSlug?: string;
itemSlug?: string;
}>();

// handle scroll when section/item params change
React.useEffect(() => {
if (Object.keys(params).length > 0) {
const demoValues = Object.values(Demos);
const findSectionIndex = demoValues.findIndex((x) => x.name.toLowerCase() === params.sectionSlug);
let findItemIndex = 0;
if (params.itemSlug) {
try {
findItemIndex =
demoValues[findSectionIndex].data.findIndex((u) => slugify(u.props.name) === params.itemSlug) + 1;

}
handleScroll(findSectionIndex, findItemIndex);
}

const $demoUseCasesSpacer: ViewStyle = {

If you head on over to the web app at http://localhost:8081/showroom?itemSlug=variants&sectionSlug=toggle, you'll see the Showroom screen will open and scroll down to the appropriate section.

We can emulate deep links in Expo Go with the command:

npx uri-scheme open exp://localhost:8081/--/showroom --ios

Observe the simulator opens the mobile app and navigates to the Showroom screen.

We get that universal linking for free with expo-router!

Code Cleanup

Now that we have the boilerplate up and running again, let's clean some of the screen and navigation files that are no longer needed.

rm src/app.tsx
rm -rf src/screens
rm -rf src/navigators

In doing so, we'll need to fix some Reactotron code for custom commands. We'll drop the resetNavigation one (logging out is really the same thing) and update the navigateTo and goBack. Open up src/devtools/ReactotronConfig.ts to edit these.

import { goBack, resetRoot, navigate } from "src/navigators/navigationUtilities";
import { router } from "expo-router";
// ...
reactotron.onCustomCommand({
title: "Reset Navigation State",
description: "Resets the navigation state",
command: "resetNavigation",
handler: () => {
Reactotron.log("resetting navigation state");
resetRoot({ index: 0, routes: [] });
},
});

reactotron.onCustomCommand<[{ name: "route"; type: ArgType.String }]>({
command: "navigateTo",
handler: (args) => {
const { route } = args ?? {};
if (route) {
Reactotron.log(`Navigating to: ${route}`);
navigate(route as any); // this should be tied to the navigator, but since this is for debugging, we can navigate to illegal routes
// @ts-ignore - bypass Expo Router Typed Routes
router.push(route);
} else {
Reactotron.log("Could not navigate. No route provided.");
}
},
title: "Navigate To Screen",
description: "Navigates to a screen by name.",
args: [{ name: "route", type: ArgType.String }],
});

reactotron.onCustomCommand({
title: "Go Back",
description: "Goes back",
command: "goBack",
handler: () => {
Reactotron.log("Going back");
goBack();
router.back();
},
});

When navigating to the showroom, you may notice an error in the console:

ERROR  Warning: Function components cannot be given refs. Attempts to access this ref will fail. Did you mean to use React.forwardRef()?

This is because the expo-router's <Link> component passes a ref to it's children. To address this we can update our ListItem.tsx to correctly handle the ref passed to it.

src/components/ListItem.tsx
/**
* A styled row component that can be used in FlatList, SectionList, or by itself.
* @see [Documentation and Examples]{@link https://docs.infinite.red/ignite-cli/boilerplate/components/ListItem/}
* @param {ListItemProps} props - The props for the `ListItem` component.
* @returns {JSX.Element} The rendered `ListItem` component.
*/
export function ListItem(props: ListItemProps) {
export const ListItem = React.forwardRef<View, ListItemProps>(function ListItem(
props: ListItemProps,
ref,
) {
const {
bottomSeparator,
children,
height = 56,
LeftComponent,
leftIcon,
leftIconColor,
RightComponent,
rightIcon,
rightIconColor,
style,
text,
TextProps,
topSeparator,
tx,
txOptions,
textStyle: $textStyleOverride,
containerStyle: $containerStyleOverride,
...TouchableOpacityProps
} = props

const $textStyles = [$textStyle, $textStyleOverride, TextProps?.style]

const $containerStyles = [
topSeparator && $separatorTop,
bottomSeparator && $separatorBottom,
$containerStyleOverride,
]

const $touchableStyles = [$touchableStyle, { minHeight: height }, style]

return (
<View style={$containerStyles}>

<TouchableOpacity {...TouchableOpacityProps} style={$touchableStyles}>
<ListItemAction

Summary

There you have it, a culinary masterpiece of Ignite and Expo Router, shipped in one pizza box. What we achieved here:

  • Simplified navigation code
  • Typed routing
  • Examples of many aspects of expo-router, such as authentication, tab navigation, search params
  • Deep linking that Just WorksTM on both web and mobile
  • Reduced Platform specific code
