How To Create A Login Page In React Native

How To Articles

Creating a login page in React Native is an essential step when developing mobile applications that require user authentication. In this article, I will guide you through the process of creating a login page using React Native, sharing my personal experiences and insights along the way.

Setting Up the Project

Before we dive into creating the login page, let’s make sure we have a React Native project set up. If you haven’t already, install React Native CLI by running the following command:

npm install -g react-native-cli

Once installed, create a new React Native project by running:

npx react-native init MyLoginApp

The above command will create a new folder named MyLoginApp which contains all the necessary files for our React Native project. Change into the project directory by running:

cd MyLoginApp

Designing the Login Page

Now that our project is set up, let’s focus on designing the login page. React Native provides a variety of UI components that make it easy to create sleek and intuitive user interfaces. For our login page, we will use the View, TextInput, and Button components.

First, open the App.js file in your code editor and replace the default code with the following:

import React, { useState } from 'react';
import { View, TextInput, Button } from 'react-native';

const App = () => {
const [username, setUsername] = useState('');
const [password, setPassword] = useState('');

const handleLogin = () => {
// Handle login logic here

return (

style={{ borderWidth: 1, padding: 10, width: 200, marginBottom: 10 }}
style={{ borderWidth: 1, padding: 10, width: 200, marginBottom: 10 }}
