Manual Configuration

If you can’t (or prefer not to) run the linking step, you can use the instructions below to configure your application.

iOS

Linking the Native Library

You must link the native Sentry project with your project. This can be done by following the Linking Libraries steps described in React Native documentation.

Link to this library: node_modules/@sentry/react-native/ios/RNSentry.xcodeproj.

Upload Debug Symbols

Debug symbols provide information that Sentry displays on the Issue Details page to help you triage an issue. With our React Native SDK, debug symbols are used to symbolicate Native layer (iOS/Android) events. When you use Xcode, you can hook directly into the build process to upload debug symbols. When linking, one build phase script is changed and two more are added.

Bundle React Native Code and Images

We modify the React Native build phase (“Bundle React Native code and images”) slightly from this:

Copied
export NODE_BINARY=node
../node_modules/react-native/packager/react-native-xcode.sh

To this:

Copied
export NODE_BINARY=node
export EXTRA_PACKAGER_ARGS="--sourcemap-output $DERIVED_FILE_DIR/main.jsbundle.map"
export SENTRY_PROPERTIES=../sentry.properties

# If you are using RN 0.46+
../node_modules/@sentry/cli/bin/sentry-cli react-native xcode \
  ../node_modules/react-native/scripts/react-native-xcode.sh

# For RN < 0.46
../node_modules/@sentry/cli/bin/sentry-cli react-native xcode \
  ../node_modules/react-native/packager/react-native-xcode.sh

Additionally, we add a build script named “Upload Debug Symbols to Sentry” to upload debug symbols to Sentry.

Upload Debug Symbols to Sentry

To upload source maps and symbols to Sentry, create a new Run Script build phase using the following script:

Copied
export SENTRY_PROPERTIES=../sentry.properties

../node_modules/@sentry/cli/bin/sentry-cli upload-dif "$DWARF_DSYM_FOLDER_PATH"

For bitcode enabled builds via iTunes Connect, additional steps are required. Follow the instructions in Sentry's bitcode documentation to set up uploads of symbols for all build variants.

By default, uploading of debug simulator builds is disabled for speed reasons. If you want to generate debug symbols for debug builds, you can pass --allow-fetch as a parameter to react-native-xcode in the above mentioned build phase.

Using node with nvm or Volta

If you are using nvm or notion, Xcode has trouble locating the default node binary, which can look similar to this example:

Copied
dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/opt/icu4c/lib/libicui18n.62.dylib
  Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/node
  Reason: image not found

In this case, type ln -s $(which node) /usr/local/bin/node, which tells your env to use your node binary.

Android

For Android, we hook into Gradle for the source map build process. When you run react-native link or yarn sentry-wizard -i reactNative -p ios android (if react-native > 0.60), the Gradle files are automatically updated.

Enable Gradle Integration

We enable the Gradle integration in your android/app/build.gradle file by adding the following line after the react.gradle line:

android/app/build.gradle
Copied
apply from: "../../node_modules/@sentry/react-native/sentry.gradle"

Enable Logging for sentry-cli

You can also enable logging for sentry-cli by adding this config before the above apply from: line:

android/app/build.gradle
Copied
project.ext.sentryCli = [
    logLevel: "debug"
]

Fetch sentry.properties

We also support fetching different sentry.properties files for different flavors. For that, you need to add:

android/app/build.gradle
Copied
project.ext.sentryCli = [
    logLevel: "debug",
    flavorAware: true
]

The corresponding flavor files should also be placed within the specific build type folder where you intend to use them. For example, the "Android release" flavor would be react-native/android/sentry-release.properties.

We recommend leaving logLevel: "debug" since we look for specific sentry.properties files depending on your flavor's name.

Include the project by adding it to your dependency list in android/app/build.gradle:

android/app/build.gradle
Copied
dependencies {
    // ... other dependencies listed here //
    implementation project(':@sentry_react-native')
}

MainApplication.java for React Native < 0.60

For React Native versions < 0.60, make sure your MainApplication.java is similar to:

Copied
import io.sentry.react.RNSentryPackage;

public class MainApplication extends Application implements ReactApplication {

  @Override
  protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
    return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
         new MainReactPackage(),
         new RNSentryPackage()
    );
  }
}

Add the following to your settings.gradle file:

android/settings.gradle
Copied
include ':@sentry_react-native'
project(':@sentry_react-native').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/@sentry/react-native/android')
