React Navigation

When using Async chunks, you can easily integrate React components which are part of async chunks, by created a wrapper component with React.Suspense and passing it as a component prop to a Screen, e.g:

import * as React from 'react';
import { Text } from 'react-native';
import { useRoute } from '@react-navigation/native';
import { createNativeStackNavigator } from '@react-navigation/native-stack';

const StudentSide = React.lazy(
() => import(/* webpackChunkName: "student" */ './StudentSide.js')
);

const TeacherSide = React.lazy(
() => import(/* webpackChunkName: "teacher" */ './TeacherSide.js')
);

const StudentSideScreen = () => {
const { params: { user } } = useRoute();
return (
<React.Suspense fallback={<Text>Loading...</Text>}>
<StudentSide user={user} />
</React.Suspense>
);
};

const TeacherSideScreen = () => {
const { params: { user } } = useRoute();
return (
<React.Suspense fallback={<Text>Loading...</Text>}>
<TeacherSide user={user} />
</React.Suspense>
);
};

const Stack = createNativeStackNavigator();

export function Home() {
return (
<Stack.Navigator>
<Stack.Screen name="StudentScreen" component={StudentSizeScreen} />
<Stack.Screen name="TeacherScreen" component={TeacherSideScreen} />
</Stack.Navigator>
)
}

React context is passed to the chunks as well, so you can use useNavigation, useRoute and other hooks inside chunks (e.g: inside StudentSide or TeacherSide components) to access data or interact with React Navigation.

caution

For Scripts approach, there's no easy way to integrate React Navigation. It should be possible to hack your way around it, but in general, we don't recommend scripts approach unless you know what you're doing.

info

Module Federation approach is not officially supported yet, but it should be fairly straightforward to integrate React Navigation with it. For a reference how it could be done, check out this code: https://github.com/zamotany/module-federation-repack/blob/main/host/Root.js#L51-L86
