You can pass properties down to the React Native app by providing a custom implementation of ReactActivityDelegate in your main activity. This implementation should override getLaunchOptions to return a Bundle with the desired properties.

I always like to show you code first before dive deep the implementation.


The guide says how to set app properties via a react root view, but it didn't mention how you can get it.


I fulfilled that part in my custom react activity delegate snippets:


ReactRootView provides a read-write property appProperties. After appProperties is set, the React Native app is re-rendered with new properties. The update is only performed when the new updated properties differ from the previous ones.

I used it in my custom and update the app properties in the Ads status callback.

React Native App.tsx
