First of all, this is not my brilliant effort to get react-native working on Windows, it is the collation of work by others, particularly @mqli and @Bernd Wessels. I've just summarised what worked for me.

If you would prefer to read what I've plagerised, head over to mqli's great gist


  • The below is tested with react-native-cli 0.1.5, react-native 0.12.0 on Windows 10, node 4.1.1, and Android (physical Nexus 6 and AVD with API v22)
  • I hope this will all be redundant in a few weeks. Please comment on stuff that is now fixed and I will update this to keep it relevant.
  • Sprinkle a bit of YMMV around

Keep this github issue handy, it’s the bucket for all Windows/Linux related tricks to get RN working.
