Using MobX with decorators in React Native

Using MobX with decorators in React Native

The following instructions should work with React Native v0.32:

  1. Install mobx libraries.

    npm install mobx --save
    npm install mobx-react --save
  2. Install babel plugins to enable decorators.

    npm install babel-preset-react-native --save-dev
    npm install babel-plugin-transform-decorators-legacy --save-dev
  3. Create a .babelrc file.

     "presets": ["react-native"],
     "plugins": ["transform-decorators-legacy"]
  4. Done! Now you can write components like:

    import React, { Component } from 'react'
    import { TextInput } from 'react-native'
    import { action } from 'mobx'
    import { inject, observer } from 'mobx-react/native'
    @inject('store') @observer
    export default class CommentBox extends Component {
      render() {
        return <TextInput value={} onChangeText={this.handleChange} />
      handleChange = value => = value
