How to make an ARKit app in 5 minutes using React Native

Apple has made ARKit very easy to use, but it still requires quite a lot of efforts to properly set it up and run the first demo, especially for those who are not very familiar with 3D programming. What we are going to show you in this article is, with the help of React Native and react-native-arkit, you can skip the non-trivial setting-ups and will be able to write your AR app in just 5 minutes.

// index.ios.js
import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { AppRegistry, View } from 'react-native';
import { ARKit } from 'react-native-arkit';
export default class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <View style={{ flex: 1 }}>
        <ARKit
          style={{ flex: 1 }}
          debug // debug mode will show feature points detected and 3D axis
          planeDetection // turn on plane detection
          lightEstimation // turn on light estimation
        />
          <ARKit.Box
            pos={{ x: 0, y: 0, z: 0 }}
            shape={{ width: 0.1, height: 0.1, length: 0.1, chamfer: 0.01 }}
          />
        </ARKit>
      </View>
    );
  }
}
AppRegistry.registerComponent('MyFirstARKitApp', () => App);
