React Native

The HyperDX React Native SDK allows you to instrument your React Native application to send events to HyperDX. This allows you to see mobile network requests and exceptions alongside backend events in a single timeline.

This Guide Integrates:

✅ XHR/Fetch Requests

Getting Started

Install via NPM

Use the following command to install the HyperDX React Native package (opens in a new tab).

npm install @hyperdx/otel-react-native

Initialize HyperDX

Initialize the library as early in your app lifecycle as possible:

import { HyperDXRum } from '@hyperdx/otel-react-native';
  service: 'my-rn-app',
  apiKey: '<YOUR_API_KEY_HERE>',
  tracePropagationTargets: [/api.myapp.domain/i], // Set to link traces from frontend to backend requests

(Optional) Attach User Information or Metadata

Attaching user information will allow you to search/filter sessions and events in HyperDX. This can be called at any point during the client session. The current client session and all events sent after the call will be associated with the user information.

userEmail, userName, and teamName will populate the sessions UI with the corresponding values, but can be omitted. Any other additional values can be specified and used to search for events.

  // Other custom properties...

Instrument lower versions

To instrument applications running on React Native versions lower than 0.68, edit your metro.config.js file to force metro to use browser specific packages. For example:

const defaultResolver = require('metro-resolver');
module.exports = {
  resolver: {
    resolveRequest: (context, realModuleName, platform, moduleName) => {
      const resolved = defaultResolver.resolve(
          resolveRequest: null,
      if (
        resolved.type === 'sourceFile' &&
      ) {
        resolved.filePath = resolved.filePath.replace(
        return resolved;
      return resolved;
  transformer: {
    getTransformOptions: async () => ({
      transform: {
        experimentalImportSupport: false,
        inlineRequires: true,

View navigation

react-navigation (opens in a new tab) version 5 and 6 are supported.

The following example shows how to instrument navigation:

import { startNavigationTracking } from '@hyperdx/otel-react-native';
export default function App() {
  const navigationRef = useNavigationContainerRef();
  return (
      onReady={() => {
