React Native Header Scroll View Save

A React Native component that creates a Apple-esque large header that fades in a smaller header as you scroll.

Project README


? DEPRECATED and unmaintained ?

This library is an emulation of native iOS large headers. Now you can access the real thing with react-native-screens/native-stack. This library is a drop-in replacement for React Navigation's stack view, and includes direct access to native large headers/transitions etc. It has awesome performance.

You can see it in action in this app: github, download on the app stores.

A React Native component that mimicks Apple's large header that fades in a smaller header as you scroll, and slightly expands as you scroll up. You can see this effect in Apple's Messages, Books, etc.

# yarn
yarn add react-native-header-scroll-view

# npm
npm install react-native-header-scroll-view --save

Then, import with:

import HeaderScrollView from 'react-native-header-scroll-view';


Example usage:

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { Text } from 'react-native';
import HeaderScrollView from 'react-native-header-scroll-view';

class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <HeaderScrollView title="For You">

To use this component with React Navigation, you'd want to disable the built-in header. There are 2 ways to disable the header in React Navigation:

Disable the default header for one screen:

static navigationOptions = {
  headerShown: false

Disable header globally in createStackNavigator:

const Home = createStackNavigator(
    headerMode: 'none',


For default Apple-style settings, you only need to provide:

Prop Type Description
title string The title of the header. This will show up as large text inside the scroll view and then fade in as the smaller text inside the header.

From there, you can customize this component to get exactly what you want.

Prop Type Description
titleStyle React Native style or Object Styles the large header title component inside the scroll view.
containerStyle React Native style or Object Styles the entire container wrapping the header and the scrollview.
headerContainerStyle React Native style or Object Styles the container of the header component that appears after scrolling.
headerComponentContainerStyle React Native style or Object Styles the component inside the header. Anything within this style will fade in and out as the scroll position changes.
headlineStyle React Native style or Object Styles the header text inside the header that appears after scrolling.
scrollContainerStyle React Native style or Object Styles the scroll view component.
fadeDirection String When the header component fades, it can fade 'up' or 'down',
scrollViewProps Object Pass any extra props to the scrollView.
