React Native

On this page, we get you up and running with Sentry's React Native SDK, automatically reporting errors and exceptions in your application. If you prefer to follow video instructions, see How to Install the Sentry React Native SDK in 60 Seconds.

If you don't already have an account and Sentry project established, head over to, then return to this page.

Sentry captures data by using an SDK within your application's runtime. These are platform-specific and allow Sentry to have a deep understanding of how your application works.

To install, run @sentry/wizard:

npx @sentry/wizard@latest -s -i reactNative

Sentry Wizard will patch your project accordingly, though you can set up manually if you prefer. You only need to patch the project once. Then you can add the patched files to your version control system.

The following tasks will be performed by the Sentry Wizard

  • Install the @sentry/react-native package.
  • Enable the Sentry React Native Gradle build step for Android to auto-upload generated source maps and debug symbols.
  • Wrap the Bundle React Native code and images Xcode project build phase script to upload generated source maps and collect bundled node modules.
  • Add Upload Debug Symbols to Sentry Xcode project build phase.
  • Run pod install.
  • Store build credentials in ios/ and android/
  • Configure Sentry for the supplied DSN in your App.tsx file.

If you're using Expo, read our docs to learn how to add Sentry to your Expo project. This SDK will work for both managed and bare projects.

To capture all errors, initialize the Sentry React Native SDK as soon as possible.

import * as Sentry from "@sentry/react-native";

  dsn: "",
  // Set tracesSampleRate to 1.0 to capture 100% of transactions for tracing.
  // We recommend adjusting this value in production.
  tracesSampleRate: 1.0,
  _experiments: {
    // profilesSampleRate is relative to tracesSampleRate.
    // Here, we'll capture profiles for 100% of transactions.
    profilesSampleRate: 1.0,

To automatically instrument your app with touch event tracking and automatic tracing, wrap it with Sentry.wrap:

export default Sentry.wrap(App);

This is not required if your app does not have a single parent "App" component.

Verify that your app is sending events to Sentry by adding the following snippet, which includes an intentional error. You should see the error reported in Sentry within a few minutes.

throw new Error("My first Sentry error!");
