React Native is not only for Android and iOS devices - our partners and the community maintain projects that bring React Native to other platforms, such as:
- React Native macOS - React Native for macOS and Cocoa.
- React Native Windows - React Native for Microsoft's Universal Windows Platform (UWP).
- React Native tvOS - React Native for Apple TV and Android TV devices.
- React Native Web - React Native on the web using React DOM.
- React Native Skia - React Native using Skia as a renderer. Currently supports Linux and macOS.

To register your platform with RNPM, your module's name must match one of these patterns:
react-native-example- It will search all top-level modules that start with
@org/react-native-example- It will search for modules that start with
react-native-under any scope
@react-native-example/module- It will search in all modules under scopes with names starting with
You must also have an entry in your
package.json like this:
"providesModuleNodeModules" is an array of modules that will get added to the Haste module search path, and
"platforms" is an array of platform suffixes that will be added as valid platforms.
