Integrating Real-Time Collaboration into Your React Native Application

PSPDFKit Instant for React Native makes it easy to add real-time collaboration features to your PSPDFKit-powered app. It allows users to seamlessly share, edit, and annotate PDF documents across Android, iOS, and web apps.

Requirements

PSPDFKit for React Native with Instant

PSPDFKit for React Native supports Instant by default. No additional setup is required on the client side. To run Instant, provide the server URL and the JSON Web Token (JWT) from the server that contains the user authentication, permissions, and Instant layers.

Document Engine Instance

To set up a Document Engine instance and set up an example project, follow the getting started guide.

  1. Go to the PSPDFKit Web demo page.

  2. Click the Collaborate in Real-time button in the top-left corner.

  3. A dialog appears with a collaboration URL and a QR code.

  4. Run the React Native Catalog example on an emulator or a physical device.
