warning in React Native

Although most React Native warnings should be fixed, sometimes you just need to disable them. For example, some third party packages generate warnings and cannot be updated. In these cases, you can either disable all yellow warning boxes or only specific types.

Disable all yellow warnings

You can disable all yellow warning boxes with the following:

jsx
1.console.disableYellowBox = true;

Place this in your root project entry file, usually, index.js.

Disabled specific yellow warnings

You can disable specific warnings by importing the YellowBox component and using the ignoreWarnings method. ignoreWarnings takes an array of strings representing the type of warnings you want to ignore.

jsx
1.import { YellowBox } from "react-native";
2.YellowBox.ignoreWarnings(["Warning: "]);

Example: Ignore “Remote debugger is in background” warning

The warning “Remote debugger is in a background tab which may cause apps to perform slowly” is an especially annoying warning box, which can be disabled by passing in the full string into the array passed to ignoreWarnings.

jsx
1.import { YellowBox } from "react-native";
2.YellowBox.ignoreWarnings([
3. "Remote debugger is in a background tab which may cause apps to perform slowly",
4.]);
