An offline storage extension that records events in AsyncStorage when offline, and resyncs them when back online. The extension adds a timestamp to each saved extension under the timeSaved key.

Like all offline storage extensions, this extension expects that you're already storing a connectivity flag in your app's state.


npm install --save @redux-beacon/offline-react-native


import OfflineReactNative from '@redux-beacon/offline-react-native';


Step 1

The first step is to track the connection status in your state. Here's an example of how you would do so using NetInfo:

import { NetInfo } from 'react-native';

const initialState = {
  isConnected: true, // by default the app is assumed to have a connection

function reducer(state = initialState, action) {
  switch (action.type) {
      return Object.assign({}, state, { isConnected: action.payload });
      return state;

// add event listeners to update the connectivity flag when the
// connection status changes
NetInfo.isConnected.addEventListener('change', (isConnected) => {
    payload: isConnected,

Step 2

Create a connectivity selector that accepts the state, and returns your app's connection status:

const isConnected = state => state.isConnected;

The connectivity selector should return a boolean:

  • true when the app is online

  • false when the app is offline

Step 3

Initialize the extension and provide it when creating the middleware:

import { AsyncStorage } from 'react-native';
import offlineReactNative from '@redux-beacon/offline-react-native';

// Pass the connectivity selector from Step 2 as the second parameter
const offlineStorage = offlineReactNative(AsyncStorage, isConnected);

// Create or import an events map and target.
// See "getting started" pages for instructions.

const middleware = createMiddleware(eventsMap, target, { offlineStorage });

Now, whenever your app loses connection, your analytics events will now be saved offline until it regains its connection.
