In this tutorial we will not start completely from scratch as the aim is to explain our process of creating Flexn template and also showcase the befits of using Flexn Create.

Bootstrap Flexn template

To avoid having to configure plugins, engines and various other settings we will start with @flexn/template, however unlike in quick start we will delete all the src files, meaning we get a fresh start and start focusing on what matters - the multiplatform code.

If you want to learn more about the configurations and plugin management or bootstrapping process, head over to rnv website.

Let's start by creating a new RNV project:

rnv new --projectTemplate @flexn/template
  • Follow the instructions on your cli:
  • Enter you project's name, title, app ID (or skip this step by clicking Enter), version;
  • If you have multiple workspaces available, select rnv:


  • Select the template version you want to use - Latest is recommended;
  • Follow the rest of instructions on your cli;
  • Navigate to your project's folder;
  • Run command below and select your preferable platform to run:
rnv run
  • Follow the rest of instructions on your cli;
  • Now you should see the orginal template (you can see Apple TV example bellow);


The advanced part

In order to understand our process of creating this template and learn more about multiplatform development lets handicap ourselves first by deleting the src folder. You can do that using command below or do it manually via IDE/file manager.

rm -R -f src
