Does react-native-couchbase-lite plugin will be upgraded to latest couchbase-lite version?

From spec.json in react-native-couchbase-lite plugin, looks it supports Couchbase Lite V 1.3.

Is there any plan for the plugin to support higher version of Couchbase Lite (1.5 or 2.0)?

Which ‘Couchbase Server’ version is compatible to the react-native-couchbase-lite plugin?

@jamiltz, do you have any update please?

It looks ‘couchbaselabs/react-native-couchbase-lite’ is not active for longer period.

Can you please guide how to make ‘react-native-couchbase-lite’ to be compatible to Couchbase Lite version 1.5 or 2.0, so that ReactNative app can use the more recent couchbase lite features.

ReactNative won’t be supported on Couchbase Mobile 2.0. Stay tuned for updates related to this post 2.0. (cc @ssmotra)

Also, note that there is no Couchbase Lite v1.5 . Couchbase Mobile 1.5 is a Sync Gateway only release. See release notes. The latest version of Couchbase Lite is 1.4 and I don’t believe that the spec.json is significantly different between V1.3 and v1.4 …

Thank you @priya.rajagopal. Does Couchbase Moble 2.0 will support ReactNative in the near future?

I have found compatibility matrix from the below link,

I have made react-native-couchbase-lite library to support Couchbase Lite 1.4 with the following changes,

  1. Added dependencies as below in node_modules\react-native-couchbase-lite\android\build.gradle
    dependencies {
    compile 'com.couchbase.lite:couchbase-lite-android:1.4.1’
    compile 'com.couchbase.lite:couchbase-lite-java-listener:1.4.1’
    compile 'com.couchbase.lite:couchbase-lite-java-javascript:1.4.1’
    compile ‘com.facebook.react:react-native:0.14.+’
  2. Converted couchbase-lite.yaml ( to JSON and updated the spec.json in node_modules\react-native-couchbase-lite\spec.json

Thats great. Can you submit your changes for 1.4 as a PR to the appropriate repo.

Support for cross-platform JS is being evaluated for post 2.0 release.

@jamiltz, i have submitted PR to support CB Lite 1.4. Can you please merge the changes to master branch?

That’s been merged now.

For anyone interested I started development of React Native module for Couchbase Lite 1.4, support for version 2.0 is planned. The module is written in Objective C and Java providing maximum performance and feature set. Code is on, documentation is available on


Excellent! Have a star! I’ll be keeping my eye on this to see what comes of it :slight_smile:

Good work. Eagerly waiting for CBL 2.0 support.
