1. Including the SDK

React Native

Install the Sentiance Core React Native module, by running the following command in your terminal, inside the project directory:

npm install @sentiance-react-native/core

The module should now be added to your project's package.json file.

  "dependencies": {
    "@sentiance-react-native/core": "^6.x.x"

The @sentiance-react-native/core module must be installed before using any other Sentiance service.


All Sentiance modules support autolinking, which is available since React Native v0.60, the minimum supported React Native version by Sentiance. Autolinking takes care of discovering and linking the native code dependencies to your project.

iOS Setup

In the terminal, run the following command inside your project's ios directory:

pod install --repo-update
Building for the arm64 (M1 Mac) simulator

The Sentiance SDK itself supports the arm64 simulator architecture. However, the SDK has a dependency on TensorFlow Lite v2.7.0, which does not support arm64 simulators. To address this limitation, use our custom TensorFlow Lite v2.7.0 framework. In your Podfile, add the following entry:

pod 'TensorFlowLiteC', :podspec => 'https://sentiance-u1-sdk-downloads.s3.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/ios/frameworks/TensorFlowLiteC/2.7.0/TensorFlowLiteC.podspec'

More information about this custom framework can be found on this page.

Android setup

Add the Sentiance maven repository to the build.gradle file in your project's android directory:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url "https://repository.sentiance.com" }

This will allow Gradle to find and download the necessary native Sentiance SDK libraries.
