Deep Linking in React Native Using Firebase Dynamic Links

Sharing the link of a web page containing information in a Web or Mobile Application is standard functionality for users to get easy access to the application. For sharing and rendering the link, we use to execute the incoming link URL.

In this blog, we will see how to handle the link in web application in ReactJS with

What is Deep link

A deep link is a link that takes you to content. Most web links are deep links.

The first step in branch link into creating a branch link, to create a branch link you to get here introduction of creating and execution of branch links.

For creating this branch link No matter which approach (or approaches) you choose to create Branch links, you can always associate each link with data.

In this blog, I am going to show the execution of an already created branch link on a web browser. Let’s explore how to implement deep linking in react applications.

React Routing

We are using the create-react-app to create the app.

npm create-react-app deep-link-react
cd deep-link-react

To install the react-router you need to download the react-router-dom package by running the following commands.

npm install react-router-dom
npm start //to run dev server

Let’s create a component.


import React from 'react';
class DeepLink extends React.Component {
render() {
<h1>Link Page</h1>}
export default DeepLink

App.js file

import React from 'react'
class App extends React.Component {
render() {
return (<h1>Home</h1>
export default App

Now our app has two components one is app component and other is Deeplink component.
Now add the routing part in index.js file
Open the index.js file and import the created two components

import React from 'react'
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom'
import './index.css'
import { Route, Link, BrowserRouter as Router } from 'react-router-dom'
import App from './App'
import DeepLink from './deepLink
const routing = (
<Route path="/" component={App} />
<Route path="/shared-link" component={DeepLink} />
ReactDOM.render(routing, document.getElementById('root'))

Now you can the run localhost:3000/shared-link to render the deepLink component.

Example of deep link in a component
We are considering a shared link – https://app-name/shared-link

Which is able to share

On rendering deepLink components with the help of component lifecycle using componentDidMount we are going to run the code for getting the data from the link.

import React from 'react';
class DeepLink extends React.Component {
(function(b, r, a, n, c, h, _, s, d, k) {
if (!b[n] || !b[n]._q) {
for (; s < _.length; ) c(h, _[s++]);
d = r.createElement(a);
d.async = 1;
d.src = "";
k = r.getElementsByTagName(a)[0];
k.parentNode.insertBefore(d, k);
b[n] = h;
function(b, r) {
b[r] = function() {
b._q.push([r, arguments]);
{ _q: [], _v: 1 },

// eslint-disable-next-line no-undef
branch.init(BRANCHKEY, function(err, data) {
//api call
render() {
return <h1>link page</h1>
export default DeepLink

Add code as it is in componentDidMount and change the BRANCHKEY to your key.



Now with the help of this blog, we get how to execute the branch link in a web browser in react js using branch IO web SDK and react-routing.

Note: We are considering that we already created a branch link that is going to execute in the browser.  Share your queries about the branch deep linking in react-native in the comment section.
