Initialize Gameball Player Profile

Show your user's profile including all details, user challenges, and the leaderboard on React-native app.
Showing the GameBall widget on your mobile application is slightly different than showing it on the website. You have two options; first, if you want to design your customer interface, you will use our set of REST APIs. To know more information, you can follow this guide. The other option as this section elaborates, is through using our react native SDK.
Using the SDK, you can open the Gameball player profile from a button in your app, programmatically when someone does something, or from a persistent button that sits over your app’s UI.
When you trigger the Gameball player profile, your player is presented with a home screen. This is configurable inside Gameball to change how it looks and what’s presented.
From there, your player can check his progress across different Gameball programs as per your configurations.
To show the Gameball player profile that contains the user details, user challenges, and the leaderboard use the below steps.
import {GameballWidget} from 'react-native-gameball';
There are two ways to view the widget.

Show as standalone screen

<GameballWidget />

Show as Modal

<GameballWidget
modal={true}
/>
and then to open the widget you need to call the showProfile function on the ref property of the widget

Example on running the widget as a Modal:

Class component

return (
<View style={{ flex: 1 }}>
<Button
title={'open widget'}
onPress={() => this.widget.showProfile()}
/>
<GameballWidget
ref={(ref) => this.widget = ref}
modal={true}
/>
</View>
)

Functional component

const ref = createRef();
return (
<View>
<Button title="Open modal" onPress={() => ref.current.showProfile()} />
<GameballWidget modal={true} ref={ref} />
</View>
)
In certain scenarios, where you offer a product as a free reward, you might want to showcase this product within the GameBall widget along with a deep link. When users click on the deep link, they will be seamlessly redirected to the product page within your app, where they can obtain more information and take further action. To enable this functionality, you need to follow the steps outlined below.
  1. 1.
    Create a custom GameBall widget that is based on the default widget and implemented as a ForwardRefRenderFunction.
  2. 2.
    Override the WebView's 'onShouldStartLoadWithRequest' event with a customized implementation.
    • In this implementation, detect URLs that begin with '{your_app_deep_link_prefix}://' to identify deep links specific to your app.
    • Handle these deep links using the main app's action to process and dispatch them, instead of relying on the WebView."
