Get All Database React Native

If you're looking to retrieve all databases in a React Native application, there are a few ways to do so. Here are two ways to get all databases in React Native:

Method 1: Using SQLite Plugin

React Native has a SQLite plugin that you can use to access databases on both iOS and Android devices. Here's how to retrieve all databases using this plugin:

import SQLite from 'react-native-sqlite-storage';


// Get all databases
SQLite.showAll((databases) => {

In this code, we first import the SQLite plugin and enable debugging and promises. We then use the plugin's showAll() method to retrieve all databases, and log them to the console.

Method 2: Using Native Modules (Android Only)

If you're using React Native on an Android device, you can also retrieve all databases using native modules. Here's how:

// Add this to your file
import android.database.Cursor;
import android.database.sqlite.SQLiteDatabase;
import android.provider.ContactsContract;

public class MainActivity extends ReactActivity {
  private static final String[] COLUMNS = { ContactsContract.Data._ID, ContactsContract.Data.DISPLAY_NAME };

  public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    // Get all databases
    Cursor c = getContentResolver().query(ContactsContract.Data.CONTENT_URI, COLUMNS, null, null, null);
    if (c != null) {
      while (c.moveToNext()) {
        int id = c.getInt(c.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Data._ID));
        String name = c.getString(c.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Data.DISPLAY_NAME));
        Log.d("DATABASE", "ID: " + id + ", Name: " + name);

  // ...

In this code, we first import the necessary Android classes and define a COLUMNS array with the columns we want to retrieve from the database. We then use the getContentResolver().query() method to retrieve all databases, and log them to the console.

Both of these methods should retrieve all databases in a React Native application. Choose the one that works best for your specific use case.
