Feature Support

Runtime versions that start supporting new Rive features

This article is out of date! Find the new version here.

As our Rive editor grows to support more features and toolsets in making Rive assets, sometimes our runtimes need to be updated to support these updates. These editor additions may or may not introduce an API change or feature. You may need to update the runtime version to support these features. Check below to see if a feature your Rive asset takes advantage of is supported at runtime yet or not. We generally recommend you are on the latest version of the runtimes to take advantage of follow-on bug fixes and new features. We may include notes on migrating to newer versions if a new feature warrants recent API changes.

Notes

  • rive-react - Starting in v3.0.0 the React runtime has split into two different published packages; @rive-app/react-canvas and @rive-app/react-webgl, each wrapping the respective @rive-app/canvas and @rive-app/webgl web runtimes. We recommend using @rive-app/react-canvas

  • @rive-app/webgl - There is a new flag here, useOffscreenRenderer which is off by default. This flag will allow you to work around the various browser constraints on the number of WebGL contexts created. We highly recommend setting this option to true when instantiating Rive in the high-level API. See more here: https://github.com/rive-app/rive-wasm#other-notes.

  • rive-react-native - Starting in v3.0.0, it will have a minimum iOS 14.0 support

No extra code is needed to support listeners, and you do not need to invoke listeners via event listener/detector code at runtime. If the Rive file has a listener as part of the state machine at design time, the runtime library has implicit event listener/detector code to trigger the listeners at the appropriate time

Mesh Deformation Support

  • Regarding web-based runtimes and meshes:

    • Keep in mind that as meshes grow across larger screen areas, they become more resource-heavy on some devices

    • Avoid complex transforms repeatedly on the <canvas> elements that display Rive animations (or <RiveComponent /> in the React runtimes)

    • We recommend using @rive-app/webgl to display mesh on Firefox for best performance

Raster Asset Support

RuntimeVersion

**(Web) @rive-app/canvas

>= 1.0.2

**(Web) @rive-app/webgl

>= 1.0.2

**React

>= 0.0.28

React Native

>= 2.1.36

Flutter

>= 0.8.1

iOS

>= 1.0.1

Android

>= 2.0.5

C++

Supported

Notes

  • For the web runtimes, we have deprecated rive-js and moved to a multi-package setup for a JS runtime that runs against the context2d and webgl renderer:

    • Note that the new web runtime packages all support raster assets, and the high-level JS API did not change in this migration

    • @rive-app/canvas - Renders Rive with a CanvasRenderingContext2D renderer

    • @rive-app/webgl - Renders Rive with a WebGLRenderingContext renderer.

    • We recommend using the @rive-app/canvas dependency, but check here to see which might fit your needs better
