A problem occurred evaluating project ‘:react-native-reanimated’. > Cannot get property ‘supportLibVersion’ on extra properties extension as it does not exist React Navigation Error Fix

Last Updated on September 26, 2019.

React Navigation is the most popular navigation library used in react native projects. Today, I created a new react native project with the latest version 0.61.1. Then I installed react navigation library (version 4.0.10) by following instructions from their official documentation. But when I tried to run the project an error had shown as below:

Yes, the issue is with react native animated library (version 1.2.0) which I installed among react navigation dependencies. This error forced me a Google search and I got here. The current solution for this react native react navigation issue is as follows.

Go to YourProject/android/build.gradle file and add supportLibVersion = “28.0.0” to the ext {} as given below:

ext {
        buildToolsVersion = "28.0.3"
        minSdkVersion = 16
        compileSdkVersion = 28
        targetSdkVersion = 28
        supportLibVersion = "28.0.0"
    }

Now, re run the project and the issue would be gone.
