DrawerLayoutAndroid

React component that wraps the platform DrawerLayout (Android only). The Drawer (typically used for navigation) is rendered with renderNavigationView and direct children are the main view (where your content goes). The navigation view is initially not visible on the screen, but can be pulled in from the side of the window specified by the drawerPosition prop and its width can be set by the drawerWidth prop.
Example:

render: function() {
  var navigationView = (
    <View style={{flex: 1, backgroundColor: '#fff'}}>
      <Text style={{margin: 10, fontSize: 15, textAlign: 'left'}}>I'm in the Drawer!</Text>
    </View>
  );
  return (
    <DrawerLayoutAndroid
      drawerWidth={300}
      drawerPosition={DrawerLayoutAndroid.positions.Left}
      renderNavigationView={() => navigationView}>
      <View style={{flex: 1, alignItems: 'center'}}>
        <Text style={{margin: 10, fontSize: 15, textAlign: 'right'}}>Hello</Text>
        <Text style={{margin: 10, fontSize: 15, textAlign: 'right'}}>World!</Text>
      </View>
    </DrawerLayoutAndroid>
  );
},
