The "Invariant Violation" error related to NetInfo in React Native can occur when using @redux-offline/redux-offline in combination with NetInfo from the deprecated react-native-community/react-native-netinfo package. This error is typically encountered when @redux-offline/redux-offline attempts to access the outdated NetInfo module, which has been replaced by the @react-native-community/netinfo package.

To resolve this issue, you should make sure to use the correct package for accessing network connectivity information in your React Native project. Follow these steps to fix the "Invariant Violation" error:

  1. Remove Deprecated react-native-community/react-native-netinfo: If you have react-native-community/react-native-netinfo installed in your project, remove it:

    npm uninstall @react-native-community/react-native-netinfo # or yarn remove @react-native-community/react-native-netinfo
  2. Install @react-native-community/netinfo: Install the correct package @react-native-community/netinfo:

    npm install @react-native-community/netinfo # or yarn add @react-native-community/netinfo
  3. Link Native Modules (if needed): The @react-native-community/netinfo package may require linking native modules. If you haven't done so automatically, follow the instructions provided in the official documentation:

  4. Replace References in Code: In your codebase, replace all references to the deprecated react-native-community/react-native-netinfo package with the new @react-native-community/netinfo.

    For example, replace:

    import NetInfo from 'react-native-community/react-native-netinfo';


    import NetInfo from '@react-native-community/netinfo';
  5. Update Redux Offline Configuration (if needed): If you were using @redux-offline/redux-offline with NetInfo, you might need to adjust the configuration to use @react-native-community/netinfo instead.

  6. Rebuild and Test: After making these changes, rebuild your React Native app and test it to ensure that the "Invariant Violation" error related to NetInfo is resolved.

By using the correct @react-native-community/netinfo package and updating any related configurations, you should be able to resolve the "Invariant Violation" error and access network connectivity information in your React Native app without issues.
