Integrate Drawer inside Stack Navigation in React Native

I wanted to use more than one navigation in a React Native app. The documentation didn’t give a clear way to implement this.

Here is what you can do on purpose to add several types of navigation in your React Native app:

import { createStackNavigator, createDrawerNavigator } from 'react-navigation';
import * as Screens from './screens/index';
import Drawer from './components/DrawerMenu';
import getDrawerWidth from './utils/scale';

const AppStackNavigator = createStackNavigator({
  home: {
    screen: Screens.MainScreen,
  about: {
    screen: Screens.AboutScreen,

const AppNavigator = createDrawerNavigator(
    home: {
       screen: AppStackNavigator,
    contentComponent: Drawer,
    drawerWidth: getDrawerWidth,
    headerMode: 'none',

export default AppNavigator;
