Installation
API Reference
The current component is functioning as expected, but we have decided to rebuild it entirely to align with our vision and enhance its performance. It is primarily based on React Native, and while we have made minimal modifications so far, our upcoming rebuild will involve significant changes to ensure it closely matches our desired structure and meets our objectives.
This is an illustration of Switch component.
