You cannot use the regular uuid package directly in React Native due to its dependency on crypto.getRandomValues, which is not supported in the React Native environment. This code snippet introduces a solution for generating UUIDs (Universally Unique Identifiers) in React Native projects. React Native doesn't come with built-in support for UUID generation. But by using a 3rd party library you can use a comprehensive set of tools for managing UUIDs, ranging from validation to the generation of different UUID versions.
