Styles can be passed to components as plain objects, or via StyleSheet.

import { View, StyleSheet } from 'react-sketchapp';

// inline props
<View
  style={{
    backgroundColor: 'hotPink',
    width: 300,
  }}
/>

// plain JS object
const style = {
  backgroundColor: 'hotPink',
  width: 300,
}

<View style={style} />

// StyleSheet
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  foo: {
    backgroundColor: 'hotPink',
    width: 300,
  }
})

<View style={styles.foo} />
<View style={[styles.foo, styles.bar]} />

You can use variables in your styles just like a standard React application:

const colors = {
  Haus: '#F3F4F4',
  Night: '#333',
  Sur: '#96DBE4',
  Peach: '#EFADA0',
  Pear: '#93DAAB',
};

<View>
  {Object.keys(colors).map(name => (
    <View
      key={name}
      style={{
        flex: 1,
        backgroundColor: colors[name],
      }}
    />
  ))}
</View>;
