See how quickly you can turn your ideas into performant cross-platform apps before installing a thing.
Get started with Node to use everything in the JS ecosystem, including Expo and React Native. We recommend using the latest Node version.
You will run this tool locally to package, serve, and publish your projects.
npm install expo-cli --global
You will be asked to create an Expo account before proceeding.
expo init my-new-project
Select your favorite editor, like Atom, VSCode, Sublime Text, Vim, or Emacs, open
your-project/App.js, and start building! We recommend following the Up and Running tutorial.
As trendy as it is these days, not every app has to use emoji for all icons 😳 — maybe you want to pull in a popular icon set, we've got you covered.
Not everybody wants to tell their customers or friends to download Expo to use their app; You want to be able to have the app on its own from the App Store and Play Store. We call these “shell apps” or “standalone apps”.
There are three main steps to wiring up push notifications: sending a user’s Expo Push Token to your server, calling Expo’s Push API with the token when you want to send a notification, and responding to receiving and/or selecting the notification in your app.
