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.
You will run this tool locally to package, serve, and publish your projects.
npm install exp --global
You will be asked to create an Expo account before proceeding.
exp 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.
Snack allows you to run code in the browser
in a matter of seconds. No downloads required.
For those who don't prefer a command line interface,
develop and publish React Native projects with a friendly GUI.
You can then set breakpoints, inspect variables, execute code, etc, as you would when debugging a web app.
A splash screen, also known as a launch screen, is the first screen that a user sees when opening your app, and it stays visible while the app is loading.
In addition to XDE we also have a CLI exp if you prefer to work on the command line or want to use Expo in tests or continuous integration.
