Expo EAS Guide
Moropo has first-class integration with Expo's EAS build and deployment system. If your app uses React Native and you're looking for ways to improve your deployment speed and reliability then EAS is a great way to do that.
Note: this method is suitable for React Native apps only.
If you are unfamiliar with dev clients, we recommend reading Expo's docs: Read Expo's guide on EAS dev clients
Why use EAS with Moropo?
A typical native build takes 10-30 minutes depending on the build server and your app. If you wish to run an end-to-end regression suite every time a new Pull Request is made, then minimising build time enables quicker test feedback on the PR.
In the best scenarios, feedback time on PR for the full end-to-end regression suite reduces from 30+ minutes to under 5 minutes.
How to set it up
Step 1: Produce an EAS Dev Client
- Follow Expo's instructions on producing a dev client
- Ensure you build for emulator and simulator
- You should now have an
.apk(for Android emulator) and
.app(for iOS Simulator)
Step 2: Upload into Moropo
- Pass the files to your Early Access team who will manage the upload for you.
Step 3: Hook into GitHub (optional)
- Speak to the Early Access team who can assist with GitHub setup. This will allow Moropo to automatically publish to your dev client on each new PR.
