See how quickly you can turn your ideas into performant universal 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 myNewProject
Select your favorite editor, like Atom, VSCode, Sublime Text, Vim, or Emacs, open
yourProject/App.js, and start building! We recommend following the tutorial.
Both iOS and Android come with their own set of platform fonts but if you want to inject some more brand personality into your app, a well picked font can go a long way.
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”.
You probably don’t want to start all of your projects completely from scratch, and the navigation guide is one of many to come from Expo that will hopefully give you a headstart on building your app.
