Android Device keeps disconnecting from Expo

#1

The Device keeps disconnecting. The screen DOES show connected but only connects temporally. I am using the available snacks on your site like…demo, rude popcorn etc. to run on my device but THEY never run SUCCESSFULLY on my device the message is… ‘something went wrong. You can go back to Expo home or try to reload.’… I have reloaded many times. THANKS FOR ANY HELP

Hey @lwellington!

The snacks are working over on my end. Are you trying to run them on the simulator, or on your own device (also, Android or iOS)?

If you’re not running through the simulator, I would check to make sure you have updated the Expo Client on your device

I have tried both. I have Expo app on the Android, start the App, go to Projects, select a snack, for example select “supported yogurt” and I only get the message “Change code in editor and watch it change on the phone…….!” Plus I get the Box logo. Can I just use the simulator on the site? At least to know something works? If I select the Appetize does that mean to use the simulator on the site? If I select APPETIZER ITS ASKING TO SIGN IN. Is the Appetizer needed to see the code run on the site simulator?

Thank you,

Lourdes Wellington

For example if I try the Android device I see DEVICES CONNECTED “1” on the webste SNACK page and I received a message “Unfortunately Expo stopped” when running a snack .

Thanks for your help,

Would be helpful if you could send us a link to the snack or snacks that’s you’re experiencing the issue with.
The simulator should broadly work the same as on a real phone (modulo whatever device APIs like camera that don’t do anything interesting on the simulator)

This the one I tried today

This one I just tried and received message Expo has stopped. And told it to open again…… With no success

If you click on view error log at the bottom of this screen, you can get some more information that may help diagnose the issue


In this case:

and indeed, ‘left’ is not a valid value for justifyContent (https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/flexbox#justify-content)

I find the docs to be not the best for internalizing flexbox. https://flexboxfroggy.com/ is great :slight_smile:

Before I did check the view error messages. However, the snacks I have tried without me changing them have given me the same errors. Can you sent me a snack that you know works and see what happens at my end.

Thanks,
