Animated: `useNativeDriver` is not supported because the native animated module is missing.

I am working on expo SDK Version: 36, and on all platforms (ios/android/web)

When installing react-navigation for the first time as described in the documentation and running jest --watch while doing it, and the following warning appeared:

    console.warn node_modules/react-native/Libraries/YellowBox/YellowBox.js:71
      Animated: `useNativeDriver` is not supported because the native animated module is missing. Falling back to JS-based animation. To resolve this, add `RCTAnimation` module to this app, or remove `useNativeDriver`. More info: https://github.com/facebook/react-native/issues/11094#issuecomment-263240420

It also happen in the browser console:

bundle.js:18272 Animated: `useNativeDriver` is not supported because the native animated module is missing. Falling back to JS-based animation.

The last one offers a solution, but it says to open Xcode, while I am on Linux Debian 10. I do not have Xcode. I can use a Macbook and do the step but I am wondering:

  • Should I care when working on Linux?
  • Should I care when working on Macbook (if it happens)?
  • Should I care for the health of my app while testing? Under which circumstances?

Replying to keep this open. Web apps should be leveraging the GPU thread for this if possible. Thanks!

Maybe a feature request would be in order?
