Background Worker Help

#1

Hello,

I have been using Expo and I really need to get a Background service and or worker for my application. It is an alarm app that would need to go off when you set up the alarm.

I looked through the Expo source code and looked through the guide. I don’t see any way to do this.

Please help!

Hi! We have several background processing feature requests, for example https://expo.canny.io/feature-requests/p/background-js-code-execution-in-response-to-push-notifications. At the moment we don’t have an API for background execution, although you can use the local notification API for some similar things: https://docs.expo.io/versions/v18.0.0/sdk/notifications.html#exponotificationsschedulelocalnotificationasynclocalnotification-schedulingoptions
