Can we make Camera like Instagram with Expo? (See this Image)

#1

Do you think it’s possible with Expo (React Native)? Any example github page source code?
Any advice will be highly appreciated.

THANKS

Ya you can do that. Think about how you’d arrange it in your views. That row of three button, I would probably do that with zIndex and flex-end on a flex row.

These references may be helpful:

React Native CameraRoll
Api that lets you access the camera roll so you can display it on the bottom of the screen

Expo ImagePicker
Expo api that lets you open up the camera/pick a photo. (Could also use the Camera component)

You could display the camera roll on the bottom half of the screen, with the top half of the screen being a camera that can take your picture. Should be fun to play around with and find a layout that you like!
