Does XDE support projects created not from itself?

#1

Got this question:

Does XDE support projects created not from itself?

Hi-
If they are created in CRNA or exp, then those are supported, yes. If you started a project by using those, XDE will just work.

If you started a project with react-native init, you’ll have some work to do to convert over to be able to work with XDE.

You can use the exp convert command to do that. (npm install -g exp to get exp if you don’t already have it).

If you have custom native code, the only way you’ll be able to use XDE is if you use ExpoKit.

In general, its much easier to work with XDE if you use create-react-native-app or XDE or exp to create the project.

Hope that helps!
