EAS Build Error (Android)

Hello Everybody,

I am farily new at this. I’m trying to build with EAS build --platform android, and it gives me this log errors:

Path to release keystore file is already set, ignoring ‘credentials.json’

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
  • Where:
Script '/usr/local/lib/node_modules/@expo/eas-build-worker/workingdir/build/node_modules/expo-updates/scripts/create-manifest-android.gradle' line: 38
  • What went wrong:
A problem occurred configuring project ':app'.

Cannot add task ‘createDebugExpoManifest’ as a task with that name already exists.


Can somebody please help me? Thank you!

Hi! what version of expo-updates are you using, and can you share your build.gradle?

Hello!

Thank you for the reply.

I was able to re do my whole app, and this error is gone.

However, now it shows another errors:
(I’m using a react native bare project, with unimodules)
(I’m also using backendless npm as backend service)

hi there, that error isn’t particularly useful for us. are you able to run a release build successfully locally?

Hello! Thank you for replying.

Also no… :frowning:

it gives this error below… Do you know what this might be?

Couldn’t find a ‘credentials.json’ file, skipping release keystore configuration

apply from: "./eas-build.gradle"

is included in your build.gradle twice

  • if you added it manually remove one of the occurrences
  • if eas command did that please provide actual build.gradle file

and for future reference do not post files/logs/code this way, it’s very hard to read it in this form and you are potentially removing important information that may be necessary to debug a problem, use some external services instead.

you can sync your credentials to local machine as described here Syncing credentials between remote and local sources - Expo Documentation

Hello!

After i created the credentials, i was able to build a release version of the app locally. But still can’t do an EAS build… :confused:

Hello! Can you please check my build.gradle?

I don’t have

apply from: “./eas-build.gradle”

twice…

Thank you!

@dijay - compare your example to a working minimal build.gradle that you would get from running expo init, choosing a bare app, then configuring with eas build: build.gradle · GitHub

Hello!

I have compared and the files are the same… I really don’t know what’s wrong :sob:

can you share your project on github? i’m brentvatne there

Just invited. I am diogopotes

hi there,

i looked at your project and it has build errors that are unrelated to eas build that i don’t have time to help with.

you should get your app running locally first. it looks like react-native-backendless isn’t properly configured, among other things. good luck!

Hello.

I figured that out… but the thing is that locally I can run it. Anyway, i’m gonna try to solve this.
Thank you anyway.
