Error building app locally using turtle-cli


#1

Hi all,

I am using turtle-cli to build an app locally following the guide posted here: https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/distribution/turtle-cli/

My environment is OSX 10.14.1 and I have met the prerequisites on the guide for the needed software.

The build command that I’m running is:

jamesmorad$ turtle build:android --public-url http://`ipconfig getifaddr en0`:8000/android-index.json --keystore-path /path/to/keyfil --keystore-alias my_alias

Where I have a webserver hosting the android-index.json file on the same machine.

The program exits with the following error message:

Any thoughts on what I may be doing wrong here would be very helpful. Thanks!

EDIT:

Digging around a bit, it looks like the first error output points to this line in AndroidShellApp.js:

 // Google sign in
    yield regexFileAsync(/"current_key": "(.*?)"/, `"current_key": "${googleAndroidApiKey}"`, _path.default.join(shellPath, 'app', 'google-services.json'));
    yield regexFileAsync(/"certificate_hash": "(.*?)"/, `"certificate_hash": "${certificateHash}"`, _path.default.join(shellPath, 'app', 'google-services.json'));

Which looks like the app is actually checking my key against something externally. If I generated my key with the Java keytool, do I need to register the key with an Android developer account before I can build an APK?


#2

I sorted out the issue by going through AndroidShellApp and just doing some print statement debugging. It turned out that manifest.android.package was not initially set in my dists/android-index.json because it did not follow the correct naming format. When I updated the package name in app.json, I did not re-expo export to dists and the error was being thrown because manifest.android.package was a member attribute that didn’t exist for that variable. Cheers, and hopefully this helps anyone else down the road.
