Expo Components outside the Expo Box


Can I run Expo Components without Expo IDE? This means running directly the app via react-native run-* while importing Expo Components inside my project?



I’m assuming by IDE you mean XDE or exp? No, you won’t be able to use our components without that. I would recommend reading about detach https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/guides/detach.html if you want to compile the iOS and Android apps yourself.


Hi Jesse thank you.
Yes that was what I meant.

By the way. Is there any way to put a full view of the device camera in a background?



Not right now, but we’re working on it!
