My question is While building expo app what is the need to publish the static files to an URL(either expo CDN / hosting on own server)
So I think I will be having the following cases to address their concern
Case 1 - Host the app on my own server and build stanalone using expo build service
A.) When I host the app on my own server use expo build services I will download the app from “expo.io” . Here what is actually happening? Will expo store my app bundle on their server/CDN.
Case 2 - Host the app on my own server and using turtlle CLI to build the stand alone
B.) when I run
turtle-cli build:ios --public-url https://f50801ca.ngrok.io/dist/ios-index.json
imageUrl, iconUrl, bundleUrl in the index.json will point to the server where I hosted those files.
After creating .ipa file suppose if I kill the server. Then how my app will behave ?
Can you please address A & B.
