How to build the app?

I heard about Turtle CLI and Expo CLI and I read a lot of articles like https://github.com/expo/turtle#readme and https://docs.expo.io/distribution/building-standalone-apps/, but still don’t know how to build my app in the right way. I have Windows 10 as OS and I started with expo because I knew that you don’t need to have mac OS to create ios or andriod apps. I have a complate app build in snack. My question is how to just build a hello world snack to .apk or .ipa

Please, can someone make a video about how to build the app just exported from snack to the windows.

Thanks in advance.

To get your app ready to a build, prep your app with and environment. Follow along this guide https://docs.expo.io/workflow/development-mode/

Once you’re ready to build, follow along here to build a .ipa or .apk https://docs.expo.io/distribution/building-standalone-apps/

It is possible for both files to be generated, but to actually upload the .IPA file to the App Store, you will need a Mac-specific app, meaning you will have to have a Mac to upload your app to the app store.

However, from reading your question I don’t think this is what you want to do. I would suggest reading through the Expo Docs and looking at tutorials on YouTube to learn how to export your test app, as this really helped me.
