Installation instructions for expo-dev

#1

I ran into the problem with blacklist when running ./tools/setup, but right after I posted this I found a proposed workaround. Since it appears I can’t delete the topic once posted, I’ll leave it here with the link to the workaround.

Error encountered:

expo-dev is a bit of an internal experiment for some of the contributors we work with but we switched them over to using our main codebase and expo-dev doesn’t work right now. We have some internal work to get expo-dev working better but right now it doesn’t work out of the box.
