Intercom integration

#1

Would Expo consider including Intercom? Intercom doesn’t seem to provide a ReactNative library, but they do provide a Cordova library that wraps their iOS and Android libraries: https://github.com/intercom/intercom-cordova

Hey @donkm! Thank you for writing in, I’ve done some research that probably overlaps with yours.

I imagine you are looking for the equivalent of https://github.com/intercom/intercom-cordova in React Native. There is https://github.com/tinycreative/react-native-intercom which is the closest thing.

In order to use a native module that Expo doesn’t currently support, you’ll need to detach for now. You can find the documentation here: https://docs.expo.io/versions/v17.0.0/guides/detach.html

Hi @jimmylee,

As we discussed in Slack, I was hoping we wouldn’t have to detach from Expo. My understanding after a previous exchange with @ccheever is that you were willing to consider packaging Intercom with Expo. Is that on the roadmap?
