Is there a way of implementing periodic background tasks?


#1

I found this implementation: https://github.com/jamesisaac/react-native-background-task but was wondering if Expo has a native solution for background processes.


background tasks need to be performed for syncing of data

We don’t have this yet, but plan to build it. Please vote on https://expo.canny.io/feature-requests/p/background-tasks-support !

Ah ok, thank you! Do you know if libraries like the one I linked would be compatible with my expo app?


#4

I think that’ll work if you detach to ExpoKit, but unfortunately background tasks do require native code generally, so until we’ve built the feature it probably won’t be possible while un-detached :(.


#5

Gotcha. Do you have an idea about the timeline for adding background task support to Expo?


#6

as soon as we can, we don’t have any hard timeline right now but this is an important priority
