Linking: What is the meaning of adding '+' in deep link?

#1

https://docs.expo.io/versions/v26.0.0/workflow/linking

  • Published app in Expo client: exp://exp.host/@community/with-webbrowser-redirect/+
  • Published app in standalone: myapp://+
  • Development: exp://wg-qka.community.app.exp.direct:80/+

Why is ‘+’ needed? It is not documented and seems not an usual case for apps outside expo.

Right after your quoted part, the page indicates:

You will notice that at the end of each URL there is a /+ – anything after the /+ is to be used by your app to receive data, which we will talk about in the next section.

The page you linked is documentation, so this is documented… To clarify: the + separates the app’s URI from your own custom data to add to the URI.

We’ll be rolling out some changes in SDK 27 which obviate the need for the weird +.
