New detached project cant see icons on release on Android


#1

Hi, i just created a new project using black app and the advanced (ExpoKit) feature of the expo init.

Then added
import { Ionicons } from '@expo/vector-icons';

and added to the render method of the App.js:
<Ionicons name="md-checkmark-circle" size={32} color="green" />

Do expo start

Then i publish using the expo web interface.

When i run it on devKernelDebug build variant it shows the icon, but if i run it on prodKernelRelease (i have to create a keystore to release it) it dont shows the icon.

In IOS its showing the icon on release and debug.

Maybe its a bug?

Yes it’s a bug, I was able to fix it by making the changes linked in this comment: https://github.com/expo/expo/issues/3226#issuecomment-460458263

I assume the next release will fix it
