I have a bare workflow app with expo-updates and I’m trying to understand how I can ship a large image with the native app and ensure that it’s not shipped again in later updates.
My current understanding is that with updates, as long as we have expo-asset, there’s two choices for how images are shipped: any assets included under
assetBundlePatterns are downloaded as part of the update, and any assets required by code that aren’t in
assetBundlePatterns is lazily loaded from the CDN on demand.
This says that expo knows not to re-upload to CDN if assets haven’t changed: https://docs.expo.io/guides/assets/#in-production. But does that also mean that if files are in
assetBundlePatterns, expo knows not to include those assets in future update downloads if they haven’t changed? Even if the first release to include them was a no-publish native release?
